Excerpt: You start to notice time slipping by and the children growing up, it seems all the more important to capture those special moments in film and have something to hold on to. I have a terrible memory so I love having photos around the house and in albums to remind me of special events and happy times that I have shared with friends and family.
Summary: This is a neat compact camera which takes excellent photos. You can get in real close for detail or zoom in. The pictures are clear and sharp. It is easy and straight forward to use. It is light which is good but that is probably due to it being a bit plastic. I would recommend a case to protect it.
Summary: I like the 14.1 mp sony camera that i bought bcos i love taking pics. sadly the timer aspect of it causes me to be discouraged. when i tried it a few times, i was really disappointed as the placing of the camera to take the photos were blurry for a 14.1 mp sony camera. if people held the camera and took pics, it would snap well but timing it alone to snap will not work and give you the clarity you deserve.
Summary: i used to love sony camera's but they get dearer and tatty as time goes on? sony came ras are now what they were? i had a w50 6 years ago lovely little camera? i go for panasonic lumix lieca lens and made like camera's used to be? get a grip sony????????????
Summary: Have owned a few Sony compacts (P-150 and P-200)over the last 7 years or so and had become used to the solid chunky feel of my previous cameras. The W520 is for me too light, it has no quality feel to it, is obviously plastic and just feels cheap. I bought unseen as I needed the camera for work in the oilfield overseas as the on/off button on the P200 had started acting up (I've taken thousands of photos without missing a beat).
Summary: Hi, I ordered an Sony DSCW520 Cyber-shot Digital Still Camera - Black (14.5MP, 5x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD based on the assumption it is 14.5 MP as advertised on Amazon.com. When I received the product it is only 14.1MP even the invoice and packing slip says 14.5MP. I am disappointed to receiving a product whic is advertised wrongly!! Would you please guide me to go further?
Summary: A cheap camera and you can tell as soon as you open the box. Cheap plastic body and poor picture quality, shots in sunlight are overexposed and blurred. Shutter speed is slow creating a little camera shake. Having owned 2 Sony Cybershots prior to this one I expected better but quality seems to have gone downhill with this one. Probably the worst camera ever produced by Sony.
Summary: This is probably the worst camera I have ever used, and a complete waste of money. If everything in the picture you are taking is not 100% still than your photo comes out blurred. Do not buy!!!
