Excerpt: I bought this camera for my 13 year old daughter, as it is her first camera I didn't really think to much into it, just was walking around the store wondering what to buy her and ended up in the electronics section, as you do. hahaha. and I though well why not buy her a camera, saw a pink sony Dsc-w 530 and thought yeah, sony, digi cam this will do... so the next day she opened her present and we went outside to try it out.
Excerpt: The panoramic shot is something very unique. I have to say that it took me a little while to get the hang of this. I can take a picture of a whole room in this mode. Problem is you have to have a very steady hand and move slow. It is an awesome feature but takes a bit to get used to All in all I say Sony cameras are a great buy, they come very affordable and are great quality. This camera is perfect for my family!
Summary: I am a person who takes pictures at parties or on vacation and so for me this Camera provides me with everything I need. I previously owned a Nikon digital Camera and while it took good pictures the start up time was slow and the picture taking speed was the same. I do not have that problem with this camera! It turns on fast and takes good pictures quickly. The only bad part about this camera is the zoom.
Pros: Fast Start up, fast picture taking, lightweight, picture colors very true, inexpensive, good picture quality
Cons: Doesn't zoom very far, not many picture settings but the one that it has are typically the only ones I've ever used
