Blurry Pictures

Boston Rachel, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this Sony camera in November 2011 from Amazon after I lost my Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS 12.1 MP Digital Camera. I've always stayed loyal to Canon but after spending a lot of money on a camera and losing it, I decided to buy a cheaper point and shoot. That was a mistake. The camera has good features: smile detection, face detection and panoramic pictures. The quality of the pictures comes out only 20% of the time.

Flash is too bright

  • Summary: This camera is simple to use however the flash is WAY too bright and there is no "soft flash" setting so all indoor party shots, or out door night shots (when I take pictures the most) come out all washed out :(

Nice camera, but leaves a lot to be desired.

Von1961, Amazon

  • Summary: Takes very nice, high quality photos if that's all you're looking for. I found that some of the controls are inconvenient, such as the on/off button...it's too small and flat with the frame, making it hard to turn on/off. Also, I do not like that there's no mechanism for a direct upload to my iMac?? Price is very attractive, but, the missing features would be worth a few extra dollars. Sorry...not a big fan of those camera.

Disappointed in image quality

Consumer, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: I had tested it in the store because I was looking for a camera without so much lag time like our old one. I was excited to get it because it's ready to go within a couple seconds after turning it on, the auto-focus is quick, and it's very quick in between shots. We ordered the camera just before a trip to Disneyland where we took a lot of pictures but once I had a chance to review the pictures we had taken it was very disappointing.

  • Summary: I had it for just one month when i started hearing a grinding noice when turned on. Picture quality was also bad. A lot of blurred pictures and bad lighting. So bad I gave it to my 4 year old as a toy.

Poor quality, even for the price

Anne-Marie, Amazon

  • Summary: Beware - this camera does NOT have a macro feature. It has been replaced (compared to older model Sony Cyber Shots) with a smile detection feature (who even needs that?). The test shots I did were poor quality, even with the camera automatically detecting and choosing settings. The camera is very small, so rather than turning a dial to the feature you want, you have to flip through digital menus.

Don't like it :(

  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace a Canon one I had lost. Its appearance looks cheaper to me. The screen has a fuzzy line across it like a busted plasma tv that it got just from being in my purse while in its case... Now I have to buy another replacement.

Not good for photographing children

MomtoTwoCincy, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this camera hoping it'd be the perfect addition to my purse- the camera I could use it to catch shots of my children at the park, birthday parties, etc. But the only pro to this camera is that it is easy to use. It's super slow and hard to focus. There were so many pictures that I missed because it took too long to take the picture (and, as you know, kids don't quite sit still).

Not as good as its predecessors

Malaya, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: Sometimes SONY name is enough for the quality. And for those who have used DSC camera is in the beginning would look no other. But this one seems to have gone retrogressive evolution, basing on the general trend. Outside its megapixel has increased to 14 which actually does not matter, (5 is enough for regular view, including post card prints). But many good features are missing. Its 'i' intelligent mode has replaced most of the modes. Sometimes it just doesnt work.
