Excerpt: I bought it in silver colour. Not in violet. Than it looks good and expensive. I like the small size. I use it for fast pictures on a fair or in the city. Most time in the fast in the automatic mode. I brought it as a memo camera. Now I use my more and more my iphone. Pictures are not so perfect when I use the fast automatic mode, sometimes wrong focus point, sometimes not sharp. My Samsung NV10 make more good pictures in the automatic mode. I am not happy with this cam.
Summary: Takes good pictures. Some turn out a little blurry at times. I always had problems with the on/off switch. I had to push it several times to turn the camera on. The on/off switch finally broke after 2 years. Would not buy a camera again with that kind of on/off switch.
Summary: Okay - takes nice pictures, but my rating reflects that the little clip that holds the battery in place partially broke after just a few uses. And, it wasn't being abused; it just broke as it was being used as instructed. Thankfully, there is still just enough left to hold the battery in, but I always treat it very gingerly.
Summary: so i bought this item as a present to my mom and she's VERY careful with things btw, one day she said that the camera just won't work, i looked and it wouldnt take pics anymore or even open...
Summary: Very unhappy with the limited flash settings and un-crisp, indoor pictures. HD video is nice, but incompatible with my older laptop. I wish I had not bought this camera. Like the W220 Sony much, much more. On Ebay, they're only $50 used. I'm snapping them up every chance I get.
Summary: There are other reviews that go into detail. Bottom line is- this camera is cheap ( construction) , very slow and the pic quality is unremarkable. I am returning it. I bought a Samsung with a touch screen - much, much better.
Summary: I gave away my Sony DSC-W350 to a relative because she loved my camera (I had it for less than a month) and always wanted to replace it with the identical or similar model. I saw the DSC-W570 and thought it would be a slight upgrade in zoom and everything else would remain the same since the specs are practically identical. I ended up getting a great deal on it ($149.99) which was less than what I bought the W350 for. After less than a week with it, I'm not impressed.
