Clip holding in battery broke within a few uses
P. Cole, Amazon

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: I bought this product hoping to replace an old 8MP Cybershot I bought 4 or 5 years ago. I returned this camera after only 3 days. Compared with the old cybershot there was very little difference in the picture quality. Additionally, the camera takes much longer to take a picture and is far noiser when focusing. Not only that, they have striped the camera of the almost all the user adjustable settings.
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.
Poor and misleading instructions for other than the most basic 'point and shoot'
Michael Robinson, Amazon
4 July 2011
Summary: Unlike the last reviewer I found this camera near impossible to use other than for the most basic of point and shoot functions. I have spent over eight hours today going over both sets of printed data and the in-camera guide menus with the actual camera menus. There are numerous instances of missing, misleading and incorrect information.
Summary: I've used a Sony DSC-W120 for a few years and LOVE it. I saw the bundle deal at a warehouse store and thought I was getting an awesome upgrade from 7.2Mega pixels to 16+, as well and Image Stabilization and a number of other enticing features. After only an hour of playing with it I'm very disappointed. It has no micro setting for capturing close-ups of insect and plant life. I'll take fault for not investigating that. But any zoom shots seem blurry.
