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.
Not a good value for the price (cheap cheap cheap build quality)

Summary: I picked up a DSC-W570 recently at "a major discount warehouse chain" (actually, Amazon is cheaper on the price, though). I paid $179.00 for the bundle. The camera was blister packed with the camera, case, memory card, and basic accessories that included a USB cable, software, wrist strap, and battery/charger. When you look at this camera even up close, it almost appears to have a metal body, which would have been great.
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.
