Excerpt: I received this camera as a gift in late 2011. It takes impressive photos, I'll give it that. However, it doesn't have the best image stabilizer, and the movies are only 720p, good but not great. For kids, this would be a great choice, but adults... save your money.
Summary: I've had the camera close to a year now and I'm not overly impressed. The biggest thing that it's missing is a good zoom distance. I feel like even at the closest zoom, I'm seeing what I can see with my eyes. It's great value for your money. The self timer and the panorama functions work as expected.
Summary: Camara is nice. Lots of options on it. It is a small camara, so be aware of that. Lcd screen is small as well. I had a different sony cyber shot before with less mega pixels and it worked a lot better. Its good camara for the price! Diffentley a good starter camara for a teen.
Summary: I bought this camera on Black Friday at a big box store. It was only $89. I am glad I didn't invest more than that into it. As some people have written about the poor construction of this camera, I would agree to one of the complaints...the shutter button is too small and odd shaped, which makes it hard to find by touch.
Summary: Decent Point and shoot picture quality (I realize this isn't supposed to be out of this world quality). My biggest disappointment is the battery life. Out last point and shoot (Canon Power Shot) seemed to last through 3-4 events without dying out. The Sony seems to be more comparable to a smartphone battery life.
Summary: We purchased this for our teen as our other teen has a very similar Sony model, but with slightly higher pixel MBs. The camera was not dropped or damaged, but after three weeks, started showing a thin, white line across the LCD display screen. We searched for online issues and chatted with a repair specialist with Sony. After doing what we were instructed, two white lines appeared. So, we were then instructed to send the camera off to the manufacturer for repair.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. It was an upgrade for my Panasonic Lumix FS10, which had been a nice camera. On paper, the W570 looked good, lots of nice features etc. It was also smaller than the FS10 it was replacing, so all good. I used the FS10 under all circumstances as I take a photo a day for a Project365 I am doing, so the W570 underwent the same requirements. Unfortunately, it fell short time and time again.
