Summary: The camera is okay. the instructions that come with it are the barest minimum. you have to get what you need off the website. I wanted just a point and click camera to take quick shots, this has auto focus that takes about 3 seconds to work by then the photo i wanted is gone. it is very frustrating.
good for carrying around to capture spontaneous moments

Summary: This is a good general camera - I get better shots with my Canon - but it's very lightweight so it's great to keep in my purse. I bought it to take on backpacking trips to save on weight but I will be taking my heavier camera instead.
Summary: This winter, while traveling in South America, I fell, landing on, and "fatally" damaging, my Canon PowerShot SD780 IS. Not wanting to rely upon smartphone pictures for the remainder of the trip, I purchased another digital point and shoot - the Sony Cyber-shot DSCW610.
Summary: I read multiple reviews, did my research and tried to make an informed decision. The pictures are of good quality. Its perfect for a young adult, whom I purchased this for. My only critique is that it seems very "cheap".. the case itself just seems very flimsy.
Summary: It's a little smaller than I expected the camera itself as well as the screen. It's cute and can fit great in your purse. The quality of the pictures are alright they're not as professional looking as other camera's offer but great for the price.
Summary: Be sure to buy a memory card to go with this camera as it does NOT come with one. How stupid is that? Got this for a Christmas gift for my daughter who is dying to take pictures today and it's useless until we can get to the store tomorrow. She is a very bummed out 8 year old on Christmas Day!
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for another Sony digital camera that I lost. Compared to my original camera, this wasn't as great. My shots often come out slightly blurry, especially in flash mode. Pictures taken in the dark always come out a little weird.
Summary: As a rule, I generally buy and use cameras with a little bit more functionality, like the Nikon P7000 or D3100. However, the DSC-W610, the lowest-end of Sony's current crop of digital cameras, certainly fits the bill for a cheap, pocketable camera that will get the job done, as long as you don't...
