the camera

gretchang, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • 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. so I do not use it as much as i wanted.

good for carrying around to capture spontaneous moments

Oregon skier, Amazon

  • 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. This Sony doesn't take low light, action or macro pictures very well but it's great for normal lighting, full (not zoom) frame pictures.

Pictures are kind of blurry by default...

Gregory Desrouleaux, Amazon
16 April 2013
  • Summary: Not sure why even under the best conditions, pictures come out just "okay". Then again, its not the most expensive camera, so I guess I can't expect much. Panarama works great, though.

OK camera if your expectations aren't too high

Mostly Harmless, Amazon
9 April 2013
  • 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. I purchased the 610, as options were very limited in that location; also, as I had been forewarned, electronics prices in that location were high - higher than the MSRP in the U.S.

Small and Light weight

4strength, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • 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.

Tiny

Kate, Amazon

  • 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.

Where is the flipping Memory Card???

Trixyinaz, Amazon
25 December 2012
  • 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!

Capable little camera

Samuel McConnell, Amazon
8 June 2012
  • 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 expect too much from it. The camera comes with a battery, a charger, a USB cable, and a wrist strap.

Sony-DSCW610-Digital-Still-Camera

Happychappy, Amazon
28 August 2012
  • Summary: Compact but feels weighty and has survived multiple drops onto stone floor and still produces fantastic pictures of the family, suddenly my children are all photogenic which has more to do with the quality of the camera than the subjects. I point and it does the rest, producing good results even in bright light. Easy to edit on the camera, moving pictures very clear.
