Summary: I did get panarama shots with it but needed someone else to help me get started with it. The directions as LESS than helpful and you have to get everything just right for the wide angle shots to work. The regular pictures are easy.
Summary: I received my Sony CyberShot really excited! About 3 or more years ago I had purchased the 12.4 megapixel sony cyber shot(poster sized quality pics) and I was expecting this one to have an even better image than that! 16.1 Megapixels!!! I was not impressed. my venue was at night, my old camera had a circular settings wheel that you spun around and clicked to the setting you preferred as if you were on a cameras version of wheel of fortune.
Pros: it's small, panaramic pics
Cons: Does not come with removable memory, too simplified, feels cheap
Summary: It wasn't as quick as I expected it to be and sometimes took blurred pics but it did the job while I was on vacation which is what I bought it for. I didn't want to always take out my IPAD, which took faster pics.
