Summary: I really like the camera, don't know about the battery life yet, as I just received it. Didn't have any problems figuring it out, and the first one that I have owned. It takes great pictures and was so simple to transfer to my computer. Very happy with it.
Summary: Like anything else "Sony", it works as advertised. My dad, bless his heart, he's 81, has difficulty getting the batteries in a flash light. I showed him how to use this, how to download the pics, how to view them and he's happier than a pig in slop.
Excerpt: The Camera is great overall. It's small size makes it easy to keep on you. The 8x zoom with the 20MP makes it great for getting detailed shots of things far away. Downside was that at times the Smart mode would not let me take a picture since it was trying to figure out what settings to use making me miss a good photo.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Short Battery Life, Too Smart
