Summary: Loved this camera, especially the soft skin feature. Then, without warning, the screen had a big grey square right in the middle. Took a picture, turned the camera off, and 5 minutes later went to take another picture, and the screen became defective... could only partially view the photos taken due to the grey square. I didnt drop it or agitate it in any way to cause the issue.
Summary: Operations: I have had this camera for year now and it is the best for me for the money, better quality and speed than my previous 'pocket' cameras. That is except for the slanting inward at the tops of my pictures. But all of my Sony's have done this. Mostly I use it with the "Easy Mode" which makes everything automatic. The menu is a mess for me since I haven't learned it. I am sure the advanced settings would be nice but I don't have time nor the need for this.
Summary: This camera is my 4th point and shoot over the past few years and my second Sony. Firstly, the camera design and feel is all good with fairly easy controls and very lightweight yet solid. Compared to other cameras this took pics much faster (less delay) with highest resolution settings. It seems to constantly be auto adjusting the focus when On, which may be helping it respond faster which was great for catching moments. Resolution at zoom was pretty good as well.
Summary: Love this point and shoot- small enough to fit in my pocket and my husband is willing to carry it in his when I don't have one. Great lens- Carl Zeiss. I have small children and my camera phone just isn't sharp enough for pictures with fast-moving subjects. This camera satisfies my needs.
Summary: This camera has focus problems, and it has issues reading the memory card more often than it should. My friend has the same camera and she's also had the problem where it will not read your memory card & claims you have no pictures (giving you a heart attack if you've been on vacation for weeks) until you plug it in your computer and realize your pics are all there.
