Would like one that took less time to focus

  • Summary: Nice camera, takes good photos but it takes time to focus properly for better photos. I just want a camera that is easy to use.

It's ok but glitchy

A "Reader", Amazon
22 November 2013
  • 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.

I am neutral due to out-of-box failure

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: The battery must be defective because after charging it twice according to directions, the camera lasted for 1-3 shots taken in succession then just turned off. No real help from original seller, Amazon won't replace, only return this type of item. Since I purchased it using "points", I assumed a nightmare to execute an exchange so had to return it to Sony for warranty repair/replacement. Very inconvenient and annoying!!

If possible, go for the Sony WX150 instead

lindguini, Amazon

  • Summary: PROS: Small size, low light capability, special features CONS: Lens wobble during video zooming, image noise above ISO 200 I've been searching for a point-and-shoot camera that can rival my six year-old Fuju F30. The F30 set the standard for low noise, low-light photo quality in small-sensor cameras and its performance has been difficult to beat --and I've tried, and purchased, several cameras since the Fuji.

eh...not bad but not thrilled

M. Rotenberg "FunMark21", Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: I got this before i went on a baseball road trip with my buddies which we do every year and it had been a solid 8 years since I bought my last digital camera so it was time. It's a good camera. Pictures come out super crisp, and its small so I can throw it in my pocket without much worry. My big problem is night photos come out pretty bad due to the flash being way to powerful.

Playback button powers camera ON, wastes battery in your pocket

Patso, Amazon
29 October 2012
  • Summary: I got this camera for the size, it's perfect to take travelling as it fits in my pocket. However, the camera turns ON when you hit the playback button, which is on the back in the lower right corner, and SUPER ACCESSIBLE. When you hit it twice, it puts the camera into shooting mode and actually makes the lens pop out. This is super annoying when it's in your pocket or purse and your camera keeps turning on all on its own.

Great little camera

jansci, Amazon
5 July 2012
  • Summary: After lugging around a DSLR for years, was finally persuaded that I needed a compact camera to capture unplanned moments with our toddler. This camera is so small that I sometimes forget that its in my pocket. Images are ok for use on Facebook or Picasa but are really washed out under florescent or indoor lighting.

Great when working

Curtis Wade Tanner, Amazon
12 June 2012
  • Summary: The Good: The camera is very small and portable, easily fitting into a pocket or a small purse. Lots of great features and it is very easy to use. The photo quality was extremely good compared to my past cameras. The Bad: The camera worked flawlessly until the lens would no longer retract into the camera in less than a month's worth of use. Sent it off to be repaired (had to pay for shipping to service center). Was very excited for this camera until it stopped working.
