"miserable tiny controller wheel at back."2.5 starson by NeilFiertel
Pros: solid build decent image quality and movable LCD and RAW as well as a sort of viewfinder, crude but sufficient in bright light conditionis
Cons: noisy above ISO 200 ..small sensor issues of course. The control wheel at back with its buttons is too easy to set manual focus and so forth
Summary: The small sensor does as well as one can do with that but the camera is not a small camera so there are larger sensor cameras out there that puts this old design in the shade. The Sony being the one that I most favour and if it had a better direct menu system I would have gotten that. Instead I will buy neither and wait for a new Sony or for Canon to modernize the compact designs that need a serious updating. I will not be surprised that they will suddently do just that.
