Pros Nice pics, nice Zoom, very very simple operation
Cons unavailability of digital stabilization & zoom function in movie mode
Summary I have purchased this camera a week before. Results are nice up to ISO 400, beyond that pics are not usable. Movies captured are nice and looks good on TV viewing. Only drawback back is size of movie files are big due to format constraint and digital stablization is missing.
Its good to purchase with such low price tag.
Pros The size and weight.
Cons The settings dial slips into a different setting when you slip it in and out of your pocket. Outside of its compact size, my old canon powersot s60 took better pics.
Pros Easy to use, many functions, quality images
Cons relatively small screen
Summary Having borrowed a similar camera from my nephew, I decided to purchase my own, but the rate at which these things go through batteries (especially when filming video) made it essential that I got a model with a rechargeable battery. With a 2Gb memory card, this little baby is the knees of the bees.
It is solid feeling, not plasticy, has a multitude of functions, including a very good macro function.
I take it everywhere now, & I would strongly recommend it to anyone.
Pros compact, gr8 picture quality, easy to use..
Cons portrait shots in low light can be hard due to the person squinting or blinking.. it flashes 4 times, then a 5th when it takes the picture.. seems to be a trend Sony have..
Summary Fantastic for simple happy snaps.. but also has many features for the more advanced users.
Very compact, but still feels like a camera, not a cheap plastic toy that feels like you can break with your little finger.
Battery life is beyond superb.. seems to last forever..
when buying a memory stick, be very careful of fakes.. they are everywhere.. at least 80% online are fake. as always, do your research when buying cameras and accessories.
Pros Price, Photo quality, Video quality, Easy to use, Battery life.
Cons Clips are too big, Can't record without sound.
Summary If you are just an week-end shooter like me, this camera is very good for you. Photos look very nice and also video quality is good.
