Pros I like this Camera. it is worth Purchasing.
1. Excellent photo quality
2. HD vedio recording is also very good
3. Fast, AI, Easy to use
4. Long battery Life.
after all a very good deal camera.
Cons Panorama is in VGA mode
Pros Panoramic shooting feature, HD video, sleek design, nice finish, simple to control, ultra lightweight
Cons Quality in low light leaves much to be desired, flash can greatly impact skin tone, feels fragile
Pros Compact size, generally accurate auto focus, well built, reasonable price.
Cons Lack of sharpness on one side-right side at wide angle. Otherwise not much to complain about-the price is reasonable though no manual operation.
Summary I bought this camera as a travel camera. My Canon G10 was really too bulky for a pocket or pants pocket. The size and price of the Sony DSC-W350 are just about right. My major complaint against this camera is that at least 1/3 of the frame in this case the right side when the wide angle setting is selected is fuzzy. I returned the first camera I bought since the left side was fuzzy-now I have a camera with a 1/3 fuzzy right side-take your pick. This is too bad since many people will want to take advantage of the ultra wide angle lens this camera offers-especially for vacation architecture photography as well as landscapes. Some wide angle shots are better than others for some strange reason. If you use the middle of the zoom range-sharpness is pretty good. On all other accounts the camera has pretty good performance though do not expect miracles. There is no manual control. Noise is evident even at ISO 80. Flash is good out to 10 feet. Autofocus performance is pretty good though not accurate 100 percent of the time. So long as you understand that this camera is a budget compact you will not be disappointed. If I were willing to spend some more money the new Canon S95 might be the best bet as it is pocketable and offers good performance though it costs twice as much. I tried the HD Video but found it did play well on my computer.
Pros Attractive camera, great size well designed.
Cons "Flat" looking photos, lacked the depth/ richness of with my old Canon PowerShot SD800. Camera was supposed to be able to use a standard SD card every other time or so the camera was turned on it came back with a message "memory not found."
Summary Kept the camera for about 2 weeks and returned it. Used old PowerShot SD800.
Pros Video recording very good.
Cons Slow shutter, terrible battery, 2 hrs to charge, cheap easy breakable latch to battery, .
Have not shoot 10 pictures in a row and gotten ten good pictures.
Summary DO NOT buy this camera. It is the worst camera I have ever owned.
In the Easy Mode (auto), there are some great features. The problem
is that you have to push the shutter half way down to focus the picture.
This takes too much time and you never great the picture you want. It does
have another mode where it just snaps the picture without the shutter delay
but then you do not have any of the options available in the Easy Mode.
The battery life is terrible and it takes forever to charge. Buying a spare
battery is very expensive. The latch to the memory and battery compartment
is too small and dainty. Since you always have to open it up to get the battery out
you wonder how long before it breaks.
A good feature, the HD video is great and easy to use.
