"Great Camera for the Money"4.0 starson by Ravenwoman
Pros: Picture quality, excellent, uses either AA rechargeable or alkaline batteries
Cons: No viewfinder
Summary: I was in the market for a new digital camera because I had not upgraded in quite some time. I studied the features of all the cameras in the $130 range and came to the conclusion that Sony offers the best mix of features for the money. I also found the Sony website to be helpful in offering free online photography courses to help the user maximize the cameras capabilities while educating me on how to take the best possible pictures. So far I have used this camera to take both still and action pictures. Both have come out well. The only drawback with this camera is that it lacks a viewfinder. Now, this is not very important if the majority of your pictures are taken indoors. However, out in the direct sunlight, it is very difficult to know if you are centering your subject in the LCD. After a while, you may get proficient at guessing, but I would just prefer a viewfinder instead or trial and error. Other than the lack of a viewfinder, I really find no fault with this camera.
