"Very Good For Specified Use"4.5 starson by JordanG247
Pros: Compact, Fast, Decent Quality Photos, Good Battery Life
Cons: Needs Sony Memory Card, 3x Zoom,
Summary: I think that this camera would please the average consumer, and most likely others as well. The Camera has an extremely good battery life, and is very fast. Perfect for taking quick snapshots. Face detection and image stabilization make your pictures turn out better; and features work well. There are many automatic and manual settings to satisfy most people.
Definitely this camera is not for people looking to buy a high end camera. The limited zoom and lack of pro features (such as an electronic viewfinder, more manual settings and a further reaching flash) would prevent taking truly professional photos in some cases.
For myself, I have found this camera to be the best one I have ever owned. I have taken it on vacation a few times this summer and have been very thrilled with how I can switch to different modes quickly to take the best possible photos. The battery life is also amazing. The specs say about 340 shots, but I got around 500, and was able to review my pictures fully three times before the battery died; it lasted me a whole week of vacation!
Definitely a camera I would suggest to those looking for a good quality, low-cost and compact camera.
