"Looks can be decieving"3.0 starson by ju8687
Pros: Easy to use, quick, and stylish.
Cons: Poor image quality-- on the lcd, and on the computer
Summary: I've been waiting for this camera for a while, and bought it the second Best Buy got it one their shelves.
Camera looks great, and the large touch screen is convenient and easy to use--it's very responsive and appropriate for the feature sets.
Biggest flaw is image quality. Images on the computer look as grainy as they do on the LCD screen. I've played around with some settings (ISO, picture type, resolution) and am quite unhappy. I took a lot of great pictures and am disappointed that they are not even good quality for 5x7 prints; most are grainy and blurry. I think that the flash isn't powerful enough, or the image stabilization just doesn't live up to its name.
I probably won't return the camera, but I don't feel that it's worth $400. There are cameras under $300 that are better, just not as sexy. Looks can be deceiving with this Sony, it all depends whether you want to look good holding the camera or whether you want to take good looking pictures.
