"For $149.99 on clearance, it was too good to pass up."4.5 starson by Ashram13
Pros: 1080/60i in MP4 and AVC-HD, good low light sensitivity, fast response with class 4 SD card, options for picture and video taking, quality Carl Zeiss lens, high-res LCD, attractive and slim design, lightweight, ability to use Memory Stick or SD media.
Cons: Pictures taken can appear somewhat softer. Small controls can be a problem for some.
Summary: I purchased my DSC-WX9, brand new and sealed in the box, on clearance from Target for about $150.
Aside from the display model, this was the last one they had.
The pictures did seem a little soft, but the quality of images were still good looking and, perhaps, the slight softness did give the pictures a tad of an organic feel. However, I still would have preferred a sharper image, but what the hey; what counts is that it takes good pictures and you have a lot of options to take the shots you want.
For the price, the features and the overall quality, this was a deal.
However, as this model may be on clearance now, supplies may not last so, if you're still in the market for a sensibly priced high quality camera, you can't go wrong with this one.
