Packs a punch...

Customer review by SonyKid

The good is the incredibly small pocket size camera with an excellent super zoom and good image stablization. Photo quality is good and on par with the other point and shots (I've had them all, but really like the size of this one!) Has nice array of artistic features. The lens and zoom are exellent throughout, and the Sony technology of the close up zoom over the optical is spectacular. The not so good is the aperture is not fast enough, no RAW, no touch screen. More in-camera editing options would be nice. The one thing I really didn't like about the camera is that in bright sunshine, it is virtually impossible to see the LCD screen. Camera funtions superbly in sunshine and struggles in shadows and dark areas. Really a daylight camera. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. a very noble attempt. it's as good as the Canon and Fuji point and shoots but stands out for its small size and packs a good photo punch.

This is an amazing camera for the size. The 30x optical zoom is fantastic. Add wireless, tons of modes and a pocket size and you've got a winner. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is how long it takes to save each picture. Even when I reduce the picture size, it still takes a long time. And shooting multiple images and saving those images is painful. It's so easy to miss a shot. I've invested in the fastest memory card available but that didn't make a difference. My old Canon which is 3x as heavy and less optical zoom is super fast compared to this camera, But I put up with it because the zoom and other features make it a killer camera. It takes beautiful pictures, the battery lasts a long, long time. Even with the flash. The video works great, the screen must be set to it's brightest to see in bright daylight. There is a viewfinder available as an option, but it's more expensive than the camera. I wish the camera were a little larger, had a view finder built in and saved the pictures MUCH faster. But all that is still minor compared to the awesome pic quality, incredible size and features and huge zoom.

I am an amateur photographer who loves taking pictures of my kids. This camera makes me look like I know more than I do about photography. It's nice and small and easy to carry. The picture quality is amazing and I LOVE the fact that you can transfer the pictures over wifi. HOWEVER....unfortunately this past week (1 week after 1 year limited warranty was up) I took a picture and the pop up flash sparked and made a popping noise and no longer works. I have Googled everything possible to find a replacement pop up flash and can't find one anywhere. I love this camera but it's useless without the flash. VERY unhappy due to this issue. other than this....the camera really was amazing.

I absolutely LOVE this camera. I purchased it last August after the last of a series of Nikon Coolpix camera died of their routine "lens error disease". I live in Florida...the Nikon cameras were rendered useless in the hot temperatures and humidity. This Sony Cyber-shot, however, has not failed in the least - functioning with excellence in all dry weather conditions. So many positive things to say about this camera, the 30X zoom lens being at the top of the list. It allows for crisp, clear shots from great distances. A variety of settings allows great pictures in all sorts of light. Captured colors are vivid and clear. Love the 10-pic bursts!

good quality purchase! I bought this camera for an overseas visit, it traveled well and wasn't too large but still had lots of power, I only had to charge it maybe twice for the week I was away. Took great pictures and even took some excellent night pictures as it picks up on light rather well, although for night it would work much better with a tripod, but I used some of the blurriness to my advantage as it suggested a long exposure photograph. Although I took mostly landscape pictures it produces great details for far shots as well as super zoomed in, it is even capable of taking detailed images of something as small as my fingerprints!
