Great in sony & partly sony conditions. Not to good in low light or dark. Great manual setting as well as auto.

Compared to other camera in it's class, it takes excellent pictures. The macro setting works very well underwater. It's pretty much useless for any shots that require a zoom though. It also has a very slow start up time.

I enjoy the small and convient size but there is a large delay from clicking the button to the actual click of the picture.

This is an excellent camera. It has got all the manual features of a SLR camera and it helps me to learn the nuances of photography.

A fairly decent compact digital camera that is very comfortable and easy to use. Unfortunately these seem to be disposable cameras as I have gone through three of them now!

I like the ease of use, but I would like a camera with higher megapixels.

Good point & shoot digital. LCD screen is difficult to see in bright light conditions. Seems to have a reputation for the LCD screen 'dying' (wavy purple bars at random times/black screen/etc) shortly after warranty expires.
