Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good features, tiltable screen very useful. feels good and comfortable when handling. Read lots of reviews of cameras in the price bracket and felt the Sony offered good value for money. Bought the camera about a year ago now and have been extremely pleased with my purchase. Have since bought my son the updated model,ie the 330, from the same retailer, he loves the the camera and insists upon showing me all his results!!
Bad points:
So few to speak of, maybe some of the buttons are a little bit fiddly but this does not detract from the overall operation. As mentioned above the newer 330 is now the one to look for as mine is no longer available, however similar comments still apply to this camera.

Annette, Leatherhead Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
What can I say, I was bought this as a wedding present by ,my beloved, two years ago. I have travelled to India, Egypt, Thailand & Greece with it, and have been very impressed by the quality of the photos I have taken with this camera. It travels very well. It is easy to learn the menu, and set up, if you should so wish, during picture taking. Exceedingly fast focus, crisp and quick live view. Nice ergonomic feel to the whole camera and a reassuring weight, not too light and plasticky like some I could mention. Altogether a super allround camera, for those who like to point and shoot and then some............
Bad points:
No grid screen like others on the viewfinder or live view. Being really picky, but to encourage use of live view for more people a shade could come as part of the kit for the screen
