Mike, Herefordshire, UK Experienced amateur

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Small, fits in pocket, good image, standard controls similar to many other compact cameras (not just Sony). Using 4GB Memory stick can shoot over 1500 images of reasonable quality.
Bad points:
Memory stick does not fit in many other devices e.g. electronic picture frames, modern lap top computers or modern printers. Needs to be fitted in camera for downloading to any other device.
Dissapointing life i.e. 2-3 years before lense in & out movement starting playing up. Switch on camera and lense projects out 4 times then screen shows ' Turn the power off and on again' this has no affect but just repeats the same sequence. When switched off lense retracts once fully then projects half the normal distance then shuts. Can still view whats on memory stick but unable to take anymore pictures. Sony want £117.00 just to look at it! My wife claims that she paid £200.00+ for it but shops say a similar replacement will cost £80-100. I will not buy another Sony product. My 10 year old Fuji Fine Pix F401 Compact is still working like new. Unfortunately its a bit slow and lacking capacity compared with modern cameras. Next buy will be another Fuji or a Panasonic.

john, wallasey wirral Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A very good camera,I found it easy to use and good for filling in background flash.
The menu will take a bit to get used to,this is because there are sub menus as well.
So far the pics taken,this includes multi shot and video has done the job asked.
The battery lasts for many shots,no problem there even when left for days without use.
Yes the on off button hard to press for some,the reason for this is because there is less chance of it turning on in pocket or bag.
Bad points:
The price of the bits and bobs for the camera expensive though.
Same goes for the memory card,best go for after market memory card I did.

Manufacturer's Description

Smart shooting that’s so easy to use

Compact, stylish and easy to use. Enjoy very high quality images plus serious features like Smile Shutter, Wide angle lens and Intelligent Scene Recognition for fuss-free results.

Dont worry about the right settings

It can be hard judging the best camera settings to use in tricky situations like twilight portraits and sun-drenched backlit beach scenes. Intelligent Scene Recognition automatically adjusts exposure and other settings, helping you achieve better-looking results with less effort.

Pack more into every scene

Dramatic landscapes, architectural shots, interiors and even family scenes can produce disappointing results when a scene gets cut off at the edges. A wide angle lens lets you pack more into the picture without having to stand further back from the subject.
Beautiful portraits made simple

Now its easy to capture beautiful, smiling portraits of friends and family. Enhanced Face Detection automatically adjusts camera settings for clear, crisp results with natural skin tones. Smile Shutter fires the shutter automatically when your subject smiles to capture those happy moments.

Enjoy the show

Here’s a great way to add an extra dimension to enjoying your precious pictures and clips. View colourful, dynamic ‘slideshows’ on the camera screen, with exciting transitions and a choice of music tracks. Or connect to your HD television for a view of the big picture.

Big, beautiful pictures on your HD TV

Why not show off your pictures in more style? Connect your camera to any HD Ready television and enjoy a big, beautiful view of your pictures that everyone can enjoy. If your BRAVIA TV supports PhotoTV HD, youll enjoy even incredibly lifelike HD images, packed with detail and vibrant colours.
