Bad points:
when having problems with my camera relating to its ability to hold a charge over the period of two weeks, the second time I sent it off to Sony for the same fault I was charged £30 before I could get it back. The engineers could not in their words replicate the fault in the workshop.Why would I complain if there was nothing wrong? Effectively leaving myself without a camera over the Christmas and New Year period. I must honestly say I am very dissapointed with my purchase and will not be buying any further Sony products,

Good points:
Ease of Use, Features, Quality of Image
Bad points:
Will take quite some time to learn how to use all the functions. Not necessarily a bad point, just means I need to dedicate a bit of time to understand it all.

Ben, Manchester Keen amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
easy to use, easy mode installed on it already, battery life is amazing lasted for about 450 photos (without flash) at a day out at the park.
Bad points:
buttons are very clicky could be easier to press and a bit better on the 'smart mode' as it does not always choose the correct type of photo you want.

Replaced a broken Sony DSC T1 with this DSC W550, wish I hadn't. Not impressed at all.Should have spent quarter of the money & bought a camera that takes pictures.
