Sleek, good looks. Picture quality ok
Bad points:
Camera hangs all of a sudden. Memory corruption occurs even though we use Sony Memory stick. it a takes a lot of time to take a snap after u have taken a one. Generally not worthy of the brand Sony. Had high expectations but was badly let down :( ...

Bad points:
The camera is quite heavy and very chunky, the image quality is quite blurry and takes a few seconds for it to focus properly-something you would not expec from a high resolution.
