"Maybe we have been spoilt by using other makes of compact camera, but this one just doesn't function as swiftly as hoped. It takes so long to record a shot that even on continuous shooting, opportunities are missed.
Useful to keep in a bag due to its size but doubt whether it will be used very much. Have to now save up for a better one!"
No, I do not recommend this product.

"The camera performs well, already being an owner of a Sony Cyber-shot camera I had high expectations for it. I found the transition time from taking the photo to it being displayed a little slow. Otherwise I enjoyed the newer features on the camera - panoramic shot for example."
Yes, I recommend this product.

Must have been faulty

"I had bought this camera as it appeared a newer version of the sony cybershot I already had (which has been fantastic for 3 years+). However, I was unable to get a non-blurry photo out of it as, if anyone so much as moved when being snapped, it came out blurry. Definately no good for snapping my toddler. I returned this camera and paid on top to get another higher priced sony cybershot (which I am very happy with). Looking at other reviews for this camera, I may have been unlucky to get a faulty one - rather than the quality of camera being an issue??"
No, I do not recommend this product.
