Compact Digital Camera
Compact but near equal performance to DSLR camera
The capabilities and the performance of this camera are just impressive. I have a website for which I use this camera to take my product photos, and I keep getting comments about how great the product photography looks, including from photographers! What they don't know is that this is the camera I use, and I am just your average camera user! You can see my photos at VALOOSA.com. So here are some of the highlights of what I love about this compact camera: awesome anti-shake function, impressive manual zoom at 8x, auto setting mode according to the type of shoot and environment, nice panorama shoot, 18.1 M Pixels for crisp photos, background blur function, has lots of built-in artificial intelligence to automatically help the un-professional user like me, non-stop video with zoom, and slips right into the little pocket of my shirt! What I don't like about it: it feels a little bit flimsy (although it dropped hard twice and is still going), battery life could be longer, and I don't like the delete toggle button function. Well, I'm about to order another one as a gift for my brother. Great job on this one Sony!

DSC-WX150 Nice camera but.....
We recently purchased our WX150 and found it to be an easy point and shoot camera. The pictures and videos are very sharp. The auto features do a nice job in selecting the proper setting based on conditions for example low lighting. Two cons are first the problem with uploading videos to a MAC and Facebook. While on vacation I tried to download the vidoes on my daughter's Mac for her but the MAc did not recognize them. In my investigation it appears additional software or conversion is required. Secondly the battery in this camera does not appear to have the life that my old Cyber shot had resulting in some lost photo opertunities. I am addresssing this problem by purchasing a second battery and AC charger. Those were the only problems preventing me from rating the camera as a five star.

Nice features for a grandma!
This is a very nice camera. Love it's small size & light weight. It has an easy intuitive setting that gives you great focus & lighting for your pictures. The low light was the most important feature for me as we live in Alaska & it's dark most of the year.
So far, there's only 1 problem that I really hate about the camera. It's all black & so are the buttons which make it hard to find the buttons when you need them. I would also like to turn off the location details for the camera files & also have the option of saving in RAW format.

Must have camera for family and vacation shots
Absolutely love this camera. My wife and I are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary at Disney World. This is my 5th digital camera and by far my favorite. The quick response (shutter speed), high quality photo's (18.2 MP#, wide angle lens, great battery life and many other features which I have yet to use, make this camera a must have for family and vacations. The two photo's I posted are in complete darkness #no flash pictures were allowed). I can't believe how great the photo's turned out...crystal clear
