Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"The images are not very good quality and in fact my smartphone takes same or better quality shots."
_
"I still can't figure out what exactly is happening but it'll automatically end on its own and if you don't turn the camera all the way through its predefined limit within the countdown then it saves with a big gray space; see my uploaded photo, this is a big problem that's really annoying."
_
"Photos - Photo quality is generally good if not amazing."
_
"As for video, the video is one of the best features of this device, for some reason the developers created the video to be blur free while moving, but missed the mark with still images."
_
"It's nice because you can just flip the front down, take a pic, and push it back up to put the camera back to sleep."
_
"Photo quality is excellent"
_
"Chic look, beautiful design and awesome pics!"
_
"It takes really great pics and you can take fun pics as well."

Photo

Photo:
"Sony Cameras suffer from CMOS problems with colored vertical lines in many photos."
_
"It uses a Carl Zeis lens which is great but very little, so dont expect amazing photos."
_
"Shutter time is quick, but write time can be fairly slow; if you're recording a video or taking photos in a mode that requires the camera to manipulate (e. g. watercolor mode), you'll need to wait a few seconds while it processes the photo."
_
"The photos look great, have a nice quality and I love the full size touch screen."
_
"Getting the kids together to wear the glasses and view photos was a fun activity."
_
"It also is very easy to use and takes pretty great photos."
_
"Because of the fast shutter speed, you should be able to take photos of moving objects pretty easily."
_
"While watercolor is neat and all, I don't see that I'm going to be sending people watercolor photos; it seems more like a waste of what could have been a good shot (see my uploaded photo)."

Quality

Quality:
"I have been a Sony fan for over 25 years however my last two purchases have been great products with quality problems."
_
"The images are not very good quality and in fact my smartphone takes same or better quality shots."
_
"Photos - Photo quality is generally good if not amazing."
_
"The .MP4 files can be opened in Quicktime without having to use the software or manipulate anything, but the quality is vastly degraded."
_
"Finally I decided, a camera with great picture quality was no use if I didn't enjoy actually taking pictures with it."
_
"Nonetheless, if you're looking for a great point and shoot for video, this is by far the best and I didn't expect the great quality that it had within such a small camera."
_
"The photos look great, have a nice quality and I love the full size touch screen."
_
"Photo quality is excellent"
_
"I have been a Sony fan for over 25 years however my last two purchases have been great products with quality problems."

"Picture quality is excellent."

Screen

Screen:
"Good pocket camera, very feminine and small, touch screen sometimes gets annoying as you can change settings easily without realizing...overall i am happy it performs as i expected for the price of it"
_
"the only issue i had was of my own fault, i fell and the screen did crack."
_
"The only complaint is the super sensitive touch screen."
_
"Since the entire back of the camera is the LCD touch screen, I can see where it could easily be broken or damaged."
_
"I think the problem probably is caused by the smaller screen."
_
"The photos look great, have a nice quality and I love the full size touch screen."
_
"Well, those features lasted but a few days because the LCD screen completely died."
_
"Would also be nice if I could find screen protectors for the beautiful OLED screen!"
_
"Since the entire back of the camera is the LCD touch screen, I can see where it could easily be broken or damaged."

Setting

Setting:
"Good pocket camera, very feminine and small, touch screen sometimes gets annoying as you can change settings easily without realizing...overall i am happy it performs as i expected for the price of it"
_
"Another issue I had with the camera is that its suggested auto settings doesn't have a force flash and that the only way to get a force flash is to put it to custom program settings, which dont look as good as the suggested."
_
"While this camera does have a lot of pre-programmed settings, you'll be flipping through them a lot in order to find the right one for the mood, the suggested settings are good, but they switch between scenes too much and too often and often times to the wrong settings(night scene, day scene, twilight, candle light, etc.)."
_
"unless you're in a nicely lit room or in the sunlight, the suggested settings aren't all that great for auto choosing the right one."
_
"As this comes with touchscreen you can easily use it and change settings etc."
_
"Good pocket camera, very feminine and small, touch screen sometimes gets annoying as you can change settings easily without realizing...overall i am happy it performs as i expected for the price of it"
_
"I wanted something that is not outdated and since I'm looking for a point and shoot, I'm expecting this to be fast, in short a true point and shoot camera and so far so good, It will all depend on how use the settings though."
_
"The camera offers a multitude of settings and has a great zoom feature."
_
"With touch screen settings, it has a lot of functions to use and enjoy."

Zoom

Zoom:
"The zoom on this is good enough when not used liked that."
_
"The negatives could make this a deal breaker for you: Except for zoom, shutter and power, there are no external buttons."
_
"another thing to note is that while I would love to use one hand to use th entire camera and its features, that is very hard to do, you can get a quick point and shoot, but the zoom button on top is very small and you will definitely need two hands in order to zoom in and out (one for stability)..In the box - Camera, Charger, USB Cable charger cable, Wrist Strap, Paint Pen (will never use it), Tripod adapter."
_
"I can zoom in and so and get great results."
_
"I think that that changes when you are mostly taking pics on a serious note like on a special occasion or with family or landscape (mentioned this because we have an older camera that has 12mp but with 10x zoom and boy... How nice is that feature for taking pics on a Disney Vacation because of parades and crowds so you have to really use that zoom in)."
_
"The camera offers a multitude of settings and has a great zoom feature."
_
"Was able to zoom in and still freeze the action needed."
_
"Unexpected pleasant surprises:- 5x optical zoom does not project the lens outside the camera casing."
