Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Okay - takes nice pictures, but my rating reflects that the little clip that holds the battery in place partially broke after just a few uses."
_
"Negatives are that there is a delay in the picture taking after you push the button, the lock on the battery sd card door is flimsy and can easily get accidentally opened just sliding around in your purse or pocket and I have not yet figured out how to delete the entire folder of pictures videos from the camera, so far I can only figure out how to delete them one at a time on the camera - I have to use the computer to delete them all at once."
_
"Battery life was not great, even with flash off."
_
"Saw some prior complaints on the battery life, but if you want a small camera, then this is a trade off."
_
"I find it a handy way to separate when showing off the pictures, especially if they're similar.2 complaints:1, its rechargeable battery does die quickly."
_
"I love that the on off button is very tiny and flush with the camera - that way it won't accidentally turn on when you throw it in your bag and then when you want to take a picture -- you discover the battery is dead (another problem with my other camera).So yes, I love it."
_
"Very good image quality and durable battery"
_
"Battery is also good."
_
"Negatives are that there is a delay in the picture taking after you push the button, the lock on the battery sd card door is flimsy and can easily get accidentally opened just sliding around in your purse or pocket and I have not yet figured out how to delete the entire folder of pictures videos from the camera, so far I can only figure out how to delete them one at a time on the camera - I have to use the computer to delete them all at once."
_
"Point and shoot, no lag like some cameras and the battery lasts a pretty long time :-)"
_
"Nothing like the high quality ones or anything, but good for what it isPros: great size, lightweight, cool colors, easy to figure out, easy to charge battery and get pics off card, battery lasts fine."

_
"Nothing like the high quality ones or anything, but good for what it isPros: great size, lightweight, cool colors, easy to figure out, easy to charge battery and get pics off card, battery lasts fine."

Flash

Flash:
"Battery life was not great, even with flash off."
_
"I guess the flash is just too weak, because I was in a concert and I just couldnt take any picture of the show because it was completely dark and since it doesnt have any other option than automatic... You can imagine I just lost my time trying to take a picture there."
_
"Just beware though- it seems from searching online, this model does have problems with the built in flash dying."
_
"Very unhappy with the limited flash settings and un-crisp, indoor pictures."
_
"Also - there's a great feature where in lowlight, it will take 2 pictures (if you choose this option) - one with a flash and one without and you can choose which is the best - LOVE IT."
_
"You never get any red-eye and photo editing on the camera is very usefulSweep panorama is usefulCons:You can't charge it using your USBNight photos aren't very good and the flash often spoils picturesNot good at capturing people in motionPictures take a bit long to display after they're capturedMemory card is sold separatelyYou look really ugly in night photos and light streaks come across the picture"
_
"Indoors, I tried flash off, well lit room still life."
_
"If you turn off the flash and then turn the camera off and then back on, the flash doesn't come back on, which is very nice!"
_
"and the pictures are CLEAR and even in low light without the flash, they come out great."
_
"I think it takes pretty good night pictures with the flash, it has a short processing time and it's easy to use."
_
"Subjects across the room (or the room itself) turn out pretty good colors with flash on."

"but the quality of the images is not too good without a lot of light, for the price it's good, not great."
_
"so i bought this item as a present to my mom and she's VERY careful with things btw, one day she said that the camera just won't work, i looked and it wouldnt take pics anymore or even open... very dissapointed and will be calling a warranty for a full refund"
_
"Yes, being able to remove red eyes and crop the pic directly from the camera is awesome but they need to fix the lag time for taking the picture...I had all of my nieces and nephews posing for a pic (not easy with kids), the light came on and 6 seconds later, the camera actually took the picture - not cool when you're used to digital SLR shutter speeds...overall, not a bad camera and quite affordable...oh, almost forgot to metion that I like the panoramic setting, very cool"
_
"Hard to use, after shooting the pic, it takes few seconds to see the pic on the screen."
_
"against The HD videos are not a very good image quality ...Your sharing settings"
_
"One dissapointment for me, would have to be the quality of the panorama image quality."
_
"Very good image quality and durable battery"
_
"My wife is 8 months pregnant and we wanted to take some good quality full-term pics."
_
"Results:Amazing image quality!"
_
"Great camera, but my phone takes better pics"
_
"I find myself using my old sony S52 (which actually produces superior low light and macro pics, believe it or not).The video was fine."

"Here is what I liked about the DSC-W570 (Pros from my perspective)* Very light (some have complained that this is attributable to cheap plastic construction) - but I love the nearly non-existent weight of this camera* Very thin (some have complained that this makes it look toy-like) - but this means this can fit in your pocket with only a little bulge."

"It has great features for its price, Pictures quality is really good in many different light conditions, Optical zoom is very good and digital zoom does quite well."

Price:
"I need a camera get tried of buying the walgreens camera to take pictures with i love sony so i bought this one (pink) it was shocking little fit in my hand not over it i had my camera for a long time since 2010 and it still work perfect and fine don't freeze or nothing or no mark hold up good the only downside is that the zoom button don't zoom good enough and far and once you have pictures on there and you mistake click the deleted it aw no it not coming back gone i hate that but overall it nice worth the money i for sure buy a other one :) my honest review"

"1st digital camara, great for the price"
_
"My brother is a professional photographer and he tells me it was a good buy for the money."
_
"It's great value for your money."
_
"Generally I go for Canons just as a preference, but looking at the specs for all the basic Canon and even Nikon cameras on display, for the price this was the best and so far I've been beyond pleased with it (even more so because I was spending store credit).I don't know if I would have bought it for 165 like the current price on Amazon, but for the 100 I paid it is a great buy for something you want to take nice pictures with."
_
"I was pleased with this one not only because it was quite cheap where I got it (about 100 with tax from RC Wiley), but also the simple user-ability as my parents will likely want to use it and it takes nearly no explanation to use."

"I have taken and sold photos using this camera and can get very nice poster size prints."

"It only has a slightly better zoom but the actual material of the camera is not as good as the W350."
