Lens

Lens:
"However, buyer should beware of the sensitivity of the lens."
_
"One of the reasons that older Sony digital cameras had mediocre image quality was because of their mediocre lenses."
_
"The Zeiss lens that the camera has just takes absolutely beautiful pictures."
_
"Well, we tapped the lens, figuring we had nothing to lose, and it started moving again."
_
"Our Sony DSC-S70 has proven itself time and again, so --- even though we have two excellent Canon digital SLRs and all sorts of lenses --- we keep it with us virtually everywhere we go, both for backup shots and as our primary camera when we need a comfortable carry."

Memory

Memory:
"The only real problem I had was finding 64 MB Memory Sticks since none of the local stores had gotten them in yet."
_
"Again, as nearly everyone has eluded to, the biggest problem is the 8mb memory stick."
_
"2.Sony is stingy with the 8Mb memory stick, which is good for about 5 photos at 2048X1600 Pixies."
_
"The one recommendation I can give when buying this camera is that you buy the 64mb memory stick and get an extra battery."
_
"We ran out of memory sticks pretty quickly and found the price for the 64 mb stick to be pretty expensive."
_
"but I purchased the 64 and with the memory stick adaptor I have no problems with memory, while visiting in Toronto, Canada I took over 8 disks (flopies) it only takes a minute to load the program on to any computer, then you just put them on to disks and then sort them later."

_
"The quality of the photos is great."
_
"With 3.3 megapixels, mpeg mode, and the small memory stick that can store a lot of pictures makes this a great camera-- plus Sony's quality can't be beat."

Size

Size:
"Small in size, yet not so small as to be hard to hold, it does the job I ask of it well."
_
"And the aperture can be adjusted in 9 steps from F2.0 to F8.0.Another great feature is the selection of alternative image sizes."
_
"Then I found the quality of the picture was sufficiently good even if I went down to 640 x 480 size which would allow 760 images with the same 64 mb memory stick."
