Overall I'm very pleased with my W150. I bought it purely because I wanted a digital camera with an optical viewfinder - something which is very hard to come by these days, and helps a lot if you're taking pictures in direct sunlight.
This has to be one of the best cameras around for ease of use - Sony have really worked their magic on the W150's menus and have designed the button layout very well indeed.
The W150 comes with some excellent features - the 'smile shutter' for example, detects (or tries to detect anyway...) when people are smiling, and automatically takes the photo at the optimum moment. It's really more of a gimmick than anything, but it's certainly fun to play around with when you're with your friends.
The screen is a good size, and is of good quality. It's nice and easy to see what it is you're taking a photo of, etc.
The photos themselves are excellent too - there are a few little niggles typical of a compact camera (such as some noise in low-light conditions), but it's easy to get over.
The video mode is fantastic for a standard compact camera though - compared to my Ricoh, it's astounding. I think the resolution is only VGA, but it still manages to look crisp once uploaded to my computer, and has excellent sound recording capabilities.
Overall, an excellent camera and a great companion for nights/trips out! :)
I have become rather fond of my little camera - it isn't the best, flashiest most souped-up camera that I've ever seen, but I wouldn't want it to be. If what you're looking for is a camera that can take good pictures, has a fair amount of special features and is pretty simple to use, then I would happily recommend this one. It takes wonderful quality shots, you can have flash on or off, red eye reduction, you can take photographs in black and white or sepia, you can make the colours in the shot more vivid, take short films and take pictures on a number of different settings (some include portrait, landscape, twilight, easy settings, automatic settings and so on. In addition, it has a face detector and a couple of completely bizzarre features to do with smiling - one where you set the camera to "detect" when someone is smiling and it will automatically take a picture. I've never really found much use for this feature, as I always have to smile like an absolute maniac before the camera detects my smile. The other feature is even more strange, you detect someone's face, then take a picture of them. you can then alter their smile, so that they are smiling more - the "level 5 smile" looks absolutely demented. I have no idea what sony were thinking when they included this feature, but I find it good for a laugh. It's a relatively cheap camera, and personally I couldn't be happier with it.
I have had this camera for quite a few months now. i couldnt wait to get my hands on it throw get rid of my old camera i had had for far too long. The main factor that i was looking for was a camera that was cheap but had a good picture quality.
i always take this camera on nights out whenever i do go out, the flash on the camera is great, the picture quality is amazing however you have to have a steady hand.
I often found that a lot of my pictures turned out to be blurry.
But the settings and all the camera options is great, and cane be a lot of fun.
If i went for anotehr camera i would have to go for the models up from this however i do not regret buying the camera, it is good for money and it brings out great pictures.

A 2.7" LCD, Carl Zeiss 5X optical zoom lens and Sony's Double Anti-Blur solution are also there for crisp, clear images and tight zooms. All this combined with an attractive body make the W150 an excellent choice for capturing the moment no matter where you are.
