Advantages: Good all rounder; excellent buy
Disadvantages: Quite expensive; doesn't come with memory stick
When my new Sony Cyber-shot arrived, i was sceptical - i had never been good with cameras. However, the uservinterface of this camera is exceptional. It has a very handy viewfinder, somewhat an irregularity for most digital cameras, who rely on a screen alone.
This was invaluable for when I went on holiday and couldn't see the screen due to the sun and reflections from the sandy beaches. It alows a perfectly framed shot in an environment where the weather makes taking a picture a complete mission.
The slim camera is eaily slipped into a bag or pocket and the massive, crystal-clear screen is fabulous. The fact that it is 12.1 mpx setting allows a beautiful, un-pixelated A3 image for those extra special photos. However, i recomend that you use the 5 mpx setting for general snaps as the camera doesnt come with a memory stick and you would be surprised just how fast you use up photos as photography become very addictive with this camera
This said, though, the memory of the camera is quite large especially with a memory stick and you dont have to worry about using up space through the video function as you can still take hundreds of photos on top of tens of videos.
With high memory such as above you dont have to worry about using the video part of the camera, you can shoot hundreds of photos too and just delete any poor ones.
The features of the camera for example the macro setting are very high-tec. Taking photos of flowers and nature with this setting is highly enjoyable and you get a brilliant end-product. On top of these settings is a brilliant slide show/ movie setting where you can create a brilliant Tv adaptable show for loved ones complete with music. With the software provided you can edit on your computer or burn to CD/DVD etc. You can even playback your photos on the camera screen immediately and show your family/friends using the aptly named Playback function.
The many different modes eg landscape, night, snow etc easily accesed. The rapid funtion allows a very paparazzi style of photography and can result in fun images of your lad playing football or your daughter in her dance competition.
All things considered, would I recommend this camera to a friend despite the fact it is not the cheapest out there? Of course I would. Go for it now! You will love it. Guaranteed.
Summary: Very good quality camera, not the cheapest but definitely worth going for.
