Haven't Sony just got it down in the camera department, I have never owned a good camera what with having a decent camera on phones, however my latest phone doesn't have the greatest camera so I decided to buy a good digital camera and there was no doubt in my mind that it was going to be a Sony.
Now i'm pretty good with technology but I've never really used digital camera's before so I went to speak to a trustworthy professional about what range Sony had and this was the first camera he showed me. I found that I picked up the menu of this camera really quick (a couple of minutes tops). After about 20 minutes of talking about the camera and showing me the various features that it has to offer I was sold and walked out of the shop with my very first digital camera.
The camera is nice and compact and yet doesn't have that cheap feeling to it that you might get when holding something relatively small and its also light so your not going to have a problem carrying this around with you. Also the camera looks great, I have seen some real eyesores but the lens sinking nicely into chassis is really cool looks great.
With 12.1 megapixels this camera takes great quality pictures and with features such as face detection which you can change between adult or child and steady shot the camera really does all the hard work for you when snapping your pictures. One great feature about the camera is the 4x optical zoom with wide angle this basically means that you can zoom in keeping the quality and the wide angle perfect for squeezing in those group shots. Also there is the iAuto feature which makes the camera decide on the best settings and contrasts for your picture again removing any hard work you have in taking your pictures.
Probably my favorite addition to this camera is the sweep panorama setting this allows you to just hold down the button and sweep your camera along for multiple pictures to be taking at different angles. The camera also allows you to record high quality videos and you can even play them on your TV with an AV cable, this is a superb feature of the camera it really does record videos of high quality.
The camera comes with a rechargeable battery which removes the fuss of buying new batteries or stealing them from the TV remote (we've all done it). Also it has an SD card slot so which you can pick up quite cheap online so you could even carry a couple of these which would mean you wouldn't be worried about filling it up and not being anywhere near your computer to move them across.
The SD card plugs straight into my laptop and and it was a simple copy and paste job to transfer all of the photo's across to the computer there was no messing around with software or trying to get the computer to recognize the camera making everything about the camera stress free.
Summary: great little device for taking high quality pictures and videos.
