Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W510
Advantages: Lightweight, good pictures, panoramic sweep function is excellent
Disadvantages: Weak battery cover
Have owned quite a few cameras in the past, from a digital slr to a proper Polaroid (I know, how retro) and bought this as a cheap point and shoot for those times when I don't want to lug loads of equipment around.
I choose this one after reading a few reviews which claimed that it was a good all-rounder, and turns out they were right. The 12.1 mp ensures pictures are sharp and rich, the colour is pretty accurate although, as with any p and s camera, sometimes the blue/green spectrum can come on a little strong and it actually copes quite well in low light conditions. The optical zoom, whilst not astonishing, is stil quite good for a camera this size and the panoramic sweep facility is extremely useful, find myself using it a lot more than I thought I would. The screen is a decent size and makes shooting a breeze and the controls, like most Sony cameras are quite intuitive. The main reason I got it was for the size and weight. It fits perfectly into most pockets and feels really light.
The only (slight) downside is a weak battery compartment cover which has a tendency to flip open and spit the battery out, especially when sliding camera into pockets. Ive read that other people have had the same problem so unfortunately it does seem to be a general fault, but this can be easily resolved by buying a case, I wouldn't let it put you off buying this product.
Overall a great general purpose, portable camera that is good value for money and produces pictures better than some more expensive makes. I would recommend it.
Summary: If you just want a good quality point and shoot camera that doesn't cost a lot, then buy this
