Easy but Powerful
“I bought it because I always wanted a good point and shoot for low light situations, and since it was one of the features advertised I wanted to give it a try, and I am very satisfied with them. Low light pictures are very good, even when you do not use the flash, can still get a good picture at night, with not so much light around.” – By Sergio Zavarce
Great new Sony camera for 2013. Here’s a rundown after my first week.
“It is a very powerful and compact device and after using it for a week it performs much better than my older Sony model in overall speed and low light conditions. This is due to the upgraded processor and the upgraded Exmor R sensor. This new model has an 8x zoom which is an upgrade from the 5x of the previous model which is a welcome addition.” – By Cayden Thacker
Excellent little camera!
“Easy to use with amazing quality in both high and low light situations. I often turned off the flash indoors and got beautiful pictures with a lot more character than if I’d used the flash. The cameras small size is both a blessing and a curse. Very easy to slip into any pocket.” – By VaVet96
This being a new model is full of features
“This camera is loaded with more features than I expected and takes wonderful pictures. Very easy to figure out the camera settings menu for ease of use.. I did a battery upgrade and would recommend this to be very worthwhile especially with the dual voltage charger..” – By Vic Hett
