Summary: I had the Sony cyber Shot 2.0 and the Sony Cyber Shot 7.2 they worked real well for what I was useing them for shots on the road,etc this DCS-W190 is about a 1/4 of the size of the 2.0 and about 1/2 the size of the 7.2 and has the same functions,the other two always buying batteries, nice to have a charger with this one,noticed some bad reviews on this ? but I was comfortable with the product and not trying to be an Ansel Adams.This is a great camera for the price.
Very Handy Little Camera - Good for Documenting Projects
3 July 2012
Summary: I bought this camera when it first came out some time in 2009 and have been using it ever since. While I have used it for general as well as as some artsy photography, it is now mostly used to document my automotive projects. Its small design, strong flash, and good focus make it very ideal for photographing parts in tight spaces. And the pictures come out very sharp, though every thing needs a bit of quick touching up in a photo editor.
Summary: I had this camera for almost a year and video resolutions is ok not bad according to the camera price but the pictures are not good as expected from sony , take very long time between shots , Burst is very bad and slow , tried too many different setting but nogo and still the same problem with the shutter speed. just dont buy it and buy more expensive camera instead of wasting your money on this camera .
Summary: This camera was an employment award - I chose it instead of $150 cash that was an option because of all the rave reviews. I wish I'd taken the money, added to it and gotten something else! It has never exposed a single indoor flash picture properly. All flash pics are completely overexposed, it's horrible in low light and it's horrible in otherwise brightly lit indoor situations. I've wasted countless time adjusting the settings to no avail.
Summary: Spend a little extra and get a better camera. I asked for one that was only about $50 more and my cheap boyfriend bought me this piece of junk instead. There are tons of options for improving your pictures, but even with all these options the picture quality still sucks beyond belief. Whoever is giving these rave reviews has never own a real camera and knows nothing about photography.
Summary: after reading the raving reviews of some of these buyers...makes me shake my head. Im shocked sony puts thier name on this garbage. First of all folks, about the 150$ cameras = total garbage. like a 1500$ car, if you have no money for anything better, fine, but please dont rave to the world how great your 1500$ car is. The picture quality and color on this DSC-W190 is horrid. End of review.
