Ok, I read 1,000's of reviews, looked at every video review and tested tons of cameras out. In my mind and what most Best Buy people will tell you is that Canon's are it for digital cameras. I bought the Canon Powershot 1200IS, and it took horrible pictures - not crisp at all. I have a 1 year old who runs around like crazy and this camera does such a good job! It looks nice, the size is great, the price is great and I could not ask for more! I thought it would be impossible to get a good camera that wasn't a slr for a decent price. This is the best out there - don't waste hours and hours looking on the internet, I'm saving you your time: get this one!!! Or atleast buy it from somewhere where you have the option to return it, I gaurantee you wont!

I was looking for a digital camera to take with me on my trip to Australia. Being a trip of a lifetime, I wanted to make sure I returned with amazing pictures and video that helped me remember and share my experience. I shopped online and in stores comparing prices and brands. This camera provides easy use with great results at an affordable price. There are many functions to choose from allowing for optimal performance. It is compact and easy to become accustomed with. The larger lcd screen was helpful when capturing and reviewing pictures. The video function picks up sound well, but you cannot zoom while filming. The settings can be manually configured to be adjusted to your preferences, but there is also a function for easy shooting. Battery life was sustainable and allowed for full days of picture taking. Viewing pictures as a slide show on the camera is great, because it plays music along with it, and you can add your own music to add a personal touch. I was able to capture images quickly with the fast response time of the shutter. Overall, I was completely satisfied with this product and would recommend it to someone shopping for a decent digital camera, but isn't quite ready for a SLR. The pictures turned out great!

I have tried Sony W290, Canon SD 790 and SD 1200, this is the best camera of all. Beautiful and vivid pictures, time to start up is very fast. in burst mode, you can take several pictures, and I mean it's take very fast, I love this. compare with W290, W230 is better and it's cheaper. I have both, but I have returned the W290 to Dell.

For performance, I give it 4 stars, but the price is better than W290 so I give it 5 Stars!

Excellent device for the price.
I highly recommend it.

I absolutely love this camera! I looked around to find a good review for weeks before buying it but I couldn't find more than 2 or 3 reviews. As soon as I opened the box I fell in love with this camera. It's definitely more red than hot pink (which it sort of looks like online). The pictures come out great and there are tons of special features, such as red eye reduction, smile detection, and tons of others that I haven't had the chance to try out yet.
Even if the picture doesn't look great when you first take it, when you check it in review it's usually blur-free and the lighting is fantastic.
I was scared to purchase this camera because my old Sony's lens stopped working after a year, so I bought the 2-year warranty on this just in case, but so far I haven't had any problems.
It's definitely worth the money and I hope this review helps!

I needed a second still image camera for business since we share a single one in the office, which often results in delays. I was so happy with the Sony Cybershot DSCW80 that I bought about two or three years ago, that it was a no-brainer to upgrade to this newer, higher megapixel version. This is my fourth Sony digital camera, and I'm loving it.

I can't stress enough how wonderful the anti-blur technology on the camera is. While these newer, lightweight cameras are much more portable than their predecessors, it's also hard to hold them steady without a little of that extra weight. I don't have Parkinson's, but I don't have a steady surgical hand either, and this camera totally makes up for it. I don't like using the zoom feature without a tripod, but the more you zoom in on any camera, the shakier you get if you don't have it on a steady surface. It just goes with the territory.

I am an amateur photographer--I use this for just regular photographs of everyday things. I need something simple to point and shoot. It has the same basic controls that my other Sonys have had, with the bonus of a slightly larger screen on the back. Most users will probably have little trouble using the dials and menu on the back to try different settings and to view the pictures you've already taken. I doubt if you'll have to consult the manual if you've had any experience with digital cameras before.

I have video cameras and image editing software, so I didn't use the video function and did not install or use Sony's software on my computer, so I can't comment on either of those functions. The battery charges more quickly than previous models, and seems to have longer life for my still image shooting.
