I purchased this camera to replace an older Sony DSC-S75 digital camera. That camera had performed well for many years, and indeed still works the same as when it was new. We wanted something a little smaller and with higher resolution. Turn on time was also a problem- often by the time I had the camera powered up and ready to shoot the moment had passed!

I looked around a LOT and was ready to purchase a Canon, but then a visitor from China showed me his Sony DSC-T50 (which had just been released in the US at the time) and I was convinced it was the way to go. While I was reading up on the T50 I found a lot of references to the N2. From what I could tell, the N2 had the same great touchscreen plus a few more advanced features and a higher resolution. The lower price was icing on the cake.

This is a "family" camera- nearly all our pictures are of our kids. The great thing about this camera is the large screen and the ability to easily and clearly show off your pictures to the rest of the family without having to gather around a computer.

I think the touch screen is great. I like not having a camera full of more buttons than I'll ever figure out how to use. For someone that wants full manual control over all the shots I suspect an SLR type camera is the way to go. For someone who will be taking 95% of their shots in the default "auto" mode, I think this is the way to go.

I've taken some shots at night with mixed results. I took some pictures of a house during Halloween which was decorated with orange string lights. Holding the camera by hand produced one clear image out of three. I've found the best thing to do is set the camera down and use the 2 second timer to take pictures in extremely low light conditions.

I choose this camera because of its small size, 10 megapixels, large bright screen and previous good luck with Sony. I also bought the 4 gig card as I wanted capacity for a lot of high resolution pics.

The touch screen is GREAT!! You can figure out most of the features of the camera right away just using the touch menu.

I hooked the camera up to my PC without additional software and it worked instantly with windows. The picture quality, resolution and color are nothing short of AMAZING on a pc monitor, Photo quality in ten megapixels is incredible....

I have had several other Nikon & Sony digital camera's but nothing like the picture quality of this one in 10.1 mode.

The camera actually lets you build photo slide shows with built in special effects and music (downloaded or already on the camera).

Ease of use, picture quality, large bright screen, small size and touch menu system make this a true "Best in Class".

Cant go wrong with this one.

I waited for this camera and brought it the week it was released. I am in love with this camera. As others wrote, there is still much to be discovered as I continue to learn and read the manual, but I took pictures immediately. It is easier to use and quicker to change settings during picture taking events. The low light photos are great, as are action shots. The large viewing screen is wonderful. I looked at the 10 megapixel SLR cameras, but to have that capability in such a small format fit my needs so much better. My pictures are clear and close and great for croping and enlarging. Thanks Sony!

Verified Purchase
I buy lots of Sony products and in particular Sony Cameras. Ironically, the one I had about four years ago with 3.3. MP seems to have taken the best pictures of all, which I attribute to the telescopic (as opposed to internal) zoom lens. Comparing several cameras, it just seems this particular feature results in sharper, more dynamic photos. I was pleased to find the DSC-N2 went back to a telescopic lens in a compact style. The photos are fantastic and the camera is easy to use (once you get used to touch screen for everything). So I give the camera itself high marks. The reason for giving it a 1 star is this: The camera died after three months. It was working fine, I was in the middle of taking a shot when suddenly the camera froze. That was it. I buy enough electronics to know this happens from time to time and shouldn't be an overall deterrent. There's always a chance of a bad one in the bunch. However, the treatment from Sony was so appalling that I felt the need to offer this warning to others. I called Sony, they agreed it was still under warranty and asked that I mail it to the repair center. I get a call from them a week later telling me the camera suffered from internal corrosion caused by water moisture and is therefore not covered by the warranty (their policy is that the warranty does not cover any external or internal damage. Go figure). They told me it looked as if the camera had been submerged in water. I explained that didn't happen, but they would only go on what their technician told them. Evidentially a simple humid environment can cause internal corrosion. I was near the ocean. Go figure. The cost to repair the camera was $586. They're only other solution was for me to purchase a brand new one from them at a cost of $250. Obviously others are having good luck with their N2, but if this camera is so susceptible to humidity, one might consider an extended accidental warranty with the purchase.
