So if you're looking for a good awesome digital camera, i would recommend this one.
A Delighted Amazon-er
Since I was (as others were) impressed by the overall photo quality of my prior camera, I decided to pick up another one, but in a newer model.

If you want a camera that is easy to operate and very good quality then this one should be considered.

I bought the Cybershot DSC-W220 for my mom's birthday. She is by no means an enthusiast. It's purpose is going to be primarily for family photos. We had a HP camera before and decided it was time to upgrade. She has sight problems and had trouble seeing pictures on the tiny Hp screen, but this 2.7" LCD screen on the W220 helps her a lot.

The controls are easy enough that anyone in my family can use it, from a preteen to a grandfather. Most of the time, you can just leave it on the Auto setting and the camera will adjust settings automatically. There are separate buttons for Playback/Review, Menu, and Home next to the LCD screen. The On/Off button on the top of the camera is a bit hard to press (sometimes you have to use your nail), but it's understandable because otherwise it'd be easy to accidentally turn the camera on/off. There is a light that comes on from the front so the subjects know when the picture is about to be taken. The Smile Detection automatically takes up to 6 photos, and has a smile meter showing scale of smile(s). Scene Detection detects scenes such as snow, beach, etc automatically and adjusts settings accordingly.

I was debating on whether to get this, the W230, or the Nikon Coolpix. The Nikon seems great but in-store testing demonstrated the quality of the pictures-they were too soft. The touchscreen feature was nice, but not nice enough for a sacrifice in quality. I was short on time, so I grabbed the W220 from BestBuy because the W230 was almost $100 more. After doing some research, and talking to a Sony rep, the only noticeable difference between the W220 and the W230 is the larger screen (2.7" vs 3.0", respectively). I wish now I had more time so that I could've gotten the W230 from the Sony website-it's only $20 more!

I bought this last month to replace my older cybershot, and am impressed with the upgrades Sony has made to this line.

What I love:
* The automatic "Easy" mode is quite good, great for those times when you need a quick shot of something you weren't expecting, or for beginners who don't like playing with settings.

* Wide angle zoom

* indoor shots look great, even under incandescent bulbs

* Closeups give good detail. Flowers and insects make good models.

* Connects to my HDTV to show off photos

* Ultra compact, easy to carry

* Great battery life

What I hated:

* No SD card support, this is a Sony product so it will only use Sony's proprietary media, which is more expensive.

* While the battery is great, I'd still prefer AA rechargables, since buying an AA battery is easier than finding an outlet while traveling.

* Lens has some color issues in the wide angle end, as well as soft corners

* Zoom moves in large steps, what if I want in-between?

* Menu system is confusing

* No optical viewfinder, meaning I always have to use LCD. Would be nice to save on batteries sometimes.

This little camera suits me well, and I've been using it over my canon elph. I have nicer cameras, but I never seem to have them when the most interesting things in my life happen. Compatcs, like this guy, are with me all the time. And with 12P to work with, I can still make large prints like I would with my better cameras.

I have had this camera for more than a month, if you want a basic digital camera that is not confusing and takes great pictures this is an ideal camera. If you want good movie capture than stay away, this is for taking photos not video although the video can be good if indoors and good lighting. I like the ability to choose between HD and SD easily and has the ability to take HD photos in 16:9 format for viewing on wide screen HD tv's I have done that a bit and found the pictures to be crystal clear, I have a 55" sony HDTV and if you are concerned about your pictures looking grainy when blown up, Don't.
I feel very happy with this purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for digital camera for under $200. I have no regrets. I wanted a camera to take great HD photos, quality optics, 4x optical zoom and compatible with my other media. I would rate this camera above average in photo quality and speed of use. I did not give this a five star rating because the burst mode is not very fast and I would have liked a few more features like more complex settings for iso and focus adjustments but then again I was not expecting a full feature set for a non SLR under $200. Very strong Value for the dollar you will enjoy, PS, I am using sandisk pro duo memory sticks and works just fine, Sandisk is so much less expensive than the actual sony pro duo's

We have 14 of these camera's in use in our surgery center, I choose and purchase all our cameras. Last year we went through an exhaustive search to see if Nikon, Canon, Kodack, and several other brands would work as well as our Sony's that we've used for the last 4 years. After purchasing several cameras to try them out, we decided to stay with Sony, due to ease of use and reliability. After reading the reviews we choose the DSC-W220, and replaced all our surgery and skin graphing camera's with these. We are thrilled, they are extremely easy to use and yet give us incredibly detailed photos. Each camera takes about 1000 photos a month, and these have been real champs so far. We have had no problems, and even our newest most camera-shy nurses have taken to them very easily.

If your looking for a powerful, lots of functions, easy to use camera at a good price, I'd definitely recommend this one.
