This is a very short and simple review. The camera ROCKS! Super easy to use, and navigate. It has many, and even more functions than I will need, but It doesn't overwhelm you! Turn on the camera and your ready to shoot. I love that the camera is a genius. No seriously, this camera detects your surroundings, SMART EH?. If its too dark it will adjust to twilight mode, or maybe there's a view of mountains and fields, the cam will instantly switch to landscape mode. It feels awesome to no longer need to turn any knobs so that the scene focus can change. Aside from this, what really-really made me want this camera was how the panorama shot sounded. Reading the feature before purchase really interested me. After I received the cam and tried it, I was so amazed at the intense wide capture my cam could make. Sure, if you sweep your hand to fast or shaky, you may just get a weird boxy image. However, take your time sweeping your hand and relax, and the image is beautiful enough to make you own home wall art. Lastly, I took video and the quality looked great on cam, I haven't uploaded video yet so I have no further details as to how good of quality video really is, but the pictures all come out stunning. Pfft, funny part is, I even have it on a lower pixel setting to capture a size of around 4x6... Everyone, no regrets... buy this truly cheap camera and forget about going to Walmart for a deal... Clearly the deal of quality and price is right here with this Sony. How I see it, I should scream to ya... GET IT NOW! :D

I needed a new everyday camera. I have 2 young kids and I needed something that I could throw in my purse and use at baseball games and school functions. This camera takes clear colorful pictures, has a great battery life and is easy to use for pics or video. Downloads to my laptop took seconds. For the $100 price tag you just can't beat it.

The camera arrived as expected, and it does what it suppose to do! I did quite a bit of research and review before purchasing this camera! I already have a digital SLR, so I only need one for capturing everyday events like in school, at work, or visiting folks, day to day photography can only be made convenient with portable digital camera such as this one, imaging carry a SLR all day long :) ANyway, so it is however like a toy though, made with cheap plastics, appear super light, thus gives off a "fragile" vibe. Function wise, it is pretty decent, I pick this one especially for its build in "isteady" function, image quality is pretty good too, have an auto scene detection function that select the best image mode for you! Most impressive feature however though is the smile detection function, automatically takes a picture when subject smiles! pretty neat!
over all, I am happy with this purchase at this point, now the question would be how long will it last? I will update this review once something come up!

***Quick Note: This camera does not come with an SD card***

When I bought this camera I was looking for a cheaper alternative to my DSLR camera that I could take with me to events where my big camera wasn't allowed or when I just didn't feel like taking the DSLR with me... This camera fits the bill perfectly.

The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W510 is very small and the large screen takes up most of the real estate on the back. It's good to look for a physical zoom in a digital camera, which this one has and it works very well.

I'm extremely impressed with the flash on this camera, maybe I've been using cellphone cameras for too long but I haven't seen a flash that's as bright and works as well as this one does on a Point and Shoot in a long while. Aside from just taking pictures, the camera can take video(with audio) and the really cool thing that's take panorama pictures in one shot. You simply hold down the button and rotate the camera, it does the rest... Very cool.

I use a 4gb sandisk SD card and it seem to have plenty space (especially if you drop the quality down from 12MP). As I mentioned in the note, there was no SD card included with the camera so be sure to pick one up here on Amazon when you buy the camera to save yourself from in-store overpricing.

This camera is definitely recommended, its a great price, compact size, good quality image, and comes with a rechargeable battery(and charger). What more could you want from a Point and Shoot?

Hope this review helped!

I may have just gotten a bad model but every single picture I have taken with this camera is WAY too overexposed. The flash completely washes out every person in the picture no matter how far away we stand and even the background. I've never experienced this before on a point and shoot camera. I don't know why it's doing this and I wanted to see if anyone else had this problem and/or if anyone knows how to fix this issue? I really wish I didn't have this problem- seemed like such a great deal and otherwise has great reviews! Unfortunately at this time, I plan on returning this item and buying anther point and shoot digital camera. I wish I could add a picture I've taken for an example of what I am describing. Thank for any help!

I like this camera a lot. It's priced right and its very easy to use. Most of the cameras functions are automatic so you end up with great photos. Overall very happy with this camera!

I got this camera as a gift for Christmas. I literally have used it 2x and it is broken. It will not close its lens and will not take pictures. When I went to return the camera, I had missed the window of return by ONE DAY. Now I am stuck with a broken camera. I have talked with others who have also purchased this camera and had the same issue. This camera is NOT a good purchase.

I bought this camera as a Christmas present for my mother. From the description I knew it was going to be very user friendly, which is good, as she is someone who has been using a disposable camera forever. For the serious photographer who wants a small camera, this one may not be the best for you because there aren't very many special things you can do with it (black and whites, digital macro, etc.) It's very much a point and shoot camera. I found the price to be reasonable for what you get. I think she'll like it!

If you are not looking for fancy camera, this one will do the job.
Display quality is not that great(3/5) but after you see the pictures on the PC results are better.

Picture Quality it's OK and it's not heavy or bulky at all.

I mostly use it for work (Engineering) and some ocations that are not relevant.

I have other DSC for really special ocations =).

Then only thing I did not like is the autofocus but nowadays most of the cameras have.
