  • Very good camera
    by: steve
    This tiny camera fits in a shirt pocket but takes superb photos. I bought it as a "carry camera", as I frequently leave my bulky DSLR cameras at home because they are a pain to lug around. On a recent vacation, I took this and a DSLR. After the first day when I saw the results, I left the DSLR in the hotel and just carried the little Sony in my pocket. The photos were outstanding. This camera truly lives up to its reviews.

  • Great IQ, small, expensive
    by: Salman
    Very tiny and solid, surface is slippery, the Sony $15 glue-on grip improves handling very much. The menus are the same as the alpha 77 SLT which makes it a seamless transition from the SLT. The layout of the menus could be better though. The buttons and ring are very customizable. The ring that is click-less is a little off putting but one gets used to it. Image quality is very good. The lens while fast as a 1.8 at 28mm equivalent, quickly loses speed as it is zoomed. Video is great but the non-cancelable digital zoom (which also has a different zooming speed) is a bit of a pain. There are some other Sony quirks it inherits from the SLTs; to operate the HDR when you are in RAW mode, you first have to get out of RAW and then set HDR (rather than the camera doing it automatically), the Flash Auto setting is not available in the creative auto modes as an option, only On or Off. Overall a great camera, just quite expensive considering one can get a new Canon S110 these days for ~$220.

  • Even better than anticipated
    by: 46er
    I've had this camera for a couple of weeks and am still learning about all of the features. I bought it to replace a less sophisticated point and shoot camera so that I could carry it on trips without missing the features of my larger DSLR. The features I wanted were the large sensor size, manual exposure, and the ability to record Raw images. These features are straight forward to use and work well. The manual that comes with the camera does not sufficiently describe use of all the features so I purchased a book. Going through the book I'm amazed at the controls one has even on the auto setting. You can easily access settings to change white balance, exposure control, depth of field, etc. Another surprise to me is the ability to use manual focus. I'm only partway through my book so I'm looking forward to more surprises. In short, I love this camera and the photos it produces. For negatives, the grip is a little precarious with no specific handhold, no view finder, and no external charger. I can easily live without the first two and I purchased an external charger with extra battery. Also, I purchased an Adorama open-box item and found it to be perfect with a full USA warranty.

  • Great Compact Camera!

    I bought this camera for my trip to Iceland. I didn't want to carry around a large camera. This camera is the best!

  • Excellent

    Image Quality. Period. No other camera this size comes close. I'm finding I'm leaving my DSLR at home a lot these days.
