Simply Over-rated

  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Ease of Use:
  • Durability:
  • Battery Life:
  • Movie Quality:

Pros:Small, handy, sleek, good batt life.

Cons:Picture noisy, poor color balance, poor contrast.

The Bottom Line: If your budget is around that range, don't even bother to get it as well unless size is an important factor. If you're thinking of image quality, forget it!


Just bought this camera due to the good ratings. A total disappointment after my purchase!

Picture quality totally sucks big time, with poor contrast (regardless of auto/manual), and over-saturation of the recorded color (despite having done a proper manual color balance). To make things WORST, the picture is inherently noisy!!! The color and contrast still can be edited by computer, but the noise in the picture really spoils everything.

Other comments about picture quality, the battery life seems to be rather good. handling of the camera is a bit awkward, but takes a little getting used to. It's a power packed camera, with fancy functions, but the image quality just doesn't match up to any other cheaper Sony Digital 8 camera.


If I can get a refund after purchasing the camera, I'd definitely do it! Don't make the same mistake as I did! This camera totally sucks!
