I bought my Dad the excellent new Canon Powershot S3 for his birthday earlier in July 2006 and decided that I really wanted a new camera too. I had intended to buy the same camera, but as I wanted to be able to use it in places like Mexico City and other large cities I decided it would be too big and overly-attractive to thieves as it can't fit in a pocket!

I had a look on the internet for the best compact digital cameras with optical zoom lenses and this one - the DSC-W70 was coming out top almost every time. I looked into the DSC-W100 too, but every review I read said that it was no better (you can't use lens filters and extension with it, and there is no decernable difference in image quality between the 7.2 and 8.1 megapixels resolutions). Therefore I opted for the W70 with a 1gb Memorystick Duo Pro (high speed) for a little over the list price of the DSC-W100.

Although I've only had the camera for a couple of days I am very impressed with the quality of the shots that I've taken so far. I have upgraded from a Sony DSC-P31 that I bought in summer 2001 and as with that machine the quality of Sony's build quality is evident (perhaps with the exception of the battery/memory card door...bit flimsy!) as soon as you take it out of the box.

The Carl Zeiss lens is extremely sensitive and produces stunning results and I am pretty impressed with the functionality of the new Cyber-shot Application software for Microsoft Windows, which allows you to view, edit and manipulate your photographs (and view slideshows).

The Amazon.co.uk price is the best out there and it was delivered within two days of my ordering it (first class postage is worth the extra few pounds).

Quite possibly the best point and click camera on the market at the moment. Excellent picture quality. Very user friendly - the on screen menu guide is great for camera novices. Large screen for reviewing shots. Small but stylish - easily hides in your pocket. Would recommend this camera to anyone.

Excellent camera. Purchased this about a month ago, and absolutely delighted with it. Great size - fits in your pocket unobtrusively. The picture selection wheel is excellent - switching between modes is realy quick. Piture quality is fantastic. Only slight niggle is the battery catch which feels on the flimsy side, but don't let that put you off.

I just want to say that I am very impressed so far with this camera. I was at first hesitant to buy but the reviews from websites had pushed my decision and most of all I found the cheapest price from Amazon.

It's got well designed functions for different shots suitable for indoor or outdoor and most weather conditions. With a 7.2 Mega Pixels using a Carl Zeiss lens it produces quality images.

Overall it has been impressive and looking forward to taking loads of pictures!!

I definately recommend the W70 for anyone who's looking for a quality digital camera.

How can I describe it!?It is simply fantastic camera to have, to shoot photos and print them out. As an intermediate user in photography this camera gives all I need to shoot some amazing photos. very simple to work and very reliable, make sure you get a 2 gig memory card if you want to use the 7.2 mega pixel mode!!

I use a Canon Eos300D with various lenses. I have recently cut down on driving and find myself lugging a camera bag, laptop and briefcase around with me so I wanted something high-quality and highly portable. My W70 has not disappointed. The sharpness and colour rendition is first rate, it starts and processes the pic instantly, the big screen is great for viewing pix; I don't like using the screen as a viewfinder but it has a proper viewfinder too. The battery seems to go on for ever between charges. It's dead easy to use and really does go in my pocket. I had mine nicked very soon after I bought it (from a dealer) and had to replace it with the same, as I had fallen in love with it! Amazon's price was much less than I paid for the first one. The only drawbacks are in low light; I can't handhold it as easily as the Canon and it switches itself on to high ISO ratings with resultant noise. It won't do everything the SLR can, but I never expected it to. But within the limitations of a compact camera it is brilliant and in good light will outperform the Eos.

I received this camera as a Christmas Present and I was certainly not dissapointed! The camera performs exceptionally well, both indoors and outdoors, producing excellent, sharp pictures. The 2.5 inch screen is great for viewing pictures before transferring them to the computer but this has not made the camera too big, fitting easily into your pocket. I also purchased the leather case which i think is necessary to prevent it from being scratched/damged. Another accessory which is very useful is a 2gb memory stick which allows me to get approximately 550 pictures on the highest setting. Overall I have found the camera very simple to use and producing very good pictures for a very reasonable price from Amazon!

Verified Purchase
I was torn between this camera and a similarly priced Canon. The feature for me that swung it is the dial on the back which gives easy access to the various shooting modes. Most other compact digi cameras require you to navigate through menus to change shooting modes which is really laborious but with the Sony you can effortlessly change modes with the dial. The picture quality is excellent and the software interface is very good. The battery lasts for ages but can take up to 5 hours to charge. The camera is really compact but feels nicely robust and well made. Overall, you won't go far wrong with this product.
