    Battery life is not a problem. Get hi-power rechargeables. Sony do branded ones (even available in larger branches of Tesco!!). I personally use Energizer Advanced rechargeables with a rated capacity of 2500 mAh. They last about 100 shots per pair. I recharge them with an Energizer 15 minute recharger (actually takes about 20 minutes! - and the batteries come out HOT - so I leave another minute or too before putting back in the camera). I suggest other reviewers are using cheap, low-capacity batteries or mediocre disposables. I took three sets of batteries (one pair in the camera, + 4 in the little packet you buy them in (suitable re-taped to hold it together) on my recent trip to Russia - I had no problems with battery life at all!!
    be careful when you replace the batteries in the camera - the little battery door is not a stong design, and if you misalign it often, it will eventually break.

    When it comes to buying electronics online, I always spend a good few hours (or sometimes days) reading online reviews and this came up as a very good camera for it's value. In fact, it beat many reviews for cameras over twice its price. The reviews certainly were not wrong- and was very pleased by the quality of pictures and ease of use. I bought another Sony camera about 2 years ago, slightly more expensive, and again, i bought this based on it's value and based on excellent online reviews.

    The picture quality is very good and i would say that about 5% of pictures i have taken have come out slightly blurred, other than that no problems. I normally just set the camera to take auto pictures (which works out how best to take the picture depending on the circumstances of the shot (e.g. night/day/snow etc.) and the pictures come out fine. You can however set it manually with easy to follow pictures which indicated on a dial for slightly better results, but I think i have only noticed better results with this so far with the 'night mode' setting.

    I was very surprised at the excellent quality of the video setting. This runs at 30 frames a second and does have sound. I think it would be hard to distinguish between the smoothness of this and many video cameras, especially in sunny conditions and indoors.

    It is also quite a robust camera, having got in accidentally soaking wet in the rain and dropping it a couple of times while running onto hard hard surfaces- works fine with nothing rattling inside!

    A couple of negative points which i feel may be slightly unfair, given all the positives of the camera and the price- also the reason for giving it 4 stars, perhaps 4.5 may have been fairer. The picture given on the website of the camera is slightly deceptive.

    I bought this camera after being impressed by the picture quality of the cybershot photos on my sony mobile phone.
    The camera is really easy to use, i prefer to use the auto setting and my photos always turn out well.
    It can take a fair amount of punishment. I have dropped it countless times on nights out and even had drinks spilled on it and it still looks and works perfectly.
    If you are looking for an easy to use camera that gives you great quality pictures every time then this is the camera for you.

    I don't have a DSC730 but I do have the similar Sony digital DSC600 camera which takes great pictures under all conditions, is very quick to auto-focus and fire, and is ideal for 'point and shoot' photo.

    I also had problems with battery life (every time I picked the camera up the batteries were flat) until I started using Uniross HYBRIO rechargeable batteries, they come in 2100mAh AA size, which does not seem much, but where they score over normal NiMh batteries is that they come fully charged and have a very low self-discharge rate (they still have 80% of their charge after 12 months). Even when not in the camera, normal NiMh rechargeables lose their charge at a frightening rate and even 3 weeks after a full charge can be down to less than 50%, and fully discharged in a couple of months. With hybrio they normally last me about 3 to 4 months of average use (about 200 to 300 shots) - You can get Hybrio batteries from maplins and can use them straight away out of the box, then use your NORMAL NiMh charger to charge them.

    The big problem even with very High capacity 'normal' NiHh batteries (2500 and 2700mAh) is that they still suffer from a really high self-discharge and people get fed up of having flat batteries even though they charged them up a few weeks ago have hardly used the camera. Bear in mind that your 'fully charged spare set' is leaking current away quite rapidly even though they are not in the camera, so you may be very disapointed when you put the spare set in the camera and are only able to take a few pictures.
