Firstly, i would like to suggest that you only buy this camera if you already have experience in using a sony cybershot. Some of the features are really difficult to use as the user interface is rather complex.
It is an awesome camera though! The pictures are crystal clear and crisp, and the anti shake and blur is very good.. as is the close up macro facility. I took a picture of my jeans and you could see the denim grain! Thats how good the focus is. With features such as "smile" whereby the camera automatically takes photos when it detects a smile is very clever!
One problem i did find with this though, is that you cannot change the quality of the photo. IE, with other cameras, you can set image properties such as 'Normal, Fine, or Superfine'. This camera doesnt have that function.
The touch screen is a little bit annoying at times but you get used to it.
The camera overall is very good, neat, and compact. I would highly recommend to anyone, as there are now actual things to fault it with, other than it being a tad hard to use with all its menu features.
Definitely a camera for those who know how to handle future technologies.
