I actually have some positive points and not so positive points regarding this camera.

I like the resolution but when you zoom or if you take a picture with an object that's very near, now there's the challenge. Zooming will make the picture taken appear pixelized or unnatural while taking a picture of a near object will make that object appear as if it was dipped with an oil. But I guess this is common with point and shoot cameras because the features are not as well equiipped as a SLR or DSLR for that matter.

Connectivity as well is something that disappoints me, although this device is a pluc and play device, it requires a special connectivity cable and not the universal one. If your cable gets busted you would have to buy a connectivity cable from sony themselves whereas if this device had a universal connectivity cable it will not be as hard since there are lots of universal connectivity cable in the market.

Normal pictures though are fascinating and it can even compete with the pictures taken using a DSLR. Portability is a plus factor and the exterior design. It has a wide LCD and it is also user-friendly. I also like the fact that it will auto shut down when it is idle for quite a long time thereby saving battery life. Quick battery charging is also a plus point for this camera, it will only take around an hour and you're ready to capture the moments of an event once again.

But comparing to the camera I had that my brother lost, you are actually paying the right price. My previous camera cost me around Php11k with only 6mp and 3x zoom capabilities. This cost around Php8k with 10.1mp and 3x zoom.
