Sony DSC-W1 - Poorly Designed Battery Cover

Strengths: Great all-around features, purchsed this for the large viewing screen.

Weakness: After 2 years....the battery cover is broken and will not stay closed. Sony's suggest repair fee: $180.00!!!!!! You decide.........

If you plan on purchasing this little beauty, be careful. The battery cover wears out fairly quickly.....and in less that 2 years, you will find yourself struggling with a battery cover that won't stay closed. Sony agreed to repair the the mere cost of only $180.00!!!!!!!!!! Trying to locate a replacement part on the internet is even tougher. I have two friends who have the same...

George P from WA, Seattle

Strengths: Looks like it has good features, good battery life, and nice 2" LCD, but other than that it is totaly garbage!

Weakness: Horable Soft Pinklish Yeallowish Picture !!!

For a Sony Brand which I really like the most on electronics, I am very dissapointed about this garbage that they make. Everithing looks good on the camera but the pictures. I want to replace my kodak cx7430 which has an excellent picture quality right out the box, for the only reasona that Sony has a very good movie quality features. But the pictures are all krappy, garbeage. From scale of 1 to...

Sony DSC-W1 Oh Well!!!!!! Bought it 54 weeks ago. The Camera was good for what I used it for. I liked the 5 megapixels. I liked the movies with sound option. 44 minutes with a 1 GB memory stick. It was small; I could slip it into my pocket. A Sturdy metal case. It seemed like a little Titanic. Operated on AA batteries, that was a plus. There is sits in all its glory. Looking like a million...

i have had a nikon swivel, canon...

Strengths: takes great pictures; hard to mess up; camera makes sense; lightweight and pretty loaded with stuff. plus the gigantic lcd screen is the GREATEST!

Weakness: while supposedly easy to understand, i found the screen with the various settings, etc. very confusing at first.

i have had a nikon swivel, canon powershot (a80 and g5), a fujifilm s3100 and even a mavica -- this camera by far and away if the best digital i have ever used. i use digital photography in my art, so i am a bit picky about the quality of the shot after i download it from the camera to my PC. seriously, once you master the settings (it isn't as hard as i make it sound) this camera becomes like a...

I have used this camera...

Strengths: Small and lite enough to fit in shirt pocket. Fast shutter speed. Excellant in low light (with tripod). Cheap batteries that last 200-300 pics. Very sharp and clear pictures in P mode.

Weakness: Soft pictures in all full auto modes (but great pics in P and M modes)

I have used this camera extensively and have used all its features. I was worried at first by reviews of blurry images and soft pictures. I've read professional reviews stating similar weaknesses. So then why do my images turn out so great. Well, because all magazines reviews only evaluate the full auto settings. This camera has great sharpness but in auto (A) and other auto modes the default...
