“Really good pictures for a small inexpensive sony 20.1 2camera. Nice size when traveling and want to take a lot of pictures and not use I-Phone”

“Also comes in a nice black!”

“I Love this camera! It takes amazing pictures and has a great zoom too. It’s super compact and fits in my purse or back pocket! Easy to use!”

“Outside on a bright sunny day it works perfectly and the zoom delivers good results. Movies and sound, for very basic shooting, are reasonable. The sony 20.1 4panorama option I thought was really rather superficial, far too short at a few seconds to do anything creative though maybe useful if you wanted to shoot a room interior or line of people. Nice of Sony to replace the rather ungainly zoom lever with a much more easy to use toggle switch on this camera.”
