Overall it is great but I went on vacation and forgot to pack the software and the sony web site did not have it avaliable to download. I sent an e-mail and am still waiting.

Very user friendly (my 2nd digital cam), the power button is WAY TOO SMALL! Should have had the AC adapter included. Let me say again, USER FRIENDLY. Problems: none

This thing sucks batteries Dry in NO TIME FLAT, I really recommend that you buy the Info-Lithium Battery that is available for this camera. Sure its 100 bucks for the full batter and charger and camera package kit, but that info-lithium batter gives me about 100 minutes of run time, it does last a heck of a lot longer than you would get with normal Alkaline batteries. The Images are beautiful, and I like the fact that it uses a USB interface, I even use it as a mobile Hard drive, and put ...

This was my first choice for starter digital camera, I like the easy-to-use features and the camera construction. 1.2 megapixel is good enough for snapping photos. Problems: I returned it the very next day, due to the poor battery life. Yes, I used the alkalines that came with it. But a running time of 20 mins max was a joke.The 4MB memory was way to small for storing high res pictures. I bought another brand as a replacement.

good stuff, but too expensive. i'm living in tokyo now, so the 64meg card was only $50, and the recharger kit was only $55. this is much cheaper than the last time i checked best buy in oregon. Problems: slow flash recharge & cost

Great camera. Yes, battery life is wicked short. MUST buy recharger and batteries. Works great with a Clie', can do some fun stuff with the two! Problems: Just the fact that I can't seem to set "flash" on as default...(maybe I can, can't find it...email me if I can :)

I solved the batttery problem by paying $15 for off brand (Quest) battery charger with 4 Ni-Hydride (?) batteries included that I purchased at Wal-mart and it wasn't even on sale! Don't need the AC adapter, I just purchased a memory stick reader at Staples for $30. A great camera and with a little looking around, low cost solutions, next on my list is to get a 2X tiffen of Raynox lens for under $50. Good luck
