My first digital camera. I had it for 2 years and had really no issues with it. The pictures came out really good if ideal lighting was present. Night pictures were almost impossible without a tripod or a real steady hand. Problems: The LCD screen decided to go white and display an image after a year of owning it. Something came lose inside it dealing with the LCD.

Nice model which take the image very fast. I´m unhappy regarding the missing TV-out port on the camera. Also the SONY memory stick PRO card doesn´t work into other memory stick devices, such as my camcorder. Problems: TV-out Memory Stick PRO card works only in ´PRO´ devices not on normal memory stick devices.
