Construction is superb, with the productive aluminum casing protecting against most wear and tear. I have dropped the camera from five feet onto concrete surfaces, leaving practically no mark. The feature set is decent. Manual and auto focus, but no complicated controls. Image quality is excellent - this 2.0 MP is perfect for all the 4x6's you could ever want. I'm still impressed with shots I took as a beginner. Very, very easy to use. After a few shots, you'll be photographing like a pro! ...

Actually I've got 45.000 shots tacked with my Sony, I'm really happy with it, I bring it to all my travels (Roma, Egypt, EE.UU) as a second machine, and I've take great pictures on all that places, Now I can imagine my live without my pocket cam....

I have also now had my U20 for a year now...and it has been the perfect 2nd camera and travel camera. I bought this with my F717 for those times I just wanted a small point-and-shoot...money very well invested. Pictures are quite good, camera is immensely simple to use, and quality is near-perfection. Problems: No problems at all. Would love to see Sony continue to support the U-line of cameras and create a 3.2 or 4MP version of it, or possibly work on a better waterproof case solution ...

Have had this camera for almost a year now...taken well over a thousand pics. Absolutely love it for what it is: a convenient (small) and easy to use back-up. The pics are quite acceptable and have captured many moments that would have been lost if I had to dig out my larger cams. Extremely well made...I recommend it highly. Problems: none

I bought this digcam because I needed a small single-hand use camera for my bike touring shots (while riding) and also needed immediate start-up with no delay. This camera fills those needs. Indeed, I like it enough that I use it pretty much everywhere now - on hiking trips and quick snaps. Image quality is very good. Connectivity and functionality with my computer is as easy as it can get. Actually, my Nikon D-100 software is what I use to view my images. Even the cable is interchangeable.

Nice "party toy" to shoot some friends on party, disco etc. The "night shot" feature is usefull but the expore time is too long then. The image quality is quite OK outdoor. Indoor it has only about 50% AF accurancy. If the AF fails, it presets on the close distance(pity not the far distance). Extremely small - that's nice in that case. Problems: AF at low light conditions fails very often.

I first saw that U20 in a shop and I wasn't even thinking of buying any still camera(I'm a fan of DV-cameras...). I went back home and checked some user's comments and price level and then back to the shop. After a few hundred of pictures I think that I got just the camera I wanted - easy to use and carry and enough quality! Greetings from Finland and the price was 199 euros! Problems: No real problems. Recharger is quite slow, but 2 sets of batts help. Should have audio with video...

Great 2nd camera. I usually take pictures of our out of town trips with an Oly 720 uz, and pics I take usually come out nice. However, when I hand the camera over for someone to take a pic of me, it usually comes out less than good. Focusing and exposure is usually the problem...so I end up with one picture or two of myself...for the weekend trip, which isn't focused properly or with a bad exposure. With a tiny camera such as the Sony U20 which is simple to operate, I can now be assured I ...

When this camera first cam into the shop I thought to myself "Looks cool, shame about the picture quality" This was before i saw the picture quality however. For a 2MP camera it takes a supriseingly good image in poorly litconditions and in brightly lit sorroundings there is little blooming around sharp lines. Sure its got no zoom but look at the size. Its well easy to use and ideal for the clubber who wants to be able to embarrass there mates. The guy before mentioned to get the pentax optio ...

Come on Guys! It is for sure that the camera is not the best one on the market. But look at its size. For this size it is a very good camera. You can take it anywhere, anytime. It is this camera's purpose. If you want a good quality, spend more and get a better camera, that is bigger and bulky. There is one more option though; Check out the new Pentax Optio S. It is a credit card size machine that is 3.2 megapixels and has 3X optical zoom. It is the best deal right now on the market. If I ...
