It was my first digital camera. I´ve had this camera for 14 months and I was very satisfied with it for my amateur and learning shots. Is a good digital camera. The best is the 10x zoom. The floppy adapter with memory stick is very good and it decreases the annoying noise when read/write a diskette. But with the memory stick floppy adapter is very slow for me. Now, I just trade ir for a new Nikon Coolpix 995 to improve quality pictures. I´ll be lacking the 10x zoom. Problems: It comsumes a ...

This is my second digital camera, after graduating from a point-and-shoot ) 0.3 MP cheapie. I like the 10x optical zoom, as it allows me to capture the unguarded moments of my subjects. Photo quality is good, but I wish Sony included a fil size option of about 1.4 MB, or 1 photo per disk, never mind the probable slow write time. The finest compression available (about 330 KB size) doesn't do justice to the 1.92 Mpixel CCD - a lot of artifacting emerge when the photos are enlarged. In my ...

The image stabilization is one of the best features. Going on a trip and leaving the tripod at home is a very good idea. The right handed shoot and zoom controls are in the right place. The 10 times optical zoom is another strong selling point but a close up ability that goes down to the dust on a protective lens is something to see. On the picture side, it's a lot of bad news: Take a piece of white paper and set your white balance on it. Now crumple it up, straighten it out again, to get ...

I'm impressed with the quality of the pictures. Problems: Terrible lag time in taking a picture with a Smart chip. Up to seven seconds. Terrible lag time from when you press on the picture button and it takes the picture. At least .5 seconds. If you are trying to capture a moment, it's almost impossible. I've tried to contact Sony on other cameras consering lag time etc. But no body at Sony seems to know anything. Would like to move up, but will not buy anymore pig-in-the-poke items.

Well I sold this on EBay after using it a few times. Sure it takes fantastic pictures at perfect settings but I brought it to a party, and boy did it fail in every aspect. The flash does a HORRIBLE job, the camera does an even worse job autofocusing in low light. Not to mention that you can't see a THING through either the view finder or the display in lower light settings. Problems: What made me sell it were 1) The unreal amounts of time it took to record pictures onto the floppy adaptor. ...

Have owned the 95 for 4 months, shooting over 1,000 pics in that time. Traded from 71 and 81 (occasional availability). Ease of use is about normal, the 5-way control button (4 arrows plus middle to confirm) is not my favorite, but it reduces clutter on the camera. Otherwise, the function controls are about average. AE features and white balance move this camera into a higher class of unit, adding versatility and power that a novice point-and-shoot user may not initially take advantage of, ...
