Comments about Cyber-Shot DSC-W620 Digital Camera (Red):

I bought the Sony Cyber-Shot specifically for the panoramic feature. It's easy & amazing in its capacity to create a near-360-degree shot immediately. The photographer needs to be steady - but not perfect. Sometimes it takes 2-3 times for me to get the pano right, but I assume I'll get better at it with practice. The pano shot in the view screen is too tiny to see details of the shot on site, but it shows up nicely when I transfer the photos to my computer monitor.

    Comments about Cyber-Shot DSC-W620 Digital Camera (Red):

    Night images are terrible.
    On-Off button can easily be pushed while the camera is in a pouch and drain the battery.
    Flash is too bright and make faces too white.

    Comments about Cyber-Shot DSC-W620 Digital Camera (Silver):

    I took this camera on a trip out west and the best pictures were those of scenic views/outside with natural lighting. The camera is very easy to use and has a great panoramic option to capture more scenic photos. The cons to this camera is that it does not peform very well in low lighting or at night time. It seems like it doesn't know when to use flash for dusk/night settings. The image stabalization feature is sometimes not the best. Would recommend for every day, casual use.

    I loved how lightweight it was. The stabilization feature keeps shots focused. Takes digital pictures that some think came from a high end camera.

      Comments about Cyber-Shot DSC-W620 Digital Camera (Red):

      This is a replacement for a 4 year old cyber-shot that my wife dropped in the sand and the zoom no longer functioned properly. This new model is thinner, lighter, has more features and twice the megapixels of her old camera. So far she is very satisfied with the replacement.
