This camera matches my previous one (Sony DSC-WX9) almost neck-and-neck in every feature, and costed a lot less. I really don't notice any difference. It's amazing for a point-and-shoot camera, and I have two magnetic lenses (a macro 0.45x and a fish-eye 0.38x) with the little stick-on magnetic rings, allowing for a much wider range of imagery and focus options.

The screen is also very responsive, especially when recording video; no screen lag. Great screen quality, too. It doesn't have an old-school viewfinder, if you care about that (I don't). It has the same limited zoom of any point-and-shoot camera, easily remedied with a stick-on telephoto lens. Camera is very compact for such high quality. Loving it so far.

I bought this camera for my cousin for his birthday. The size of the camera is perfect fit in your hands, but the screen is very small. The OS in the camera makes the camera seems fairly cheap. If you had ever had any type of Cybershot, you will see the big difference between this one and the one you have had prior.

The 3D features are awesome, though you have to have a 3D computer or TV in order to play it properly. You cannot display 3D on the camera, so realistically, it's kind of pointless. The quality is alright, basic camera functions. Other than that, I would recommend this camera.

It's about a 3 1/2 out of 5.

I have a Canon 60D. But i needed a new câmara to take with me in my trip to carry it into my pocket. Easy and smart! But remember this is not a professional equipment.

    Comments about Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 Digital Camera (Silver):

    This is a really beutiful camera, easy to use.

    you can take excellent photos, no matter the distance, i though that the digital was of 10x but i was surprised when i saw that it can reach up to 20x and i got more surprised about the pictures you can take at that distance.

    While you are recording you can take up to 10 pictures without stop the record. Another thing i liked a lot was when you use the 10fps mode you can see the 10 frames like continuously turnig around the camera from side to side (you'll see like a small video captured in 10 photos).

    In a few words i'm really happy with this product. I recomend to anybody who loves takes photos and videos in good quality.

        Comments about Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 Digital Camera (Silver):

        For the exceptional value, this is an excellent camera! The picture quality is A+, as well as the flash range.
        Fingers do not get in the way of the flash, like comparable Canons do.
        It can easily fit into a jeans pocket.

        Cons:
        It can feel a bit too small, especially someone with larger fingers.
        There may be too many shooting modes for those wanting an easy "Auto-and-go".
        It is, and feels, plasticky. Those used to the metal body construction of Canons will defintiely notice.

            I'm pleased with the CyberShot, so far. Pics are clear, features are rich, and the learning curve is easy. It's small enough for a shirt pocket, but I went ahead and got a small case and a 16G SD card. I expect to use this camera for years to come.

                    I carry it in my jacket "cigarette" pocket or my pants pocket whenever I am not carrying my large SLR rig (business days, dinners, beaches, boats, dog walks, etc.). It is pleasant to carry, intuitive to use, and has plenty of options beyond the basics. I am surprised that my big hands can handle the controls so easily. The results are beyond my expectations, and Photoshop Elements can make up for any deficits.

                    I am an artist, who loves to shoot pictures of people, landscapes, events, family, friends... so I take LOTS of fotos! One of the great things about the Cyber-shot DSC-WX50, is the speed and soundlessness with which you shoot. It takes wonderful fotos in artificial, low and night light, but sometimes looses dtail and is washed out in full sunlight.

                          Great camera, easy to use, super low weight, battary holds for like 2-4 days of use.
                          Interesting and good functions, e.g. close up photo, low light feature, takes good photos in very low light.
                          Only the zoom is relatively low, X5 only

                            Very fast, even when using flash.
                            Great low light performance.
                            Very small, yet comfortable to use.
                            Has auto and auto+ (a bit slower but better results)

                            One thing to consider is that you need to charge battery while in camera, or have to buy additional external battery charger

                              I was amazed how easy (use iPhoto where all the work is done, just click) and fun (try illustrations and water painting) it is to take great pictures. They are so good, I give them as gifts. The colors and details are wonderful and I can,t wait to play around with it.

                              This product takes the best pictures in low light, it's easy to use, and it's very light and compact so carrying it around is no trouble at all. It's also the best price for what you're getting. It does have a short battery life, but if you get an extra battery and keep it with you it's no problem.
