This DSC-W800 is the third Sony Cybershot camera I've purchased. The first one lasted years with great results, but the second one (a DSC-W330) had to be sent back within months for developing a streaky line that ran through the screen. It was repaired by Sony at no cost, but then within a year was useless because the retractable lens stopped working. Now this DSC-W800 has developed the same sort of streak through the viewing screen and has been returned to Sony for repair - no word yet on the outcome, but to be honest, I can't recommend Sony Cybershot due to the unreliability, even though I have taken thousands of great pictures with Sony cameras. I just bought a new GE X400 today, which does not have the retracting lens and I'm hopeful this will be my last camera purchase for while. Fingers crossed ...

A very nice replacement camera.

By 

from Montreal, QC, Canada

Comments about Sony Silver Cyber-Shot 20.1 Megapixel Compact Digital Camera:

A nice replacement camera to my old Kodak MD863 that I have put through use when making my vlogs. The only problem which is minor one is that I could find is that I cannot download the files directly on my Ubuntu Studio workstation. I have to go through downloading the video through a windows 7 based computer then transfer it over via USB. My older Kodak MD863 which was able to do so without a problem. And that one they had mentioned was for windows and Mac only. I had no problem with my older digital camera. It's ashame that this one couldn't be done with this model here. as well.

Nice little camera

By 

from 65747

Comments about Sony Silver Cyber-Shot 20.1 Megapixel Compact Digital Camera:

Bought this little Sony point and shoot to take on vacation to Ireland. It worked flawlessly. I really enjoyed that it fit in my pocket and that it is extremely lightweight. I previously carried my Canon on all trips and it was constantly in the way when not in use. Does it take as good photos as my Canon, no, but the pictures are good enough for vacation pictures.

just ok

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, USA

Comments about Sony Silver Cyber-Shot 20.1 Megapixel Compact Digital Camera:

My cell phone has the same specs and is much better. I only bought the camera because I figured it would be better than my cell. I took both on trip and my cell pics were far better. Also, when creating videos the camera creates additional support files for each video which must be kept with the video for it to play. yuck.

Worst quality in a photo I have ever seen. Not worth the price. It's more like a Kodak camera, not Sony.
