Good, but not Great!

Its a pretty decent digital camera, I don't think its worth the retail $100 retail price but if you get it for $70 or less then you found yourself a good deal. The retail price is because of the brand name, the camera itself is pretty good but not really all that advance from other, lesser known digital cameras.

~PROs~
-You can choose which Megapixel quality pictures you want to take. 16:9/2MP (view on HDTV), 16:9/9MP (view on HDTV & print up 11x17"), 4:3/VGA (small image size for email attachments), 4:3/5MP (4x6" up to 8x10"), 4:3/8MP (11x17"), 4:3/12MP HIGHEST QUALITY (13x19")(Note: Higher quality pictures take up more space on your SD card, a 12MP image would take about 5 MB of space where as a 5MP image would take 2 MB of space)
-You can also choose which quality of videos you want to take, VGA quality for view on a TV or QVGA for smaller size for email attachments.
-Based on what quality pictures or videos you want to take, the camera estimates how much space is left in your SD card to let you know how many more pictures you can take or how much time remaining to take videos before the SD card gets full. (this feature is always on so you will always know how much space is left)
-You can create/edit/customize/delete folders straight from the camera so you can organize your pictures/videos in specific folders without having to use a computer.
-Slide show function to view images on camera.
-Very light weight camera. (lighter than most cellphones)
-Easy to use, to make it even more user friendly there is an option to go to 'Easy Mode' which makes the process of using the camera less complicated and makes the fonts bigger.
-High quality videos.
-Has a neat function which makes the camera take pictures automatically when it recognizes a smile on someones face. (you can change the sensitivity of smile or turn off this feature if you don't want it)
-You can switch video outputs from NTSC or PAL
-Red eye reduction when using flash
-Basic Power saver options
-You have the option to take burst shots to take continuous pictures while shutter button is held.
-Various Scene Selections for outdoor or indoor picture taking, choose which is best for background.

~Cons~
-While cycling through pictures there is a very short lag showing a blurry image before adjusting to shown in high quality on the LCD screen. (it does this when going through every single image, very annoying)
-Does not have the small lens on the back to manually look through to take pictures, so if you break the LCD screen then the camera will be of no use anymore.
-If your SD card has video's taken from another brand name digital camera, you won't be able to view them in the Sony Cybershot LCD screen, instead the camera just shows a blue screen either telling 'File error' or just won't recognize the files and says 'No File'. (you can still see pictures taken from another digital camera on the Cybershot without any problems... just not videos)

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W310 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera is a fair choice

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The camera has the feature-set satisfying my daughter's (23) demanding requirements.
The MP resolution is fair enough for normal use, higher resolution models' costs are more than proportionally higher.
Its physical size is conveniently small to carry in a woman's purse.
Zoom range enables creative composition.
Battery life is good.
Accessories (data cable, memory card) are compatible with my existing SONY Handycam's items.

I Love my Sony W310

I love this little point and shoot camera, because it is one of the top of line cameras in the sony line. I have a fetish for camera, and have tried different manufacturers but always seem to come back to Sony. So, I successively move from one model to a new model with newer and better features. Great everyday camera that packs a wallup of Super features.

Great Handy Small & Inexpensive Camera That Takes Good Quality Pics

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is a very easy camera to use and carry around, with a small compact wall charger and car charger. It charges quickly. My hubby bought this for me because he has one just like it and it's great for travel. I have trouble with his camera in accidently pushing a button on the right side triggering the video feature, but the button on this camera is tighter so I haven't had that problem with mine. He's been carrying his around for 2 years with no problem. Batteries are cheap, about $8, and a good new battery seems to hold a charge very well. I recently got him a couple new batteries, so they seem to last about 2 years with lots of use. I don't like a lot of complicated features--just a point and click, and that's pretty much what this is.
