Generally soft and somewhat noisy photos at full size.

There is nothing I dislike. I absolutely like the camera and love it for the simplicity and the great features it offers. I have another digital camera by Canon, a SD990is, it was twice as much and I've done great research on purchasing that as my first digital camera about last year or so and it was close to something I can't afford now and don't need in the mean time [a SLR camera].
So with this camera, I have to worry just a bit less carrying it around because of the convenience of it. It is a simple and powerful point-and-shoot camera that is built in with smart features. Intelligent actually, and it's HD Video quality is real impressive except for the fact when zooming in while recording, it cuts off some of the audio. After all, it is a digital camera, that's it's purpose.
I did follow along with the DSC series and after borrowing my cousins DSC-W350 camera, I said okay I knew I should have purchased this as a second camera to carry around with superb convenience and great qualitative features and picture taking; I've always wanted another camera to snapshot quick moments instead of doing my professional work with my Canon SD990is and here it is with my Sony DSC-350. Great Price too, thanks once again!
This is a really great little point and shoot camera. Your bang for the buck - size - to - picture - quality ratio is better than decent. The W350 is really tiny, yet I've gotten hundreds of professional quality underwater photos (I also have the marine pack for this camera). As far as portraits, macro, and still photos, the 14.1 megapixels packs a great punch. The different modes really come in handy (and I do use them) for different scenes, lighting, etc. The panoramic mode is a handy little feature, but takes a bit of practice to perfect. There is also a burst mode which I don't use too often, but the few times I have it's produced some really cool results. Another great feature is that it actually zooms while in video mode, a not so common feature in point and shoots.
As for the cons, the flash is relatively weak, especially under water (common in a lot of Sony models). I find that my greatest annoyances with this camera are that it can take a while for the focus to hone in on the subject (thus, I find myself taking anywhere from 2-4 picture of the same thing, "just to be sure"), and that the reset time between pictures kind of lags too.
All in all, this is a pretty diesel little camera for the price (if you can find it online, I wouldn't pay more than $180).
Well this camera was reviewed on cnet’s video reviews with top honors, and very much lives up to my expectations, actually quite beyond my expectations in this category of Ultra-Compact pocket cameras. It pretty much blew me away. I've owned many many cameras, and most recently the Sony dsc-t50 which we used to cover many family events with our child including sports hobbys, as well as business photos that were used for internet marketing of real estate, and marketing of events/business conference setups. The dsc-t50 always worked for these purposes very very well, now enter the dsc-w350, smaller, lighter, better resolution and features, excellent video at 30 frames per second, including the ability to zoom in/zoom out while shooting video which not all units in this category can do. This camera can also shoot High Definition HD Video Resolution 720p, which is just amazing in this size and category. You cannot go wrong with this camera. The Easy setting is great for my wife, just point and shoot, for me I like having the option of setting the exposure / focus settings depending on the situation. The 28mm wide angle lens allows for fun “self and friends” photos when you hold the camera yourself, and the image stabilization is top shelf. This was cnet’s top pick for the Nov. 2010 digital cameras in the ultra-compact category. There are a couple of other digital camera review sites that have reviewed this camera, and one of the comparison charts that was important to me was specific to shutter lag, or shutter delay, comparing this camera and many many others. Shutter lag is the time it takes the camera to actually take the photo after you've pressed the shutter button, non-flash photos, and this camera is ultra-fast, ranked 13 with .25 seconds, which for me this is virtually no delay at all. When we’re taking pictures of skiing/snowboard tricks or soccer this works unbelievably well. The dsc-w350 was very close to the top unit in this particular comparison chart, coming close to the Sony DSC-tx10 with .15 second delay. For me, having had a touch screen camera like the dsc-t50 I believe getting around the options is faster and more intuitive without the touch feature, so the expense of jumping to the dsc-tx10 which features touch screen didn’t make sense for me. I will give this camera top marks in all respects in it’s ultra-compact or sub-compact categories for what it’s set out to do, which is a point and shoot camera with nearly beyond excellent photos.
10/2012 BRIEF UPDATE
1 year and 2 months - London, Miami, Minneapolis, N.Y., SoCal, and everywhere in between still amazing ! Thank you Sony
I bought this camera to replace a sony camera that I lost.
This camera takes good pictures is light weight and easy to use. I disappointed the life the battery. I did buy this
camera used on ebay so I don't know if that effected the life of the battery.(it is rechargable)I have not used the panoramic feature yet. I don't know if it is necessary.
I would recommend this camera because there is vaule with the price of it.
I would also like to recommend the DSC-w330 because of the wonderful pictures!
Very satisfied with the camera. A camera that's super easy to use and makes great photos. Sony delivers on price, quality, features, and design.
