"I take it when I travel."

I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. The battery life is outstanding, lasted her whole two week trip with moderate use. She squeals in excitement every time I open Snapchat and let her take pictures with me. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap.

"I like the camera, but."

10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Some people even claim that the Sony rivals medium format quality. Looks amazing and excited to try it. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. I bought this Sony Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February.

Sony DSCRX100M3/B Final Thoughts

"Really great camera."

I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. A great camera for the money and my needs! After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. This camera far exceeded my expectations. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent.

I am so impressed with this Sony ! No other Sony Point & Shoot Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this Sony .

"Go with the Sony."

Let me say from the start, I really like Sony. Some reviewers have problems with clarity, but I certainly do not. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close. I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me.

"It looked good."

After over 10,000 pictures, my Sony operates perfectly in every aspect. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. I can't wait to try it out at the zoo. Where this Sony really shines though is the video recording oddly enough.

"Spectacular product!"

So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. Color and white balance is generally good.
