A nicely detailed review. Impressive high-ISO performance from the camera, unfortunately the rest of it is not quite top level. And not cheap either.

But this could be a collector's item (like Fujifilm F31fd) in a few years time.

This review is not entirely fair. I also have the much heavier, chunkier canon g9, which has been highly praised, and the little w300 performs as well or better than the g9 except perhaps in bright sunlight. In low light/high izo conditions the g9 is completely useless, but the little sony produces tolerable images.

This is one of the best models for non professional using. I have one, it's perfect!
