Really like this one, it is so thin that it is like a natural extension of the hand, and the images most of the time look great. It stays with me wherever I go.

As with all cameras so far, there are always compromises. Images are always soft. In bright shade it will pick ISO 800, which is crap as mentioned in the review. If I lower the ISO to avoid the noise, it will lower the shutter speed resulting in possible camera shake. The aperture is always stuck in f3.3 on wide angle, and cannot be changed. As with all cameras with small sensors, it routinely has a blue cast in the shadows, and it always blows out the highlights in strong daylight; but it never blocks the shadows (in iAuto).

I am looking to buy point and shoot camera with decent zoom and picture quality and faster shoo to shoot time. I am thinking about Sony WX200 and Canon Ixus 255HS, but it is hard to find a good review on Sony. When browsing on internet I foud out that this Sony is in fact almost copy-paste of discontinued WX100 (which didn’t last long on the market, for whatever reason) and I am a little bit puzzled with your rating system in terms of evaluating ease of use and image quality of those two cameras in 8 months interval between two revies since they share the same menu and same processor and older wx100 gets 4 points for ease of use and image quality and wx200 gets 3,5 from the same reviewer???

Have had this camera for almost a year. It has been ideal for carrying on my motorbike rides. I love the photos.
Just two issues I have. 1;The zoom function is too fast. It is hard to stop the zoom precisely where you want it. 2;The panorama mode is very difficult to operate. Sweeping the camera has to be very smooth, a fraction to fast, slow, up/down and it cuts out recording.
Battery lid is very flimsy. I find it easier to take the card out when transferring photos than to navigate the sony software via the usb cord.

Just bought this camera, so not sure of all the functions.
Which setting do I use to take photos through glass?
If I was on a bus, etc.
