Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 97 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Small but perfect I needed a small camera to put in my handbag for a trip abroad. I didn't want to spend much but I still wanted a good quality camera .After a long research I found this lovely Sony and I cannot be happier! The pictures are great and it is very easy to use! Very happy with it :-) 22 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So easy to use. I bought this for my husband because he found a heavier camera was difficult for his fingers. Has taken some excellent little photos since and is happy with it. 14 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of options I made a mistake buying the upmarket model with a bigger sensor - it was too heavy and bulky - so I changed it for this little compact model which is perfect and does all the things I want to do - snap the grandchildren and our cat and outings. Always handy and never a burden. The zoom length is not as good as some, but I'm really pleased with this little Sony. 09 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great light weight camera Brought it for the wifi as we are traveling Took a little time to work out how to transfer phone to iPad Good photos love it 09 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing zoom This camera can zoom in on frolicking children and dogs at a hundred metres and capture every hair on the dog. 07 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by smallest camera and good quality I bought this camera to carry in my handbag for a holiday in Holland. Despite it’s size it is brilliant for close up photos and landscape and very easy to use. 03 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good compromise I was looking for the smallest well featured camera in the mid-price band. This ticked most of the boxes I wanted and received decent professional reviews. It hasn't been used to a large extent but I have been pleased with it so far. The only negative is how slippy it is to grip so make sure you use the wrist band. 29 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money Still early days with this camera however quality of photos excellent and a mass of features 28 March 2016
