Image stabilization is decent as expected from Sony and video is decent at 30 fps on 720p, but doesn't adjust focus as fast as I would have liked for some scenes. I suggest using a class 10 card in it for smooth video and expect it to fill up fast if you're using it at maximum settings/resolution. The flash is ok, though I'd prefer to have good lighting anyway to get natural shot and have a real sense of the environment although depending on your angle, it will seem to get a dark shot if the light source is behind the object or person you're shooting, but it does compensate a little.
If you're a point a click person I suggest you leave settings on auto and just go with it. The camera does a great job of scene recognition and adjusts to suit and as we all know, digital zoom is a waste of time, so don't think you'll get a high quality pic at a long distance as their cameras tend to pixelate images when using digital zoom . Anything within 30 feet is sharp, after that you start having to really work for that quality image. Close-ups are good and most are clean. Some colours look forced, on some plants very saturated on some deep colours (bright coloured ones were fine), and some other stuff I mentioned above are better on other cameras within the price range although not thrown together like on this model. Don't expect great low light pics but some are passable depending on the light available.
So it is worth a buy? In my opinion yes, as long as you don't expect too much for a budget price and aren't going to be snapping underwater pics and video (don't get it wet, and if you do, switch off, remove batteries and memory card and dry immediately and thoroughly), It's a bit smooth to touch and does feel sometimes like it'll fall out your hand, but is pretty comfortable otherwise and works well. So as a budget camera, you could do worse!
I really endorse Sony Cyber-shot because of the ergonomics of the camera. I one time switched to Nikon and did not like how had to adjust the different modes through a menu and not a hard button on the camera you can slide up and down to change. You can easily change between photo, panoramic and movie modes on the Cyber-shot. The Nikon didn't take as good quality of the photos as the Sony. This camera takes beautiful photos. I have enlarged the prints to 11x14 and framed them in 16x20 frames in my office. Customers come in and marvel at the beauty of the photo and ask where I took the picture and what camera was used. I tell them it was just a simple point and shoot digital camera and they cannot believe it. The zoom on this camera is a 10x optical zoom. Most cameras are just 5x or 8x, but this one is 10x. I don't zoom often but it is a good zoom.
The size of the camera is perfect for every occasion. I take this camera on all of my vacations and it documents my memories. It easily fits in my pocket during travel or I will use the strap to put around my wrist.
Definitely recommend and will definitely be a repeat customer to Sony Cyber-shot for the future.
