The Sony CyberShot DSC-W1 camera is not user friendly at all, there is nothing worse when you have taken a fantastic picture of the kids or something knowing that you will never recapture that moment and then when you get home and load the pictures onto your pc they came out to dark, or to blurry, or red eye.. I just want a good quality simple to use camera where i dont have to think about the settings.. (read more)

I have owned several digital cameras, my last being a Casio QV3000 with 340meg microdrive.
I looked at quite a few 5meg cameras including the Casio QVR51, Sony V1, Canon ixus500. I eventually settled for the Sony W1, the large screen and AA battery useage tipped the scales in its favour (I also got it from a national company who's shop was closing down, so got it at a great price). The first thing I did was get a 256meg pro memory stick, as the 32meg that comes with it is put in as a token... (read more)
