I haven't heard much about it and would like to know what its users have to say about it.

Hi Shatsi

It was only a week ago that I was looking at the Sony W series, namely the W-70 and W-100.

I went for the W-100 over the W-50, W-70 for the better features,

1. 1/1.8" sensor vs 1/2.5"

2. 8 Mpixels vs 7.1

3. 7 element lens vs 6

4. Min shutter 30 sec vs 2 sec

5. Has manual

For someone that just wants a camera as a straight P&S without these extra features the W-30,50 and 70should be fine as would anyone of the Canon or Panasoniccompacts.

Good luck whatever you choose.

Regards Wirraway

In a sense of balance, be advised the www.pricegrabber.com has the very same user reviews as ell.

Shatsi-

For a less than $200.00 digital camera, the Sony W-50 represents a real value. The camera has many, many happy users. It also has a higher that normal ISO range, making it excellent for flash shots, night shots and low light level shooting.
