This camera has been a very good addition for my traveling and sight seeing adventures. Image Quality This has settings for photos that can easily be developed into amazingly clear images. Performance I have had great performance out of this camera and it is well suited to slip in a purse or bag and carry along for that quick image you want to capture. Ease of Use Settings on this camera are fairly easy to understand and can be easily adjusted. Durability There have been no issues with the durability of the Sony cyber-shot camera. I have had no problems with it at all. Battery Life I have to keep an extra battery in my case for those extended times I am away from home. The battery charger takes some time to charge the battery. Portability Small enough to carry around with no problems. I like it for travel even though I have a more expensive camera that takes wonderful photos, this one is so easy to take along that it is my go-to favorite.
