This camera is real nice, best one I have ever owned. However I have not found batteries that seem to last for it. I do not get as many pictures as desired before the batteries die. But love the picture quality I do get from this camera. I have taken some amazing pictures of my kids with this camera, almost better than school pictures! I really love this camera just wish the battery life was better. Image Quality Absolutely love the picture quality I get from my Sony Cyber Shot!! However not impressed with the video quality. Tried to video an awards ceremony at my children's school and it turned out horrible. I was sad that it was such a bad video, I could not even recognize my own kids in it. Performance Performance gives me no problems, I love how well it works! Ease of Use It was a little complicated at first, but I soon figured everything out. Durability Have not had any durability problems so far. Battery Life Not at all impressed with the battery life. Portability Love it! Small enough to carry yet takes amazing pictures.
