I received this Sony Cybershot W220 Digital Camera as a Christmas gift from my honey about three or four years ago. He knew I wanted a digital camera; but I didn't have any idea what type. I was pleasantly surprised with his selection of the Sony Cybershot. It is so sleek looking and very easy to carry around. I did a lot of experimenting at first, just to get an idea of what all the different settings were for and how to use them. My favorite feature is the zoom. Great when on vacation! Once I got familiar with all the features and settings, I had no problem snapping great pictures. The pictures turn out so clear and the colors absolutely beautiful. The only complaint I have with this Sony Cybershot camera is with the battery life. The battery doesn't seem to hold the charge as long as I feel it should. However, it could just be me and the way I use the camera for hours at a time. I've learned to charge the battery before planning to use it, especially if it's been a while since the last use. Other than that, love my Sony Cybershot camera!
