Customer Reviews of Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 18.2 Megapixel 3D Panorama Compact Camera - Silver
Takes great pictures, but....3/26/2013
I am impressed with the features and photos with this camera. However, I was carrying around in my pocket while on vacation (2 weeks after getting the camera) and when I took it out on the second day of the trip the right half of the screen had gone black and would no longer work. Seller replaced with out a problem and I am one week into the new camera - so far no problems
Excellent pocket camera3/25/2013
Got this camera as a convenient pocket camera to travel with. It does the job with great resolution and is easy to shoot.
Not so friendly video files.3/8/2013
This camera creates a video file that is left behind when you import your 'pictures' into iPhoto. You have to go thru another process, and find your own way store and catalog your video files. All of my other cameras have just 'worked' with iPhoto.
I have a DSLR camera for serious shooting, but there are times when I would like to have a pocket-size camera. This WX150 is very packed with a lot of nice features and a 10x optical zoom in a very small body. Panorama mode works in both horizontal and vertical directions. The partial color in "picture effect" is pretty cool too. 18 megapixels is for 4:3 format. The camera does not have 3:2 format. If (manually) crop down to 3:2, the resolution would be 16 megapixels.
