SUPER AWESOME CAMERA !!! GO FOR IT BLINDLY !!!!
06 Dec 2012 By S. K. On flipkart.com
This is one of the best cameras in this price range-no other manufacturer comes even close.I have used this camera for 2 months, these are my observations-----
1)It has a sony bsi cmos sensor+ awesome sony g lens-the photos and videos are simply great-clarity and color reproduction is just fantastic. I am an average camera user, this camera was meant for someone like me who doesn't know very much about cameras n photography but uses it for important occasions, celebrations, events like birthdays, picnics etc. you just need to press the shutter button-no worries at all, it is meant for novices like me.
2)The camera focuses like a pro(pic and video) -very fast and accurate, the time between 2 consecutive shots is very minimal (about 1 sec-I am using class 10 sd card) so you can keep clicking and you wont miss any special moment of your small child as the camera responds and focuses very fast.
3) Video is great and sharp-avchd and mp4 formats in 1080 p quality ,the mic picks up sound very nicely.
4)Camera connects to pc very easily no issues extremely easy to download my pics n vids to the computer.
5)Low light performance is pretty good because of the special HDR mode, taking crisp close up macro pics is also possible, image stabilization is awesome for pics n vids. 10 x optical zoom is great and 40 x digital zoom beyond that surprisingly maintains A LOT OF clarity-you can zoom even in video mode.
6)The flash is pretty decent but some special modes like intelligent auto plus dont really require a flash to take a good picture, the camera automatically takes 2-3 quick consecutive snaps and joins them to make one sharp & clear composite picture-so YOU DON'T NEED TO KEEP USING THE FLASH WHILE TAKING PICS OF OTHERS LIKE SMALL CHILDREN N IRRITATE THEIR DELICATE EYES WITH THE HARSH FLASH.
Finally, I dont use panorama mode a lot but it really is effortless.This camera is so awesome, for some documents or newspaper clippings or business cards etc, i dont use a scanner to store it, I simply click an easy, sharp n precise picture with this camera to store the data.
I can keep going on and on but i will finish here by saying this beautiful gem of a camera has no issues at all and is better than any canon , nikon or samsung at this price, and i would suggest that you guys go for this without any worries whatsoever if you plan to buy this as your family camera & if you want to leave all the setting headaches & technicalities & tough decision making of taking good pics & vids to your camera-this camera will never disappoint.

Excellent Camera Zoom, Clarity, Handy & good for low light photography
29 Jul 2012 By Harish On flipkart.com
Why I bought this camera?
1) Zoom- 10X Zoom, 40x Digital Zoom (up to 20x clear zoom) and 18.2 MP
2) Clarity- Superb and many options/scene selections/shoot modes
3) Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor - offers great clarity in low light photography (very less do you need to use flash)
4) Handy- Fits your pocket, you can take this anywhere you go and it wont bothers you.
5) The various modes will help us to get excellent picture clarity even if the external conditions are not suitable
1.) Price is more because of Exmor R CMOS, but really worth it if you don't want to miss a beautiful moment at night/low light conditions.
2.) When you use the special modes, it takes few seconds for the final picture to get displayed, we may think quick shots are not possible, but the camera has various continuous shot options which can help you capture all moments without even missing any. Also normal mode is available which delivers instant picture.
3.) There is a model which offers 10x Zoom and 16.1 MP at a lower price but does not have Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor and some other features this camera has.
This camera has many other features; you can read it in the additional information section.
I am very much satisfied with this camera and the picture it delivers. Thanks to Sony!!!
