Do You Own a Sony Camera?

By May 14, 2014

Follow me on:

If you recently received a Sony camera -- or if you've owned one for quite a while -- please consider sharing your experiences with that camera through a "user review" of a Sony camera.

Although I have a chance to review quite a large number of cameras, I don't have the time or resources to review every Sony camera that's manufactured, so I'm hoping those of you reading this site can post your thoughts on cameras you own, which will help all of the site's readers as they're trying to find great cameras to purchase. Good experiences and bad experiences are both welcomed.

Just click the link below to enter your camera's information, which should require only 3-5 minutes. And, if you own a non-Sony camera, you can find user review forms for other models on the Camera Reviews page when you scroll down.

My wife and I each own a SONY Cyber-shot DSC-W230 and are extremely satisfied with their functions, and the resolution of their Carl Zeiss lenses. Their Movie-mode is outstanding.

For more serious work I have a SONY DSC-F717, again with Carl Zeiss lens; and my wife has a SONY DSLR A-200 with two Sony zooms, but we suspect that their resolutions is somewhat softer than the Zeiss.

I have a SONY HandyCam DCR-DVD905 video camera, with Carl Zeiss lens and am eminently satisfied with both its function and, quality, and the convenience of it producing 3″ DVDs which can be immediately played in any device recognising *.VOB files.

We are retired folk with a keen interest in photography, mix a lot with others of the same interests and are happy to stick with SONY.

Thanks for the note! It sounds like you have a lot of first-hand experience with Sony cameras. If you wouldn’t mind, submit some of your experiences with those cameras at the Sony Camera User Review form:
That will give readers of the site the benefit of your first-hand experience!

I own 2 sony hdrcx-150 HD camcorders and they are the best I have ever used. I am an experienced videographer and these two cameras are the best.

I bought a Sony DSC-W370 to replace a 5yo damaged Canon IXUS – at its best the new camera is a capable unit – but in low light conditions it is quite disappointing with poor picture quality and long delay between shots – I appreciate that the Canon was from a more expensive part of the price scale but it was a better camera, despite its age

I purchased my first digital camera, the Sony a100, as I found out I could use my Minolta Maxxum lenses. It was an initial savings, but I have not been impressed by Sony since. It has jammed on me in critical moments, weddings, and has since been reduced to a back up camera.

I have owned several Sony cameras and the latest and most favorite of them all is a Sony NEX 5 camera which has all the bells and whistles of a large camera in a handy pocket size version. It takes stunning pictures in moonlight, match stick, or bright sunny day at the beach. I am still learning some of the nuances and enjoying it a lot. Even after an accident in one of our trips, the case broke, but the camera still worked with a scotch tape to hold the battery. Sony replaced it with a new one. I will recommend it to every one.

I own an a580 dSLR. It is a great camera. It has taken some great pics.
It has 16.2 megapixels with an APS-C sensor. It takes all A-mount lens, even some of the older Minolta lens. It has great Sony color. There is rather low noise at the higher ISO settings. It shoots in raw and jpeg. The price is very affordable. Its the price of lens that gets you. If you want a dSLR but not sure if you really will like one or which one to get, give this one a try. You can sink thousands of dollars into a camera and lens and then decide you should have gotten something else. You can spend far less than that to find exactly what you will need. One problem is Sony does not produce this camera anymore. So you will have to look on Ebay or other sites to find one. But for the price you will pay and the quality of pictures you get, it is hard to beat.

I agree that many times slightly older cameras can provide great photography results at a much lower starting price … as you said, as long as you can find them, that is. Thanks for sharing your tips!

I have a Cybershot DSC-HX100V that is good, BUT…. Well, I had just started freelance writing for a magazine and I was covering concerts and musicians. I thought I would give photography a go.

I got a bargain deal from Dell so I bought it. I should have researched more. It takes great pics and video, even HD/3D, but you are stuck with the lense you get.

I managed to get some great photos, made the cover twice, but I wish I could afford a better camera. The Cybershot DSC-HX100V is great for a beginner, but if you are trying to work, look elsewhere.

I have Sony DSC-WX300. It is a good point-and-shoot camera. It is very small and quick, and has 20x zoom, good photo and great video quality, good battery, optical stabilization, wi-fi. I always hold it in my bag, it good for home, for party, for vlogging, for any accidental photos. In fact, it’s very good replacement and advancement for smartphone’s camera for me :-) . If you looking for a small but good camera, pay your attention on WX300.
