Excellent Camera

Pros: Feature packed.
Takes great pictures.
Large LCD.
Very easy to use.
Turns on quickley.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a replacement for a Sony DSC-P93 that is virtualy the same feature wise.
This camera has a larger LCD and a smaller overall size. Plus it has 32 megs of memory built in.
As always you can't beat NewEgg for price and service. I'm a loyal customer.

Replacement of Defective Sony

Comments: After receiving first Sony digital camera, we discovered it was defective. First contacted Sony (assuming operator error), then Newegg. Newegg got me the RMA within 2 hours of contact and replaced the camera with a 1 day turnaround at Newegg! Great service! You find out how a vendor really treats customers when there's a problem. Newegg is on my honor roll! Thanks very much!
