the most effective smallest camera

 

2 MP camera. I wished SONY would continue to make these tiny practical cameras. Anyhow, I highly recommend it and use it more than I use my other cameras(Canon SD200, Canon Digital Rebel 6.3MP, Nikon Coolpix 990, and Nikon Coolpix 3100) Pros: Small,...

First, let me tell you a little about my previous experience because after reading the reviews I can see there's people on here who's owned a dozen digital cameras and others where this is their first and their opinions are very different. This ...

I love this little camera

 

I bought a Cybershot U30 because it was small and on sale. However, I've come to really love it. Though it lacks a zoom and the megapixel count isn't high, it's tiny, well designed and takes high quality pictures. The colors in pictures are accurate: ...

Great picture quality, tiny size, easy interface, takes standard batteries, instant startup

Focus sometimes poor (in low-light), blurry pics in low-light (without flash), no zoom, no sound

Perfect travel camera!

 

The Sony DSC-U30 is my travel camera. It may not give me as much control over my images, or give me 4 megapixel images, but I can't imagine going anywhere without it. The biggest advantage is size. The camera will fit in my jeans pocket, or I can ...

perfect size, doesn't look like a camera

images are ok, few manual controls

Great camera, but not perfect...

 

As others have stated, this is an excellent beginning camera and one that can easily be worn (with included neck lanyard) or stashed in a pocket. The picture quality is very good for its size and it's simple to use. Battery life is fair to good, ...

Good to excellent picture quality, tiny size, flash, 2 megapixels, memory stick media.

No tripod mounting hole (why???), LCD panel is exposed and easily scratched.

Small size, but only fair quality pictures...

 

I bought this camera yesterday after reading all the good reviews here, but I must say I'm very disappointed in the quality of the pictures. On the highest setting (2.0 MP) the quality is only so-so, and on the only other setting (640X480), it's ...

Good casual camera

 

I enjoy taking pictures- it's fun to point and click and know that you're always going to have a momento of the occasion. I used to use cameras with film (this was a long time ago), and I'd think to myself "wouldn't it be absolutely incredible if there...

Built in flash, rechargable batteries, video shots.

No zoom, batteries don't last extremely long, needs rechargable batteries.
