Pros
Takes clear pictures
Cons
Menu

Installation cd vague and slow to install. Also paper and cd manual hard to follow. Could be made much easier for the amateur. Still can`t get it to transfer to the computer with the enclosed cable as pictures come out all scrambled.

Pros
Full HD video
Cons
CD manual instllation
• • •

I just bought a Sony DSC-WX7 and when I inserted the INSTRUCTIONS CD into my CD rom, the first thing it wants is to check whether my WINDOWS MP IS GENUINE OR NOT.Since mine is not I CANNOT install the CD. Why does Sony want to check the genuineness of Windows XP??? I am returning the camera immediately only for that reason.

i dont know
Cons
this camera

This camera will not allow you to use windows movie maker to edit the film. Thus is sucks in my opinion. It has excessive folders and buttons are build for a woman with nails bcause no normal size finger could press them.

Pros
Small. Makes nice audible sounds.
Cons
Image Quality, image quality, image quality.
• • •

Anyone who thinks that this camera has any image qualities remotely similar to that of an SLR is truly kidding themselves. Or any image quality at all for that matter.

As soon as you load your images on a computer and zoom in they are as grainy as ever. I've used every setting. I bought it yesterday, I leave for Thailand today and I have opted to leave it at home and take the SLR.

Pros
HD 3D photo's and records 1080i HD max res play back
Cons
The photo's can look abit soft for a 16 mega pixel camera when thy should be sharp and detailed
• • •

2 of the top key points of this camera seems tobe the HD video recording at a max of 1080i and the 3D stills.

If you dont have a 3D tv there's a mode where you can take shots to show what your photo looks like with tilting camera as a like demo where it only shows
on camera or a hd tv if conecterd to camera and takes another photo in 3D for a 3D tv. So it takes a demo shot
and a 3D pitcher at same time.

Recording video at a max res of 1080i is also some thing
tobe proud of with this camera.

The ICD screen is big too but the buttons can be abit
small to press and you can easy press more then 1 button
if you have big fingers.

When taking pitchers at 16 mega pixel, I dont find them
as sharp as thy shound be like the camera ad's in alittle exstra outline softening look of pitcher,
On the bright side it take some realy nice low light
shots.

Pros
1080i video and options
Cons
Can take abit of time to get use too with out auto mode's
• • •

this camera takes a long time to get use too and many pitchers on auto settings in darker placers can be tricky at times till you know how.

Lots of options and carnt folt the 1080i video

Camera on auto settings has a nasty habbit of overexposure on some dark pics time to time and some times light ones too.

On maurel settings and you know best settings for light
or dark and ISO, You can take some realy sharp detailed pitchers, Miles better then one's reviewed on net.

Only folt i can find with this camera is its auto mode shots. There good but not perfect

Pros
thin body, really easy menus
Cons
nothing

I have one of these and it's the best camera I've ever used...the menus are way easier to navigate than you're saying, it's all in the manual.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
