my camera is old dsc-w50 and my wife has a dsc-w190 (like dsc-w180) my camera is by far the best in photos, structure, functions, menus and SPEED, the video in fine mode is amazing.

Excellent camera! I've had 4 Cyber-shots (including 1 newer than this one) and this is by far the best one I've used. Highly recommend!
