About to order this, is it good?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm looking for a compact digital camera for my dad. He said he wanted a wide angle preferably less than 28mm. It must cost around $200-300 (maybe less if I can find a good deal somewhere). Picture quality must be very much acceptable for the price. He doesn't shoot movies so that function is not a deal maker. Looking at this Sony with pretty good reviews:


Go! and appreciate any suggestions.

You chose a good camera. Sony is the leader in Cameras and Camcorders with Canon not to far behind. You have a good choice there and there is not really a better camera in that price range that I could think of.
