This is a great Camera - impressed by the high optical zoom, resolution,not flip screen,As long battery . I bought from Amazon 30 days ago by ABC CAMERA WORLD. I am happy and fully enjoy with this pretty pink colour.Iam really pleased to have received the Sony wx350p thru amazon.100% genuine transaction.The product was as per the description provided on their website.
Solid, smart and good-looking, the Cybershot WX350 is a sleek compact camera with a beautifully designed exterior. Light enough to hold in one hand with no issues, the outer casing feels very durable, and it's slim enough to fit into the pocket of even a tight pair of jeans.
While we didn't find it particularly problematic, the flash is situated on the front left, which could potentially be obscured by fingers – it's something to bear in mind when holding the camera. The rest of the buttons and functions, however, seem to be well placed and easy enough to reach.
Shooting mode can be changed via a scrolling dial on the top of the WX350, while image settings, camera and Wi-Fi settings are accessed via the menu button. The LCD screen is large and clear, taking up the majority of the space, although this makes the buttons feel rather small.
There's also a scroll wheel on the back that can be used to cycle through some of the settings or photos during playback, as well as a four-way control pad that gives access to timer and drive mode, display settings, flash and the Photo Creativity art filters.Oddly, you can't access the full set of filters unless you're in Program Auto Mode, during which they're not accessible via the Photo Creativity button (as they are in all the other shooting modes). Instead they are buried in the main menu system.
While image previews straight after a shot is taken can appear to be very noisy, when viewing via the playback button or on a computer they are much sharper. This can be adjusted by setting the display quality to 'high' in the setup options, although this will decrease battery life, so leave it on standard if you want to save your battery.
We had a couple of issues when trying to connect to the Wi-Fi during testing. We found that it was easy enough to send photos to a smartphone using the companion app, but trying to control the camera via a smartphone was more problematic and only worked 50% of the time.
When it does work, however, you can use your smartphone to adjust the zoom, self timer and flash, and you can choose to save the photos to your phone as well as on the camera, which is pretty useful.
The instructions to set up the Wi-Fi could be a little clearer. It isn't very obvious that you need to download an app in order to be able to transfer photos back and forth, as it's not mentioned in the on-camera instructions.
If you've never used a Sony camera before, you may need to spend some time familiarising yourself with the menu system, which can be a little tricky to navigate at first as there are quite a few sub-menus and headings to scroll through to find the setting you want.
Thankfully, Sony has taken the decision to unify all of its menu systems, so if you've used a camera from its DSLT or CSC range, you'll likely be more at home. Although this is the type of camera that you'll often use in fully automatic mode, if you do want to take control of certain settings, it's not the quickest.
Once you get used to the quirks of the WX350 it's relatively simple to find your way around, but it's worth noting that there are very few shortcuts available if you want to change setting quickly. It's a shame there isn't a function menu like there is on other Sony cameras, as this would probably make it quicker to adjust settings when needed.
GOOD AUTO CAMERA WITH SHARP FOCUS.

Camera is good and handy but it lacks manual controls. Every shot is automatic. But quality of photos is very fine.
Suggest to buy it from a shop/store (15000 rs-16000 rs max)

Big blast in small box.
Well, it is a fantastic point & shoot camera.Flash is very powerful, make a pose in completely dark place & click..everything will be so clear.
The battery is really very small and is very powerful which can click almost 470 shots in a single charge....the camera came with a sony carry case and the seller mentioned 4 GB card in the site but it came with 8 GB LUCKY...I really happy to buy it from AMAZON.in...! the packaging of the product was of good quality...and last but not the least its about Wi-Fi/ NFC support...work perfectly...awesome feeling..!! i would say this camera is worth buying without any hesitation...go for it guys..

excellent compact camera and very easy to carry it around but not able to use the wi-fi feature and the customer care of SONY given in the user manual is not picking up the call.

Cool picture quality, awesome zoom. But most effective feature is its wifi connectivity. You can easily control with your cell phone and take a group pic including yourself
Logical requirements -> Balanced product.

I purchased it on 25 Sept 2014 from Filpkart for 16350. Delivered on next day in a compact and good cartoon. The camera is very compact, feature rich, light-weight. However, the documents (manual) supplied is not exhaustive or elaborative about basic functions and controls. The dealers at Amazon have been quoting too high a price though my location (PIN 400066) is such that the product is available readily, abundantly and in vicinity. I had a very good demo at Chroma in local (Oberai) mall. This shifted me from a little bulky Canon SX510 and Nickon L330 with added advantage of very useful built-in wi-fi and NFS features and digital zoom in addition to optical 20x zoom. The zoom works best for approximately 100 yards though. Picture quality is great. I took fire-cracker shot in night sky in ¨Program Auto¨ mode and it came nice ! For wide angle you need to zoom-out, which is a better feature in SX510 or l330. But in this camera you can take 360 (even 180 is enough for novices like me) degrees panoramic photos which give fantastic pics. I find it good companion on travel and pleasure.
