Thanks for sharing these; I found them via your Amazon review. Must say, I'm not that impressed with the clarity and detail on your niece's face. (Pretty girl BTW!). A bit smudgy and smeary when I view it full size. I'm considering this camera but I don't know, I would love to be blown away by clarity but here, in outdoor lighting, the Sony falls short of what I would like to see. Not your fault, man! And maybe I'm being too picky, as your retouched niece pic looks awesome at regular web size. Thanks again.
That might be because you're looking for DSLR quality from a point & shoot camera.
