    These pictures are from my Sony Cybershot W55. They are not composed right or anything like that but why are they so noisy? The picture of the baby was taken this morning (newest member of the family, sister in law to be's baby girl born this morning) and I noticed how noisy it was when looking at the picture so I tried to take a quick snap of my dog outside and got the same thing. All setting were set on auto. Is it too much to ask a $200 camera to give me decent shots on auto setting? Should I take it back or deal with it?

    Are these too small to see the noise? I can't tell because i already know it is there.

    I can't really see the noise but I know what you're talking about (I have a Sony DSC-W1 and it does the same thing from time to time). I think it's just the camera adjusting the ISO instead of the shutter speed / aperture in order to maintain a good exposure. Maybe try it on manual, keeping the ISO low and adjusting the shutter speed for a good exposure and see if the noise is still so prominent.

    I will give it a try but I am not too sure I want to have to deal with doing that on a permanent basis. I only use the point and shoot for quick snaps that I am not too worried about composition or the whole "photography" thing. I just carry it around in case of a car accident or like today where my rebel XT was not allowed in the hospital so I will get better shots when the baby comes home.

    I have never had problems like this on any other P&S, including my other Sony cybershots.

    Anyone else? I am debating taking this camera back and getting a Canon SD750. I liked Sony but I have heard a lot of problems about them lately and then this. Since my dSLR is a Canon my point and shott might as well me too.
