Which will be better ,nikon s220 or sony cybershot w180 please rply me

It all depends on what you want it for. If you want better quality photos, go with a larger diameter lens. If you want portability, go for the other features. Anything above 5mpx is not necessary, unless you plan to make poster sized blowups.

Your LCD is only a small preview screen. I have on many occasions tested a camera and viewed on the screen. When you view the image on a computer it is enlarged to a much larger image. If your pictures appear out of focus you may have a bad lens. Set your camera to the highest mega pixel rate and retake some test images. If these are blurred you have a bad lens.

My sony dsc-71 cybershot just developed what appears to be a hazy image or an image with a halo effect. The camera is spproximately 4 years old and worked great until just a few days ago.
