I have Sony Cybershot DSC-WX350 Digital Camera (Pink),the best thing i love about my camera is the wifi feature, so images get transferred very easily from camera to mobile and laptop.. and that's the main reason for selecting this camera. It is very small camera, so initially it was difficult for me to hold, but now get used to it..
