12 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Sony DSC-F707 reviewer reckoned that the product was not heavy and bulky. "badlydrawnboy69" wrote in their review on Amazon “The only draw back (not MS size anymore, i got a few), is the size of the baby, its just sometimes bulky to carry around.”.

Very Small Screen Size

The screen sizes of digital cameras of a comparable type and age to the DSC-F707 range from 1.4" to 6.7", and the average screen size is 2.8". With a screen size of only 1.8 inches, the Sony DSC-F707 has one of the smaller screen sizes amongst cameras of this age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

We think you might also be interested in alternative cameras which also have an image stabiliser including the Sony DSC-HX200V which also has a higher rating.
