"Blahhhhh !"

pantech_slate, CNET

  • Pros: Not really anything. I like that you can flip the screen around so you can see what you're taking a picture of, but other then that not a lot. I used it for my horse show, and when I uploaded the pictures the quality was crappy. >:( *Touchscreen
  • Cons: EVERYTHING. The battery lasts like, 2 hours maybe, but if you're using it heavily then maybe an hour & half.

"Why all the trouble reviews?" Wait until you've owned it longer

E.H., Amazon
6 February 2008
  • Summary: We also bought this product after our first child was born and loved it at first. Now, only four years later, the screen is shot; we've received numerous error messages over the life of the product; we have three DVDs that we were able to review once before finanlyzing and now the camera no longer recognizes them; and Sony informs us that we must have it shipped to them for repair at a cost of $250.00.

DVD Great, ImageMixer tough to learn

Ernest Lehmann, Amazon
28 April 2005
  • Summary: These are great for quick DVD renditions of home video, but a bit tougher if you have to spend time in the very-difficult-to-learn and use ImageMixer software. If all you want is to shoot your home movies and make a DVD really fast, this is the camera for you. Great lens, great machine, lousy lousy software. ImageMixer (Pixela) support was very good, but the software leaves a lot to be desired. This camera is not compatible with the MAC platform, a real shame.

"Liked it But . . ."

  • Pros: Compact and I wanted the Night shot feature
  • Cons: I agree with others. Software difficult to use and Windows support programs can not read. Thinking of returning for something else.
