Summary: I have used this three times since I bought it and it will not hold a charge. The door at the back holding the battery in comes open constantly. It is very cheaply made. I am so disappointed because i bought so many extras for it such as case and the hands free band to record when I dive.
Summary: No real instructions! Must go on line for anything reasonable. Buttons/controls way too small! Plug-in cover flimsy at best and all but breaks when placing in aux. viewer. Really poor engineering as far as handling. I expect Sony quality per taking movies but horribly disappointed per mechanics.
Summary: The good. Image stabilization. The bad. Everything else. The included waterproof case turns into a steam room (yeah I know they sell a product for that). Major lens flare issues, with our without the case. The handlebar mount accessory won't hold position. The skeleton case is garbage.

Summary: Bought this camera used it twice and it stopped charging.... It was a few weeks out of warranty so I had to pay $25 to have it "repaired" they called me and said they could find nothing wrong with it they would send it back with a new charger...
Summary: No idea where these decent reviews are coming from. While there may be several good points about these Sony cams(I actually liked the simplicity and intuitiveness of the software and the stabilization) they are completely overshadowed by the fundamental flaws.
Summary: On my last dive trip there were many people with a Go Pro. They had no problems and very nice videos. There were two people with the Sony including myself. Both housings flooded at about 100 feet. The were both new. Five thousand miles from home is no place to own a defective housing.
