Summary: These are nice cameras but they have a serious (fatal) problem with the shutter button. The button falls apart which renders the camera useless. This has happened twice with the camera I own. The first time it occurred under warranty and Sony fixed the problem although it occurred on vacation in France which was a bummer. Now the exact same problem has reoccurred and Sony wants $171.00 to fix it. I'd save my money or buy a Nikon or Canon.
Horrible camera! Expect 30-50 terrible pix per battery life.

Summary: Two comments on this miserable camera. -- Battery life is unbelievably short! Not more than 50 shot with lithium or NiMH batteries - and about 32 with Duracell. -- Shutter lag is 2 seconds or more under any circumstances, guaranteeing that just about any shot is missed. You'd think that the shutter lag at least improves clarity with stellar autofocus, but that that is not the case; you'll get blurry shots of your kid's butts running out of frame.
Sony Cybershot 7.2 MP camera died right after 1 year warranty expired

Summary: Suddenly, while traveling, this Sony Cybershot 7.2 MP stopped working. It was exactly 1 year after purchase, right after the warranty expired. Very disappointing. An electronic problem causes a complete freezing-up right after the shutter button is pushed, resulting in a blank black viewer. After it finally releases from the freeze, no picture has been taken. Repair work costs more than to replace camera, of course. I will think twice before buying Sony camera again.

Summary: I had owned a Nikon 3.1 Megapixel Digital camera prior to this one. It finally started giving me some focus issues after almost 6 years of use, so it was time for a new camera. I research the heck out of every product I purchase. The two I was considering were the H5 and Canon's S3-IS. Everything I read leaned slightly in favor of the Sony. The deciding factor was the LCD. Sony had the awsome LCD and Canon's was barely visible in bright sunlight.
Summary: equipamento bom num estado nãi muito bom!!!!
Pros: o equipamento eh sensacional, zoom bom, tela lcd demais, equipamento no geral eh bommm demaisss
Cons: comprei a camera usada e em 1 semana e meia de uso o botão disparador saiu, quebrou e tive um prejuizo de 180 reais pois moro em Manaus e manutenção é cara, além de os 2 pares de pilhas recarregaveis não estarem pegando, fiquei muito estressada pq se eu quisesse gastar quase 800 reais teria comprado outra camera ou uma novinha em folha, portanto fica o aviso pros inexperientes como eu, repare bem no comprador e no produto.
Summary: Was mich und unzählige andere Ebayer ärgert, daß man Käufer nur positiv Bewerten kann. Egal was für Streß entsteht wenn Sie zu spät oder garnicht Bezahlen. Falsche Lieferadressen angeben oder einen doppelt zur Post rennen lassen. Und ohne Ende Artikelpreise nachverhandeln und über die Portokosten diskutieren wollen.
