Summary: Poor quality camera. Will never buy Sony product again. Poor customer service, unable to comprehend that they sold me a defective product. Original camera was defective, never powered on sent back for new camera. New camera worked fine for about 6 months and was only used sparingly.

The colors are vivid, the zoom is amazing, and - for the first time ever - I can take pictures inside, at night, and get action shots...
