Reviews and Problems with Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30
Showing 1-6 of 6
2 warranty repairs for the SAME issue, and now it needs another repair for the SAME issue but it's out of warranty!

Summary: Somehow dust or particles are getting inside the lens causing dark spots to appear in my images. I always keep it in a case (never directly in a pocket). In the first year that I owned it, I had to send it to Sony twice for the same issue. They replaced the lens, and the dark spots went away. Now it's after the 1-year warranty, and it is doing the same thing again! Again, I keep my camera very clean, so it's possible that the source of the particles is internal.

Summary: I did not receave my camera till now, i paid it i Apr-5. The camera is stopped in custom in Brazil in this moment, maybe it is not an original Sony, maybe it is a copy. I still waiting for it.
Excerpt: Great camera for outdoor use but pathetic for indoor/low light. Pros: Great zoom, great image stabilization, nice WiFi image transfer. Cons: 1. I doubt Sony actually tested this camera with the flash. The zoom lens is very long and the flash too flush with the camera such that for closeups with flash there is an obvious shadow in the lower right of the image (initially I thought there was something wrong with the chip) 2.
Excerpt: I really don't know the way people judge cameras. All advantages of a camera (chic, fast, lots of features) are absolutely useless, if there is no picture quality. I felt happy when I bought this camera, because it lies absolut save and comfortable in my hand. Its fast, it has a great zoomand it is just fun to handle and to play with. But the picture quality is at same level as a 50$ camera. Just pixel squash!!! Only good enough to put item pics on Ebay.
May be a good camera but you need to learn Chineese to use it

Summary: If you buy this from the same place I did you won't be able to use it. It does not have English as a language and Sony have no patch, download or anything. It's probably a good camera but don't get one here. I'm still trying for a refund.
