Summary: After a lot of looking, I found this camera and ordered it. I have been using it and playing with the settings and features for a while now and find it to be smarter than I thought. I love the face and smile detection. You can also take multiple frames per shot by holding down the shutter button (but with NO flash). There are too many features to go over but it hasn't let me down. I've taken some action shots and they have came out well.
Summary: Purchased this camera in summer 2011. While it takes very good pictures it is a fragile camera. Recently on a camping trip, while taking great care to take care of it, while inside is protective case, the dog water dish in back of car, splashed a small amount of water onto the case. it was such a small amount I didnt worry about it until I parked about 15 minutes later. I unzipped the case, the camera felt dry but when I tried to power it on, it was dead.
Summary: I have owned several point-and-shoot cameras and Sony Cybershot was my preferred option. I purchased this one in late 2011 and it really does have very cool features as it states.

Summary: It works great, especially for the price I paid for it. The only problem I had is the satelite for GEO Location doesn't all the time. I guess it depends on the location at the given time. I usally have problem when I am up in the mountainous area.
Summary: The HX5 is another of Sony's excursions into the world of "all technologies for all people"--integrating an enormous array of functions into a very compact form. It is justifiably praised for its depth of color and capacity to do 'fun' things like panoramic shooting. I am still learning its range of abilities.
Summary: Very satisfied with my camera. I have had it now for almost a year and love the i-mode. Automatically takes 2 pictures in low light conditions. Takes great panoramics. Pictures are downloaded to a calendar in the software. No more trying to remember when that shot was taken.
