If you want an unreliable camera buy this one

Mi. Chuck, Amazon

  • Summary: I received this camera for a Christmas gift and have had problems ever since. Whenever I wanted to use it the battery was dead. I replaced the battery and it worked great until it failed to turn on. Then I started seeing an error message: E:66:11. Now it will not download my vacation pictures.

Wreckingbacher, Amazon

  • 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.

Camera quit during vacation, Sony won't honor warranty.

M. D. Sullivan, Amazon
1 October 2010
  • Summary: We were hiking the Great Wall of China with this camera and it quit working on the drive back to the hotel. It left us high and dry for the rest of the trip. After sending it to Sony's repair contractor, I was told it had water damage and would not be repaired as it was no longer under warranty.

Poor poor quality all round

Tim, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: Even though I decided to not be a sheep by getting the TZ10 and go for the Sony this was a very bad move. Like so many before have said the picture quality is poor, all mushy if you zoom in. However the worst of it was I bought this for it's alleged good low light performance.

Terrible quality of photos

Bluebacchus, Amazon
14 November 2010
  • Summary: For all its wonderful features and decent price, the quality of the photos produced is terrible. Washed out and weak. Sony should withdraw this product from the market in order to prevent its reputation from being damaged.

Loads of features but bad pics and unreliable don't buy

robw, Amazon
22 August 2010
  • Summary: Bought this in April as a 'do it all' compact. Smaller than carrying around my DSLR and hopefully better quality pics than my 3+yr old Canon compacts. And with the benefit of HD movies I wouldn't have to buy another device. It was a close run with the Lumix TZ10, but the full HD won it for me.
