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. I called Sony and explained I was in a hot humid environment and the only moisture it was exposed to was incidental human sweat.

Beware - terrible camera. 2 problems in 6 months. Terrible customer service.

  • Summary: Classic story. Did the research. Picked this camera. Brought it for anniversary trip to Hawaii. Five days in, I get a memory stick error. Say goodbye to pictures for the trip. This was when I did a google search for "sony cybershot memory stick problem" and came up with tons of hits, including people wondering why Sony can't get this right from years ago. Sony customer support was no help.

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. Turns out that is poor to. Plus it's intelligent auto mode in low light always wants to take a landscape shot even though my kids are staring straight into the lens.

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

robw, Amazon
1 September 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. I've just returned it for refund because of terrible reliabilty though.

  • Summary: l'appareil en lui même donne toute satisfaction, mais le chargeur est foutu après peu de mois d'utilisation et un nouveau chargeur coûte 105 euros, une honte !

update 8 Monate nach Kauf: nur noch 1 Stern !!!!

Gunnar Kossatz "Samvado", Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: Bei aller Liebe, selbst wenn die Kamera Kaffee kochen könnte und das Frühstück ans Bett brächte: sie MUSS länger als 8 Monate funktionieren bei normaler privater Nutzung. LEIDER war das nicht der Fall: Mitten im Urlaub (!!!) fuhr das Objektiv nicht mehr heraus. Ich hatte von Anfang an leichte Probleme mit dem Verschluss der manchmal nicht völlig dicht machte, aber jetzt rührt sich GARNICHTS mehr, trotz Akkuwechsel, leichten Schlägen auf den Hinterkopf und 50x...
