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.
Summary: I've used this item three times, and by the third usage (well after my return period), the device just gave up, and stoped working. There was absolutely no damage or misuse of this item on my part, yet no matter how many batteries and chargers I purchased (in the hopes that was the issue, and not...
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.

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.
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...
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.
Summary: I bought this camera in June 2010 but I couldn't get a chance to use it but when I used it, i was gutted...It is utter useless camera. I bought this camera thinking it will be gud investment but i am afraid that it has let me down. Doesn't take pic wat it says...
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

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.
