A nice compact design that initially took good pictures
3 December 2014
Summary: A nice compact design that initially took good pictures. With rather minimal usage, in less than two years it broke in a way that caused it to badly overexpose pictures in bright light. Looking at the web, it appears that others have had the same problem and there is no simple fix.
I guess now it's pretty much garbage because will not spend that again

Summary: Soo many problems already. Broken flash, black screen. I've had it less than three years and already spent $100 to fix it. I guess now it's pretty much garbage because will not spend that again.

Summary: There are few things I like on this camera. These include the speed it takes consecutive pictures, decent image stabilization for shots in low light without flash, the size of the camera, and zoom capability. I also got it for good price, so that is also a plus.
Summary: Purchased on 4/15/11 and flash stopped working on 5/5/11. After set the "flash" mode on auto, the flash does not pop up no mater what setting I use. Since there is neither printed nor online manual, user would not even know where to begin to fix the problem.
Summary: First, my apologies to the 4 Sony employees who gave this camera great reviews. We'll have to agree to disagree. I picked up the HX7V at Costco for $279 after playing with it in the store for a while.
