GPS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

Hugo E., Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: EVERYTHINGS ON THIS CAMERA IS OK, PIXLES,FLASH, THE ZOOM, SIZE, COLOR, PICTURE QUALITY, HD VIDEO, BUT THE ONLY THING THAT I DONT LIKE IT, ITS THE GPS, BECAUSE YOU SHOULD BE IN AN OPEN PLACE IF NOT, DOUESNT WORK. I THINK SONY WILL WORK ON THAT IN A NEARLY FUTURE.

Poor build quality

Mark, Amazon
14 November 2011
  • Summary: To be honest, not a bad camera, but it has been built to such a feeble standard that I was able to crack the screen by sitting on it - and I only weigh about 140lb. Yes, it's my own stupid fault to some extent - but I've had plenty of other compact digital cameras that have been built to a far higher, more robust standard, and have been able to take quite a beating over their lives. To have a camera break so easily after such a short time is pretty frustrating.

GPS issues

Jose Juan Rodriguez "JRod351", Amazon
27 August 2011
  • Summary: was excited to get this camera mainly for the GPS feature. The GPS works poorly. I have to constantly wait about 3-5 minutes for the camera to get GPS signal even when I'm outside nowhere near buildings.. I bought this camera for my Thailand vacation... Although it took beautiful pictures, I was very very dissatisfied with the GPS tagging. I had the previous model version of this camera and I loved the GPS tagging. You would think it's an upgrade.

Almost ready for prime time

Meir Kryger, Amazon
18 August 2011
  • Summary: I am a fairly experienced film and digital hotographer and based on the specs and some reviews took it as my main camera for a three week Scandinavian and Baltic trip. I did not want to lug around an SLR. That was a big mistake. I took many great shots, but had to discard many and missed many. You have read about the pros and cons, but I will just give you the cons, the reasons why I am returning this camera. The list is in order of importance of problems.

Great Pics, GPS is complete garbage.

Amazon Customer "MapNinja", Amazon
30 July 2011
  • Summary: I am a GIS Specialist, just returned from a 2 week archaeological expedition in Eastern and Southern Mongolia. I bought this camera to simplify data collection, and it takes beautiful shots, but the GPS is just complete garbage. After syncing the assist data, the unit still discharged the battery TWICE before obtaining a lock on 4 satellites. Thereafter, it took from 3-5 minutes every time I powered up for the GPS to obtain a fix.

Like Sony features, but not so much picture quality, video lag time

T. K. K. HO, Amazon
20 June 2011
  • Summary: Wish Sony has more level of picture compression adjustment. Pictures are overly processed could be due to compression or just the way the camera handle pictures (looks more like water painting when zoomed in). Consider this is a point-n-shot camera, pictures are pretty good on 1920x1080 monitor, and regular print (because of 16MP). Definitely need to use a fast SDHC memory card, maybe close to class 10. Very slow response at play back photos with class 4.

User Review

Markomuel, DP Review
14 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Excellent picture quality and fast focus, but otherwise just too slow for me. Start up is slower than on other recent models. Zoom takes a full second before it starts zooming and I had expected better low light capabilities from this one. The GPS is very basic in what it shows (Lat Long only) and slow to lock in. Not sure if mine came with a bad battery but I got less than 100 pictures per charge with the GPS on.

Never buying from Sony ever again!!

JAMES BRYCE, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I have this Camera and it has a major fault ie overexposing photos after only 2 years of owning it despite hardly using the camera. Ive contacted Sony numerous times and they want £117.00 to repair it. I think this is so unfair.

bacana

joão simões vaz, Bondfaro
14 July 2012
  • Summary: Lamento apenas o fato que as imagens registradas, algumas, devido a caracteristica da lente destorce principalmente se nao usar o recurso "zoom" de forma correta.
  • Pros: bacana que faz produção de acordo com o seu senso e gosto, não fica limitado ao automático da máquina.
  • Cons: a lente destorce as imagens capturadas | baixa carga da bateria
