DO NOT BUY! SONY WILL NOT HONOR THE WARRANTY

Oliver, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera based on a C-Net review and previous Sony cameras. I was reasonably happy for 8 months (well within the warranty period). Then it went bad. The digital controls stopped functioning, and while I could do some point and shoot (barely), I couldn't change any functions or review the...

DON'T BUY THIS CAMERA!

oinmartini, CNET
10 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought one 8 months ago and honestly was very happy with it, in spite of the control layout on the back of the camera. But then it went bad (complete loss of control of all the menu functions, it would barely point and shoot, and loss of any review function).
  • Pros: Takes great pictures, Very compact with a great zoom.
  • Cons: IT WILL ONLY LAST 8 months and Sony WILL NOT HONOR the warranty., poor/useless controls mapped on the back of the camera, no way to reassign the useful stuff (like exposure compensation. you have to enter a menu for this)

Due to a major design flaw can't recommend this camera.

kenberkunn, CNET
21 February 2012
  • Summary: i am bummed to report that i've had this camera back to the shop twice to be repaired. the flash design is flawed and will no doubt keep breaking. it must be treated with kid gloves in operation or the flash will get stuck in the down position.
  • Pros: does everything
  • Cons: the flash is designed to pop up, but due to the location you block it with your fingers then it breaks. this has happened to me twice and quick web search shows that it happens to other people as well. Also the manual settings are hard to get to.

Takes pictures, but not great ones.

M. Witherington, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: This camera is a little strange. On paper the specs are great but the camera does not deliver good pictures, in fact this camera takes the worst quality pictures i have seen from a camera. The pictures produced are full of artifacts because of the aggressive compression Sony use.

Blitz sehr früh kaputt - Sony Support mies!

Herr Keiner, Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: Habe diese Kamera seit Dezember 2011 und nutze sie sehr stark als günstige Videokamera für sportliche Aktivitäten. Nach ca. einem 3/4 Jahr fuhr der Blitz nicht mehr raus, liess sich egal bei welcher Einstellung nicht mehr nutzen.

  • Pros: Качество видео (на этом плюсов больше нет)
  • Cons: Это не фотоаппарат, это ужас. Жалею что заказывал этот компакт через инет (поверил отзывам). Он у меня уже больше года. Использую только для съёмки видео. Аккумулятор через полгода умер напрочь. Качество фото - ОТСТОЙ (акварель, пережимает цвета и контурит по своему усмотрению)

Spezialkabel nervt

Gerd, Amazon
11 June 2013
  • Summary: Die Kamera ist wegen dem Spezialkabel völlig unpraktikabel! Das Kabel ist selten zur Hand, oder gleich ganz verloren... Wiso nicht einfach Mini-Usb?

Total enttäuscht

  • Summary: Lange Rede, kurzer Sinn. Ich will mich nicht zu sehr in die technischen Besonderheiten und Unterschiede bei den Kameras verlieren. Nach langem Herumsuchen und Vergleichen hatte ich mich für die (ca.
