A digital camera with issues!

Cherylroni, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: This was an expensive camera and I expected quality due not only to the price but also the Sony name. However, the camera has been a pain! It has broke twice, with the lenscover not opening or only opening partway. Also the buttons are SMALL, so if you have large fingers, pass on these models. I liked the zoom and the quality was usuallty pretty good, although defintely more blurry photos than my Canon PwerShot.

A worn-out product best offered as a parts only item.

rocde, Ebay

  • Summary: A product on its last legs. Unable to evaluate it. Doesn't work. Should have been offered as a for parts only item. The zoom lens locks up while being focused. Seems that this camera was once a top quality camera but it shows extensive signs of wear not immediately apparent from its picture on ebay.

Ruim.

ENYAMADA, MercadoLibre
17 May 2013
  • Summary: Não sei se tive azar, mas a minha não funciona o foco mais com pouco mais de 2 meses de uso. Os prós e contras citados ilustram bem minha opinião sobre a máquina.
  • Pros: Visor grande
  • Cons: Usa cartão de memória proprietário da Sony, Não tem foco manual, Não tem estabilizador, A minha quebrou com poucos meses de uso (o foco automático borra toda a foto), Filmagem de qualidade sofrível
