Worst Camera I ever purchased!

Summary: I have owned several Sony products. We purchased this camera last year and I have never been happy with it! The battery life is HORRIBLE!!!!! We even purchased an extra battery and we still could not go for an entire day on our vacation and take pictures! The quality of the pictures is great but the battery life ruins this entire product! I would NOT recommend this camera!
Summary: This is the first time I'm writing a review. I never felt before so strongly about a product that I thought that I should warn against or endurance it...until now. The Sony Cybershot DSC-T500 is a digital camera. You are about to purchase it because you want to take PHOTOS so you can print them or view them on your computer screen. That is the main function of a camera - photo making. The quality of pictures that this camera produces is substandard. Period.
Summary: I purchased the DSCT500 new in November 2008. Unfortunately, the picture quality was way below any digital camera I have ever owned or used. I was advised to send to the Sony Repair Center which I did. It was returned and the pictures were still of low quality. It appears that perhaps there was a defect in the lens, the sensor, or the programming. However, my main complaint turns out to be the lack of service by Sony Customer Service and Customer Relations.
Summary: I ended up taking this camera back to the store, and it broke my heart to do it. In all other respect I was very happy with the advanced tech the T500 brings to the table. The HD video looked great, touchscreen made it easy to get around the menu system, and it took pretty good pictures.... Except under flash conditions.
Summary: I'm on my second one of these cameras (DSC-T500), and both have recorded large bubbles or spots on the pictures that are taken indoors with flash. Not every single such picture, but most of them have this. I haven't seen this mentioned in any other review - is anyone else seeing this? Other than that, the outdoor pictures and videos are great. But ruined indoor photos are a deal breaker.
Summary: I just got this camera and for some reason when I stick my 8gb fat32 memory stick duo it says not enough space on memory card and I can't record anything but I can take pics but when I stick my 1gb fat format stick in it does let me record. then I convert the 1 gig to fat32 and it doesn't let me record.
Summary: Have this camera for slightly over one year and a very strange software problem occurred. The camera refuses to operate : "For use with compatible battery only". Have bought new sony batteries, used my friends and does not work. After calling the repair centre they advised me to send it back to them for repair...which will cost £114 no matter what the fault is! Great! Nice incentive for me to switch to another brand...
Cons: Отвратительный аккумулятор, придется покупать дополнительный. Отсутствие ucb, к ПК подклюсается посредством огромного "переходника" при этом аккамулятор разряжается. Нестандартные карты памяти )) Низкое качество фотографий для такой цены, "плохой" корпус- у панасоника (за тоже- и лучше) есть водонепроницаемый, удароустойчивый корпус.
