Summary: Camera served me very well for two years, hence: the five stars rating.... but yesterday the screen went dim.... it still takes pictures but no display. Could it be the lifespan of the OLED screen? Wonder how much it would cost to repair the screen?
I bought this camera because it had 60p But found out later that, that was a joke.

Summary: The frame rate can go as high as 60p but then you can't play it on anything. not even a bluray. Oh and it does look good when you do. its is probably just make all 3 frames next to each other the same because its not any smoother then other cameras I use. Plus with how nice smart phone cameras are getting I would think that its worth the small improvent in picture quality to keep in in my pocket.
Summary: I recently broke my previous cyber-shot after 4 years of regular use by dropping it once too often. I ordered this as a replacement. I've used it at 5 or 8 weekend events as well as in my work (photographing my leatherworks) and it works every bit as well as it's predecessor. I do think the controls and adjustments are a bit too complex to use on the fly, especially outdoors, but since I use it with the same settings 98% of the time, that's a minor problem for me.
Summary: This expensive and fully featured camera is made for people who have no idea about photography and don't care. In some ways it is remarkably capable and in other ways it is so dumbed down that the needs of precision are removed and the result is unsatisfactory. Some shots are breathtakingly beautiful. Colors seem to pop and the images seem to be larger than life and richer than the actual scene.
