Does not function as it should!!

Summary: I did not care about the minor scratches on the camera. Expected on a used item. But the wheel that set the functions such as East, Portrait, Video etc. would not hold. Just jumped from one function to another on its own, kind of crazy. The clip that hold battery in was also missing. I was familiar with this camera, as I had one and it died and was hoping to replace it as I loved it. This was not usable however. I am sending it back.
Summary: picture indoors? dark or grainy. picture outdoors? dark or overexposed. no idea why this camera sucked so bad for us, but seriously it it awful. we are NOT camera snobs! my iphone takes better pics and it's camera is junk. i feel uncomfortable selling it on ebay or craigslist for crying out loud, and i would normally sell those losers anything!
Summary: I got this as a gift, and although I've been using it for more than a year, I still don't like it. The delay on it is horrendous -- I know that for a point-and-shoot camera there will always be a delay, but this is the longest one I've ever encountered. And it doesn't matter how the settings are adusted -- it's always a few seconds delay, which means 75% of the time I miss whatever it was I was trying to capture in a picture.
Possible fix for the black screen after the lens quits...

Summary: I loved my Sony until just over a year into it when the thing kicked it. My sister in law had the same problem with hers and it seems many others have had this problem. The lens goes in and out and in and out and then you get a black screen on the lcd that says "turn power off" or some such thing....and you're done. You can call customer support who will give you stupid solutions and then refer you to customer service who might blow you off...like they did me..
Summary: The camera is fairly good, but the pictures above ISO 200 are terrible, full of noise. The lens shaft is not sturdy. All in all, I would not recomend it, and I regret buying it. I personally would go with a small Canon.

Summary: I purchased this camera on Nov 10th 2008. One week ago (second week of Feb.) the door to the battery case stopped closing properly. I examined the door and saw that the little "hooks" that hold the door closed inside the camera appear to be no longer there. This camera has never been dropped of mistreated. I have had several digital cameras in the past and this is the first time that I have anything like this happen. No biggie's I thought, it is just a lemon.
Inconsistent quality, very disappointed, ended up returning it

Summary: I do not like returning items, I hardly ever do it. I prefer investing time researching reviews and comparing products before committing to buy. This camera was an exception. I ended up returning it to Amazon. This was my first venture into Cybershot point-and-shoot cameras. This camera is very attractive, it looks really good in paper and given the features provided (e.g. 5x optical zoom and nice display size) it beats similar cameras in price by far.
Summary: I'm a Canon fan. Our last 3 cameras were Canons... but my wife and I decided that we'd give Sony a try. We liked the bright, crisp screen, the compactness of the camera, the quick startup time, the long zoom range (5x optical), the convenient settings dial, the layout of all the buttons, the ease of use of the menu options and basic camera functions, slideshow playback (with music), and let's be honest here, it's nice to have a camera in the color you like (rather than...
Summary: Purchased this from Amazon almost a month ago. I used it and compared it to a Nikon 5200 and Canon A610, both of which were 5 megapixel. What is shocking is the low quality of the pictures, which on close examination turn out to contain a high amount of digital noise and other signs of poor image processing. The Nikon has noisy images, but the Sony is noticeably worse than even that.
Summary: I wanted this camera last year since my Nikon Coolpix 4300 was bulky (still takes beautiful pics after 5 years). While I liked the slim model that Sony made, nothing else about this camera impressed me nor did I think that it was worth a fraction of what my husband paid. I believe in keeping things simple.
