Really bad photos!

Summary: Wish this baby was better! I was looking for a light weight alternative to my heavy DSLR camera to use when I just wanted to snap a quick shot and didn't want to lug my DSLR with me. I really wanted to like this camera! But sadly, it takes HORRIBLE photos. There are lots of good reviews for the camera so perhaps mine is a lemon or else maybe all the other reviewers have low standards. CONS: 1.
Summary: I bought this camera and I was blown away with the picture quality. It says 12 megapixels and thats what it is. I bought the Polariod 12.1 megapixels the week before and had to return b/c I was not satisfied with that product. This camera is legit, couldn't stop taking pictures of everything when I first got it. It really hard to put it down and it seemed like it made everything look clear.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace a Sony Cybershot 6MP camera that I have had for years. The quality of photos produced by my old camera led me to believe that this new camera would be of equal quality. I must say I was very disappointed in the photo quality. Unless you were right on top of what you were shooting, the photos were grainy, out of focus or blurred. The pictures I took were not fast action or night shots--the shutter speed was not a factor.
Summary: I bought this camera a couple of weeks ago, and it has already failed on me. I'm sending it back to Amazon for a refund. I was taking pictures the other day, and I was viewing them, then tried to switch back to shooting mode, and the camera lens seemed to be stuck and wouldn't come out like it's supposed to. A message appeared on the screen that said, 'Turn the camera off and on again'. That didn't help at all.
Summary: Camera will not turn on. It is beat up, scratched up, dropped, color peeled off, very poor condition. It will not turn on, and did not include charger to check to see if the battery is bad. I can't pay more money for a new battery just "in case" it works. I sent the camera back for a refund this morning. Highly disappointed. The description was good/used.
Summary: I was really enjoying this camera - until the screen stopped working. I went on the Sony repairs page and filled out form, whereupon I was asked to agree to a repair fee of £120. I wouldn't mind so much except that the only information they had about the fault, apart from my comments in an open text box, was that I had selected 'other' from a drop-down list. I tried calling them and they confirmed that I would have to pay £120, whatever the fault turned out to be.
