One of two cameras purchased is not working properly and has a dark spot on the viewing screen.

Summary: It is not the camera itself that I dislike. I feel that I was sent a re-furbished (used) camera instead of a new one and it is not working properly. In addition, this is the 3rd of the same camera and the two new purchases were boxed differently. One came with a USB data cable and the other had a USB card reader that does not work with out an adapter that I do not have.
Summary: Got this for my mother who's not camera nor technology savvy. No need for a lot of features. The price point, the name brand, and the large display were the main reasons for the purchase. The Easy Mode is especially fitting for her. I must say, however, that I was totally disappointed with this camera after a mere few hours of experimentation. At first I was impressed. Compared with my other cameras (all Canon), the user interface is really well designed and easy to use.
Summary: Kodak Z760 that we used at the plant died. So my boss buy anything but a Kodak. Great price on this Sony and with a name like Sony it has to be good - right? Wrong. Great price but the photos are poor and when placed side by side against the 6.1MP Kodak Z760 photos in powerpoint presentations there is no question that this is a terrible camera.
Summary: I used this in a large electronics store and liked it - liked the buttons, menus, etc. Snapped a pic or two, looked fine. So I bought it. Took it hiking the very next day. Seemed to work well, though I did find it switching "scenes" annoying. I can't tell you how disappointed I was with the pictures when I got home. Some are too dark - a lot of them. On a bright sunny day. Outdoors. Some are either blurry up close and stuff in the back is clear, or vice versa.
Summary: Pros: * Effective 12.1 MP is great * Everything a point & shoot should do Cons: * Main gripe = If you take a portrait picture, when you play/preview it back, the camera does not automatically rotate the picture. The last Sony digi-cam I had (W220, discontinued & a step below), rotated pictures automatically. With this camera, with a portrait pic, you have to press Menu, scroll down to 5 buttons to find the rotate function & manually do it yourself.
Summary: Prompt delivery - no obvious faults with camera. Charged it took it on holiday to Scotland where it worked perfectly for 4 days then it just stopped working. I rang Littlewoods who told me there was a 12 mths warenty so I'm going to return it.
Summary: Sony ist nicht immer gleich Sony. Besser etwas mehr Geld ausgeben aber richtiges Gerät kaufen. Das ist für Anfänger gedacht die noch dazu farbenblind und geschmacklos sind. Wer das kauft wird garantiert in paar Monate ein anderes zulegen.
