Wrong USB Cable means no recharging batteries, no ability to set-up Wi-Fi

Summary: Unhappy both with the wrong USB cable limiting me on my extended trip and forcing me to spend money on batteries and to search for a USB Cable that will work (my cellphone, tablet and other charger cables don't fit either). Also unhappy with photos. They are all dark. I've tried working with various settings but nothing seems to help. The display is also nearly impossible to see in bright sunlight. I would not buy this camera again.
Summary: The camera itself is a little smaller than imagined but works great. However, I would recommend buying the camera on its own because this kit came without the case. I had to contact Amazon to get a new (and not the advertised) case sent to me a week later.
Summary: Had used it for a function at my house for the first time and decided to return it. Though the size is very compact and a good 20X zoom, the most important thing is the picture. This gives you a blur picture if there is a slightest movement by the subject. When you take pictures in the party, you cannot ask the subject to pose for the pictures every time. Take it from me, you cannot take spontaneous shots with this cam.
Summary: Photos are good, but unless on rapid shoot it takes seconds to process. And I haven't (to date) found a way to control how to choose the focus options. For extended zoom (as expected) you will need a steady rest. Small enough to fit in a pocket and light enough to not be bulky. If I had known of the processing issue, I would not have purchased. I use it for quick nature shots and nature won't always hold the pose.
Summary: Purchased camera based on the glowing review and the 20X zoom. However, I was very disappointed. 1. the image quality was nowhere near as good as my 3 year old Nex 5 which only has 14MP WX300 produced grainy image in-door well-lit with or without flash. without flash, it produces even worse image 2. very slow saving files, it takes 2-3 seconds to save an image. tested with a class10 SD card came with kit, and a class10 SD i'm using with my nex5 camera.

Summary: Shipping and delivery time were great. Right on time. The camera and attachments were all there and packing was great. The camera took several great shots the first couple of days. Then my wife and I wanted to download shots to her computer. Went online to the suggested Sony website and downloaded the "Home" program. No problems. Hooked up the camera and downloaded the few pictures we had taken.
Summary: I received this Sony DSC-WX300 camera as part of the Amazon Vine review program. I have been procrastinating on doing my review because I really, really wanted to like this camera and wanted to give it a fair chance. I have been using it frequently for a month now, but I am still not feeling the love. I am not a professional photographer, nor do I know a lot about the technical aspects of cameras.

Summary: About 22nd September 2014 I bought the above item (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX 300 - red which at first I was very pleased with but a fault has occurred that I cannot resolve, You can only see half the screen as the other half is completely white with plus a white band across the top of the screen. One day it was working perfectly and the next this fault occurred. Going through all the menu options does not resolve this fault.
