Summary: Love this little camera. It takes awesome pictures. Movies and Panoramics too. The evening shots are amazing. I am completely satisfied with the camera. The only thing I would want is more zoom. My last camera was double the zoom and I didn't realize how much I used it. I can crop pictures for the look with this one though. I would recommend getting extra batteries because using it for video sucks the power quickly. I got 2 back ups just in case. Works great.
Summary: We did love this camera, however, I believe it's got an inherit defect. We had it less than three weeks when the lens started not opening, or, opening and closing repeatedly. A message would come up stating to power the camera on and off, but this didn't help; the camera had stopped working altogether. I'm returning it as I write this. We had the same camera previously, and it had the same issue (but, only after 2-3 years that time).
Summary: I basically blew out my fuse because this camera comes with an outlet for 250 volts and an adapter. Well the voltage in the US is 120 NOT 250! This is so stupid. Horrible seller because this information is not at all indicated in the discription of the item, even SOny doesnt know how this happened. Why would you ship such an item to the US????
Summary: I absolutely LOVE this camera. I know there's a new model after this but I just think this is such a great camera. It makes your scenario looks neat, it makes your skin looks good, it makes the whole picture much better than if taken with other cameras and it's still portable. It's basically an awesome, portable, easy to use, everyday camera.
has returned 2 times with problem "turn the power off and on again"
21 January 2012
Summary: Bought this during 11/2010. picture quality, ease of use are OK. But has this problem of "turn the power off and on again". I have to mail it back to Sony and sony did repair it and mailed back to me. Again after 2 months (this is too bad, in the midst of a vacation) gave exactly same problem. Mailed this again, not sure if they will repair again for free this time as it is more than 12 months now. But surprisingly how can it give exactly same problem EVEN after repair?
Summary: Negatives: -image stabilizer is a little weak for video, when you start to zoom in or out it causes the lens to jerk or twitch because of the slight play in the mechanism -despite the good lcd resolution it's a little difficult to tell if you are focusing properly -battery life is kind of short, and if you turn the dial to video mode the stabilizer runs full time even if you are not recording which helps drain the battery faster.
Summary: This is my second purchase of this camera. I have two daughters who love the quality of pictures that this camera takes. It is expensive but well worth the money. I also give high praise to the customer service that I received from Sony!!!! That means a great deal to me.
Summary: This camera lasted one, ONE week. Then the lens would have an error asking to turn it on/off. The pictures were good for the 6 days it worked. I wish I would have returned it, but I missed the window and have sent it into Sony to be repaired after sitting on the phone for 28 minutes with Customer Service. They STILL have it 3 weeks later, after they said it would be 7-10 days. As I said total junk. I wish I would have picked something, anything else.
