Lens assembly issues

Shrambo, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • 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).

Horrible Seller - outlet not compatible in the US

sg95, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • 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????

Total Junk.

C. Upham, Amazon
18 November 2011
  • 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.

FISHBOWL!!!!!

plusszdprncss, Amazon
1 March 2011
  • Summary: I am SO disappointed in Sony! This is my 3rd attempt in the last two months with a Sony camera, 7th attempt with trying to find the best point and shoot. I love the interface and it takes great low light pictures, the only problem is they all look like they have a fishbowl effect! Each Sony camera we tried did the same thing but we just wanted to keep trying it with different models to see if it would change!

#FAIL #FAIL #FAIL

Dennis D. Cote "OOOOORAH", Amazon
6 September 2010
  • Summary: Length:: 0:20 Mins SORRY!!! I SPOKE TO SOON. STOP BUYING THE SONY DSC-WX5. The lens already is broken after only 24 days. I tried brought back to Camera Wholesalers in Stamford, CT and they "fixed" it and got the Sony DSC-WX5 camera and was going like a cuckoo clock with the lens until it got stuck. There is a design flaw in the Sony DSC-WX5, specifically the Sony G Lens and the motor which causes it to stop functioning properly.

  • Excerpt: Что сказать, даже слов нет, одни маты!
  • Pros: У меня была модель DSC-W100, у знакомых DSC-N1 DSC-N2. Пришлось сравнить... Учитывая, что данный аппарат намного новее и цена не маленькая могу смело сказать: Достоинств НЕТ!!!!
  • Cons: Все недостатки, что были перечислены - присутствуют!!! 1. (Yes) Заметные (даже ооочень) геометрические искажения предметов на периферии кадра 2. (Yes) Нельзя принудительно включить макро(я по крайней мере не нашел). 3. (Yes) Затемнение нижнего левого угла в кадре при съемки со вспышкой при недостаточном освещении. 4. (Yes) Огромного размера видео, но ужасного качества!!! Спрашивается - зачем тогда тратить эти гигабайты!!! От меня могу добавить: 5. Использовать или нет...

  • Excerpt: очень разочарован качеством Sony. рассматривал данную модель как компакт в пару к sony alpha 450.... даже не знаю с чего начать: баланс белого в автомате ужасный, при съёмке в помещении дикие шумы и мазня - наверное можно вытянуть это ручными настройками, но компакт не для того берётся чтобы с ним колдовать. использую помимо 450й альфы кодак V1073 и старененький пентакс W20, даже на амфибии фото получаются лучше. не ожидал.
  • Pros: Режим night shot, хорошее макро, скоростная съёмка
  • Cons: баланс белого, шум, нет детализации фото

keine gute Wahl

15 January 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe mir die Sony WX5 nach sehr langer Recherche im Internet und Zeitschriften gekauft, da sie z.B. auch bei chip keinen schlechten platz belegte. positiv: - handlich, löst sehr schnell aus, hat viele funktionen, die panoramafunktion natürlich der hammer und für mich interessant war die serienbildfunktion: makellos negtiv: die sony wx5 macht auch ohne blitz ziemlich helle bilder (was eig auch nicht so schlecht is, da die farben eigentlich natürlich aussehen und man...

Viel Extras, Grundfunktionen dafür mangelhaft

Moorhuhn, Amazon
26 September 2010
  • Summary: Vorab: Ich bin kein Fotografie-Experte, aber genau für solche Leute wie mich sollte eine Kamera wie die DSC-WX5 dann ja gut geeignet sein mit den vielen automatischen Einstellungen, bei denen man sich nur noch um wenig kümmern muß. Als Experte hätte ich mir wohl eher eine Spiegelreflexkamera geholt. Mein Gesamteindruck ist sehr schlecht für eine aktuelle Kamera dieser Preisklasse.
