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...

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.

Total Junk.

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...

FISHBOWL!!!!!

  • 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!

  • Summary: 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.

  • 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 недост...

  • 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...
  • Pros: Режим night shot, хорошее макро, скоростная съёмка
  • Cons: баланс белого, шум, нет детализации фото

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.
