Summary: THIS AUCTION IS FOR 3 CAMERS. YOU CAN SEE THE PICTURE THE SELLER PUT UP. 3 CAMERAS. AFTER I BUT THE CAMERAS, THE SELLER SENT ME ONE CAMERA. AFTER I ASK HIM WERE MY OTHER TWO CAMERAS ARE. HE TOLD ME ONLY ONE SO WHY DIDN'T I GET THE PICK OF THE 3 CAMERAS ' STAY AWAY FROM THE EBAYER, HIS IS A NUT EBAYER. YOU SEE THIS PICTURE ON THIS PAGE OF A CAMERA. I DIDN'T EVEN GET THIS ONE. I GOT ME A LOW GOOD ONE.
Summary: The camera died 1year and 2 weeks after I finished paying for it. I am heart sick. My old Sony still works but the pictures don't have the sharp, crisp pictures. My old one went to Ireland and the pics are good. This one went Maryland and died. I am so heart sick I am near tears.
Summary: This camera malfunctioned for me the third time I used it ($145 new on AMAZON)...The viewfinder showed a bunch of "lines" and no picture.....I contacted SONY Repair and sent the camera back...They told me that somehow, the camera was damaged and that it would cost me $214 to get it fixed!!!!!..Warranty would not cover it....This was only the third time I used this camera and it was never dropped or even laid on a hard surface....
Summary: I have had two of these cameras and both broke within a couple of months. With the first camera after a couple days of heavy use the lens would not retract. I returned and got a replacement within a couple days. The replacement camera worked great for a few weeks and took great pictures. Then after a few weeks of the camera not being used I go to use it and the internal LCD screen was cracked.
Summary: I am a long time camera user and have had point and shoots as well as DSLRs with hefty lenses. I bought this for my g/f but was very disappointed in the picture. The picture was constantly over-exposed and the color was shifted significantly toward the warm or cool based on what you were shooting. I even tried HDR mode to try to control the over-exposure but that didn't help. The interface to the camera was annoying. The spin wheel is small and it also acts as a button.
DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN YOU NEVER DROP IT, EVEN FROM A LOW HEIGHT.

Summary: I have never written a negative review but I cannot tell you how dissatisfied I am with the product design of this camera and the Sony company. Its no wonder they are losing market share like crazy in consumer electronics. I own two perfectly worthless DX9 cameras because Sony will not own up to design defects in the camera.
