Worked fantastic, until....

Phil Reed, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: Used it for 2 years, works or worked fantastic, last hiking (April 2013) trip the lens started vibrating uncontrollably, now cannot take any photo's at all. I googled the problem and found many many forums discussing (complaining) about this; I expect a digital camera to last more than 2 yrs. ps - the lens isn't vibrating today as it rests in a drawer...go figure.

Camera image stablelizer failed after 1.5 years

Mei Shen, Amazon

  • Summary: I have this camera for about 1.5 years. It has been great taken pictures near waterfalls, damp places, in pool water and very easy to carry and use. The paint on the cover started to chip away little by little about 8 months into usage. But that is not important to me since it does not impacting the images. But today, the real problem happened! Halfway into my hiking, the camera started to shake whenever I turn it on. I can hear the motor turning sound in the camera.

  • Summary: Nice looking camera but it took water on our trip to Hawaii. I bought this for my 15 year old daughter and we were very impressed with the photos, on-screen menus, the styling and photo features like the auto=panoramic feature.
  • Pros: Photos quality, on-screen menus, the styling and photo features like the auto=panoramic feature.
  • Cons: It took water and stopped working on a very special family trip to Hawaii.

Poor Quality and warrenty service

Mary, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera because of the good reviews on speed and because of the waterproof and crushproof properties. When I first got the camera it was fantastic - good speed, great touch screen, sleek design - overall thought it was a great camera, although a little on the pricey side. Only 1 month later, and 2 trips in the water and the camera would not turn on, even after attempting to charge the battery several times.

  • Summary: Ich habe die SONY Mitte 2010 gekauft. Mir war wichtig, eine gute und vor allem robuste Kamera zu kaufen. Dafür war ich auch bereit, relativ viel Geld auszugeben. Die Investition sollte mir lange Freude machen... Dachte ich... Der Spaß hat 23 Monate gedauert. In dieser Zeit habe ich wirklich viel Freude mit der Kamera gehabt: Sie macht Super-Bilder, erkennt jede Situation und stellt sich vollautomatisch richtg ein (manuelle Einstellungen (manchmal braucht man sie eben...
  • Pros: handlich, technisch perfekt
  • Cons: NICHT robust :  nach knapp 2 Jahren ohne ersichtlichen Grund vollständig defekt  !
