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.
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.
great as far as waterproofing, HORRIBLE Low light/flash pictures

Summary: I so wanted to love this camera....I needed a high quality waterproof camera that won't get ruined on the beach. This camera does that. But this cannot be my all around point and shoot. It takes absolutely horrible flash pictures. They are either very overexposed or under.
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.
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.
Summary: I've had this camera for about 3 months now. it is the only thing out there that is rugged, functional and sleek looking. Well done, Sony. So far the only issue was using it at a beach with not so fine sand and it got into the shutter and scratched up the front... lens is fine though...
Tolle Kamera - solange sie noch heile ist ... :-(((

Excerpt: 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...
Pros: handlich, technisch perfekt
Cons: NICHT robust : nach knapp 2 Jahren ohne ersichtlichen Grund vollständig defekt !
Summary: No voy a hablar de las características técnicas que ya se han explicado ampliamente en otras opiniones y estoy de acuerdo con todas ellas, simplemente voy a contar mi experiencia con la cámara.
