Summary: The vendor (Secondipity) who sold this is, in my opinion, not very friendly. I bought the camera in March with the intent of using it on my family trip. It was refurbished but the price was right so I gave it a shot. I tested the camera once before using it on my trip. It worked great.
Pros: I have no complaints about the functions of the camera. Used it twice and it worked great.
Cons: It can be a bit hard to use in direct sunlight as the viewer washes out.
Summary: We'very been using the camera for 3 weeks. We gave up and bought a Nikon. This Sony is okay as long as you're taking pictures inside. It's pretty muchard useless for pictures outside because you can't see the screen.
Summary: I was skeptical about this camera due to some comments about the low light difficulty. I am very happy with the purchase and have taken some excellent family portraits and indoor shots. I believe this was an excellent value and love the pictures I am getting.
Out of luck with this vendor if you have a warranty issue

Summary: Very disappointed with the POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM THIS VENDOR. Camera was purchased as a gift. After 2 months of use, it displayed an error message to 'insert memory card' after the memory card is replaced (after downloading images).
Summary: Love this camera. Been using for 6 months to take concert pix and video primarily. The video is amazing, the zoom is exactly what we needed for shows we aren't up close. My favorite feature about the camera is the low light sensor.
Summary: Good battery life. Fast GPS reception. Ok wifi skills and android app. Great zoom! Good price. Focusing on macro Items can sometimes be a little challenging. If you have patience and play with it it gets great shots though.
Summary: Don't even know all the features, but it takes quality pictures, better than prior Fuji 10 mega pixel
Pros: price, quality, features. Best feature is that it can take very good pictures in low light, without the flash, and the colors look good. I'm not a camera expert, read a good review after seeing this refurbed on sale. Am happy with the camera. Also, it will charge from the USB cable!
Cons: you won't have that "new" feeling. It didn't come with a case. Probably a reduced warranty, but i've never had much success with warranty service anyway.
Summary: I bought this camera on the recommendation of a friend who has the camera's predecessor. He gets terrific results in low light. This particular camera...not as much. Defocus does not work particularly well unless you're right on top of your subject.
