Sony support is horrible
4 September 2015
Summary: I want to make sure this gets to the top of the review list.... Great camera, great pictures. There's nothing to say really other than the fact that Sony engineers squeezed in an unbelievable array of technology into a very small space to allow you to take great pictures.
Summary: Based on my own research and the many positive reviews, I was really looking forward to receiving this camera. One look at the lens was sufficient for me to return it the same day. The lens showed significant spotting (see picture -- btw, the specs are definitely NOT dust).
Excerpt: I got it 6 months ago. We just returned from a 1-week Disney Cruise with the g-kids and the LED screen stopped working. I sent it in for warranty repair...and got it back today "un-repaired due to signs of corrosion".
Summary: The specs/capabilities of the M4 are wonderful on paper. Unfortunately, if you planned on using this cam for videos, be warned. Each new model of the RX100 has gotten exponentially worse with it's overheating issue to the point now that the M4 is virtually unusable.
version it has no warranty a cheap wall charger and will not record in 60p it records in 50p which is pretty useless unless you

Summary: This is not the U.S. version it has no warranty a cheap wall charger and will not record in 60p it records in 50p which is pretty useless unless you want to convert all your video also if it malfunctions sony of america will not fix must be sent back to japan for repairs good luck sent mine back...
Summary: I bought this camera and when I opened it there was no documentation inside, (no product warranty , no instruction manual) . There was a small box inside for the documents but it was empty and had only Japanese written on the box . I suspect this is a camera meant for the Asian market.
Summary: Camera stopped working after 8 months and sent in for warranty repair. Sony claims it was damaged and voided the warranty. As an avid amateur photographer I have had no problems with previous cameras and say this is baloney. The best Sony will do is replace it for $279 (they say that's generous).
Summary: After less than a year it stopped working. Not problem, send it in. SONY WON'T HONOR THE WARRANTY saying it was abused. Not so with the last three cameras I used and shot over 10,0000 pictures with. I upgraded to this model because of articles and reviews. The camera is great and functions well.
Nice camera - when it doesn't malfunction, which is ofter

Summary: I bought this package in August of 2013, paying almost $600. For the first 6 months or so, this seemed like a very good camera. Better pictures than any other digital camera I've ever owned. In fact, I bought a leather case for it since I expected to own it for a long time.
Excerpt: Third time is a charm, so they say. After returning two of this camera, I'm awaiting the arival of yet a third as the first two would not take a charge right out of the box. Adorama service is easy and seamless, thank goodness, but it's a bit frustrating to not have this camera in my hands and...
