IF you are buying the M4 to shoot 4K videos -- do not

Summary: IF you are buying the M4 to shoot 4K videos -- do not! Yes, you can shoot for 5 minutes. BUT how long is your camera dead before it has cooled enough to be able to be turned on? You can't even turn it on to switch-out of 4K or to take a still.
Summary: There's a lot to like about this camera but I bought it for its 4K video recording capability. Sadly, within a few minutes of use I realized it wasn't the right tool for the job. During a sunny afternoon, I recorded several short clips (10-20 seconds) but within about 8 minutes got an "overheating"...
Summary: Camera is made in China and the language setting is in Chinese. You can change it, but need to get online and figure it out, or have someone that reads Mandarin help you! These cameras come from both Japan and China. People say the Japanese one is sharper.
Can't get video off camera without dropped frames & audio every 10 minutes.

Summary: Overall, I like this camera, but I was bitten by a really nasty flaw. If you record video that exceeds 4GB (about 10 minutes at 1080P60), the video is broken into 4GB files, even if you use the exFAT file system that allows larger files.
Summary: The ready green light was always on even though the battery was dead, tried 2 other batteries and it did the same, so the product was defective. Amazon refunded me the purchased price and I ordered another one from a different seller
The seven pictures I took with it looked great, however it would not record movies.

Summary: I took 7 indoor pictures and they all looked great! When I tried to record a movie an error message came up saying that it could not record in the movie format selected, but the correct settings were missing from the menu!. I returned the camera the same day it arrived.
Received OPEN BOX camera. no one replied from seller side

Summary: This is not a camera review, but a bundle review. All we know that camera is great. This bundle is pretty fine, esp. products labeled Sony (photo bag, card and camera). Other items are pretty cheap, though they might be useful (like card reader or batteries).
Excerpt: Camera worked great for 5 days of moderate use until the lens froze in the extended position after taking an image in "sweep" panorama mode, rendering the camera inoperable. Found another report of a similar failure by googling "Sony RX100 lens jammed". Perahps a design or manufacturing defect.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Excerpt: there is a lot to like here, but in general i think this camera is not a good value. the big plus is the controls, which i think are really well thought out. and the mirrorless system makes the shutter speed nice and fast, so that the time between pictures is close to 0. but the focus is soft.
Pros: Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
