Summary: We needed a camera that could handle our upcoming honeymoon trip to Costa Rica and this camera delivered with flying colors. We do a lot of outdoors activities - hiking, kayaking, etc., so needed something small, durable & waterproof, but I didn't want to give up picture quality. This camera fills all those reqs to a T. When it comes to cameras, I'm a point & shoot person. I don't know about white balance, shutter speed, etc.
Excerpt: I use this camera for 3 months now. On trips, underwater and everyday also. Before this i used a Canon Ixus 220 HS. I bought this camera because of the underwater and video functions. I knew that i will have to make compromises, but maybe too many. Satisfied: - picture quality - weight and dimension - panorama mode is amazing, i love it - appearance - video quality - low light I recommend this camera for those who does extreme sports and need a camera more rough than...
Summary: This camera is great for water sports or activities! The only problem is that once not using it in the water, there are water spots on the lens, which come through in all my average pics. I had bought this to be an all purpose everyday pocket camera, but unfortunately it just became an expensive water camera. I love the panoramic feature, but can't find any place by me that is capable of printing such sizes, so have to have them special ordered online.
Summary: I received my camera six months ago. I loved the camera and took excellent care of it. I never opened the doors while the camera was exposed to water and always dried it off and checked for sand in the seals. I never took it deeper than six feet. I was in Hawaii last month and the camera quit. When I returned home I mailed the camera to the sony service center and was finally informed that there was corrosion in the camera and that had voided the warranty.
Summary: I took this camera to AUSTRALIA and the camera broke after 4 days into my trip! It is NOT waterproof! NOT WATERPROOF! I had a camera professional look at the camera and water got into the camera through a seal. Sony explained it is not covered under warranty. I bought this camera on August 21 started using the camera on the 1st and the 4th broken. Too expensive since it was double to replace. SONY ruined my vacation and I could not get another camera.
Summary: After researching waterproof cameras, I came upon this little gem of a camera. Wow! The clarity is superb, video quality is awesome and I would highly recommend for anyone looking to purchase a waterproof camera. The start up time that most people complain about is no big deal. The only problem I have with this camera is the fact that they don't send you a charger to charge the battery outside of the camera. Stupid little accessory you need to purchase.
Summary: I purchased this camera in April of 2011 shortly after it was released by Sony. I did not really get to use it until more than a month later on a trip where it was mainly used as an underwater camera. I closely followed all of the manufacturers instructions on keeping it clean and watertight. The cameral was never in more than 3 feet deep. The camera failed miserably. Many of the pics came out with millions of white spots and no focus.
Sony proprietary USB cable meant no vacation photos..

Summary: The camera takes fantastic photos and video for its size. Easy and fun to use and you simply can't beat the shutter lag (IE: it takes fast photos). Haven't tested the waterproofness yet, but from other reviews sounds like you don't want to push your luck. My only complaint, and the reason I rated this a 3 instead of 5 is the proprietary USB cable connection needed for charging.
Summary: If you are looking for a camera to catch what you've always missed at the beach - because you feared you'd damage your 'good camera'... you need this one. We spent 2 weeks at the beach and took more than 3,000 photos (burst mode ensured we didn't miss a thing - but spent a lot of time deleting dupes). It's instant video mode is fantastic and the quality is perfect for the money. Well done Sony, my loyalty is again - well placed!
