Summary: I was a little spooked at first by all the one star reviews here saying that the camera was not waterproof. However after our trip to Hawaii, the camera performed very well. We were actually amazed at all the different modes the camera had, and the touchscreen worked well above water.
Summary: Always wanted to purchase this camera, so on Black Friday, saw it on Amazon for $169.00 & grabbed it. I see there are a lot of people complaining the camera is not waterproof. So I decided to test out the waterproof effectiveness before my 30 day return policy ended.
Summary: The cameral worked great, until it feel off our kitchen counter. The little plastic bit that kept the battery compartment closed breoke off and Sony wants $285 to fix it. So, so disappointing that it was not durable and that it is so much to fix it.
Summary: Its a great small camera that takes beautiful pictures as well as fits comfortably in the pocket. The touch screen is not a problem as much as others have noted atleast to me (yes, I have been using touch screen phones and tablets for a long time!)
Summary: Just got this camera and so far it is far better than expected. I give 4 stars only because I have not yet tried the waterproof function. The video is incredibly sharp, great sound and has the option of taking stills while recording.
Summary: I just want to give a quick praise to this camera. I just did TM Tampa and this little camera did great! I put it in the camel back when I wasn't using it and it ended up sitting in water for an hour or so and worked just fine.
Summary: I got this product as a gift to my wife on Thanksgiving and Wedding Anniversary, and guess what? As soon as she opened the box she was happy and I could see a smile. But when I took this cam in my hand, I noticed a perfect blue pixel on perfect black screen.
Summary: It just arrived yesterday, and I have already taken lots of pics with it, including night shots (no wet, yet) and posted some on redbubble dot com (slash people slash cricket noel) and have received good feedback on the orchid shots.
