Buying used a bit of a mistake, but photo quality excellent
21 July 2013
Summary: I bought this used camera to replace my tx7, that I flooded in the marine housing last year. After checking out the housing, I determined the case had just popped open and was not actually defective, so wanted to get another camera that would fit the same us case. I took this camera to Saba and St Kitts trip and as far as picture quality, is great. The camera arrived quickly, looked beautiful and initially seemed to be a great purchase.
Camera has nice features, image quality is average at best

Summary: The camera itself is nice. A ton of features packed into a small camera. More options than you will ever use or need. My issue is with the image quality. It is average at best. Artifacts at ISO 100, high iso is basically not even usable. If you are looking for a camera with all of the bells and whistles, this is it. If you are looking for a camera with great image quality, this is not it.
Overpriced camera--buying the name brand I suppose

Summary: I am a huge Sony fan - I know people say its the brand name you are buying and there are other very comparable to better products, but when it comes down to the actual IMAGES produced, Sony is it. They are the BEST in my opinion in everything they create - it is why they get to attach a high price tag next to their products - its deserved. Quality is what you get. However, with this camera, I feel that wasn't the case.
Summary: I used a similar model of Sony Cybershot for about three years and was extremely happy with it, so I decided to go ahead and get another. The camera arrived about two weeks ago and I have been very happy with it. The other day I was carrying the camera alone in my pocket while I was at the museum with my daughter and when I got home I found deep scratches on the surface of the screen.
Summary: I bought this camera mainly because of the background defocus feature. This seems to be the only compact digital camera with that feature. We were very disappointed because it takes a lot of testing--zooming in, out, plus photographer & object must both be completely still for it to work. That's nearly impossible to achieve when you're photographing little kids.
Summary: Does anyone know why my camera says "PROCESSING" after every picture I take??? This is annoying! I just want to snap quick pictures without having to wait for "PROCESSING". I have tried changing every sitting on my camera and can't figure it out. Please help!!!
Summary: I got this camera for the 3D and the SLR mode. Not a whole lot of review where they touch on these things, so I will explain a little more about them. First the 3D, the 3D is not that great, nothing jumping out at you or anything. It just gives more depth into the picture that your looking at. Now the SLR or defocus mode. This only works with images really close and even that I only could get it to work 20% of the time.
