Summary: I never really liked the camera that much. Bought it at Costco where I was advised it had a great lens. Some pic quality was excellent but to me it seemed inconsistent. Admittedly I am a novice. The telephoto adjustment was very difficult to use and 2 years 5 months later the telephoto lens stopped working mechanically and the camera froze up. It's disposed of now. I haven't been impressed with Sony's overpriced products for some time now.
Summary: I have had this camera for several years now and it works great. I take pictures of the wedding cakes I have made and delivered and all pictures have turned out great. I will buy again when I need another camera.
Summary: I bought 2 of these cameras for my 10 & 12 yr old daughters. It was easy for them to use, great picture/video quality, and they have lasted years. I would buy this camera again (just haven't needed to).
