Summary: I got this camera brand new factory sealed about 2 years ago. I've taken quite good care of it, haven't even taken 700 pictures (and about half of all the pictures I took were in one single day). And today I turn it on, and the display is not working - all but about the rightmost 15% of the display is totally messed up, rendering the camera pretty much useless, and reinstalling the battery and SD card does nothing to help. Can't even navigate the setup screens.
Summary: Let me tell you my story. I took the camera out of the box, charged up the dead batter and proceeded to take 4 photos with the camera. Immediately went to my computer, hooked up the USB cable and tried to transfer said photos. But my computer would not recognize the camera, no big deal right? I downloaded the drivers and some crappy software Sony had specifically for the camera. Still nothing so I go ahead and try a different USB port and cable with no luck.
Summary: it was nice once I opened the package till I started using the camera. I gave this rate becuz it didnt meet my expectations. I would not recommend it to anyone... becuz it was having problems closing when pressing the on/off click.
Summary: My lens got stuck in the camera after 2 months of owning it and Sony tried to charge me 150 euro to have it fixed, which was the same price as the camera, so I told them to keep it.I would not recommend this camera as I dont think they are in any way durable enough.
Summary: I bought this because its former version sony DSCW530, about the same price, however, now I found that this one is much worse, the picture taken is quite blur, keys on it are not well designed, its lens is much worse than carl cais, I will not recommend it,rubbish article, really!
Excerpt: Наверное, неплохой будет аппарат для путешествий. Маленький размер позволит носить в кармане. Ещё бы не фирменный аккумулятор...
Pros: Компактный. Симпатичный.
Cons: Очень сильно мылит картинку. Я раньше не думал, что вообще можно так мылить. При съёмке в помещении люди превращаются в мультипликационных персонажей. Функция распознавания улыбки не всегда работает, потому что в большинстве случаев электроника просто не распознаёт человеческое лицо. Очень маленькие неудобные кнопки. Долго думает перед каждым снимком. Снимать детей и животных не получится.
