Ruined my cruise photos :(

Summary: I could not be more unhappy with this purchase. I bought this camera to take on a once in a lifetime cruise. The small size and simple point/shoot operation were quite attractive to me. The camera worked fine for the first day of my trip. By Day 2, it developed a black spot that showed up in any photos that were zoomed in to any degree. A number of my photos are ruined as a result.
Summary: this camera when you turned it on to the actual time to be able to use teh camera was counting 30 seconds. I was waiting to wait to take a photo! I would never use this camera and sent it back after 2 days of having it! Never buy this version!
Summary: I had a comparable Nikon that unfortunately went for a swim. I bought this thinking "sony, how bad can it be?"Pretty bad. Under any lighting it takes really inferior pictures, and the battery that comes with it lasts about an hour and it's done. Then you have to remove it and place it in a docking station. Very inconvenient. Bottom line, it's a poor product compared to comparably priced models from Canon or Nikon.
Summary: Lamentablemente la cámara nunca funcionó, aunque la caja estuvo en buen estado, la cámara no funcionó,cuando lo revisó el servicio técnico Sony vio que la tarjeta principal estaba rota, lo cual tiene un costo igual al de la cámara en si misma, una pésima experiencia
Summary: I just returned this camera to the store and ordered a new (different brand) camera online....the Sony camera took horrible pictures when in zoom mode...night pictures of Christmas lights were blurry and had a halo effect. The flash didn't even work have the time when I used it inside (and yes, it was set to be on). Autofocus is EXTREMELY slow! Also, the panoramic pictures has large grey areas on the sides even when I moved the camera the entire way around 360 degrees!
Summary: I took about 50 photos at various zooms and noticed that the colors are all bunched and there is no depth or object clarity. I own a HX200V and a waterproof TX20 and happy with them. I bought this for my wife as she is travelling alone and would love a point-n-shoot. I wish I had this from Amazon as I never had any issues with Amazon.
Summary: WHY CAN'T I GIVE NEGATIVE STARS? DON'T BUY THIS OR ANY OTHER SONY CAMERA!!!!! Sony makes crap cameras and their support will accuse you of breaking it. Purchase from a respectable camera maker like Canon, Nikon, or Fuji. I bought this for snorkeling and it corrupted my memory card on the first trip. OK, $10,000 trip with no pictures, because the camera corrupted the memory. Called Sony and they blamed the memory. Got two new memory cards for the next trip.
Summary: Ok, I bought this camera last week (2 days ago my first child was born), was excited to take pics of the baby with new camera. The only reason I selected this model was the 10x optical zoom feature which I thought was awesome. I liked the slim look of the camera but when I started using it, the happiness didn't last long. First of all, when you switch it to playback mode to view the pics, it takes like 5-8 seconds to load the images from memory.
