camera received was not one ordered

Summary: I was very unhappy with Ezcorp. I ordered this camera, the order slip in the box referred to this camera, but the camera was DIFFERENT. It was an inferior model in every way. I won't do business with them again!
Summary: I bought the Cybershots in the first place for their great zoom and compact body, but this is the second one I've had in 4 years stop working entirely. This one lasted just more than a year. I do not drop them or treat them harshly - I take very good care of my possessions. The first one the light sensor went out, this time the ability to focus has died. I have to be done with Sony, it upsets me too much to have to replace my camera every year.
Summary: It was an expensive camera for the quality. The lens makes a click noise when it comes out or goes in. Don't like that. The picture quality is also not good on flash. Creates a yellowish image at night on white. Color is an issue. If you have the money, and do not mind a regular DSLR, go for that. Get a Canon or Nikon. This is only good for daylight pics and when you need a small camera that will fit in your back pocket. No more. EXPENSIVE.
Summary: I dropped my old Sony camera and it wouldn't power up. After owning two Sony digital cameras and two Sony camcorders over the years I hoped the DSC W690 would be just as likeable as a replacement. It was not. To play back a photo to view it immediately would show "Accessing" on the screen first for several seconds. This is annoying and my prior cameras did not do this. Using in autofocus mode for anything moving was also a problem.
Bin ich die Einzige, die ein englisches Produkt erhalten hat?

Summary: In der Beschreibung von Amazon wird mit keiner Silbe erwähnt, dass sowohl die Menüführung als auch die mitgelieferte Anleitung nur in englischer, spanischer, italienischer oder französischer Sprache verfügbar sind. Das ist sicherlich nicht für alle ein Problem aber für mich in diesem Fall schon, da sie ein Geschenk sein sollte. Eine deutsche Anleitung habe ich im Internet bereits gefunden, aber die englische Menüführung ändert sich dadurch auch nicht.
