Summary: When I bought this, I just wanted a point-and-shoot camera that took better pics than my iPhone 4S (which I don't think takes very good quality pics), since my Canon PowerShot SD850 IS, which took great pics, all the sudden stopped focusing for no reason. I guess I shouldn't have expected too much of this Sony because of the price, but enough people were saying it took good pics that I went ahead and bought it. The pictures are definitely not better than my iPhone.
Summary: I guess you get what you pay for, although I expected more from sony. I have had this for about 6 months and it just stopped working. It was never that great, it often took pictures leaving horizontal pink lines throughout the bottom of the pic. It does have some fun features (beautifying, kind of like a little instant airbrush to faces) and panoramic. It also takes a long time to process in between each shot.
Summary: the video bitrate is too low. the audio quality is below 44.1khz. crap stacked on top of crap. sufficient for low quality videos. its no dslr camera thats for sure. im sure its good enough for some people. i decided to return it.
Summary: I let the fancy packaging draw me to this camera, and I'm so disappointed with my purchase. The time it takes to see your photo in the screen is ridiculous, and all the photos are fuzzy. Can't blame it on user error as many others have used the camera. Everything is fuzzy. My priceless photos are down the drain. Next time I'll be more careful, and for now, I'm going back to my old camera.
Summary: This model seems so old. Thick in size and LAGS when taking a picture. Press the button to take a picture and wait 10 seconds for the device to actually capture picture. This is the first sony model I did not like. Low quality camera.
Summary: Was not pleased to receive this phone because it has pink on the facing side and black on the other. Just who does that? But if they do, then they should let the consumer know that. It also has a very cheap feel. Can't believe it's a Sony product. I have bought several Sony cams, but it's time t start branching out to other models.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace another one that broke, it will NOT charge!! It charged the first time I used it, but has not since that time. I think it's a piece of junk and would NOT recommend it to anybody looking to purchase it. I love Sony brand cameras, but stay AWAY from this one!
Excerpt: Автоматика выбирает режимы некорректно. Панорамы - это вообще тихий ужас - сплошная муть и никакого интеллекта касательно артефактов. При дневном свете фотки неплохие, но кого этим удивишь? В сумерках только вспышка иначе результат отвратительный. Честно говоря от модели с индексом 710 и 16 мегапиксельной матрицей ожидал куда больше, а оказалось что оно снимает хуже тех моделей, который SONY выпускал 3-4 года назад и у которых было 7-8 мегапикселей.
Summary: L'ho comprata per avere qualcosa di meglio delle solite foto fatte con il cellulare, ma devo dire che la scelta non si e' rivelata vincente. La macchina non e' in grado di bilanciare i bianchi e le temperature colore sono perennemente sbagliate: foto con dominanti colorate che rendono necessario il fotoediting. Se la cava bene solo in esterni senza flash.
