Worst pocket camera I've ever had
T. Nofziger "Tyler Traveler", Amazon
7 March 2014
Summary: I've had probably 4-5 small pocket cams over the years to compliment my Canon DSLR's and cannot believe how terrible the shots are from this camera. Indoor shots are basically impossible. Everything turns out grainy and blurry. I'm not sure if I should give up pocket cameras all together or try again with a different model or brand. The positive reviews on here absolutely shock me.
WARNING Sony & Distributor do not stand by the product
Laurie Reinbolt, Amazon
30 December 2013
Summary: I highly recommend that you do not buy this camera as the manufacture and the distributor DO NOT stand by their product. I purchased this camera in March 2013 and by November 2013 the screen stopped working. I contacted the distributor and they told me there was nothing they could do for me and I should contact Sony.
Summary: After just over a year of use, getting error E:62:10, which Sony will only fix if I give them $91. On top of that, when I take a picture and then immediately look at it, it is rotated 90 degrees. I've Initialized the camera, formatted the memory card, tried tapping the battery side, and every other solution I can find online and nothing works. This camera has been a huge disappointment. Do not buy.
Summary: I should have returned this camera as soon as I got it. I have not had too much chance to dislike it since after less than 3 months it has stopped working entirely and I have to pay to ship it to Sony. Amazon would not give me a merchandise credit for another model as I requested. This camera takes forever between shots,and has a slow shutter speed, so is useless to capture my kids during their sports events.
Summary: Frustrating. 1. don't count on using the background defocus. It's fickle. It worked maybe 5% of the time and even then, it focused on the wrong image. 2. If you have a Mac, have fun. You can't upload videos to iPhoto. You have to use iMovie or upload to your computer, purchase special software from Apple's site to convert files to view them in Quicktime. 3. The battery drains so fast. It's astonishing. 4. The battery takes FOR...EVER... to charge. 5.
