Takes lousy pictures. Very blah, with very little zip of any type. Skip this dog.

Summary: This takes some pretty lousy pictures. I had the wx300, which I gave to my son, and decided to upgrade. Not even in the same league. Taking pictures with any type of light points in them will cause and orb and red streaks to appear. Pictures are very blah, lacking any type of zip. Save your money, find an older wx300 in the pawn shop, and skip this dog.
Summary: Unbelievably difficult wifi/transfer. This is the most frustrating piece of technology I've encountered in quite a while. What should be a simple thing has been bloated and complicated beyond belief by Sony. I spent hours trying to figure out how to transfer photos with wifi, and it basically doesn't work. You have to install Sony's PlayMemories software on the devices you want to use it. The computer app download is over 230mb!
Summary: Ordered kit cam quickly enough. I have had two prior Sony point and shoot cameras. The documentation with this camera is awful. I used the printed guide as well as the online help guide and after 3 hours still could not get the wireless transfer of photos to work. Even took a long time to get the USB connected transfer to work. I'm no IT person, but I'm no digital neophyte either. I'm send the whole kit back. UPDATE: just chatted online with Sony Rep..
Excerpt: Cant figure out what all the rave reviews are about. Camera has washed out flash, yellow orange cast to everything, poor resolution, and contrast that wipes out fine luminance gradients. Sent it back. Not worth the money.
Summary: First time ever I returned a product because it did not meet expectations. The size was nice. The zoom was nice. The image quality at fine jpg was disappointing and pixelated. For this price I expected more. Beach Camera gets 5 stars for their return process. I ended up buying another product from them (a Sony RX-100 bundle). It's heavier and almost too big for a pocket camera but worth the extra money. It's a keeper.
Summary: I have only used this camera on auto. Asked for a printed manual but refused by Sony so I don't know about all the features. It has taken hours to get cash-back and so far, the cash-back hasn't come.
