10 December 2014
Summary: Camera has great zoom but its not very consistent at all as fat as focus to produce sharp images..another problem is the flash, its in a bad spot, the camera is small and your finger may block the flash and when you do move your finger to allow the flash it overexposes the image...
Summary: I ordered this product, and I returned it because I didn't like it at all. I had WX7 before it, and I expected the same quality in this camera, but it was nothing similar to my WX7. This one is way bigger and heavier (even the battery is much heavier). It doesn't fit in the pocket easily.
Summary: Perhaps Amazon got a bad batch of cameras, as my experience echo's the previous review. Photos are average at best, but the video is absolutely terrible. The video from my Sony TX20 looks clearer and sharper than this camera.
Summary: I was very disappointed in this camera. At first glance images seemed okay, but once viewed on a computer monitor, the images looked blatantly unnatural and pasty. I tried all of the available modes and settings and could not get the pictures to come out any better.
Excerpt: excess contrast disappointing resolution, poor color gradients, red-orange casts, washed out flash pics. I need a camera that takes good pics,not full of gadgets. Underperforms my 6 yr old Pentax p/s, way too expensive.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life
Cons: Complicated Controls, Poor Image Quality, Poor in Low Light
Summary: I'm in the market for a camera introduced in 2014, so I bought both this and the Canon SX700 HS. The Canon took gorgeous pictures but I wasn't too happy with the low light quality so I bought this Sony thinking the superior sensor would do the trick.
Disappointed - no reason to upgrade from the WX300 - no background defocus

Summary: After using this camera a few days, the "delete" button as well as the flash button have been acting strange. I don't treat my cameras roughly, so I think this may be defective. I don't think "it's me" since I know my way around most cameras in general.
Not a great camera when comparing against Nikon Coolpix 8000

Summary: The controls are poor quality. The picture quality when used inside is poor for this type of camera. My current Nikon 8000 is better and I was hoping to replace it with the Sony, but I sent it back. Dissapointed in all of the parts really.
