Yao Li, Amazon
25 July 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this camera around 3 years ago. After very low level of use ~ once or twice a year, I got a frozen screen with "camera error" on screen every time I take a picture. I have tried removing the battery, changing the card, turning it off and on etc, none of them works.

Outstanding picture quality, but video design defect persists even after repair

Tech Dude "Dude", Amazon
10 February 2012
  • Summary: This camera has a well-documented design defect that others have commented on, in particular, a very noticeable "clicking" noise in the audio track when you do video recording. The defect does not affect the picture quality of still images or video, but it does make the video recording feature...

Defective after Sony Repair

S. Smith, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: This is my second 5n. My first was returned before being aware of the Service Call issued by Sony for the clicking issue. I sent the first one for an exchange and then found out about the call. Immediately upon receiving my exhange I sent the body in for the click repair.

No Sequential Ordering for Video Files!!!

bj "b", Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: You buy a $600 camera and the stupid developers can't even implement sequential file numbers for video files--only photos. So when you clean off all your video files, the numbering starts over again at 00000.MTS! Just another reason developers suck, because they are lazy.

DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA

wheresaldo, Amazon
8 October 2011
  • Summary: I purchased the camera yesterday not knowing the it was defective with a clicking noise when making movies... the clicking is horrible, but most horrible is that Sony has not recalled the cameras and still selling them. I didn't pay $700 to get a defective camera that needed to be fixed.

  • Excerpt: Все было прекрасно аж целый ГОД, но в один прекрасный момент, включаю камеру, а мне "Вставьте снова карту памяти". Вынул - вставил - а мне опять "Вставьте снова карту памяти". Поехал в официальный сервис-центр на Горбушке. Там все пафосно и круто, даже электронная очередь есть - ну Сони ежкин кот!
  • Pros: 1. Качество снимков и видео. 2. Габариты. При всех прочих равных они близки к мыльнице (конечно с оговорками), но зеркалки значительно больше. 3. Цена.
  • Cons: 1. Байонет Е. Это значит, что парк оптики замыкается на изделия Sony, которая вообщем то не особо выдающаяся. 2. Удобство управления не особо. Сенсорный экран под большим вопросом, особенно в свете того, что не во всех меню он работает. 3. Громкий звук затвора, кому то может и прикольно, но как т...

  • Excerpt: В общем, вся эта компактность и миниатюрность просто ни к чему. Камера уже из-за объектива не может быть компактом, а с прикрученной вспышкой тем более. Выглядит все-таки крайне уродски, хотя, сестре нравится.
  • Pros: Режим панорама и работа в этом режиме понравилась. Увы. Всё.
  • Cons: Из недостатков в первую очередь стоит отметить матрицу низкого качества. Матрица начинает шуметь довольно сильно уже начиная с ISO 800. Про более высокие ISO можно забыть сразу. Опять же, что касается ISO не понравилось то, что его можно либо установить на каком-то конкретном значении, либо дать ...
