Summary: I bought this camera for a gift to my sister, but it shows a dark strip on it LCD after I purchased it about one month. Try to send it back to sony for repairing, but they are very hard to communicate. They promised a shipping label for free shipping, but never send it my email after I fill all the repair documents they need. I used to bought a couple of sonny cameras and camcorders, they works fine for me.
Summary: This camera takes AMAZING pictures, always crisp and clear, excellent focus, but unfortunately has one fatal flaw--- the battery. The first time I bought it (from Best Buy) it worked wonderfully for about two months, then one day the battery said "exhausted" and never turned back on, even after I tried to charge it multiple times.
Summary: I enjoyed the camera when I first got it. Decent features and good pictures. But after about a month, I can safely say that it is the worst camera that I have ever owned. On a recent trip to Southern Europe I took three cameras: a Nikon 7000, a Nikon AW100, and the Nex-F3. All cameras, except the F3 did well. The F3 deleted a bunch of my pictures! After driving for hours to get the ultimate shots of the Rock of Gibraltar, it turned out the pictures were gone!!!
