buttons don't work anymore

Barbara Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera three years ago and it's been fine. However - a couple years ago I started to notice that when I wanted to review my shots the button seemed to stick so that it would fly through all the pictures - I could stop it, but never where I wanted.

  • Summary: Camera stopped working while at SeaWorld, the main board was fried. I took it to a local shop since I bought it 15 months ago and they told me it would be over 400 dollars to fix, took it to another shop for a second opinion with the same results. , I can get a new camera for a little more.

User Review

Thomas Hagerty, Cnet.co.uk
30 September 2010
  • Summary: Just bought the camera and used it to shoot video. After 9 min of shooting the camera goes into a safe mode due to overheating. Apparently due to a faulty image sensor design it overheats at about 9 mins with the image stabilization on. If you turn it off, it extends for 29 min.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Overheats when shooting video

Fehlkonstruktion

Charly, Amazon
30 November 2014
  • Summary: Tja, das ist halt Sony. Ein Laden ohne jegliche Fotokamerherstellertradition, da alle Patente bei Reflexen von Minolta übernommen, auch Techniker. Immer mehr unnütze Technik in viel zu kleine Gehäuse einzubauen, hat natürlich seinen Preis i.d. praktischen Daueranwendung (u.a. Überhitzung).
