"Many positives with a few annoying problems."3.0 starson by Oliphant11
Pros: Quick, great photo quality, light and compact.
Cons: Control wheel on the back is far too sensitive and often gets triggered by mistake in the middle of a photo opportunity.
Sony's customer service is lacking. Buy from a store rather than directly from Sony - where you can get immediate help.
Summary: This camera replaces my 4-yr old Sony DSC-W150 (bath in the ocean). I often shoot one-handed while doing something else like climbing, rafting or kayaking (risky as I found out). The control wheel on the back is way too easy to move and frequently as I go to take a picture I find myself staring at some choice of an alternative shooting mode I did not intended to make because some part of my hand has touched the wheel. Many missed shots. I'm thinking of ways to immobilize this wheel. My old camera had a similar wheel but never was a problem.
I bought the camera directly from Sony and it came with a defective battery. I had to buy a second battery to use the camera and after more than a month since I mailed in the bad battery, Sony has not replaced it. A big thumbs down on their customer service.
Go to a store to see if the selection wheel on the back gives you any problems and buy where you can get help if you have a problem.
