"Sony told me to buy something better"2.5 starson by sallyandthecat
Pros: Large view screen
Love the colour (red)
Cons: Full Zoom unstable without tripod
Disappointed with quality of images
No viewer (eye to camera)
Sony lowered the RRP $100 a few weeks after I bought it
Summary: Paid $A408 for this camera at the Sony shop in Singapore in June this year. Supposedly 'on sale'. Upgrading from my Canon IXUS 8015 (I thought) and was disappointed in comparison shots taken with the two cameras. I conacted Sony to comment on the comparisons and was basically told that I bought an entry level camera and should have bought something better so why did I not go back to the store and upgrade!! VERY disappointing. The High res does not improve the quality - my 2Mb shots on the Canon are as good as the 8Mb ones on the Sony and are not stuffing my photos folder fullof additional data. Wish I had not wasted my $400.
