    I purchased this camera only 6 months ago. It was terrific! Beautiful pictures, very portable, adorable design, love the touch screen and all the features! I didn't even use it that much, carefully carried it around on a vacation and a couple of family reunions. Now, 6 months after I had this, the touch screen just all of a sudden went pitch black! Teh camera trurns on, you can take pictures, zoom, anything, but you cannot see a thing on the screen... I contacted local sony support (I live outside the US), and they say the screen is done and needs replacing. I never dropped the camera, never handled it roughly, it doesn't even have a scratch, it looks new! I can only wonder how come the screen went dark if i didn't drop it...
    Tech guys tell me that repairing it will cost TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS!! (which by the way is only 25$ short of what I paid, as I got it on sale, and half of what it costs now)...

    So disappointing, how can it be dead after almost no use and only 6 months!!! I was also told that the warranty may not cover this.

    In short, I love travel. I always have at least two cameras with me. But I needed a camera for those times that I didn't want to look like a tourist, but I still wanted great photos. You know, those dress-up events and such. Or even those wonderful photo oportunities that you may stumble upon. This camera covered the need precisely. It has some features that even my larger cameras don't have like Face Detection. My only real advice to anyone who buys the camera is that you ALWAYS use the hand strap. This is a tiny camera that has a touch sensive screen with many buttons on the camera's edges. So you have to gingerly hold it and it may slip from such a grip. Otherwise, this is a GREAT camera that can fit into a pocket. But do get the Sony brand carry case. You can use it or leave it behind. But always store the camera in this case to protect the viewscreen. And be very aware to keep the lens over the flash clean. Any "gunk" over this screen can be heated up by the flash to a permanent coating that will change the flash values. And may I also add, the time from "power on" to first picture is very brief. That's important to me.

    Very nice, solid unit - with excellent image capture and stabilization.

    Unfortunately I can't see the details yet because I got it used and there was no patch-cord with the unit.

    The patch cord I ordered separately after the camera arrived, and it kind of bugged me that I had to do that.

    If you DO find one used, it's well worth having, but be sure it comes with
    1) A charger
    2) A battery
    3) An upload/download patch cable.

    *There is an optional 4 Gb memory card available for it, but the unit has 12 Mb of internal storage out of the box. I will send for one of those next month...

    I've owned 3 of these cameras. Unfortunately, two of them fell into the water (my fault) on canoe trips. I did manage to retrieve the 1st camera, but it didn't work very well because of the water damage. I lost the second one in a lake to never be found again.
    I loved the Sonys' so much because of their quality, that I wanted another one. This time I won't be taking it out on the water unless I have the waterproof cover on it.
    Let me tell you, they're very easy to use, and I love the touch screen! I've gotten so many compliments on my photos!-Very crisp and clear. Oh, and I also want to add that I just happened to keep my first camera that fell in the river. I had it in storage for a year. Got it out a few months ago, and guess what! It's working!!! You can't go wrong with this one :)

    This is a great camera! "It takes a lickin and keeps on tickin." Mine looks like it went though a hammer mill but it takes pictures like it was new. It has so many features that I have to get the manual out if I want to do some non-traditional photography. It's had to beat for a point-and-shoot camera.

    Good
