This camera only lasted 18 months before the software packed up.

It is in for repair which may be OK if the price is right.

It started off being a good camera but ended up being a nightmare.

My advice is to try a Nikon A10 which has , so far , more robust software . Nikon are camera makers and it shows up in the software . I have replaced the Sony with an A10 so we will see how long this one lasts. The Nikon is more expensive but I hope it will be worth it . I don't believe in all these insurance policies you can but to extend the warranty . I have bought many things that have lasted and lasted . Had I paid for insurance on all thses it woulde have cast a fortune by now.

I do not recommend this camera , there is something lacking in the software department, it is not robust enough.
I was a programmer once upon a time and can tell the signs of lacking robustness.
DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA , BUY A NIKON OR A CANON .

Having complained to Amazon about this camera ( which was 18months old when the software packed up ) and told them that warranties are not legally binding and that you can expect a Sony camera to last much longer than 18 months they sent me a brand new camera for no charge. WELL DONE AMAZON . Also I had sent the broken camera to the Manchester repair company using the Amazon system whereby they reimburse you for the postage and the return postage if you decide the repair cost is not worth it .

In the event I had the broken camera returned and in perfect working order for no charge. WELL DONE AMAZON.
The fault was , in my opinion, was the software because the new software on the returned camera had had it's date changed . This indicates that the software had been reinstalled .

It remains to be seen how long these cameras last.

I am not an expert so cannot comment on the quality of the camera but it seemed to be a good quality camera for the price. However, we do have a large camera to use for when we want to take really good quality pictures anyway.
The main motivation behind getting this camera was to have a compact camera to carry in our bag on family outings and to be able to easily transfer the pictures to our phones/iPads for editing and sharing.
Unfortunately this camera failed miserably on the later functionality: despite spending 2 hours trying to link the camera to the phone (and I am relatively techy savvy), I was not able to transfer a single picture. I research Sony's support site including all the troubleshooting suggestions without success. Their support site gives you no number, email or chatting facility for contact.
Using the functionality that the advertise in the camera should not be this hard. For this reason I am retiring the camera.

I have lost patience with Sony and updated my initial review.
Received direct from Amazon in factory sealed box. It was not possible to charge the battery with the cable enclosed, as it did not fit into the camera port. Neither did the cable for my much loved existing Sony, which has packed up. Why on earth would they want to change the access port, are they morphing into Apple! Amazon Customer Services were very helpful and tried to supply a suitable cable free of charge. That arrived today and also did not fit the camera port.
I have been a long standing Sony customer, as I have previously found their products to be robust and reliable. However, this camera, itself, seems a poor build quality and plasticy compared to my previous purchases. Cannot comment yet on how it may perform, as I was unable to try it out.

I returned this for replacement, as I was been unable to find another that I liked. However, Sony had better pull its socks up if it hopes to keep loyal customers. Amazon have now provided a replacement which has arrived with another dodgy cable, I give up!!

This is probably the worse camera I have used. In sunlight you loose all background and in low light the pictures are all blurry even with the flash on. Shutter speed is slow and picture quality is awful. This is apparently 20mp but the images are so blurry that it's pointless. We resorted to going back to our camera phones that take perfect images every time even in low light. I will be looking to return this as it is useless. We would have had better luck with a disposable camera

Firstly the camera is a very small capable unit and takes very good photos once you've worked it out.
Downsides are no sports settings, the motion shot is a con as you cannot save the images with this camera so not sure why it is there to begin with other than false advertising, connection to phone through wifi is an on going joke unless your phone is less than 12 months old, and Sony support in answering the questions above might as well be automated robotic responses and supplied instructions are pretty poor.

I don't recommend this item. Actually any camera on a phone these days can take better pictures than this. It is not better than my phone camera at night. I'm thinking about return but if I buy again I will go for a mobile phone with better camera.
