Flash malfunction right away
from Orange, Ca
Comments about Sony Cyber-shot 16.2 MP Digital Camera Bundle - Black:
Im very disappointed about this camera, sure it takes good picture but its not reliably. I used in underwater and the next day the flash failed. It says E 91.01 error and it doesnt work. If you want a good underwater camera look for Olympus. I had it for 5 years and it still works perfect.. I just wanted to upgrade to a new camera and this is what i got. ..
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The most amazing camera ever
from Montana, MT
This camera is the best in my book. Its photo image is super clear to the tiniest detail, you can literally just point and shoot and the photo comes out great, love the touchscreen, SO many cool picture options!! I LOVE the intelligent auto - so clever! If you are having second thoughts about this camera, stop. Just buy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great little camera for rough activities
from San Francisco, CA
I love this little camera. I bought it for a trip to the tropics, knowing I would take it kayaking, hiking, up a volcano, and snorkeling. I took many underwater photos that came out well in the full sun, using the underwater mode, and they actually were corrected for that usual "blueness" that underwater photos have. I also shot video underwater, during the day, and it came out well. Action photos of sea life, kayaking, landscapes, and panoramic shots were all terrific. The only disappointment was the nighttime underwater photos, although I really shouldn't complain. It took mostly blurry photos when light was not bright, but again, it's not a DSLR. Happy with my purchase, and recommend to all sporty people who want a camera that can tolerate a little bump here and there, and that can swim along with them.

This is a great little camera. It is easy to use just point and shot.

I purchased this camera for a spring break trip in 2011. It worked beautifully. Great photos, including many underwater. The following spring break, 2012, I packed this camera and looked forward to more great underwater shots. The first time I submerged it, it filled with water and was ruined. No camera for the rest of the vacation (I had to take photos using my iPhone for the rest of the trip - obviously, no underwater.). To say I was mad is an understatement. I don't like wasting money. Stay away!

Stay Away from the Camera and Customer Service
Took the camera out of the box, and noticed that the LCD had a lift near the screen protector to find out that there is no screen protector that the part lifted up was part of the screen. Called Customer Service and was told they don't make this camera no more and, if this is the build quality of sony now a days I will stay away.. was going to purchase a NEX5R, now forget it....

I love this camera!
from Beaverton OR.
I shoot professionally with a 5DMKII, and my girlfriend got me this so I have a camera to take kayaking, hiking, etc.... I've only been playing with it for two days, but so far am very impressed by the image quality, as well as the low light performance. Granted it struggles a bit at low light, but for a point and shoot, I'm not disappointed at all. One of the features I was most excited to use is the HD video recorder, and once again, it is impressive! Nice smooth frame rate, very effective steady cam, and surprisingly good audio, although I haven't used it in an area with a lot of background noise though. My one complaint is the goofy 3x4 image format. Not sure what Sony's thinking was on this, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. You can always compose your photo to crop it to a 4x6 at a later time. I can't wait to use this out on the water, and will have another smaller review once I use it underwater, which I'm also pretty excited for!

from The Desert
I first bought this camera in 2008. I took it on an international vacation and wanted something durable, plus waterproof. The pictures I took in and out of the water were amazing! Sadly, after a couple years, it died. The screen only showed pixels and it just died. Because I loved the camera, I bought the same one in 2010. Plus, we bought the charcoal colored one and after using itin the pool just a couple of times, the charcoal coating peeled off in random places. Looked terrible. Also, the screen has permanent blotches on it that don't show up in the pictures but it is hard to view the screen. Guess what? It's 2012 and it died. I will not be buying another Sony Cyber Shot because they only last two years!

from Los Angeles, CA
This is my FOURTH Sony Cyber-Shot. I have had three TX10s which have all quit on me due to microphone issues. The exact same thing is wrong with my TX20. The videos and pictures aren't as good as the TX10's. And the loud white noise in the microphone makes the videos nearly un-watchable! This was only my first day having the camera, and I have to go to the Sony store for the tenth time! I even tried getting my TX10 fixed, but it wasn't fixed! *Do not get this product!*
Does Not Live Up to Billing
from Charlotte NC
This camera was advertised as waterproof, shockproof and dustproof and inside of 60 days taking it to 3 pools in less than 3 feet of water the camera has completely stopped working. Really bad waste of money. This is not a durable product. Find another waterproof camera to purchase. If this did what it was advertised to do it would be great.
