Great pictures but fragile design
on June 28, 2012
I have been waiting for Sony to come out with a great pocket size camera that will work well in low light. I bought this camera upon release and must say that it takes great pictures! I really don't think that you can beat its picture quality at this price. My wife has a Canon S100 and that still has better picture quality and low light capabilities than this. However this is smaller and lighter and has some cool features that I appreciated.
However design of the camera made me return it. I used the mini hdmi output to display some pictures that I took on our TV. The door that protects the mini hdmi would never shut again after only one use! After carefully inspecting it, it looks like it is held on with two very tiny pieces of plastic that are shaped to snap into the body of the camera. They really should have made this cover out of a soft piece of rubber so that it would stay in properly after multiple uses.
