The best way to use a sony cybershot camera is as target practice. a little over 2 year, 1500-2000 shots and one day the camera wont open the lens.
Recommend this product?
im a fanatical OCD person about taking extremely good care of my cameras. no-this has never been dropped, banged, or left out of its case when not in use.
Well, i took it back to best buy-they said we can send it in. 3 weeks later i get a message on my machine to call a toll number to authorize a $341 repair bill...
for my broken $250 camera they want to charge $341?
so i started looking on ebay and google. turns out this is a COMMON problem and the most i would have to pay for identical camera is less than 40.
so-do i support sony and get a used one or take it out to the shooting range? nope-im gonna be the thorn in their side till they fix it for free or block my calls-whichever is first.
DO NOT BUY SONY! google it yourself to see the truth.
Amount Paid (US$): 250
This Camera is a Good Choice if You Want Something... Flexible Enough for Enthusiasts
