Most helpful reviews

Richard, London Point & shoot

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
View finder, ease of use and features.
Bad points:
Broken with a year - the lens cover fails to open. From looking at the web this is an apparently common fault. Time to use better components on this part of the camera?
Disappointing as Sony has a reputation for reliability and build quality.
Lost receipt (my fault) but minimum repair charge was about the cost of a replacement camera.

Good range of zoom.
Viewfinder makes it easy to frame a picture.

Program dial sometimes inadvertantly knocked so that care is needed to check the correct setting before use.
