Purchaser Keen amateur

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Your standard camera, nothing to fault really. Image quality standard and it's good all round.
Bad points:
The touch screen LCD - which was manufactured with faults - died away a few months later, and Sony were demanding almost 2/3 of the price to repair it, for something that was their fault. Appalling really, Canon camcroders ftw.
