The camera takes GREAT photos but the display is impossible to see in the sunlight. We have tuned the brightness to max which did not make much of a difference. The zoom feature works well and the quality of the photos is superb. Bought this camera for a recent trip which included the opportunity to photograph nature at its best. Zooming into an eagles nest was hindered by the lack of image stability.
It all about the apps bout the apps, this is the cheapest Sony for using the timelapse app. The app is difficult to load firmware update required, and you cant really have the sun in frame cause of flaring, but for a $200 camera it does okay. Don't buy it for video, unless you have a tripod, the stabilization is poor. Do buy it if you are looking for a long lens telephoto, again with some cam support it's better. Menu of course has English, just look at an english manual f..
I purchased one; and returned within hours. Manuals and menu in Kanji script (Japanese??). So it is essentially useless to an individual who does not read kanji. I also wonder about the US warranty on a product developed for the Japaneses market
