On my first trip the camera flash error started flashing. It continued to take pictures but no flash available. I shipped it to the Sony repair people and waited and waited... finally I called them and after some time and a few transfers, the response was that it would cost too much to repair and it was not covered by the warranty. I am a fan of SONY electronics and own plenty of their products but never will I buy another Sony camera. It's biggest advantage is small size, but that's about it. I found it does not reliably take consistently high quality crisp pictures as well as my other digital cameras, both with less pixel power.
Another disadvantage is the need for a custom battery. When camping out for several days, back up batteries are a must. It is most convenient to me to be able to use standard batteries which would be consistent with my other river electronics.
I rate it 5 out of 10.
