I bought it 10 days ago n now I regret on my decision. Very bad image quality...Sony disappointed me with this product. It looks nice when u hold it but as per working it worst. Even a smartphone camera works better than it. Don't give best pic quality...blur images, no clarity. I'm not going to buy any Sony Camera in future.
