This camera does not record 1080p at 60fps. Only 25fps or 30fps depending on the region in which it was bought. It can do 1080i in 50fps or 60fps.

I think it only happens if the camera has been switched off for a while.

Does the word "Cyber-shot" appear every time you turn the camera on? Mine doesn't...it appear occasionally -.-'''

I bought this camera 8 days ago and i realized the battery is an issue and it heats up quickly during use. Using the camera itself to charge the battery is a silly design. I encounter problem with the lens doesn't go in and the screen has a total black out.

My brother is using this camera. He brought it from middle east. Photo and video quality is excellent. But the main problem is the battery. Battery discharges very quickly than my Cybershot DSC W-530. It doesn't come with charger unit so you have to charge using the camera itself which is I think is not good because battery may get heated when charging inside the camera.

It seems like Sony has different specs of this camera for different regions.

As per Sony's website, this camera has 460k pixels instead of 921k pixels

Hi A Pererano, we used the specs from sonystyle.com:

Dimensions (Approx.) : W x H x D: 3 3/4 x 2 1/4" x 25/32" (94.6mm x 56.3mm x 19.8mm)

I wonder which ones are correct?

The camera size reported on sony site is (w x h x t) 92,2 x 51,9 x 19,1 see following link
