The image and video quality is incredible. Great camera if it did not have so many problems. No problems the first few months, but once on vacation the problems developed. Circuit issues with the Flash (common with all Cybershots). Underwater, cool water temperature eliminates the use of the touch screen, slide cover jams with sand and the battery life is only 1 hour videos. Also the concern with door lock switch that is so sensitive, it can pop open destroying the camera interiors (should have dual locks). I use tape to cover all the locks for protection, looks awful, but works great. I believe this is the best image and video Sport Camera on the market, but with shoddy reliability and poor design this could be so much better. Can't recommend after completing my 2nd (flash and options) both electrical done through an extended warranty. With only a few months to go, if this breaks again will be looking elsewhere for a better option.
