2 out of 5 eggsSony DSC-HX50V /B

Pros: This camera has a lot of features.

I bought this camera from a local vender and not Newegg. Newegg has always taken care of any issue that I have ever had in the past so there isn't anything that Newegg can do for me except post this review.

Cons: I have used this camera for taking photos of my step-son playing High school football and Basketball. After 4 months of little use I am sending the camera in for repair. I am getting an error code of C32:60 which I am being told is a focusing issue.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for an inexpensive camera, you might want to look for another model. I am disappointed in the cameras quality. When filling out the RMA paperwork through the Sony website and I still had to call in because the site had an error.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Light...30X zoom gets you closer to the action.

Cons: Durability is a question. Received defective . Lens cover only partially opens when turned on. Contacted newegg for replacement but newegg does not replace this particular product even if you receive this defective right out of the package. Instead, to call Sony as this is covered by warranty. Sony does not want to replace the product either but asked to ship the camera for repair. Just be cautious and read the terms before buying this camera.
