Hi Krkkudrill - You've had the camera sometime now and I was wondering how you have found the camera with long term use and have you had any problems with it?

Had it for two years now and I'm still happy with it. On one occasion some months ago the camera seemed to freeze when I turned it off and the lens did not retract. If I recall right I had to remove the battery and put it back in before the camera would work properly, but that solved the problem and the camera has worked fine ever since.

Thanks for the camera advice. I have purchased the Sony HX90V and looking forward to using it. Though it looks like I a degree in camera technology as there are so many functions and options.

I got the camera on 20 November and there is a 50 cash back promotion. I have just claimed my cash back today and was gutted to find I should have waited 4 days and made my purchase today as the cash back has increased to 80 for purchases made 24-29 November.  :( :(

Pity about the cashback, but you've got yourself a great little camera. Don't worry too much about all the functions and options - just set it to auto and let the camera do all the work.  :)  Learn about the options as you go along.


The photos in my review in this thread have disappeared down the hole in Photobucket, but if anyone else is interested, much the same review (with photos) can be found here:
