Pros - Good display
+ focus and exposure control via touchscreen works well
+ focus ring replacement is OK
+ Good image in terms of sharpness and color
+ Very sharp display
Cons - Image characteristics can not be changed
- few image control options
- no manual shutter control
- the owner is put under tutelage
Conclusion The high resolution of its 3D images is a real novelty in this price range.In automatic mode, beautiful 3D images can be made quickly and easily.Manual control, however, is scarce.In terms of picture quality the gap between the best Canon-cams in this class ist almost leveled, and the handling offers many unique features (camera control ring, focus and exposure via touchscreen, high-resolution LCD), which can´t be found elsewhere (yet).If Sony would allow the user to manually set the shutter (and with meaningful numerical values), this camera would really rock
