"I do have one problem."

Maybe it is for a small POS. Where this Sony really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. I am so impressed with this Sony ! No other 8k Point & Shoot Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this Sony .
