Pros and Cons
The 18.2MP Sony Cyber-shot camera will shoot up to 10fps high definition videos and 3D images. However, the camera viewfinder is not 3D enabled and; therefore, you will not be able to view your 3D images in the LCD. Moreover, 3D videos are not supported, and the viewfinder screen is not touched sensitive.
Otherwise, the 1080p HD videos are superb and resourceful. As is the trend, GPS tagging works perfectly too. There are a lot of editing and filter options like the new Water Color and Illustration Mode with more than 9 picture effects- so the Photoshop is now inside you camera!
