I have to say that the current liking for 'selfies' tempted me into purchasing one of these and, to date, it has been just the job, great when trying to pose with a grandchild in your arms and not enough free hands :-)
I got mine from eLife Store and they were punctual and the product well packaged.
I purchased this for my wife as a christmas present and it has been round Europe and the USA. Overall its a pretty good camera but we are having a problem with the video aspects. The issue relates to a blurring of items where there are lines - a striped jumper for example, and it is becoming very annoying. We really do like Sony equipment (I have a NEX5) but this one is very disappointing.
I cannot recall where I first came across this tale but am glad I did. It is a wonderful story that packs so many stories into itself and is a great read. That it weaves the lives of so many people together and laves you guessing up to the end
