Hi Purchased my first W1 in England last month but it packed it within a week-it took pictures but they were completely unrecognisable-returned it and was given a second which packed up this weekend-this time the lens stayed extended and turning the power off/on did not do anything-camera gave an error number (I forget which one) so am off to the shop again.

Am I just unlucky and should I risk a 3rd one? I think the camera is great but my confidence has been dented!

Thanks

Hi, I don't really know what to tell you.

I have my W1 for over a month, I've been taking great care of it, and so far it has worked flawlessly without the slightest of problems.

Since I don't want to see it even slightly scratched (because its so beautiful) I have eally given it excellent care,nevertheless it does seem quite durable to me anyhow.

If you really like the camera and can exchange it for free (warranty?) then do so.

I think its a very good camera and its too bad giving it up because you were unlucky. If you haven't got warranty its a different story and I would be considering another camera if I were you.

Mine has been fine for over 6 weeks. Try a hard reset or exchange it again.

I exchanged it (again) and ordered from a different supplier so 3rd time lucky-I went into a respected local camera shop and they said that they had no returns and that generally Sony were reliable. I will keep you informed.
