I have a Sony T5.

I find it very irritating that the MODE switch at the top of this tiny camera can easily move from Still to Video setting without any warning, so that after one has checked what is - one thinks -a satisfactory still image inone's viewfinder, all that's in fact been recorded is afew seconds of wavy (andcompletely useless) video.

I have missed several important shots because of this, for instance at weddings.

Are other T5 owners running into the same problem, or haveI a faulty camera? Thank you - Meg.

A nuisance I have found with my Sony T5 ultra-compact camera is that the mode switch can easily move accidentally from STILL to MOVIE, so you find a few seconds of uselessly wavy video is all that's been recorded when you'd thought, checking the still image in the viewfinder, that you had a satisfactory still picture.



There is no warning at all when this happens and I find it quite maddening; indeed, I am considering returning the camera because of it. It has caused me to miss important shots on special occasions such as weddings. Has anybody else run into the same problem, I wonder, or is my camera actually faulty?

I have a Sony T5 which - apart from its different external shape - is practically identical with this T7 camera, I believe, and I would endorse the criticism about its indoor image resolution.
