Like a first answer I'm also bought 55 mm UV filter and tread it in lens - fits absolutely perfect . Now I have protected lens and improve my photos quality. Probably SONY means previous similar models with the different lens ends.

*Viewfinder - Approx. 200 min. (Approx. 400 images)

Typical movie shooting
*LCD screen - Approx. 50 min.
*Viewfinder Approx. 55 min.

Continuous movie shooting
*LCD screen - Approx. 90 min.
*Viewfinder - Approx. 100 min.

Viewing still images
*Approx. 270 min. (Approx. 5400 images)

• The above number of images applies when the battery pack is fully charged. The
number of images may decrease depending on the conditions of use.

Are you using the superior auto or intelligent auto mode? It sounds like you may be using a program mode with some set levels that is tasking the camera. Make sure you are using either the green or yellow camera icon for the mode when taking pictures. The camera will automatically define all the correct levels for white balance, aperture value etc. and make taking pictures a breeze; good luck!

I have the same issue with my camera as well. I take a shot of some geese and while the camera takes it's own sweet time processing, the geese take off and are 50 yards down range before I can take another photo. I'm guessing the reason for this unneccisary delay is that the camera is using a small image sensor and then converting ALL OF THAT visual data that is suppose to eventually produce a 13 X 19 printed photo.

Easiest method is to simply take out the SD card and put it in a reader- either built into your laptop or external, and then copy the files.

You can download the software for Mac OS using the link below.

Mac does not support “PlayMemories Home.” Use the application bundled with the Mac to play back images.

Yes to both. I set the flash to "always on" and then simply don't raise the flash if I don't want it. If it's not raised it won't flash, if it is raised it will. Works great for me!
