Why Has it Scored 72?

It has good expert reviews and great user reviews with an average overall rating of 80%.
This digital camera is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer digital cameras with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering. View the latest digital cameras 2018.
This Sony digital camera has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
4608 x 3456 pixels image resolution
\\Don't leave it to guesswork: intelligent auto recognises a wide range of scenes and adjusts settings automatically so you can get detailed results every time
\\Take panoramic photos in one go: just press the shutter button and sweep the camera for extra-wide panoramas of landscapes, city scenes and packed parties
\\See photos clearly on-screen: view your shots on the high-resolution clear photo LCD screen that automatically adjusts brightness to suit sunshine or dull days
\\Shoot high quality pictures quickly: the BIONZ processor is key to high-speed continuous shooting at 10 frames per second and finely detailed image quality
\\See detail in the dark: use extra high sensitivity mode to capture crisp detail in the dimmest conditions like dusk or candlelight
\\Don't worry about unsteady hands: enjoy crisper, blur-free still photos with optical steadyshot that cuts handheld wobbles when you don't have a tripod
\\Get clear close-ups: powerful 16x clear image zoom really fills the frame, even with distant subjects so your shots always stay clear and detail-packed
\\Shoot smooth, steady full HD movies: film smooth, steady video clips in full HD, even when you re walking or zooming, with optical steadyshot active mode
\\Capture action with no blur: superior auto recognises when subjects are moving in your picture and automatically adjusts settings for crisp, blur-free results
\\Add artistic picture effects: add creative effects to stills, movies and panoramas without having to download and use image-editing software
Higher than average megapixels
\\Get a wider view: make sure nothing\'s left out of the picture: the wide angle lens packs more into holiday scenes, interiors and group shots
\\Ready to shoot, near or far: the high-quality carl zeiss lens with 8x optical zoom handles every scene, from wide-angle landscapes to portraits and close-ups
\\Shutter in your pocket: use your phone as a handy remote to control the camera via wi-fi; it\'s great when you don't want to be left out of the scene
\\Easy sharing with wi-fi: send photos and videos straight to a smartphone or tablet; back-up shots wirelessly to you PC, or view on your connected TV
\ capture 16.2 megapixel detail, even in low light: shoot detail-packed stills and movies, even indoors or in dim light, with the 16.2 effective megapixels exmor R CMOS sensor
Shoot, share and get creative
\\Boost your flash photography: advanced flash brightens up dim scenes, like friends and family who are further away from the camera
