My new camera prompted...

My new camera prompted me to enter sony website to create a file in "the data base" what's this data base for and where is it stored? Is it like a cloud for photographers???

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

SONY CYBERSHOT HX90V SERIAL(###) ###-#### I JUST GOT IT.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I JUST STARTED THE CAMERA AND WAS DOING SET UPS. I DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE PROMPT TO GO TO OR CREATE A DATA BASE. I SAID CANCEL AS I DID NOT UNDERSTAND IT. CAMERA IS OK.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

NO, THIS IS JUST A BEGINNER'S QUESTION. IT IS NOT EXPLAINED IN MANUAL.

Hi there and welcome

This database resides with Sony, it is for their storage use, in order to have a registration for your camera.

It is part of an online cloud like service they offer.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
