Summary: I only give it one star because you can't give it 0 stars. Not only is it not waterproof, it's not even water resistant. First vacation, first day in the pool, less then in one foot of water and it leaked. Sony couldn't fix it after 3 attempts, the warranty expired and they stopped responding to my requests. Sony is definitely not what they used to be. In my opinion they're just out for that quick buck now days. The Sony quality has gone down the drain.
Summary: I have owned two of these cameras. The photo quality is great and it has a sleek design but the touch-screen is so weak that it easily cracks. My second one just cracked so I felt compelled to write a review. In this most recent case, the camera was just in my front jeans pocket and cracked due to the pressure from walking around (I don't wear tight jeans). I have other touch-screen devises (iphone, blackberry, etc.) and have never head a problem.
Summary: I purchased this camera for my X-mas trip to Vegas with the family. The camera is compact and the battery life was good. However, when we got home and uploaded the pictures onto the computer, ALL the pictures are blurry, VERY BLURRY. Buildings and large objects in the background all turned out very crisp and clear with nice color contrast, but persons all turned out extremely blurry, I can not believe out of the 300 photos I took they all turned out bad so I know it's...
Summary: I simply could not believe Sony would bring to the market a camera like this one. I've had many Sony products, including three digital cameras (from the 1997 Mavica to a 3MP and a 5MP Cyber-shot). This camera is very slim and convenient, the touch screen and the software are great. BUT, unless you simply want to show-off your camera, I'd rather keep my wife's old 3MP cyber shot. The indoor pictures were awful, and I know how to take pictures.
Please search online for Sony T series vibration issues

Summary: I have now had 3 T series cameras and all of them have failed after 2 years because of a well known vibrating issue impacting all Sony T series DSC cameras. Please search online for T20, T2 etc etc vibrating issues - there's a mechanical fault with the lens area whereby the whole assembly vibrates as some internal glue comes loose, making the lens search for focus repeatedly (and thus causing the whole unit to vibrate).
Looks and feels great - but have to remove battery to charge it!!!!

Summary: I bought this lovely looking camera yesterday - i cannot as yet comment on the photo quality/ease use etc but i feel compelled to warn you all - you have to remove the battery (fiddly to do) to place in the battery charger!! my first digital camera ten years ago worked like that but nowadays I expect to be able to cradle charge or plug in like my phone. I previously had a DSC-T3 and bought a Cybershot cradle charge unit for it.
