Summary: I haven't had any problems with my waterproof camera. The only thing I wish was different was the zoom capability. However, I bought it because I wanted a waterproof camera for when I'm swimming/diving/snorkeling in the shallows.The pictures come out beautifully too.
Summary: Only had this a few days as a backup camera to my Sony TX20 camera that was sent in repair due at battery door cracking from fatigue. Door was replaced under warranty but still appears to bow so decided to buy this as I did not trust the repair to keep out water. So used new TF1 and made sure door closed not showing yellow and seal clean and still leaked after a few days use.
Summary: Works great underwater and takes great pictures! Very pleased with it and have had no problems! Have used it in a swimming pool and then snorkeling at the beach. No leaks and beautiful pics! Even used just for sight- seeing!
camera doesn't work at all in panoramic, screen streaks purple

Summary: This is my second Sony DSC-TF1/L, returned the first and this one is just as bad. I have had cameras for the last 20 years and this is a bad product. Panoramic setting does not work , it gives error message that the camera has to be moved in one straight direction, of course...it's so sensitive it wont' finish the panoramic, especially if the lighting changes ...also the screen is constantly turning purple and streaking ...tired of trying to make it work..
Summary: That's how the photos are looking so far!! Have had it two months, taken over a thousand pictures and more than a dozen videos, several panoramic shots and LOVE IT. Only Didn't give it 5 stars because nothing is perfect, But even I, the non-tech person, could navigate the menu to change to Macro and Magnify settings, and had no problems using the video and video zoom. Underwater Color and sound are excellent.
Summary: This is a badass camera. 16.1 meg pixel and waterproof. I took mine to North Carolina in some serious backwoods , got it dirty, wet, etc. works fine. Get it off Amazon and you will receive a bunch of accessories you otherwise would not get in the store. If I could afford another 100 dollars I would get a Go-Pro, but this thing kicks ass for what it is. The video is good and the panoramic picture thing is pretty cool. Great vacation/outdoor/pool party camera.
Summary: i have used it multiple times in the water over the past few weeks each time making sure that battery compartment is sealed. with in a few mins the back screen is foggy from the inside and it takes hours for the screen to clear.
Summary: First one I ordered had a mic problem so no sound for video, sent it back got a brand new one and it works amazing! The picture quality is so good you could even take black and white with only one specific color standing out...definitely worth my money !

Summary: when you take pictures in the water is good, about 5 meters, beyond are confusing, the outdoor shots are good in normal light, but when you want a tropical sunset, with those bright colors distinguish not, your screen does not have a good contrast to see you take. your flash reaches about 4 meters and at night its colors are wrong.
