Summary: This camera has a lot of nice features but it's unable to take good photos or videos. If you take a picture with flash, is very likely that you're going to get a blue flare in the upper right corner and white faces. It's a battery sucker! Don't waste your money buying this camera, the older models like TX10 or TX20 are way better (and cheaper).
Summary: WHY CAN'T I GIVE NEGATIVE STARS? DON'T BUY THIS OR ANY OTHER SONY CAMERA!!!!! Sony makes crap cameras and their support will accuse you of breaking it. Purchase from a respectable camera maker like Canon, Nikon, or Fuji. I bought this for snorkeling and it corrupted my memory card on the first trip. OK, $10,000 trip with no pictures, because the camera corrupted the memory. Called Sony and they blamed the memory. Got two new memory cards for the next trip.
