Summary: Great camera with great features. Any weight say from putting in a back pocket and sitting on a padded chair and the touchscreen goes out. Screen still functions but you cant see it therefore making it practically useless. THis is the second one its happened to. Beware its fragile.
Component Broke within 4 months with minimal usage. Bad soldering on board?

Summary: After maybe a dozen uses the USB connector pulled the component it inserts into right out of the camera. Can't charge, can't upload pictures. Bad solder? Poor design? I snapped a picture with my iPad but don't see how to upload here to share.
Summary: The DSC-TX200V takes okay pictures. However, when I was using the camera in southeast asia, the GPS feature only worked 10-20% of the time even though I was taking the pictures outdoor. Sony should disclose the accuracy of its GPS function!
Summary: Those complaining about video quality are not using fast memory cards. A cheap memory card will not have proper recording at higher resolutions because the camera cannot write fast enough to it. The picture quality is really good. The battery meter leaves a lot to be desired.
Summary: I tried hard to like this camera , sadly it was one great flaw. The smooth face . As you handle the camera , pull it out of the case , or just pick it up, you can not keep your finger prints off the lens or the flash.
