This camera is more of a downgrade to the TX100v

Venecius C. Thomas "V.T.", Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: I got the TX200v after I lost my TX100v. The only real upgrade is it being dust and water proof. The picture and video quality is a downgrade compared with the previous model. This camera is poorly designed with the glass over the lens. The glass plate gets fingerprints and smudges easily which results in softer images. I had to wipe the glass over the lens before I took a shot.

  • Summary: Over all picture quality is OK, not bad or not very good. The battery life is very bad. It does not last long. I took less than 50 shots and few minutes video and battery died. This happend two times. Feature wise this is very good camera. Fully touch screen and easy to understand.

Incredible camera, but not quite perfect

Kelly Sottelbaum, Amazon
3 September 2012
  • Summary: I'm a longtime Panasonic camera guy. I have a couple small pocket ones, and a , and have been very happy with all of them. Pitting them (mostly the higher end, super-zoom Panasonic) against this Sony seemed a little unfair, but I didn't mind the unfairness enough to let it stop me. First of all, the Panasonic has a quality lense that about 4 times the size of this one.

Much bigger than the pictures

LB, Amazon
26 June 2012
  • Summary: Overall, the camera works well. High quality. But the pictures are misleading. Its a very thick pocket camera. About double the sizes of an Android or Iphone. I returned it for the T-66, which is extremely thin, and has all the same features, except waterproofing and gps, two items i would never use. So beware of misleading thin pictures and look at the T-66 instead.

Blurry video, poor microSD card implementation

KindlePad, Amazon
25 May 2012
  • Summary: Ok, so I really wanted to love this little camera but it's fighting me very step of the way. My main problems are: Cons: This camera uses a microSD card instead of a regular SD card. Why?! Who thinks an SD card is so big you need a microSD card? For both my acer laptop & my macbook pro (which both have sd card slots) I have to use an SD card adapter to read an microSD card. It's just silly. Plus they are more $$ an slower.

Expected MUCH more for $499

B. Hayes, Amazon
30 March 2012
  • Summary: I just took delivery of the Sony TX200v and have played with it for the past several hours. Before I get into specifics, I will tell you that it is going back to Amazon for the following reasons: - While pretty to look at, I don't see the glass front surviving very long. Not only with scratches, but I fear even a short distance drop will doom the glass. - At $500, I expected better performance and more features. - Build quality is lacking.

Great, but not so great

Ryan Matthews, Amazon
30 March 2012
  • Summary: The TX200V is a wonderful little gem with some really nifty features. Most notable about this little guy is the outstanding quality of the lens they included. What you're ultimately paying for is a great lens and sensor. However, I don't think it's worth $500. This is much more of a niche cam. For $500 you could pick up a DSLR that shoots better pictures. For $500 you could also get a nice Panasonic camcorder that shoots better video. So, why buy this cam?
