BEWARE! Camera will stop working in 9 months of occasional underwater usage.

A. V., Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: BEWARE! The camera will fail within 9 months and Precision Camera (Sony's only repair center) will NOT repair it. I had this camera since April 2014 (purchased brand new at the Sony Store in Aventura, FL), so it's under 1 yr manufacturer's warranty until April 2015 (or so I thought in December 2014 when it broke).

Camera won't leave panorama mode

Casey Gierke, Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: This camera was fine and even fun while it worked. However, I put it in panorama mode one day and it won't exit so it is now rather useless. I can't change the capture settings, view the existing photos or even change the direction of the panorama sweep. If it had some hard wire buttons other than on/off, capture and movie, it could probably be reset but as of now, it is a left sweep panorama device only.

Do NOT buy this

Daniel J. Ritter, Amazon
21 October 2014
  • Summary: Well, this took fantastic photos until it was used for its intended purpose of it being waterproof. It broke the moment it touched water. I triple checked the seal, jumped into the water, and it wouldn't turn on. Once i got it back on land, i opened it up and found condensation around the battery. Best part - i was in Europe and bought the camera few weeks before the trip, so by the time i got home, the 30 day return policy according to Amazon was over.

Piece of junk

Totally Dissatisfied, B&H Photo
6 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Great camera until I tried to download pics. Images are stored in a non-standard Sony format that requires special software to be installed from the Sony website. Furthermore these apps do not support WinXP. Because of the non-standard format used on the microSD, I can't even read the card if I plug it into my PC. So I am stuck with a [$] piece of junk that I can't pictures off of.

DO NOT BUY! Camera does not hold-up.

Laura K. Patefield, Amazon
27 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera expecting the quality of Sony that I have become accustomed to through other products such as their TVs, Surround Sound Systems, Receivers, and Portable Stereo Devices. The Sony Cyber-Shot Digital Camera TX30 seemed to be the perfect camera for me and my life style. It is advertised as “certified waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, and freezeproof”. It is NOT!

Worked for 5 minutes

Keisha N. Jurawan "Momoftwins", Amazon
25 June 2014
  • Summary: brought this camera for a family trip to Jamaica and was not able to get one picture from this product. I put the camera on and as soon as it hit water it stopped working. What do I do now because this is not what I paid for? I lost the ability to record all water activities in Jamaica.

is this real Sony product?

Pen P., Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera over a month ago. Using it a few times on trips to take pictures and the pictures are looking OK. However, when it ran out of battery today and I tried to charge it, charger came with the device would not fit into the camera. This make me wonder if this is really a Sony product. Charger would not fit a camera is just too obvious of a mistake to me for a company like Sony.
