Disappointed

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: I love Sony cameras. I own three of them including an excellent NEX-6 which is my camera of choice. I also have a Sony DSC-TX5 which served me well for 5 years. I bought it for my wife who broke my Canon camera by dropping it and I figured she needs a shockproof camera. The DSC-TX5 did a great job until recently when water got into it and it died( I guess waterproofing the camera is not one of the Sony's strengths).

WRONG SD card

Cristina Gort, Amazon
29 June 2014
  • Summary: I ordered the bundle package with the new camera and it included a 32 bit SD card the problem is that they sent a standard size card and the camera requires a micro SD card. Now I can only take 5 pictures without the memory card.

Died after submersion in water

  • Summary: Takes great pics. Generations better than the previous TX20. BUT, it died after its first dip in the pool. I checked the battery compartment and found no trace of any leak. Water must have seeped in elsewhere.

Terrible Sony support

montanamilt, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I loved this camera out of the box as both the picture and video quality were awesome. The display however is terrible as you can't see anything in daylight so changing settings is next to impossible. The display also scratched VERY easily and that soon became a problem. A corner of the display came loose, so I sent the camera to Sony's Laredo repair facility. The repair was going to be $207 so they offered me a replacement for $200 - even though a new camera is $249.

not really waterproof

globalgamble "KR", Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: After using it for less than a year, it has died on me. I took it under water a few times, and it was fine. Just recently I forgot was in my pocket when I jumped in a pool, and now it is ruined. It is not holding up to the test of time.

If you have the Sony tx20 do not up grade to this model,very dull lackluster

Icewater, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: Below average photos the images look soft dull and to a degree under developed.I have both models (tx20 and tx30) and this one is not good. In terms of speed and performance it is excellent but in the the end a camera is only as good as it photo quality .PASS ON THIS MODEL

Be aware screen is terrible

M P Lokuta, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: Be aware, if using the camera outside in sunlight the screen is almost impossible to see!!!! How could Sony make a camera with a screen that is useless if used outside. Other than that it's okay camera. Just being honest.
