Worked well

  • Excerpt: Bought this for snorkeling on a Hawaii vacation. Thus far it's worked well. It could use a way to tighten the strap on your hand to make it less likely to drop while swimming, but I was able to keep ahold of it.

It's been a good, trusty camera but not stellar

Joshua Tauberer, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using the Sony DSC-TX30 for about 10 months. It's been a good, trusty camera but not stellar. I had hoped that moving up from a Canon PowerShot SD780IS, which is both an older generation and a lower density (12.1 MP), would yield noticibly better photos. The photo quality seems comparable.

  • Summary: Light weight, good quality waterproof camera that isn't heavy. Most of the other waterproof cameras are bulky and heavy to carry.

I love this camera!

  • Excerpt: Just took it out for the test drive before a long carribean vacation and was thrilled with the images I got. Had it out on the water and the pictures were clear with good color. Even used it in the water and had zero problems. Floating strap is a good idea too. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for an inexpensive waterproof point and shoot. Oh...The macro is amazing as well. Super easy to download the pictures to the computer too. Good luck everyone!
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Design, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Poor in Low Light

  • Summary: Bought specifically for snorkeling and after 10 trips it is still working fine. Screen scratches easily and you can't really change settings after you go in the water, but underwater pictures are decent and and its much cheaper than alternatives in the same price range.

  • Summary: Its really much better than all the negative reviews - first I put a screen protector on right away to prevent scratches. The placement of the shutter button and rectangular shape is weird, I keep pressing the zoom. Yes it doesn't work underwater (the touchscreen) however with water on the protector screen it still works fine... combined with a float and took lots of water photos and body surfing.

Great Value Waterproof Camera!

C. Adams, Amazon
20 August 2014
  • Summary: Great camera for the beach and ocean. Picture quality is I would expect for a sub-$200 point and shoot. It's very good for what it is but I wasn't amazed. Waterproof performed perfectly. We had it submerged ~5ft for several seconds and internals stayed dry. Settings and autofocus are pretty good. There was a little bit of lag on the touchscreen input, which was a little frustrating when wanting to switch back and forth between resolutions.

Great Camera for a small Package

Arjay, B&H Photo
14 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Great little camera, like all point and shoots I find the shutter response time to be slow when using the flash. I always get the shot just after the moment I wanted to capture. Sony has a strange grain I find compared to other camera sensors. have not tried it under water yet so no comment there. last note, sometimes during a movie I tend to bump the sliding door covering the lens, then the camera shuts off and video is over. Opps.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Short Battery Life

it is a working horse

Goldfishka, Amazon

  • Summary: I had TX-10 for two years and it was just fine. Image quality so so, but video was perfect and very convenient to keep in the purse. One day I finally dropped it from 2 feet high and it got crack on the lid which closes the battery. It still was working fine, till I took it to a waterpark. Water got in the compartment and camera stopped working. Week after it dried out and now it is working again. No more water for this little old gadget...
