Expensive junk

The Source, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: It's thin. That's about it. Takes terrible pictures. Maybe there's a way to use some complex custom settings, but otherwise flash photos are washed out, blurry, grainy, etc. Had it for less than 2 years- screen appears to be failing. Almost looks like some of the layers are separating. I think my next one will be a Casio or Canon. This camera is under $200 at Walmart. I wouldn't pay any more for it than that.

Not Happy

W. Dermody, Amazon
28 April 2010
  • Summary: Still image and print quality are very important to me. My 5 year old Sony that finally broke was 7 mp and had much better still image quality. I could take a picture and zoom in and it would be super clear for editing and cropping. This one is always blurry, nomatter the mode. It is extremely frustrating. Also, I usually back up movies and pics to DVD to watch later and it was super annoying that your computer has to be new to watch the videos.

Had High Hopes - Defective Product

Steve Weinberg "MediaPro", Amazon
26 November 2009
  • Summary: Hi folks: I am the director of photography for a television series. We have been using Sony professional broadcast studio equipment for 20 years without failures and I could not be happier. We recently purchased this camera for "behind the scenes" snaps at our location shootings. Please note: this camera was not purchased from Amazon, but instead, a local retailer serving professional photographers in Los Angeles.

Sorry Sony!

E. Goldblatt "Clearsky", Amazon
7 September 2009
  • Summary: I usually love Sony products, but I'm no fan of their new TX1. When I first saw this new camera, I thought this could me my next love, but we had a very short honeymoon - about 3 hours - then the ugly separation ensued! I'll be brief and to the point - the video was pretty good, but the pictures were actually horrible.

Slightly better at low light but terrible with good light

R. Tammany, Amazon

  • Summary: As an owner of a smattering of point and shoot cameras and high end DSLR's, I can be more picky than most about cameras. I own an old 6MP Sony T9 slim camera from 4 years or so back and this looked like a promising upgrade for a slim pocketable camera. HD MP4 video, 4x zoom, almost twice the MP, touch screen and this new touted Exmor R sensor.

Not impressed, but maybe I had a lemon

mjs247, Amazon
11 December 2009
  • Summary: I read mixed reviews on Amazon.com in the US about this camera and after using it for a wedding and weekend away I was left feeling less than impressed. The camera would focus properly about 1 in 10 shots and even then the focus was soft. Daylight photos, the bread and butter of even cheap digital cameras, looked dull. The panoramic gizmo is really not all that.

Rauschen bei niedrigen ISOs

User aus München, Amazon
8 August 2010
  • Summary: Diese Kamera ist eine riesige Enttäuschung für mich. Selbst bei ISO 125 (Basisempfindlichkeit) rauscht sie in die Schattenpartien. Sie ist viel schlechter als meine alte Sony W55, die ich leider verschenkt habe. In Summe ist sie für mich unbrauchbar. 2 Sternchen gibt's nur für die vielen und nützlichen Features und das nette Finish. Nachtrag: Ich habe mir mittlerweile die Canon S95 gekauft, und bin von den Bildern bei schönem Wetter begeistert.
