Conclusion: Convenient to use. Panorama is cool, but not very useful in reality.
Pros: Convenient to use. Panorama is cool, but not very useful in reality.
Cons: Image quality poor in most conditions other than bright sunlight. Had 5 mp DSC-F707 prior to this camera and this camera can't even come close to image quality of that 5MP unit. Only had this for 6 months, but am already looking for a replacement.
Excerpt: Convenient to use. Panorama is cool, but not very useful in reality. Image quality poor...appears to have 3MP resolution instead of 10 MP. Easy to use. Problems: Image quality poor in most conditions other than bright sunlight.
Excerpt: This is well made camera but for me the results are poor. This is a point a shoot camera that so far has produced nothing but fuzzy or blurred pictures. My previous camera had a much lower spec yet produced much sharper pictures in less than optimal conditions.
Summary: After about 5 months with this camera I have produced some very high quality images even at 5 m pixels. The video's are amazingly brilliant and sharp too. The only problem I have had is with dust backscatter.
Summary: This camera arrived 2 days before I left on vacation. I loved the sleek, slim shape, large screen, and clear pictures. It fit in my pocket so easily to carry around. Took great pictures in low light. But the Touch Screen drove me crazy.
Summary: Well, I just sold my new SONY DSC-TX1 in Costa Rica for the same price I paid online a few weeks back. And here's why: STILLS: First, I must say the SWEEP PANORAMA technology is very accurate and very effective. But how often do you spin around in circles taking pano shots?
Summary: I finally realize that SMALL is not so good when I buy a camera. It just is TOO small. For traveling, I believe I would rather LOOK like a tourist and hang from my neck, than to put it back and forth in my purse/case.
Summary: I bought the TX1 after using a borrowed one and comparing it to Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, and the newest compact Sonys: TX100, TX7, T110. Price was not an objective. Compactness, panorama, internal lens, durability all needed to combine to produce great images.
Summary: There are some things I love about this camera--the size (fits in my pocket), the quality of shots when it is working properly, the burst feature. There is one thing that is so frustrating, it knocked off two stars. That is the touchscreen.
