Sony Cyber Shot WX10 camera

Excerpt: I recently purchased the Sony Cyber Shot WX10 camera . It is a 16.2 megapixel camera and the main reason why I asked to receive this one was because it records video in HD. I have always wanted a camera with HD capabilities so this was exciting to try out. The price of the camera was about $240 but I have seen it online for less from various retailers so it might be possible to get it for cheaper than I did if you do your research.
Summary: For the time we purchased it, it had a lot of features for a small package. We use this as an alternative to our big DSLR and has held well to hiking/backbacking trips. The big downside is the ease in which the play button gets pushed. Horrible button. It gets turned on and your battery juice goes down (not cool on a backbacking trip).
Summary: Its a very nice pocket camera. Great functions and optical range. Quality is as promised... 16mp is a as much as I'll ever need for my vacations & family requirements. I'm reviewing this gadget 6 months after I actually bought it. Now I'd rather buy a "smart" camera, to instantly upload and share my photos via wifi...
Summary: I was researching a while to find a camera that took clean, crisp, clear pictures and this was it. I also have a Sony Cybershot DSC-TX9 which I love the touch screen and I wish this camera had the same feature but I would find the pictures were not always clear. I think the worst part of this camera is getting used to the dial switch. The touchscreen spoiled me. Other than that, I love it.
generally pleased; Half point for not using standard usb cable, another half for image quality.
honestly disagree, Amazon

Summary: I bought it because it looks and feels better than Canon S100 and Nikon S8200. Sony products are known to have annoyances. I am surprised to find only one, but big one in this camera, the usb cable. Why don't they just use the mini usb cable for their phones?! I also don't like the size. I wish it was as big as their Xperia phones so that the buttons, dials, and battery could be larger. Some people complained slow menu, slow video start, unintuitive settings.
Doesn't Take Memory Sticks and the Camera is the Recharger

Summary: Just got this and two things to be aware of. 1) Sony says it takes Memory Stick type cards as well as SD type cards, but the slot only fits SD type cards and there is no adapter that the Sony support people could find. 2) You don't take the battery out of the camera to recharge it. Instead you connect the camera to an AC adapter, which is OK if you don't plan on using the camera while another battery recharges back in your hotel room.
The camera is easy in some ways but limiting in others, ok not great.

Summary: I thought that it would do better on closeups, I am still having trouble with small details on coins and jewelry, you can't zoomin and stay in focus on most small items. I am trying to find another lense to use with it for small type and detailed coins and jewelry. It is what it is and nothing more.
Summary: The camera is great, light weight, easy to use, and I love the 7x zoom. The only problem is that after you take a photo and you then prompt the camera to display the photo - this is quite slow.
