Summary: After researching all sorts of cameras for the past 3 months, I finally splurged on this one over a month back -- even though there weren't many reviews on this then. I was replacing an excellent Sony DSC-V1 that I had bought in 2003 (which finally gave up the ghost). I just got back from Yosemite where I stress-tested this baby. The positives: It does best what it is supposed to do - take beautiful pictures.
Summary: This camera is GREAT! If you are looking for a light durable, waterproof, shockproof camera that takes good snapshots on an SD card. The camera takes really good photos, and the in camera touchup and features are really amazing. The lens is 28 mm equivalent which is way wider than normal P/S cameras. It starts up relatively fast and shoots fast. The isweep panorama feature is awesome.
Pros: Image quality: The pics look great, Size: it's small, light and has a streamlined form factor that is easy to slip into a pocket., Speed: For talking photos, it's pretty fast, In camera image processing: HDR, iSweep, Red Eye, iSweep Panorama: You set it to isweep mode and press the button and move the camera across the scene. It works really well! You can change the sweep rotation left right up and down. There are also settings for image quality.
Cons: Battery: It's not amazing and it dies quickly in the cold, Slow Video: The time between when you hit video redord and when it begins recording will turn your hair grey., Owner's Manual: It's worthless, AVCHD 60p video: It comes into Cinema Tools at 30 FPS. I can't figure out how to overcrank it.
Summary: Pros: Great pictures and video. Truly HD . Underwater capabilities. Slim and light. Great sound. Cons: battery life. Shockproof but too smooth, surface not rugged. Slow to initiate video, at least 5 sec.
Summary: I'm really impressed about the product for $300 price range... This is not Your regular point and shoot camera... This is the ONE you can take camping, water park, to the beach, sand dunes, ect. without worrying about your camera.. I took it to Bahamas with me last week to take under water pictures and videos... Everyone was asking me about the camera... Underwater picture and video quality was amazing as well as regular pictures and videos...
Outstanding small, rugged camera; buy extra battery & charger, too!

Summary: I purchased a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX10 camera from Amazon in early May, 2011 and have used it very extensively for four weeks. I'm a 59-year-old MIT-educated physicist living with my wife and 6-year-old child in New York City. As a physicist, I've developed solid state CCD image sensors for aerospace applications, and over the years I've purchased cameras (large and small) from a variety of manufacturers, including Nikon, Leica, Canon, Sony & Panasonic.
Summary: Its not perfect, but its the best overall snorkeling camera I've found. Takes very nice above-water photos, and the panorama sweep (both above and below water) works great. 1080 movies are great both above and below water - although there is about a 3 sec delay before it starts recording. No noticable video focus hunting even when zooming.
Didn't meet high expectations but still a great camera

Summary: UPDATED AS OF 5/31/2011: Kept the camera after I thought about returning it and I'm glad I kept it. Updated rating from 3 stars to 4 stars I'm an underwater and rugged camera junkie so when I heard about this new camera I had very high expectations. I have owned 2 other Panasonic TS1 waterproof cameras and loved those (other than my last one leaked and destroyed the camera.
Summary: Great camera.. I was looking for a waterproof camera for my trip to Caribbean when I read about Sony TX-10. I compared the reviews and specs of canon D10, panasonic TS1,2 and 3, Olympus, pentax and most other waterproofs out there. After comparing several professional reviews and pondering over the best overall package ie best image quality combined with other features, I bought this camera. I can say that it was an excellent choice.
Summary: I recently upgraded from the TX5 to the TX10 (lost my TX5). The first thing I noticed was the more plastic-like feel to the TX10. The 5 felt more like a small canon, real solid and heavy. Don't worry though, the plastic feels very high quality and nothing about the camera feels cheap in hand. The touch screen takes some getting used to. If you're an SLR user or a canon point and shoot user then you'll probably be frustrated with the Sony menu's at first.
