Excerpt: This is a great little camera. It's fun all around camera. Pictures are decent. Video is great, and underwater performance has exceeded my expectations. Reviewing both pictures and videos on the rear LCD screen is a lot of fun too amongst friends and family. It's super clear. I've also used the HDMI out to play back pictures and videos on a large screen and was extremely satisfied. Problems: Overall operation is slow.
Summary: I pre-ordered my tx10 7 months ago after owning 2 different olympus waterproof cameras. The olympus cameras worked great but failed after a year and a half of use. I never took good care of my olympus cameras so the failures were salt corroding the case and buttons. I fish and surf.....a lot! After receiving my Sony I was impressed with the small size but was concerned on how it didn't seem a beefed up as my Olympus cameras were.
Summary: This camera is NOT waterproof as advertised and the Sony warranty is not covering water damage...which might tell something about their trust in their own product. I bought this camera especially before a trip to HI. My wife wanted to have a small camera since she dislikes my bulky DSLR and lenses. Since we also planned to do some snorkeling, the TX10 sounded too good to be true.
Summary: I am a pro photographer and this addition to my cameras was a great plus considering the 16.2MP, waterproof and shockproof. This is one of the best looking waterproof cameras in the market and is worth the $s. Underwater pics and video is really cool and crisp. Battery life is the only thing that bit concerned me... but its not that bad considering the quality and features it offers.
Summary: Ok, let me begin by saying I am far from a photo guy. I have no idea what an ISO, F stop or WB is. But I can say this camera is awesome! For the first time ever I was able to take a camera on vacation without having to worry about it getting wrecked. Took it in the pool, on the beach and in the OCEAN!!! The setting are easy to use, touch screen, although sometime unresponsive, is a great feature and the panoramic setting is really cool. Picture quality is amazing.
Summary: Confirming the other good reviews. A great, light little camera. Amazing pictures and better video (in HD) than my DVD camcorder Even the mic works well. Works great underwater and we have inadvertently tested the shock proofness - works great too. Highly recommended.
Summary: I see all the negative reviews for the camera leaking. I have one for the supposed shock proof warranty. I am a caver and this camera has been great for 5 months. I take it in my cave sack take photos go home clean it and it has always worked well (other than the dust spots from the flash). Anyway, last time i went i tossed my cave pack about 4 feet down below me. Later when i got the camera out the liquid crystals behind the glass had ruptured.

Summary: First off I would like to say, I have owned the Sony DSC-TX5 and this DSC-TX10 camera is the big brother. Just like the TX5 with more features and equal quality. For all the negative reviews regarding water getting in; I have not had this issue. BUT as with any waterproof camera from any manufacture, there are bound to be customers who get water in the cameras and blame the design. Read the directions, take care of your stuff, and don't go deeper then recommended.

Summary: We needed a camera that could handle our upcoming honeymoon trip to Costa Rica and this camera delivered with flying colors. We do a lot of outdoors activities - hiking, kayaking, etc., so needed something small, durable & waterproof, but I didn't want to give up picture quality. This camera fills all those reqs to a T. When it comes to cameras, I'm a point & shoot person. I don't know about white balance, shutter speed, etc.
