Summary: I bought the Sony TX10 for my Tahiti trip. The quality os the photos weren't great. Most images were dull and desaturated. Lacked color and contrast. My previous DSC-N1 (2005) produced better results. But here's the worst part: the camera died the second time I used it in the water while snorkeling. I didn't lose the pictures I had already taken up to that point, but had no camera for the rest of the trip...
Summary: I purchased this camera with the hope that it would be able to keep up with my active lifestyle. When I received this product, I was anxious to see how it would hold up. I charged the battery and placed it in its protective slot, I was off to put it to the test. I wanted to try it in the pool before I used it at the lake or on our upcoming caribbean cruise. I switched it to underwater mode and it told me to check that all the openings were closed and sealed.
Summary: I was reasonably happy with this camera even though the image quality was poor and the touchscreen did not work as it should, the camera was purchased for its waterproof capabilities and it served its purpose for a while. It was not heavily used when the 1 year warranty expired and a week later a piece broke off of the lower right corner of the body. It was an unprovoked and not neglected. I did some research and this happens frequently with this camera.
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: This review is done after more than a year of using this camera. I purchased this camera back in May 2011 primarily because I wanted to take some underwater pictures and videos for my awesome vacation in Hawaii. Being a skeptical person, I read reviews, research, look at specs of all the waterproof cameras and decided on the Sony Cybershot TX-10.
Summary: I was really loving this camera, until it slipped out of my hand, fell about 3 feet, and the front sliding cover popped off. I sent it in for warranty, and Sony's service center is telling me that because it was dropped it is out of warranty and the repair is $267! Needs a new lens, new front cover parts, new microphone, etc. The description says you can drop it from 5 feet, but I'm not sure why they would advertise that if the warranty won't cover the repair.
Summary: I just received this camera yesterday, and have spent some time with it. So far I have not been dissapointed. Spend some time reading the manual, there is a learning curve involved to get the most from this camera. The pictures and video are crisp and true to color, and performs very well under low light conditions. Like another reviewer suggested be sure to pick up a as you can not charge the camera battery externally.
Summary: I've just come home from a day at the beach and my camera is kaput, broken, won't work, finished, trashed... whatever you want to say. I thought (more like hoped) maybe the battery was dead. Nope! Some how, some way water got into my waterproof camera. If you have this camera now, do not take it in the water. If you plan on buying this camera, please realize that it is not, I repeat, NOT waterproof. Other than that, it is a good camera.
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 received my camera six months ago. I loved the camera and took excellent care of it. I never opened the doors while the camera was exposed to water and always dried it off and checked for sand in the seals. I never took it deeper than six feet. I was in Hawaii last month and the camera quit. When I returned home I mailed the camera to the sony service center and was finally informed that there was corrosion in the camera and that had voided the warranty.
