Sony TX-10 - Not Waterproof or Water Resistant
D. Zamba, Amazon
29 February 2012
Summary: I have owned many Sony Point and Shoot Digital cameras and was ecstatic to finally get the Sony TX-10 for those under water pictures. I will make this review short and to the point. The TX-10 performed great, it took great pictures, fast start up, light and small to carry -- then I took it into the water. The camera failed.
Summary: I love the camera enough to buy a USB cable instead of returning it - but the cable is absolutely essential, since Sony uses a proprietary USB port and it's impossible to charge the battery without the cable.
Excerpt: I recently bought it as I got a good price thru amazon uk. I was well aware of its drawbacks, so I am happy. I want it for its water resistant property. So far great results even in low light situations. I am usually a Nikon D7000 operator. Problems: The well advertised and discussed.
The WARRANTY is a DUD MIGHT AS WELL BUY A CHEAP ON-SALE CAMERA!

Summary: The WARRANTY is a DUD MIGHT AS WELL BUY A CHEAP ON-SALE CAMERA. I got it in July 2011, 6 weeks later it "couldn't withstand an impact" (it fell in a national park) so pictures come out distorted.
Not waterproof, buy the tx100 instead, great pictures but broke after one snorkel session

Summary: This is not waterproof, resistant maybe but not waterproof, do not submerge this camera! Takes beautiful pictures, but you might as well save money and get the tx100 instead and buy something else if you need a waterproof camera. Mine broke after one 10 minute session. We'll see if Sony replaces it...
Excerpt: I go this camera prior to a trip to Hawaii to use underwater, and to have later as a carry-everywhere camera. The main reasons I chose it over other underwater cameras were: 1. Lens protection when not in use. 2. High quality results with exmor sensor. 3. Super close macro distance (~1cm). 4. 24mm equiv wide angle 5. Nice and small for shirt pocket use.
Summary: I bought this camera about a week before a two-week Caribbean vacation, persuaded mainly by the reviews. I didn't have time to play with it or read the manual before my trip. I launched straight into using it. Here are some of my favorite things: 1. It didn't leak, and there are no bubbles on the lens when the door opens. 2. It's very intuitive. The menus on the screen make sense if you just take your time.
Summary: I took this camera out to the Badlands in the Anza Borrego desert twice and it worked flawless. It was covered in dust and I did drop it from 5 feet to test it. Still worked perfect. I then took the camera on a hike and dropped it from 5 feet into a river. I reached in and took a couple of pictures. Camera still worked perfect. The camera takes excellent photos and in my opinion is a good buy. I have read reviews where people state it is not waterproof.
