Best point and shoot I've ever owned--and I've owned a lot!

Summary: I bought this camera on a whim when Amazon had a Black Friday sale in 2011 and I haven't regretted it yet. It is simply the most capable, versatile, durable, portable, and sexiest camera I've ever owned. Here are some notable features about this camera (note: there are many other features, but I'm only going to list the outstanding ones): +Low-light performance is AMAZING in High-ISO and twilight modes. I can't tell you how useful this can be.
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: I purchased this item when I saw it go on sale for black Friday. I LOVE this camera! The pictures are clear and there are many options (easy, auto, superior, panorama). I usually leave it on superior and that takes care of pics inside and outside. What I love most about this camera (besides the clear pictures) is that it is waterproof! I am not afraid to have it around my little nephews (ages 4-12).
Summary: This camera, met and exceeded my expectations. The pictures it takes are clear, as long as the camera is given a second to focus. Shutter speed is fast, not quite dslr speed, but close. Video is amazing, and sound recording is very detailed and clear. Only audio problem occurs in heavy wind, as it picks up every howl and blow. Water shots are amazing, and again video is stunning with sound while diving gives you the full experience.
For underwater and great panoramas, but very slow.

Summary: I bought this camera for the only purpose of having a camera that I could take with me all day long and use it everywhere, even at the beach or underwater and create amazing panoramic shoots. I'm an amateur photographer and I use my Nikon D90 camera for taking pictures, most of them in manual mode.
Summary: Disappointingly, my TX-10 also leaked on its first trial in the Caribbean and corroded the USB port, and its cable plug. As an avid TX-5 user with its touch screen (which works underwater; the TX-10 screen does not)and its single door (versus two on the TX-10), I had great hopes for this newer model, but Sony seems to have gone backward with this one. I hope their next model will include the good features of the TX-5, including one less door that might leak.
Summary: This camera was beyond expectation, took it to ride water rides and slides in theme parks and water parks, and now we have priceless photos of our fun time together. Easy to use, clear hd videos, lived up to being waterproof, small handy and cute, and at a very reasonable price.
Summary: This camera takes great pictures for a point and shoot, especially under low light conditions. However, if you are looking for a durable, waterproof, shockproof camera that's all around more rugged, I would stick with cannon, olympus, or panasonic. This camera is not durable at all. The frame surrounding my screen broke while the camera was in a hard case inside my purse on a separate compartment. Where is the shockproof there?!
