Summary: This camera has many good qualities, but is definitely not waterproof. Nice design, nice zoom, nice photo quality... but when I needed it the most, it failed me. It died after touch the water in the beach.
shockproof, yet it broke in my bag that had nothing but a towel in it.

Summary: I honestly didn't use this camera much at all the first year i had it, mostly just sat on my desk. Then i started taking it to sea world to take pics of the kids at the splash pad and the various splash zone shows that go on there.
Summary: This camera has small control buttons even for my small fingers. Having many of option controls on the screen causers constant screen cleaning. Even worse is the position of the lens. Due to its overall small size, it was difficult to get all fingers away from the lens.
Summary: This camera isn't really waterpoof, just somewhat water resistant at best. It's a good for point & shoot photography though. Two serious drawbacks I hope will be addressed in future version... battery life, and non standard charging plug on the camera itself.
NOT WATERPROOF!!!, but takes great pictures. Allow me to explain.

Summary: I'll be brief. My wife and I needed a waterproof camera for our cruise. We used this one under about one foot of water, and after taking it out of the water the camera started to glitch and, minutes later, died. The charge port was where the water entered the camera.
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...
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.
Summary: Its a very nice camera, picture quality is very good, touch screen is good. But the battery life is too bad. It does not continue even for 30 pics. If the battery is kept in the camera for 3/4 days, the battery got dead.
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.
