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. The camera took great pictures, and we played with it in the fish tank a bit too at home, then one trip to sea world, I grabbed my camera out of my bag, that contained nothing else but a towel for after the splash pad and found the casing to...
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. Many shots had fingertips showing. It is smaller than most smart phones so a cell phone with a good camera is a better choice. Picture quality is average. I sent it back for a refund.
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. Come on sony, start using micro usb like everyone else.
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. We sent it off to Sony for repair, they did so, and sent it back.
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 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?!
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.
Summary: I bought this digital camera to replace our Canon and that was my first mistake. It's pretty pricey, too boot, so I should have returned it in the first couple of weeks but now the 30 day return policy is over. UPDATE: Turns out that I do have a bit more time for returning this item so yes, it's going back). The camera is not easy to use nor is it easy to navigate.
