Summary: Very light and easy to use. The video quality is amazing but the software is cumbersome to figure out anything. I used it under water and it works great. I have never been a big fan of putting so many options on a camera that you don't really know which is the best setting. I would rather point and shoot for the best image. It's hard to rate a camera when a phone does so much in one package.
Summary: I really like Sony cyber-shots. I think I used to own the first one they came out with. I've tried other small camera brands like Canon and Nikon, but I prefer the quality and ease of the Sony types. I really love the panorama option. I miss some of the silly options that the other cyber-shots had, but they aren't very important. I could just make the effort to do some photo editing once the pictures are on my computer.
Summary: I purchased my Sony TX10 over a year ago, in August 2011. Since then, I've used it repeatedly in the ocean, pouring rain, pools, snow, fine sand beaches, in clubs and at parties, and in geothermal and volcanic environments. I've dropped it on rocks and in water and in alcoholic beverages, and once, in soup! It has never, ever failed me. I carry it with me every day and every where I go, to capture the beauty of living in New Zealand.
Summary: I needed a camera that was wateproof and easy to use for a sailing race across the North Pacific Ocean and this camera worked very well, albeit briefly. I found the camera easy to use even without glasses. The simple mode had large text and all the features I needed to quickly take pictures. Even being hit with constant waves, and being constantly wet for a week and a half in the pocket of my foul weather jacket, the camera never leaked.
Summary: Bought it at $160. Water resistent yes, just verify you close the connection lid. Color is the best IMO. But the battery doesnt last. I can only take a 30 minute video and it dies on me. Touch screen is not that quick.
Summary: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX10 16.2 MP Waterproof Digital Still Camera with Exmor R CMOS Sensor, 3D Sweep Panorama and Full HD 1080/60i Video (Black) 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.
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.
Summary: I've read the negative reviews on this product not being as "water proof" as expected, and I haven't dunk it in a pool, yet. It's been splashed a little, though. Otherwise this camera is pretty great for its class and price. It's no DSLR like my Nikon, but again it's a point and shoot so I didn't expect its blur background functionality to be that robust.
Nice Camera, Water Leaked Inside it Though... Got Replacement!

Summary: I decided to write a review so people would know that sony did give me a replacement camera (Only cost of $15 for shipping) after my first one got water inside of it. I had been looking for a good waterproof camera for a while to use while on cruises and other places while snorkeling. Generally, the camera has a great form factor. It takes sharp images and has a lot of neat settings, including 3D and panoramic pictures.
