Summary: I'm a loyal Sony and Cybershot customer. My last Cybershot camera, at least 2-3 years old, the touch screen does not work so I can not change settings. So I ordered this one. Only had for few months. Its hard to press the camera shoot button. Everyone presses the zoom or ON/OFF button instead.
Camera problems and terrible Sony Custoerm Service !

Summary: Sony Cameras suffer from CMOS problems with colored vertical lines in many photos. DO NOT BUY A SONY camera- They sold me a Protection Plus Warranty for this camera then when problem occurred and was sent to repair station they wanted to bill me $161.
Summary: I used the TX66 several times during the year and it worked fine. Then, I wanted to take pictures at a class reunion, but the camera failed. I kept getting an error message telling me to reinsert the memory card. I did so at least a dozen times. Obviously there was something wrong.
Summary: I had this camera for 3 weeks and the screen died. Sent it for repair and 3 days later the whole camera died. Sony repair facility is horrible to deal with and most customer service calls are answered in India now. I bought the extra warranty and they won't help until the camera is a year old.
Summary: When I first tried this camera I was very impressed...lightweight, super features and output was like you would expect from something much larger. It was perfect as a small travel companion that would be relied upon for high quality stills or video...even the sound was very good.
