Buying used a bit of a mistake, but photo quality excellent
21 July 2013
Summary: I bought this used camera to replace my tx7, that I flooded in the marine housing last year. After checking out the housing, I determined the case had just popped open and was not actually defective, so wanted to get another camera that would fit the same us case.
Camera has nice features, image quality is average at best

Summary: The camera itself is nice. A ton of features packed into a small camera. More options than you will ever use or need. My issue is with the image quality. It is average at best. Artifacts at ISO 100, high iso is basically not even usable.
Overpriced camera--buying the name brand I suppose

Summary: I am a huge Sony fan - I know people say its the brand name you are buying and there are other very comparable to better products, but when it comes down to the actual IMAGES produced, Sony is it.
Summary: I used a similar model of Sony Cybershot for about three years and was extremely happy with it, so I decided to go ahead and get another. The camera arrived about two weeks ago and I have been very happy with it.

Summary: This camera has some pretty cool features and normal picture taking is fine. The iSweep is amazing and i can picture in my head some really good shots taken with it, but the distortion in vertical shots is obtrusive to this otherwise wonderful little camera.
Pros: Love the panorama feature on this camera. It does an incredible job handling different lighting as you "sweep" the camera across the focal range. The panoramic pictures turn out really nice. Movie mode seems average. I haven't been blown away by it. 3D is alright. I picked this model up instead o...
Cons: Unfortunately, taking pictures vertically/portrait with this camera turn out horrible! I have no idea why because pictures taken horizontal/landscape turn out fine. There is considerable distortion stretching out the picture when taken vertically. I took several pictures this way of people and di...
Summary: I got this camera for the 3D and the SLR mode. Not a whole lot of review where they touch on these things, so I will explain a little more about them. First the 3D, the 3D is not that great, nothing jumping out at you or anything. It just gives more depth into the picture that your looking at.
