Sony DSC-TX10 16.2 Megapixel Waterproof Reviews Roundup

Sony today announces five new 16.2 Megapixels Cyber-shot digital still cameras - models DSC-TX100V, DSC-TX10, DSC-HX7V, DSC-WX10 and DSC-WX9. These cameras features a "Exmor R" back-illuminated CMOS sensor and are the world's first compact digital still cameras to include 3D Still Image mode for taking 3D images using only one lens and imager. They also have innovative Dual Rec (record) technology, for taking still photos during video capture.

The TX100V is the first Cyber-shot camera with a 3.5-inch OLED with touch screen that provides deeper blacks and more vibrant color contrast on the screen, all while being thinner and having a faster response time than most LCDs. It can also support full HD (1920 x 1080/60p) video capability at 60p. The DSC-TX10, DSC-HX7V, DSC-WX10 and DSC-WX9 cameras can record movies at 60i in 1080 AVCHD format. Additionally, the DSC-WX10 camera include a high-speed linear auto focus feature that provides quick and precise focusing similar to the speed of a DSLR camera.

    Overrated, Gio
    Go Nikon. I brought this camera with me all around South East Asia and it doesn't hold up well. The photo quality isn't there.

    Nice enough photos, but it stooped working the first time I got it wet.
    also, warranty does not cover water damage.

    useless camera as batteries don't last long,, Phillip
    battery last 20minutes and dies. replacement batteries just as bad. ok camera but the batteries are really terrible its not worth using as they are always dead. If you leave the batteries out, not charge them within the week your using the camera, the batteries are likely dead.

    By far one of the best point & shoot cameras I have ever purchased. Still using it to this day. Made my purchase back in 2011. I've used it underwater in Sicily, Hawaii, Florida, Dubai, Oman, Jordan, and the list goes on. I've taken some decent pictures if I may say so myself. I wish there was a delay, or timed shoot. I mean there is a 2 second and 10 second timer but I'm trying to capture stills of the night sky and this sadly does not do that. I intend on posting some pictures of Petra, a lightning storm over the Med, and maybe a few other things.
    One con... once submerged, wet hands or water on the touch screen make things a little difficult. I just swing it around by the lanyard to get the water off.

    I bought this camera almost 4 years ago and it has been dropped in the water, on the ground, lost for a while and it is still kicking. I did lose the charging cord for it, so I had to find a new charger for the battery. I wish the touch screen was a little more sensitive, it doesn't pick up every tap when navigating the menus. I really like the fact that it can go from off to taking a picture in about 3 seconds. All in all, great camera that takes great pictures and can take a beating (even though it looks fragile).

    Adequate, failing though.., Lokjai "Lokjai"
    I bought this camera back in Nov 2011 when it was on sale for 169. I bought it primarily for its waterproof function so I can go snorkeling on my trips to Hawaii. I took it with me to Oahu in 2012 on several snorkeling trips and I have it with me now in Big Island. I really don't take care of the camera and as a result the LCD screen is quite scratched, and the lettering on the body is fading. Also there's sand lodged all over the place. I really roughhouse it, it smashes into the sand when I'm boogie boarding, etc. I brought it snorkeling and boogie boarding for the past two days. I soak the camera in fresh water at the end of the day. I just found a bit of rust in the hdmi compartment. I've found sand lodged everywhere on the camera housing, which I suspect will eventually allow water to seep in. I'm expecting this camera to die soon... but I'm ok with the purchase as it has allowed me to take my vacation pics in the water when I otherwise never would have been able to. If I need replace, I will definitely take care of it better.
    Oh, I'm also not super happy with the quality of the pics, but I'm picky and am comparing this camera to my Canon dslr and Sony nex-3, which isn't fair, really.
    The pics look a bit washed out.
    Overall, would purchase a similar camera from Sony for around the same price, but would never be able to justify the original retail of 300 something!

    The warrenty is void if water gets in camera. Do not buy this if you want a underwater camera. Jokes on me and any other buyer. I would not buy this again.

    LOVE this camera!! Great bang for the buck!, M. K. Evans "moostng78"
    LOVE this camera. It has so much to offer in this price range compared to other models! I have had multiple other brands of underwater cameras (including Olympus which are TERRIBLE) and the fail to compare to this one. Sony's images are so much better and the camera is so simple to use and handle. The only gripe I have is that since Sony makes everything to their own standards - they don't have universal cords or memory cards. We lost one of our memory cards while on vacation and had a very hard time replacing it. Most standard SD cards do not fit.
    Can't be beat for the price range and capability of everything you would want to take pictures of in the water.

    NOT waterproof, Serena Choi
    I am hugely disappointed with this camera. =( I borrowed it from my sister to take on a cruise to the Caribbean, hoping to snap some photos while snorkeling. It worked fine when I took underwater photos with it in the pool, however, it did not fare so well the next day when we went to the beach to go snorkeling. I took one picture as we were getting into the water…and that was the last picture our Sony TX10 will ever take. After we had swam a short distance from the beach, I tried to take some photos with the camera but it would not turn on. I thought maybe the battery was dead, but when we eventually got back to the beach, I discovered the camera had leaked, water had gotten inside, and the camera was essentially destroyed. How can you label a camera waterproof & shockproof when it is clearly neither?! There are quite a number of other reviews on Amazon from users who had the same experience - 1 minute in the ocean and the camera went dead. I know this is an older model and that Sony does not cover water damage so there is not much I can do, I just take serious issue with the fact that Sony advertised this as a waterproof camera when it clearly has design issues in that area. Now I have to replace my sister's camera and you can be sure I won't be buying a Sony.
    P.S. Image quality is so-so. Some pictures have this strange, overly smooth quality to them.

    Takes amazing pictures!, Nathaniel Chavin
    I bought this camera over 2 years ago and it's still working great for me today. Absolutely waterproof - I've brought it snorkeling dozens of times around the world. I've always been super careful to wash it and soak it in clean water after taking it in any kind of water (even if it gets a little splash on it). It takes beautiful pictures outside of water and HD video as well. Bonus that it's super tiny and cute :)

    I really like this camera, is pretty useful and easy to carry on. I've used for almost 2 years and I have not complains about it. I've used inside pools, beaches and lakes and still working as the first day. Even I've left it fall down several ocasion and nothing happens until now of course, I recommend don't do it.
