Waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, freeze-proof, HD movies, 3D photos, Sweep Panorama, and a touch screen, this powerful tool follows you to the edge and proves you were there.
Sony DSC-TX10 Feature Highlights
Rugged and Stylish
Rugged and Stylish
This camera is just as much at home in the water as on a night on the town! The sleek and stylish TX10 fits the slimmest pocket or purse, yet is waterproof to a depth of 16 ft10, shockproof from falls up to approximately 5 ft9 and dustproof12 thanks to its airtight construction. As well, this durable camera can even withstand extreme weather conditions, as it is operable in temperatures from 14- to 104-degrees Fahrenheit11.  Seamlessly shifting from underwater marvels to a night on the town, the TX10 always makes it easy to get the best shot!
3.0-inch LCD 3-inch Touch screen   
A large 3-inch touch screen LCD makes it easy for viewing and sharing images with simple and fun touch operation.
Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor
16.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS Image Sensor
The DSC-TX10 features a 16.2 megapixel “Exmor R” CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera’s Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined “Exmor R” CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor delivers extremely fast 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080i movie modes7.
Full HD 1080 Full HD 1080@60i   
Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 Full HD3. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV.
3D still image   
Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities. Images will take on a new dimension to view the world in a whole new way5.
iSweep Panorama
iSweep Panorama    
With iSweep Panorama just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a panoramic image. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion.
Background Defocus   
DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now our point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear.
Superior Auto Mode Superior Auto Mode   
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using backlight correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology. Superior Auto intelligently detects 36 scenes for still images and movies, making it easy to get the best shot.
Soft Skin Mode   
Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot. 
Natural Flash   
Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images.
High speed shooting
The DSC-TX10 can capture full 16.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal. In addition, the DSC-TX10 employs a mechanical shutter that helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects.
Carl Zeiss Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens with 25mm equivalent wide 4x Optical Zoom
The high-performance Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 4x optical zoom lens brings distant subjects closer for video recording as well as for outdoor, sports, and travel photos, and Close Focus shoots close-ups up to just under ½-inch from the subject. A wide angle of 25mm equivalent wide-angle lens allows you to take wider shots of the scene or group in crowded spaces.
HDMI output
HDMI output   
The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. HDMI connects digital audio/video sources such as a compatible camcorder, Blu-ray Disc player, a personal computer, a video game console, or an AV receiver to a compatible digital audio device and/or video monitor such as a digital television (DTV). Easily connect your Cyber-shot camera via HDMI cable to any compatible HDMI compatible device to easily enjoy and upload content7.
Smile Shutter Smile Shutter technology
Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. Also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection Sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can be used together with Smile Shutter mode.  This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.
Face Detection technology Face Detection technology
Sony’s Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
Motion Detection
Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces.
Anti-blink Function
It’s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.
Sweep Multi Angle Mode   
In Sweep Multi Angle mode, the camera takes 15 images at different angles as it sweeps across the scene. By tilting the camera during playback, the camera’s Gyro Sensor detects motion and displays the image in a 3D-like view on the camera’s LCD.
Anti-Motion Blur Mode
Capture cleaner and sharper images in low light for non landscape shots. When set in Anti-motion Blur Mode, the DSC-TX10 captures six images in a fraction of a second with higher shutter speed and combines the data from all six to create a single image of extraordinary detail and dramatically reduce subject blur, beyond the capability of traditional cameras.
Backlight Correction HDR
Shooting high-contrast scenes can often lead to washed out backgrounds and/or details lost in shadow. Backlight Correction HDR helps correct for this by taking three pictures at different exposure settings and processing the best elements of all three into a single image for more natural looking shots.
TransferJet Technology TransferJet technology   
TransferJet technology, developed by Sony and advanced and promoted by consortium of 18 other companies, allows the transfer of up to ten files between two TransferJet enabled devices just by touching their TransferJet logos together, without the hassle of hunting for cables or the complication of pairing8.
Works with iMovie Compatible with PC and MAC Systems   
The Full HD video captured with the DSC-TX10 can be used with the provided Picture Motion Browser software1 for PC and iMovie (sold separately) for Mac systems.
Includes Sony PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Software ver. 5.51

First, some background on what I was looking for: I'm a casual photographer. I wanted a waterproof camera which would produce high-quality photos in all settings (indoor, outdoor, and underwater. My intention was to completely replace my 7.2MP Sony DSC-W7, which I LOVE. I wanted to add the underwater feature without compromising on other features. I did not want to spend more than about $400 for everything (camera, two 8GB memory cards (Class 10), two extra batteries with charger, and float strap. This left me with about $340 max to spend on the camera itself. I do NOT know a lot about photography. Terms like "ISO" and "white balance" are foreign to me. I like to use pre-programmed scene modes and auto features. I enjoy digital scrapbooking and I frequently zoom and crop. It takes a very high quality photo to crop out/enlarge a small figure without too much distortion.
I began my search online and spent about 6 hours researching the cameras in my price range. The cameras I focused on most were the Canon D10, Sony TX10, Panasonic TS3 (sometimes referred to as FT3), Olympus TG-810, Olympus Tough 8010, Fujifilm XP30, and Pentax WG-1.
I eliminated most of these options rather quickly based on their reviews, overall ratings, and the quality of photos that I reviewed. I narrowed my focus to the Canon D10, the Sony TX10, and the Panasonic TS3.
I wanted to love the Canon D10, since it seems to be the overwhelming fan favorite, but I ultimately decided that it wasn't going to be a good fit for me. The price of the D10 is similar to the Sony and the Panasonic, but it's a 2.5 year old model which doesn't have HD video. The photo quality seemed about equivalent to the other two, so I decided to only focus on the two models with HD video.

I purchased this camera with the hope that it would be able to keep up with my active lifestyle. When I received this product, I was anxious to see how it would hold up. I charged the battery and placed it in its protective slot, I was off to put it to the test. I wanted to try it in the pool before I used it at the lake or on our upcoming caribbean cruise. I switched it to underwater mode and it told me to check that all the openings were closed and sealed. I checked the openings and in the pool I went. (3 feet deep at the deepest) Needless to say it crashed and burned on its maiden voyage. The screen started to flicker and after about a minute of being scrambled, it died! Never to work again. Like others that have had issues with this camera and the Sony "customer care" Sony refuses to replace let alone refund my money due to water damage. I wouldn't have a problem with that if it was my fault that the camera malfunctioned. My experience with this camera and Sony leaves a bad taste in my mouth. GO AHEAD AND PASS ON THIS PRODUCT, IT WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY.

HUGE LET DOWN SONY!!!

This is my 4th Sony Cyber-shot camera, pricey but worth the investment. I just purchased DSC-HX5VB when i went on vacation on March of this year , it's a good camera but when i saw this DSC-TX10 @ Amazon & said will be available by April, I couldn't wait to get one. This is the best one! Everything about this camera has floored me, the video quality is even better. I'm not a pro but my friends were so amazed w/ the quality of pictures, it's no brainer, just shoot & the camera does a great job! I would recommend this camera to anyone, well worth the money spent. I got a carrying case to protect my investment. Thank you Sony, I am very pleased, well done!!! Thanks to you too, Amazon!

I was reasonably happy with this camera even though the image quality was poor and the touchscreen did not work as it should, the camera was purchased for its waterproof capabilities and it served its purpose for a while. It was not heavily used when the 1 year warranty expired and a week later a piece broke off of the lower right corner of the body. It was an unprovoked and not neglected. I did some research and this happens frequently with this camera. After sending it into the company they said that it would be a $250 repair, that they couldn't just replace that one piece, it had to be a full repair (meaning that every little time I scratched it, they used it against me). I had heard horror stories about the company and customer service, but we remained loyal customers, until today. I am extremely disappointed, and regret the day I made this purchase. I wish I could say otherwise, but the camera and the company is a bad choice. Stay away.

I brought this camera along with me on my trip to Central America to snap pictures in situations where I do not want to bring my D300. I was attracted by its compactness, lens, and touch screen.

The pictures this camera took was pure crap. During my trip, there was nothing but sunshine with little cloud coverage. The pics taken on intelligent mode were overblown and could not be fixed. It absolutely refuses to dial down the exposure on its own. The metering on this camera is awful and white balance was all over the place. I was in both the jungle and the beaches and had to put the camera in Program mode and manually adjust the settings in order to take any decent photos. However its low light performance is superb and underwater photographs were crisp. The layout is intuitive, but the preview button is in an awkward position.

The camera takes 7 seconds from turning on till its ready to shoot. Way too long as compared to its competitors. Its sliding door is finicky at times and will require both hands to slide down. The touch screen is nice, but it is unusable underwater. It also gets covered with fingerprints over the course of the day and does not make for a pleasant viewing area for your photos.

I also had the cracking issue on the upper and lower right side of the camera, by the power button. The camera was not dropped in any shape or form so I was quite surprised by it. As such I could not use it for underwater photos anymore.

I actually liked the phone in green because it stands out quite a bit. You cannot miss spotting the camera wherever its lying. Some might say that will attract thieves, but I think it might deter them. Who's going to steal a day glow green camera and think they can get away with it?
