I bought this camera because I wanted a low profile, a slim and sleek camera, while having good picture quality.

My first opinion when holding this camera is that it is light-weight. I thought it would have a nice weight to it, like an iPhone. I can't complain, because this is probably better especially when you want to carry it in your shirt pocket and you won't look like a fool.

The sliding mechanism that covers the lens is actually a thin sheet of metal coated with your favorite camera color. I think this gives it a cheap feel, but probably contributes to its lightweight.

The OLED display is respectable. The pixel density is not like the latest DSLR camera display, the pixels are identifiable but still a good display.

I use a Transcend 16 GB Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory Card TS16GSDHC10E with this camera. Under maximum picture quality and size settings, it estimates about nearly 2800 possible pictures that can be taken (from when it was formatted). This is an estimate, usually it's more based on my experience with other cameras (the estimate adjusts as the card fills up). Picture sizes vary between 2MB to 6MB (16MP size; 4608x3456), excluding some outliers.

HD video is very good. the files are AVCHD videos, in *.m2ts files, the frame rate is smooth, and you can zoom in and out (4x optical, I disable digital zoom) while recording. One quirk about the video recording feature is that when I switch it to video mode, it automatically starts recording. And to stop recording and record again, I need touch the record-button on the screen rather than the dedicated capture button.

I anticipated the release and ordered the TX100v to upgrade from the TX7. I mainly use these cameras for videography projects so I will be focusing this review on the HD video. The TX100v has slightly better video quality and better white balance than the TX7. The TX100v image stabilization is not so good and constantly changes focus causing the subjects to appear a little blurry in situations where you have to constantly move the camera to follow your subject. The image stabilization on the TX7 is much better and doesn't constantly go out of focus. The TX100v has slightly better low light performance. The TX100v doesn't wash out the subjects in bright sunlight and handles back light situations well. The TX7 washes out certain subjects in bright sunlight and handles the back light well in some situations and not so well in others but still ok. The TX100v takes a few seconds to start up from the time you turn on the camera and takes a few seconds for the video to start recording after touching the record icon. The TX7 takes 1 second to turn on and video recording starts instantly when the shutter is pressed or when the record icon is touched. You can only start recording by touching the record icon on the TX100v and stop recording by touching the record icon again or by closing the cover. On the TX7 you can start recording by pressing the shutter and touching the record icon and stop recording by pressing the shutter, touching the record icon again or by closing the cover. The TX100v zooms slightly slower than the TX7. Both cameras can record continuously for up to 29 minutes but splits the video files if it exceeds 2gb. The TX100v has better audio quality since is has a Dolby stereo microphone. The TX7 has a simple stereo mic which is not bad but doesn't handle loud noise well at concerts.Read more ›

This is the best of the current batch of cameras using the Exmor R CMOS. The shutter delay is negligible. A previous reviewer mentioned the movie mode button. There is a movie button but this just starts recording a movie according to the current movie settings (incredibly flexible up to 1080 P 60 fps). This lets you skip a step and just begin shooting video. during video shooting you can grab a still photo without interupting the video by pressing the normal exposure button. If you use maximum settings and all the bells and whistles you will create gorgeous still photos even in backlight conditions and video files that are remarkable especially if you use a small tripod to hold the camera by a stem. The macro feature is amazing with the Carl Zies lens. If you're interested in 3D get your own apartment first and move out of your mothers basement. The files created with 16 mp are huge and eat battery so you'll need lots of storage and batteries for a trip and perhaps one of the new USB3 card readers (5GB/sec) to download. Remember that HF video files cannot be stored or played from DVD's, you need a blu ray writer, they are cheap now. When I don't want to lag my Cannon SLR and lenses around, I still get remarkable images and video and the ability to shoot stills in 16:9 makes adding photos to my videos a pleasure.

I've had this camera for a few days now and here are my thoughts:

The Good:
1) Fantastic pictures with very good low-light handling and fast start-up (around 1 sec).
2) Very easy movie mode. You just press the movie button on the touchscreen to start/stop. No fumbling through menus. The video quality is excellent as well, and you can record in both MP4 and the finer MTS (AVCHD). Audio is pretty decent and in stereo.
3) You can take pictures (sans flash) while recording videos.
4) The OLED screen is really detailed and impressive.
5) The panorama shots are easy to perform and very cool. I LOVE this feature.
6) The camera gets charged by connecting it to the USB (no need to take the battery out).
7) The touch focus (tap where you want to focus) and touch zoom during review (zooms in where you tap) are nice features.
8) Aesthetically speaking it's a pretty camera.

The Bad:
1) The touchscreen isn't all that great. It is resistive and not capacitive so I guess that explains it. I also have the Samsung ST600 with a 3.5" capacitive touchscreen and it is so much more responsive in comparison.
2) The cover is a pain to open. This is my first Sony camera with the push down cover so I don't know if all the others have been this way, but it seems more difficult than it needs to be. You have to push it down DIRECTLY from the top or you won't have any luck, and if you take a close look at the cover there really isn't much top. I'm not kidding about this. If you have fat fingers (and I don't) it may be even harder for you.
3) Access to the HDMI port is just a plastic clip held in place with a cheap rubber attachment. For the price of the camera they should have hinged it like a door.
