Customer Review

on October 13, 2012
I am a, more or less, forensic photographer. That is to say, that I use my camera for work in the field of marine accident investigation. Sure, I have the Nikon D700 and a myriad of lenses and flash units, but to be honest, the camera I pull out most is the DSC TX20. this is a replacement model for me. I used the DSC TX10 (I think that is what it was) for a long time. This camera was, at first a slight disappointment because when I took it out of the box, I realized that the screen was smaller than on my old one. I had to adjust. No big deal. The photos are nothing short of amazing. I shoot in many dark scenes and enclosed spaces and the flash is so well balanced, I get better results than with the D700. What I love the most, and relish, is the macro. This camera gets into small spaces. I can hold the lens far less than 1/2" away from the subject and get a tight, high resolution photos that, frankly, blows away my Nikkor 105 macro lens that costs more than 4 times what this camera costs. Drawbacks: Small and light weight is not always good in a camera. Steadying the camera becomes a bit of a challenge sometimes as a result. If you work in a dirty environment, the slide front is subject to getting dirt under the edge and the screen is subject to scratches and smudges. I uses a Blackberry phone holster with mine and it is always by my side.
