I've been a loyal user of Sony point and shoot cameras for the last 5+ years. This model has many marked improvements and more intuitive features over my previous DSC-T300. The pictures taken thus far utilizing the night shot, panoramic and high speed image capture modes has truly impressed me! Don't let it's surprisingly compact size deceive you into thinking it's not packed with performance or options. I used this camera in conjunction with the available marine pack (plus an external light source) on my trip to Maldives. The images were absolutely breathtaking!! From taking pictures on the beach, to the dance floor or sports arena, to scuba diving, you'll be prepared for almost any adventure, anywhere! I do highly recommed purchasing the faster PRO-HG Duo HX memory sticks with this camera as well.

Not as good as it should be

Many blur pictures
Lens on the left upper side makes it easy to have a 'finger' on the pictures, specially when asking for someone to take a picture for you.

Good portable camera, would not pay more than $200 for it.

              I purchased this as a Christmas present for my 17 year old daughter. Her most specific request about a camera was that it be small.
              Well this fit the bill! She can put this little baby in the back pocket of her jeans with no problem. She also really likes the fact that the zoom lens is internal. Hopefully this will save on the "lens" errors we always seem to get with digital cameras.
              By the way, so far the pictures have come out great too!

                I'm an amateur, and know that I will never carry heavy equipment around, but want to take lots of shots during visits with my grandson, on vacations, or special events at work. After reading many reviews, I bought the Cyber-Shot. B&H was cheaper than anywhere else, and got the camera to me quickly, even during the busy holiday season. It's easy to use, and has still and movie modes. Lot's of features, and not that hard to understand how they work.

                  I bought this camera for my 13 year old daughter as a Christmas gift. She absolutely loves it. I think the picture quality is very impressive and the features on the camera are great. The panoramic sweep is awesome. In fact I may even purchase one for myself. I have never been dissatisfied with a Sony product, so as always I do recommend this as a great point and shoot camera to have. The only thing I found surprising is that there is no black and white option on the camera.

The automatic switch to night mode or close up shot is convenient for amateur photographers who would like to take better pictures. The camera is slick and the touch screen feels modern. Overall, best camera for its price!

                        The camera isn't sesitive to hand shake so you can move&and make quality pictures.
                        the camera so theen and compactical so you can put it in your pocket. I'm realy enjoy to use the movie option and to see the hd feature om my tv.

                          Great little camera. I purchased this for my wife as she has wanted a small light "point-n-shoot" for some time now. We have 5 grandchildren and this camera seems to fill the bill very well. Easy enough for a 'nana' yet has some good features which are simple to set and use. Fits into her purse easily, is light and the 16gig SD card provides all the room necessary for all the pics she can shoot PLUS that needed video too.

                            Got my Sony TX1 THE VERY NEXT DAY! Camera fits in my shirt pocket, 10mp! 720p HD video - with optical image stabilization! As an added bonus, its a Sony! Great pictures and video especially in low light where you don't want to use a flash. Big touch screen display. I love this thing! Great price and lightning [...] Nobody better!
