DSC-TX10 Summary

While it's waterproof, rugged, and slick looking enough to slip into a suit, the Sony TX10's touchscreen doesn't work as well as it should, making this otherwise nice little camera harder to recommend.

Pros

Fast shutter lag; Full HD video with stereo audio; iSweep Panorama mode; Low-light modes.

Cons

Inconsistent touchscreen; Touchscreen doesn't work under water; Sluggish interface; Movies are slow to start recording.

Price and availability

Available in five body colors, the Sony TX10 started shipping in March 2011. Suggested retail price is US$330. Colors include silver, black, green, blue, and pink.
