I have used Sony Cyber-Shot cameras before and can’t wait to try this new one. Still, I don’t believe that it beats Nikons overally.

I love this Camera just got back from a snowboarding trip, and it works really well for a tough camera, its small as well.  No one even new that it was a tough camra as it is a normal size.  Got some great panoramic photos and 3D photos also, and am really pleased with the quality.  I also purchased a Camera Demon and used this with the Sony TX20 and got some great footage, really high quality.  It is really easy to use while attached to your helmet, as they have a seperate record video button.  All in all a great all round tough camera that gives great images.  Well done Sony!

the touch screen is useless underwater… it’s not satisfactory for people who love to snorkel.

Hi to all, beware of SONY waterproof cameras, specifically CYBER-SHOT models, the battery cover crack resulting in the camera being leaky so you are left without waterproof camera, and what is worse SONY is not responsible of the repair

This camera has been marketed wrong,  I use as an action sport camera on my motorcycle,  it beats the pants off the Hero sports camera.. I bought a second one to attach to my car for my driving while in Hawaii

Supposed to be shock proof but unfortunately it wasn’t. Accidentally dropped it at a height of less than 3 feet and the battery lid cracked. And Sony centres wanted to charge me RM350 to replace the cover. Note that the cover is made from very low quality plastic.

At close to 3 feet, it’s quite a bit more than one could expect from a Shockproof camera, but a battery door is not difficult to replace, so maybe you should buy the part, and put it on yourself. …(assuming that everything else still works okay). Look for the part, at their site and you may find that shipping is included, so it may be worth it.
FYI- Parts can also be found on and where I just found a few, one for $8.00 and several at $9.95 each. I am in the US, but you shouldn’t have much trouble finding this part, even if it’s not available at Sony. Try the Toll-Free number with your Owner’s Guide first, they may be able to order it quicker that way.
(Note: The Part Number is usually stamped inside the Door)
