Sleek camera w/3.5" LCD/HD movie
Great Camera, Great Price, Great Results
This Sony DSC-TX100V model takes superb photos and amazing movies.
Natural sunlight-based images are stunning.
I love the background 'De-Focus' and the 'Panorama' function really works.
The price is NOW only $199 for the DSC-TX100V. Wow !!
The price used to be $379, then $329, then $299.
At prior price points, this quality imaging camera had some niggles / quirks.
But at this new price point, there is no excuse Not to buy this camera - niggles or no.
Yes, the touch screen is a tiny bit twitchy, but no more so than other touch products.
Despite what a few people have mentioned, I've not experienced any lag time
from turning on to picture time - slide cover down OR press button once to activate,
raise to view screen, press button, click - maximum 1 to 1.25 seconds. Easy. Breezy.
Same for video shooting. I love that you can change zoom levels while recording.
The max. zoom level is fine for me, if I needed more I wouldn't use a pocket camera -
and besides its an optical zoom, not digital zoom, so the images are clear.
Make sure you have a fast memory card - labelled Class 6 or better (Class 10 is best).
A new model, DSC-TX20 was just announced Feb. 28, 2012. It's basically a
ruggedized and slightly smaller version of the TX100V, but for $330 ! Whew.
At 130 bucks (53%) LESS, I'll stick with the 2011 TX100V thank you very much.

Great Camera, Resonable Price, Features Galore!
I love this camera! I have had a bunch of different cameras over the years including a $1400 Sony Digital SLR, and this camera beats them all hands down! It takes fantastic pictures and video, is very easy to use and is so small you can easily carry it in your pocket or purse. You have to be carefull when using it with the touch screen as you can hit something by mistake, but that takes a little bit of getting used to before you catch on. Being totally automatic is great and works wonderfully, so you only have to worry about zooming in and out and taking the picture! How easy is that?? If you're looking for a reasonably priced small format camera that takes SLR quality pictures and video, you won't be dissapointed with this camera for the price!
