Touch Screen Digital Camera
This camera was an ok purchase if I just wanted to take pictures not in the water. If you take pictures with it in the pool or beach be very careful the battery door can come open and damage the camera instantly...Also, the screen needs to be protected by something and a hard case around the camera is needed so the battery door does not slip open in the water and ruins the camera IMO...

I've had the TX5 for a year now. After my second trip to the beach, water got underneath the paint, bubbled up, and chipped off. The warranty does not cover this. The only thing the warranty will cover is a manufacturer problem. If anything happens to your charger, battery, cord, the paint job, or anything else that can possibly go wrong after you purchase the camera, the warranty will not cover it. Water has also gotten underneath the LCD screen, but the touch screen still works, it's just annoying. The lens is in a bad place. For example, people who use my camera for the first time always naturally want to hold the camera right where the lens is located, thus putting their finger in the photo... but, the camera has a lot of setting options, takes good pictures, and great videos! The TX5 goes with me where ever I go! I LOVE the panoramic view option! That is so cool.

smooth and sleek
I have had the red one over a year now. Just as my warranty was up the edges of paint started to chip off, so I would get the pure metal one if I had the chance again. I ended up putting nail polish on the chipped edge. My new camera! Thought it was oxidized aluminum like on some knives....
I don't get the battery either. You need 2 because the juice runs out so fast. Unlike my old cyber you can't run in and buy AA's from the store in a pinch either. Every time you go out you have to make sure your batteries are freshly charged.
Last complaint: I keep putting my finger on the lens, you need to be a little nimble with it.
The photos are EXCELLENT. Get to know your settings for optimum results... movie clips to you tube AND
I made finalist in a magazine of 20 photos out of like 100!
Already! NIce overall, carl zeiss is the bomb.
