Some customer reviews of Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX9

Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The party-shot (or "intelligewnt pantilter") is a nice gadget, once you have got from Sony the appropriate base - but its other advatnages include a rapid shutter that makes photographing mobile young children easier than with other cameras; and its slim size is very convenient for keeping in your pocket at all times.
Bad points:
I have yet to find them. The lack of a viewfinder remains a nusiance as I'm usually out in bright sunlight when I'm photographing.

Confirmed purchaser Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant is all i can say. Yes its not as chunky as the SLR's and it doesn't have changeable lenses but as a digital camera its the best i have used to date. The features are fantastic, build quality is excellent, made by Sony who are known for their excellent cybershot camera's. All this in a sleek looking housing. Yes it is pricey for some people but looking at the features it packs inside, its worth the money i don't regret the purchase at all. Thumbs up from me :)
Bad points:
Doesn't have any, that how good it is :)

Brian, Dronfield Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I like the small size and yet a large screen that is reasonably visible outdoors.
Bad points:
The flash produces very strong shadows if there are light surfaces behind the subject. This is much more pronounced than in my previous cameras and really detracts from some pictures.

Jude, Surrey Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The auto-sensing mode means I don't have two switch modes to suit the amount of light. Touch screen technology means less buttons. The camera is compact, light and easy to carry around.
