Sony TX30 Waterproof Camera £176.98 @ Buy A Camera

Found 8th Jul 2014
I have the TX5 which is a really good waterproof camera. This is the upgraded and latest version of Sony's waterproof line.

I love these cameras because unlike other waterproof cameras, they look very nice and are not 'ruggedized' and are quite light and slim. I also love the fact that you can be in shooting mode ready to take pictures simply by sliding the lens cover down. Quality of pictures is excellent as is video. Panaramic mode is good too.

This is the cheapest I can find it. Please if you vote cold, say why so it can help others. e.g. if you can find it cheaper.

Specifications:
Certified waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and freezeproof
3.3" OLED touchscreen
18.2 megapixels
Magnifying Glass Plus
LED light
AVCHD™ 1080/60i video
Dual record of stills and movies
5x optical zoom

What's it like re waterproofing - a lot of reviews I read seemed to suggest all of the waterproof compacts give out within 12 months or so as the seals can't take much use under water....are these longer lasting?

had the TX10 and this TX30... both prone to crack housing and battery compartment becoming flimsy... both within 6 months of use....

great underwater snaps thou...

Sounds like its worth buying for a trip where you are doing a lot of underwater snaps, grabbing them off it quick and then returning it within warrenty if it breaks but not expecting much more than that....

To be honest, my 3 or 4 year old TX5 is still going strong. I would assume that this TX30 should be of better quality and rated to go deeper underwater. I've not had any problems with battery compartments. Only complaint I have is the silver colouring is chipping away although thats only cosmetic and doesn't affect functionality.
