        Trying to decide which Sony to get. Like the idea of waterproof Sony tx10 for one destination once a year or every two years. On the other hand love the ide of the zoom offered by the Sony Hx9v.
        I hear that the waterproof TX10 doesnt always remain waterproof and that the touch screen doesnt respond very well to touch. I cant find a store who has it on a post to try. Any comments from someone who has tried it would be most welcomed:)
