The Sony DSC-TX7 is a delight to use. It’s solidly constructed for such a small, thin camera and has a beautiful appearance. It’s a very quick performer and has a slick and functional touchscreen interface. I really enjoyed trying all the cool features, especially the sweep panorama mode, and I predict that a year from now, all new cameras being released (except those at the lower end of the price scale) will have this very useful function.
The TX7 has a terrific movie mode and while image quality is good, the combination of slightly soft images and overexposure detracts from the overall quality of the photos. The issues can probably be corrected in-camera by increasing the sharpness and decreasing EV compensation, but they take away some of the luster from what is, in all other respects, an outstanding small camera.
