The TX9 is an older model. The TX10 and TX100v share the same, new 16.2 megapixel sensor and the new Sony tricks for stills (e.g., high-resolution panorama, HDR backlight). For stills the TX10 and Tx100v are likely similar (they seem to have the same lens).

The advantages of the TX100v are:

1. It has the highest resolution screen: a 3.5" 1,229K dots OLED.

2. Video! It does 108060p at 28Mbps (AVC). The other TX cameras do not do this, only interlaced modes for AVCHD.

3. There is also a gps and compass.

I've (silly dude ...) TX7 / TX9 / TX100 and like them all. TX7 and TX100 I've in daily use. TX100 especially for videos 1080/50p.

It is important to point out that the TX10 is a "ruggedized" camera - "Certified waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and freeze-proof".

That may be a very important difference for some.

Hey fishy,

you might want to read this review for the tx100v: http://www.squidoo.com/sonytx100vreview

and for the tx10: http://sonytx10.wordpress.com/2011/0...t-tx10-review/

i think tx100v and tx10 are basically the same except the latter is an all-proof cam while the former has some extra features like 1080/60p movie record and GPS.

The tx9 was released last year but looking at the specs, it seems like the features are a bit the same. I was even surprised it's got an Exmor-R already

Also, don't forget that the newer TX10 and TX100V can do the HD Panaramics.

They can do basically the same stuff except 1080/60p video for the TX10.

This is a Youtube version of dim light video of the band taken with the TX100v, which demonstrates the audio capability, and color rendition and noise in dim light:
