Your photos there pretty much sold me. The detail on her face in Animator's Palate is striking.

May I ask was it being run in Auto?

You can snorkel with tx5, It is all about clean the camera off properly after a salt water uses. Yeah the slider screen does seem flimsy.

When asked, she says she doesn't care. Everyone else in the family has a EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1050, so they only have a 3x optical.

The ZS7 does have a 12x Optical, despite being a bit bigger, which makes me really consider it. As we tend to travel as a family, having a camera with a bit more zoom may be desired.

TI read somewhere that the TX5 is fresh water only, which would knock it out if we ever were to take it on a cruise. I am sure one of us would forget and jump in the ocean with it. However according to the Sony site, it can be used in salt water, just needs to be rinsed off after.

I do not like the flip down portion on the TX5, when I have played with them in the stores, it just screams "Will break off" for some reason to me.

I would have you other half tried out the camera, since it is for her. See with one's setup she prefers.

If I were to add a pns to my lineup and not needing a long zoom, the s95 would be tops on my list.
