Digital Camera Review

Summary: Sony’s TX series digicams have been around long enough to accumulate a fairly sizable fan base. Last year’s Cyber-shot TX9 was very popular with consumers and its successor, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC TX100V , is now available.
Pros: Pocketable camera, Stylish and tough, Great video quality
Cons: Expensive, Touch screen quirks, Few manual inputs for advanced users
Conclusion: Solid-quality stills for the most part, superior videos (beyond the wind-tunnel noise from the stereo mics), a nice touch interface, 3D capability, built-in GPS and a big, beautiful screen—the TX100V seems like a winner. And it is — except for that 3.5-inch OLED display.
Pros: 16.2-megapixel CMOS imager, Outstanding 1080p videos, Beautiful but frustrating 3.5-inch touch screen, Great styling, even in red
Cons: Screen wipes out in strong sunshine, Background Defocus effects are minimal, Mics do not handle wind well
Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot TX100V is a 16.2MP ultra-compact camera that offers a 3.5-inch OLED touch screen and captures 1080p HD video. As was the case with its sibling Cyber-shot HX7V , I had a chance to go hands-on with the TX100V at CES 2011 for a few minutes.
