Excerpt: Sony's new DSC-TX1 is driven almost completely by a touch-based interface. This being the case the rear of the camera is dominated by a large 3-inch LCD, though there are a few buttons (such as shutter control and zoom) strewn across the camera's top body.
Excerpt: If you thought that touch-screens were just for phones, then think again – Sony have installed one in their latest Cyber-Shot offering, the DSC-TX1. Retailing from around £225, this point and click camera isn’t cheap, but is packed with features, looks stylish and sophisticated and, most importantly, takes some very good photos.
Excerpt: Available in five different colors (gray, silver, gold, pink and "non-blue"), the Cybershot DSC-TX1 Sony's 10.2 megapixel back to wearing what has become a classic Cybershot dress. Usual solid and well finished metal body, rounded lines, compact size (93.8 x58, 2mm) and - above all - thin (16.5 mm). The feeling is that of holding the best technology concentrated in a very narrow size, but will this really happen?
Excerpt: (1 items) The holiday season is here, as are the accompanying parties and celebratory events. If you're all gussied up, you might as well bring a camera like Sony's fashion-conscious, 10.2-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC TX1 , a touchscreen camera that lets you party instead of fussing with camera settings. Measuring 3.75 by 2.38 by 0.66 inches and weighing five ounces, the DSC-TX1 is small enough to fit into a coat pocket, and it won't take up a lot of room in a purse.
Pros: Sweep Panorama is a model implementation, Stylish design, Well-implemented and easy-to-use touchscreen UI
Cons: Can't change shooting modes quickly, Small shutter button and fragile zoom switch
Conclusion: We have to look at this camera as a version-0.9 offering. Although it’s almost fully developed, it’s not all the way there. Sweep Panorama and Handheld Twilight are really good features, as is the 10-frames-per-second shooting. Yet colors were uneven, and focusing isn’t as good or accurate as we’d like. Given these issues, this one is hard to recommend. Hopefully, the implementation of Exmor R technology in the WX1 or future models will resolve these issues.
Conclusion: Taking into a count all the features the Sony Cybershot DSC TX1 has, plus the fast shutter response times I think this camera works very well. Picture quality is good without being perfect and I found very little to trouble me. All in all this is an impressive camera.
Pros: Ease of use - features - design and style - minimal shutter delay - fast turn on time
A thin and quick camera with an advanced image processor

Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX1 is a super-slim camera that packs in a competent image sensor and takes reasonable photos. It's not particularly fast and its high ISO settings introduce significant noise, but it might be a decent camera to take out for a night on the town.
Pros: Good low light shooting with new image sensor
