Summary: It’s been a long time since I haven’t been excited by a compact point & shoot. For sure these cameras will never reach what you can achieve with a proper DSLR, but for an everyday shooter that you can easily carry around, both the WX1 and TX1 offer impressive performance (especially in low light).
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX1 is such an amazing fusion of style and technology that it's easy to overlook some pretty basic issues. It's too easy to drop when you're trying to slide the lens cover open, the 16:9 ratio LCD display is an inefficient size for showing stills, and the lens range is...
Pros: Excellent 'sweep panorama' mode; 10-frames-per-second shooting at full resolution; good performance at high ISOs.
Cons: Very expensive; 4x non-wideangle zoom; awkward lens-cover action; wasted screen area in 4:3 stills mode.
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...
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).
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.
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

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
