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?
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
Excerpt: The DSC-TX1 is the latest model in a long line of fashion-conscious Sony Cyber-shot touch-screen compact cameras, coming after the T90 and T900 which rated well on Photography Blog earlier this year. Like both of those earlier models, the TX1 features a sliding faceplate that covers and protects the lens when not in use, and also acts as another means of activating the camera when it's slid open.
