Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot TX10 proves that a rugged camera doesn’t have to look all bulky and industrial. Small, stylish and looking like a typical Sony ultra-thin camera, the Sony TX10 packs quite a bit of durability in its thin shell, being drop and freezeproof as well as sealed from water and dust.
Pros: Rugged (water, dust, drop and freeze proof) with a stylish design and 3 inch touchscreen, Touch friendly menus, customizable row of 4 icons and help tooltips, Lots of scene modes and fancy shooting features like Sweep Panorama, 3D photo/panorama and HDR mode, Above average battery life, Excellent...
Cons: Overprocessed look on photos; artifacts are visible and finer details are smashed as a result, Touchscreen can sometimes be unresponsive when wet, 4X optical zoom is ‘small’ for this day and age; above average corner softness and color fringing, No manual controls; only one continuous shooting mo...
Summary: After our tests we can say that this camera deserves four stars! The weak point is made by the shape of the optical elements. However, Sony Cyber-shot TX10 is a great device, filled with great technology and features.
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot TX10
is a 16.2 megapixel compact with a 4x stabilised zoom and a 3 inch touch-sensitive screen. Like earlier TX series models it's very slim, with an integral lens protected by a vertically sliding cover when not in use.
Pros: 25mm super-wide-angle., 1080p movies at 25fps., Fast 10fps burst mode., Water/dust/shock/freeze proof ., HDMI port.
Cons: Poor low light/high ISO performance., Extended lag when movie recording., Screen hard to see in daylight.
Summary: If you're on the market for a toughened compact camera that doesn't obviously carry any extra bulk and will look as at home on the counter of the poolside bar as in the pool itself, the Sony CyberShot DSC-TX10 may well fit the bill.
Conclusion: The TX10 feels pricey at just shy of £320 when for a few pounds more you could buy a high performance compact such as Canon’s PowerShot S95 , the Panasonic LX5 or even Sony’s own HX9. However if robustness as well as beauty is your desire, that’s largely missing the point.
Pros: Svelte, pocket sized, attractively finished and constructed, high-ish stills resolution without noise issues at higher ISOs, well saturated colours and evenly exposed results, cheaper than its predecessor - if only just
Cons: We can’t see the sliding lens cover and sand and grit mixing well, ditto the slender body lasting long with deliberate mistreatment, pricey compared to a non strengthened compact, few manual features
Excerpt: Le Sony TX10 fait partie de la catégorie des appareils étanches (étanchéité à une profondeur de 5 m) mais aussi de celle des extra plats (grace notamment à son zoom périscopique) Quels atouts face à la concurrence ?
Pros: Compacité et étanchéité, Capteur CMOS qui permet une offre fonctionnelle intéressante
Cons: Certaines faiblesses optiques de ce type de zoom, La concuurence...
Excerpt: Met de DSC-TX10 geeft Sony opvolging aan de DSC-TX5 Cybershot camera die we begin 2011 onder extreme omstandigheden hebben getest. Net als haar voorloper, zit de kracht van de DSC-TX10 in het ontwerp waardoor hij schokbestendig is tot 1,5 meter en waterdicht tot 5 meter.
Pros: Waterbestendig tot 5 meter, Vriesbestendig tot -18 graden, Valbestendig tot 1,5 meter, 16,2 megapixel camera, FUll-HD Video
Cons: Constructie levert in op lichtgevoeligheid, maar daar staat tegenover dat hij goed waterdicht is.
