  • Conclusion: Likewise, the plastic covers protecting the SD card/battery compartment and the connection ports – although they do sport rubber seals to guard against water and muck getting inside – don't offer the same reassurance provided by the double-locking mechanisms on some competitors.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 is gorgeous on the outside thanks to a slick and slim design and a sharp rear touch-screen LCD. This rugged pocket camera is waterproof to 16 feet, but its image quality is very disappointing.
  • Pros: Sleek design. Waterproof to 16 feet. Sharp, responsive touch screen.
  • Cons: Poor image quality. Very few physical controls.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 – the stylish but otherwise rugged compact camera

Gadgetmania
13 March 2012
  • Conclusion: DSC-TX20 makes an impressive addition to Sony’s Cyber-shot series. Its dual-color design gives users the option to choose between fresh colors and classier, monochromatic combinations. Despite its compact and stylish body, that doesn’t make TX20 any more fragile. In fact, it’s designed for rugged conditions able to withstand shock, freezing temperatures, and water submersion.

  • Excerpt: To look at the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 digital compact camera, you'd be mistaken in thinking that it's another run of the mill model.

Slide down the front cover and you're greeted by a Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar lens.

  • Conclusion: While it may not be a leading light in terms of the image quality it's capable of producing, as an everyday camera the Sony TX20 is a pretty good all-rounder, with the added bonus of being able to withstand more punishment than your average compact.

  • Cons: Surface is slippery even when dry, Buttons might be too small for some hands, Can't use touchscreen underwater
