Summary: The TX66 is the first ultra-compact to offer an 18 megapixel resolution. The tiny TX66 will totally blow away any currently available smart phone when it comes to image quality – and it is noticeably less than half the size of the newest Apple and Samsung smart phones, so it is easily small enough to carry with you all the time. The TX66 isn’t cheap, however. With an MSRP of $350 will this camera be able to produce great results from such a small package?
Summary: For those with an artistic flair, Sony has you covered with Photo Creativity and Picture Effects. Creativity allows more manual control over exposure settings such as brightness, color, and vividness. Picture Effects include HDR Painting, Rich-tone Monocrhome, Miniature, Toy Camera, and others. What's great about both Photo Creativity and Picture Effects is that they can, together or interdependently, be added to pictures before or after they are taken.
