When it comes to the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX200V, we’re talking pretty slim. It even gives a credit card a run for its money. Okay maybe that is exaggerating slightly but this camera is exceptionally thin and it is just the latest in a series of cameras to come out of the Cyber-shot range from Sony.
Personally I’d give this one serious consideration if I wanted a nice compact digital camera to carry around. I’m not one for SLR cameras – I want mine to be nice and small and convenient, and Sony has definitely hit the mark with the DSC-TX200V.
But there is more to this impressive little package than size. If you’re wondering whether a camera as thin as this sacrifices quality and features, think again.
I wouldn’t personally take it swimming with me, but it’s good to know it can cope with repelling water up to a depth of five metres (16 Feet).
This is also an 18.2 megapixel camera, which pushes my current 5 megapixel effort into the dust as far as I’m concerned. I think I am going to have to be unfaithful and be in the queue for this new Sony Cyber-shot effort when it is released.
It might be launching at a price of around $500 (£350), which is more than most compacts, but think about what you’re getting. This is a delightful camera and it proves that good things really do come in small packages.
