Sony Cyber-shot TX5 Hands-On Review

Sony Cyber-shot TX5

The Sony Cyber-shot TX5 is a rugged, point and shoot camera that is touted as dustproof, waterproof, freezeproof and shockproof.  The TX5 features a 10.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor for improved low light performance and noise control.  Additionally, the TX5 features a 4x optical zoom lens with image stabilization and can capture 720p HD video.

Like it’s more powerful sibling, the TX7, the Sony TX5 features a touchscreen LCD for quick and intuitive menu navigation.  The touchscreen LCD also allow you to tap the screen to select your focus point.
