Cyber-Shot TX200V is Not Science Fiction

Sony continues to push the boundaries of compact digital cameras with its latest T series offering, the DSC-TX200V. This camera features a reinforced glass design that's not only attractive but waterproof to 16 feet as well. The TX200V sports a WVGA 3.3-inch TruBlack OLED touch-screen that fills the entire back with 921k dots.

The compact unit weighs in at 4.6 ounces and measures just 3.8" × 2.4" × 0.7" despite built-in GPS and an 18 megapixel backlit CMOS image sensor. This new Exmor R sensor is coupled with a BIONZ image processor and boasts the highest resolution of any comparably-sized compact digital camera on the market today.

Sony has reduced auto focus times on the TX200V to just 0.13 second (0.25 second in low light) and made it possible to snap 13.5 megapixel still images while recording full 1080p video at 60 frames per second. The slick body design is also freeze proof down to just 14 degrees fahrenheit (-10 celsius) and dust proof to boot.

The lens is a 26mm equivalent with 5X optical zoom. When recording full HD video at 60 frames per second the TX200V uses Optical SteadyShot to keep the image stable. A digital zoom of up to 10X is also available using Sony's Clear Image Zoom technology. Nine Picture Effect options help create custom photos and video when you're looking to create unique imagery right on the camera. 3D shooting modes are also included as well as Soft Skin mode, facial recognition, blink, motion and smile detection.

Sony has packed a variety of cutting edge technology into the TX200V. The unit is expected to start shipping in March for a retail price of $499.

I just saw an article this morning that the SLR market was surging, and the smaller cameras like this might be losing market share. That makes no sense to me because of the HUGE price difference. This is a nice little camera, and priced right too.

The OLED touchscreen has 1,229k dots, not 921k:
