My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 Review
Feel and Control
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 is measuring 0.7 by 3.9 by 2.3 inches and weighing in at 4.7 ounces, I think it is not easy to handle for people who has big hands, But the metal shell which do a good job for ensuring the camera body are solid.
There is indeed much to admire about the 3 inch LCD display, The resolution is 920k dots that higher than 460k dots on the other point and shoot waterproof camera, As we know The higher the resolution, which reflected the number of pixels to display, the more that can be rendered more information and greater clarity of the image.
The buttons both on the top and on the left are large enough to press, And there is no problem to use it with the manual.
All about the Performance
Unfortunately, The image quality is not as good as we expect. We find the photo center is clear and sharp, but the strength is
extend to the corner, The picture looks soft on the edges.
The low-light performance of Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 is good with the help of 16.2 Megapixels Exmor R CMOS sensor, Because we can’t find color noise below ISO 1600.
I just like the video recording under the water, Because the waterproof can reach 16 feet and the quality of 1080p/60 video mode is outstanding, And even out of water , The video quality as good as in the water.
The battery life can serve 250 shots after recharged, Although, There is no complimentary battery charger but you can use the port in camera.
Verdict and Discount
“Sony clearly put a lot of care put into the design of the Cyber-shot DSC-TX20. The slim shooter is attractive, the touch-screen interface is top-notch, and the sliding metal faceplate manages to protect the lens and give the camera a unique look. Unfortunately, the compromises necessary to squeeze a 4x zoom lens into a 0.7-inch body result in images that, while sharp in the center, soften to the point of blurriness as you move towards the edges of the frame. You’ll be better off spending your money on a more capable camera like the Olympus Tough TG-820 , Canon PowerShot D20, or our Editors’ Choice Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS—all of which outperform the TX20 on image quality and toughness.” – pcmag
Over all, As the point and shoot camera, The performance Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 is good without some image cons.
