High-Powered Pocket Cam: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX66


Are you looking for the ultimate in-between camera, more than you get with your iPhone but without the weight and bulk of a manual shooting SLR? Sony's new ultra-slim, credit-card-sized, AA-battery-thick shooter may be just the ticket. The Cyber-Shot DSC-TX66, while not a model name that is easy to recall, comes with features that make it more than memorable.

The TX66 is equpped with an 18MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and a 24mm equivalent Carl Zeiss lens with 5x optical zoom. What does all that mean? With you—or in spite of you—this camera takes great pictures, good enough to make really nice prints when you return from that trip you just took it on. It focuses fast, even in low light, where this little cam scores high for shooting ability. And once you've captured the moment, you can view your art on a screen that's nearly as big as the camera—about 3.3 inches.
