Sony Cyber-shot TX66 Digital Camera Review$349.99
- Image Quality
Typical of a pocket camera, the TX66 takes photos best suited for sharing online. At small and medium viewing sizes (think Facebook), the image quality is very good in any shooting situation, even low light. Colors are vibrant, and shots are clean and smooth up through ISO 800, then again at ISO 6400 and 12800 thanks to a smart multi-photo composite feature. At larger viewing sizes, its limitations become much more obvious. Photos are so clean because noise reduction buffs away fine details and textures, and the lens appears to be pretty soft in the first place. As long as you don't make huge prints, you won't notice. By that logic, this might as well just be a 10 or 12 megapixel camera instead, but consumers have demonstrated time and again that a big number is the best number.
