Sony Cyber-shot TX66 Digital Camera Review$349.99
This tiny pocket camera takes solid photos for sharing online, but the price tag is hard to swallow these days.
Think of ultra-thin, ultra-stylish cameras, and Sony Cyber-shots should spring to mind. The TX66 is one of the newest models in the fashion-forward lineup—neither here or there, just kind of floating around amongst the shock- and waterproof TX20 and the TX200V kitchen-sink spectacular. It's really a showpiece for a 3.3-inch OLED touchscreen (prized for their sharp pictures and vibrant colors) and Sony's new 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor.
Ostentatious? Yeah, and wicked expensive, too. We'll cut to the chase: $350 is a lot of money for a point-and-shoot. If you have any sense of value, steer clear. But if you're the kind of person for whom: a) money is no object, b) a camera is an accessory rather than a photographic tool, and c) by some fat chance don't already have the latest iPhone (or something like it), then the TX66 actually has a handful of redeeming values. Read on for more.
The Sony Cyber-shot TX66 is available now for an MSRP of $349 in white, silver, pink, and violet shades.
