Sony just recently updated one of my favorite waterproof cameras, DSC-TX10. The DSC-TX20 looks and handles pretty much the same as the DSC-TX10.
And to me, this is pretty much the same camera with a new design. But thats specs, images and video shows a lot more. It handles quite well and its diffidently the ultimate beach and vacation camera. Just as all $150+ Cyber-shot cameras these days, focus is blazing fast. Would i pick the TX20 over the TX10 at the current price, no.
I took this puppy for a spin. These photos were straight from the camera on Auto.
It finally arrived today, the Sony Alpha A57. I was eager to try out the video mode, cant say I’m impressed. The HX9V delivers better than this. Come an, Sony.
The colors are washed out and looks like it barely has 720 lines.

On the other hand, if you want an good DSLR for the family, this camera is a treat. It’s as easy as a point and shoot and does really deliver when it comes to photo quality.
Don’t forget their 12fps with continues focus, perfect for soccer mom’s to use at their kids sports events or the amateur wild life photographer.

Finally, its here. The Sony DSC-HX20V. Did this quick and dirty comparison with the old HX9v. The first thing that strikes me is the contrast out of the box on the HX20V. Looks a lot more pleasing to the eyes and will aid people not too fond of post processing. The angle of view is a little off since the HX9 has a 24mm lens and the HX20, 25mm.
