Editors Liked

  • Clean, cool and slender design, unusual for a rugged digital camera, 16.2-megapixel backside-illuminated sensor, 4x Carl Zeiss wide-angle optically stabilized zoom lens, Very agile operations, easy to handle and generally fast to shoot, Powers on quick
  • Sleek design, Waterproof to 16 feet, Sharp, responsive touch screen
  • The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 is a slick, small rugged ultracompact that is fast to focus and shoot, and has plenty of fun shooting options for those looking to do more than just take pictures

Editors Didn't Like

  • The touchscreen display is hard to see and use in bright light, and navigation through screens can be difficult since icons are so small, No GPS or manometer, Not much telephoto reach (100mm equivalent), Soft corners, High chromatic aberration at telep
  • Poor image quality, Very few physical controls
  • The TX20's photo quality is disappointing compared with nonrugged Sony Cyber-shots, and its design is almost too small and slippery to use in water
