Sony unveiled the US$350 10-megapixel DSC-TX5 Cyber-shot digital still camera with 4X optical zoom that Sony claims is the world's thinnest and smallest certified waterproof (up to 10 feet deep) digital still camera with Optical SteadyShot image stabilization and touch operation. It is also Sony's first digital camera with a CMOS sensor that is also freeze-proof down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, shockproof up to about a 5-foot drop and dust proof, and it can record HD video. -- Posted Friday, February 19, 2010 by chb
