Equipped with a foldable, 25 mm equivalent wide-angle 4x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario Tessor lens, the Sony waterproof camera delivers outstanding sharpness and high-quality digital photos while helping to keep the Sony camera compact. The new Waterproof camera from Sony has a 3-inch LCD Plus (230,400 pixel) wide touchscreen display that functions - even underwater. You can focus on your subject, operate the menu and share photos and videos with a touch of the screen - wet or dry. Additionally, you can decorate your photos using the paint feature or scroll through pictures by simply sweeping your finger across the screen.
In addition to making it easy to capture entire landscapes or tall buildings, the sony waterproof camera also helps to manage difficult lighting situations. The “Exmor R” CMOS sensor lets you take high-quality photos in low light without a flash. The Sony waterproof camera will be available in silver, black, pink, green, and red this April for about $350. Pre-sales of the Sony CyberShot DSC-TX5 will start in February 2010. As soon as we receive a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX5 test sample, we will publish a photo gallery with high resolution pictures, followed by an in-depth Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX5 review.
