February 28, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The legendary Cyber-shot series from Sony has some new company, with the consumer electronics giant adding a new line. The flagship feature of these snapping devices is that they all feature an updated Exmor R CMOS sensor. In fact, they pack more.

Dubbed Sony Cybershot DSC-TX20, the most rugged model in the line-up is a trendy device. But it offers everything we expect from its name.

On the usability side, you can play anything with the cam, since it is dust proof, waterproof, freeze proof and shock proof. It’s the apt companion for the adventure-traveler. The design is eye-catchy, with the dual color versions. The beautiful glass-design and the tactile texture of the body and the form factor easily make them cute.

Based on specifications too, the cam is not a silly game. The 16 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor gives an effective 12 megapixel resolution to the still pictures clicked with the rig and the 25 mm equivalent lens offers a 4x optical zoom.

You can compose the shot and navigate through the menu easily with the 3 inch LCD touch screen on this device.

The Extra High Sensitivity technology stuffed within the device enhances its ability to shoot noise-free still pictures even in low-light conditions. DSC-TX20 offers video shooting via ‘Dual Record’.

The Full HD movie shooting capability of the rig helps you to record the valuable moments in your day to day life forever.

To meet the creativity needs of the users, the device offers 9 Picture Effect options, which helps the users to make custom-styled photos and videos.

When the new line hits the markets in May, it will have five shade options – orange, green, black, blue and pink. The price tag? Sony puts it close to $330. Will you go for one?
