Another day another point and shoot…or is it? Sony’s TX5 is a tough as nails digital camera that is ready to go a few rounds with the elements and then some. It can survive in down to 14 degree F, be dropped 5 feet, submerged in up to 3m of water and kicked around in the Mojave’s dust and keep on ticking.
On board is a 10.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, 4x optical zoom with image stabilization, 3-inch touchscreen LCD, a 720p movie mode and 10fps burst mode. It looks like it will be available in a variety of finishes and hit the street this April for $350.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
