Sony has expanded their point-and-shoot digital camera offerings with two decent additions – TX55 and WX30. TX55 is touted as the world’s thinnest camera that can record videos in full HD resolution (AVCHD). The camera features a 16.2 megapixel Exmor R sensor that improves picture quality in low-light scenarios. Additionally, it comes with Sony’s new ‘By Pixel Super Resolution’ technology that captures at 16 megapixel resolution extending the camera zoom to 10x without experiencing quality loss. The camera also comes with Dual Rec function that captures 12 megapixel still photos simultaneously while shooting full HD videos.
Other things present in the TX55 are 3.3-inch OLED touchscreen display, 3D Sweep Panorama support, Memory Stick Micro and microSD/SDHC card support.
The WX30 on the other hand is spec’d similarly to the TX55 but is not that aesthetically pleasing like TX55 and comes with a smaller 3-inch LCD.
Both the cameras will be launched in Europe in September whereas expect TX55 at the same time in US for $350.
