    The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 is the 16.2 MP camera distinctively made to fit the obnoxious lifestyles of those who are always in for a fun and adventurous escapade. That is mainly because of its dustproof, shockproof, and waterproof abilities. It may look as if it is weak and meek from the outside, but in reality, it was born ready and game for anything. It has the “Exmor R” CMOS sensor that promotes the grandeur low-light performance.


    This compact camera features the 4x optical zoom that allows you to basically take shots of slightly distant views from anywhere. It has very nice additions like the Anti-blink Function that allows you to take shots that are without the awkward blinking. The Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode is the one that allows amateurs and anybody to just point and shoot as the camera automatically sets the appropriate setting for the type of surrounding. Other features include the Soft Skin mode, Natural Flash, Motion Detection, Smile Shutter technology, Photo Creativity, Motion Detection and so much more. The DSC-TX20, when compared to the previous version which is the DSC-TX10, does not have much of an improvement, or brand new innovations. However, it has developed its old features and made it to be more speedy and accurate.


    People love the fact that this camera is so versatile that whatever you do with it, whether snorkeling, scuba diving, wakeboarding, hiking, skiing and every adventure that you can think of, are made to be more enjoyable. Users are given the freedom to have this compact little camera handy and ready to be used. About the quality of the videos, it is quite fantastic as even just viewing them through the cameras LCD will let you see its visual clarity. How much more if transferred to the computer, right? Also, it has a wall socket for the USB port which means you can charge it anywhere and anytime. Many professional photographers find the quality of the camera to be above average and utterly fantastic. That is due to the fact that it has the characteristics that can take pictures from low lighting conditions and just have a totally balanced picture quality. 


    On the negative side, when it comes to taking shots under water, it will somewhat be impossible to do that. So just a piece of advice, be sure about the adjustments of the camera early on before diving or doing things like that. The battery life may somewhat be an issue for most of the random photographers out there mainly because it can be used for half a day and also have a half empty and half full battery life. It seems that this camera has all the answers to your dilemmas when it comes to photos as they are countered by its top of the line features. The bottom line is that this camera will cater to the needs of adventurous people and those who are looking for a sleek and sophisticated camera that will act as a mini DSLR.
