Sony Cyber-shot TX20

If you fancied the waterproof all-glass Cyber-shot TX200V that Sony introduced last month but wanted something that is actually shockproof and not as bank-breaking, take a look at the new rugged Sony Cyber-shot TX20 that Sony introduced today.

The TX20 replaced last year’s model, the Sony TX10 which we recently reviewed, with minimal changes; which include new body color designs, improved focusing performance, addition of Picture Effects and ability to take still photos while recording movies
