Sony Cyber-shot TX200V

Looks like the camera announcement party from last month isn’t over yet. Sony has just announced an ultra-compact premium rugged camera, the Cyber-shot TX200V. The camera has a reinforced glass front (and presumably the back too) and can survive water, dust and freezing temperatures (no word of drops though!). The TX200V also appears to be Sony’s flagship pocket camera with plenty of fancy features, boasting fast performance and a never-seen-before 18.2 megapixel Exmor R image sensor, the highest of any compact camera to date.
