Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66
I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor with CNET and this is a really small camera.
It's Sony's new Cybershot DSC TX66 which is pretty much the same as 2011's TX55 but with a few changes to keep things interesting.
The carryover stuff includes a brilliant 3.3 inch OLED touchscreen and a 5X 26 to 130 millimeter zoom lens, all in an ultracompact body that is no thicker than a AA battery.
The new tech includes a 18 megapixel BSI Sima sensor, an improved autofocus system for faster shooting indoors and out and enhanced low light shooting capabilities.
The TX66 will also capture AVCH video at 1080cci and you can simultaneously capture 13 megapixel photos.
Beyond those things, you get a lot of automatic shooting modes, including Sony's suite panorama and background defocus options, as well as 9 picture effects.
What's nicer is Sony's added some extra control over brightness, color and vividness that can be used even in its intelligent auto mode.
So if you don't like the camera's color processing, you can tweak it for your tastes.
So if you're looking for something better than your smartphone without getting weighed down, this will probably be the one to check out.
I'll let you know for sure though if it's worth its $350 price tag when we get down with all of our testing.
