Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX10 Digital Camera Singapore Price, Features and Tech Specs

We take a look at the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX10 digital camera, one of the toughest shooters to ever come out of the Sony production line. Join us as we get more intimate with this tough shooter and as always, we will share with you its price in Singapore Dollar (SGD).
Design and construction
Our notion of a shooter that is freeze-proof, shock-proof and waterproof, in short, world-proof is a camera that is large and heavy to allow for components that ensure that the shooter’s innards are sealed. That is shattered by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX10 compact point-and-shoot.
Despite packing the same design and aesthetics that we have grown accustomed to in the T-series of Sony, the DSC-TX10 manages to be a world-proof shooter that foregoes the above-mentioned attributes of the typical shooter having that capabilities but instead packs an extremely slim profile with the same sliding lens cover as that of its predecessors.
The DSC-TX10 measures 96 x 56 x 18 mm and tips the scales at 133 grams with its power pack included. So you see, given those numbers, the DSC-TX10 manages to slide in and fit in the front pocket of your jeans and still not be bothered by anything that might happen to you – you fall off a ditch and get wet or you get run over by a car, the DSC-TX10 will still be working fine despite these mishaps. In short, you can take the DSC-TX10 in the most unforgiving of conditions and you can still expect the shooter to come up with images of exceptional quality every time, all the time.
As mentioned earlier, the DSC-TX10 still has the same characteristics as its predecessors where the shooter packs a very slim profile, has that sliding lens cover and a big-ass touchscreen adorning its back panel with minimal buttons littered all over the frame of the shooter. Sad to say, with this design, the DSC-TX10 doesn’t have a grip that could give way to a secure and firm grip on the shooter. This is compensated however by the fact that the shooter is water-proof and can be used in depths of up to 5 meters.
According to the company, the cover and the buttons of the DSC-TX10 are designed in such a way that they are able to shed water. Gaskets also cover the doors for the HDMI / USB port along with the card and battery compartment to ensure that water, in addition to the elements, is kept out of the guts of the DSC-TX10.

Key features of the DSC-TX10
The DSC-TX10 in terms of its key features is really impressive and the fact that the shooter is able to withstand all things that nature can throw at it is just a bonus, an added appeal of the shooter. For its sensor, the DSC-TX10 packs an EXMOR R CMOS sensor that has an effective resolution of 16.2 megapixels.
In addition to the very capable sensor of the shooter, it is capable of a 4x optical zoom and has a focal range of 25 – 100 mm in 35 mm equivalence. Aside from its stills-snapping capabilities, the DSC-TX10 also lets you record video clips at a Full 1080i HD resolution with the option to use the optical zoom during video capture.
Playback of videos on a big-ass HDTV is also an option by simply hooking up the shooter using an HDMI cable. Not only that, the DSC-TX10 also gives you the option to create a slideshow in HD using the saved images on the shooter wherein music can be overlaid for later viewing on an HDTV.
In terms of its display, the DSC-TX10 follows the footsteps of its predecessors in the T-series and packs a 3-inch touchscreen capable display at its back panel. The display of the DSC-TX10 packs a 921-K dot resolution and it is also capable of Live View. The only snag that we found in the display of the DSC-TX10 is that it is rendered useless when underwater. In short, if you are snorkeling and you need to make adjustments on the shooter, you need to surface first to tinker with the display and then just go back to being submerged after the necessary adjustments have been made.
The bottom line
The market for shooters that pack the attributes that make the DSC-TX10 one of a kind is very competitive but the shooter has one edge over the competition – it is shockproof, waterproof and freezeproof and still manages to look like the typical T-series shooter of Sony. In short, the DSC-TX10 wouldn’t be out of place when used say for example in snapping stills in a children’s party in the same way that it would still perform just as well in places with inhospitable conditions.
