My little Sony Cybershot DSC-TX10

Hey all! Today im going to do a review for the first time on Sony Cybershot DSC-TX10. My new camera. Small but superb! Cheap but take nice photos. That it what I like. :)

Okay, lemmie just tell you the storyline of how I met with this camera. Before I even knew about this camera, me and Irfan has already looked at some other camera as well. We were surveying Olympus PEN. At time, the price for Olympus PEN EP-2 is around RM2,000. They’ll give free stuffs like tripod,another spare battery and something that I could not remember. ;p But, the only thing is that, that camera is only 12.3mp but it produces much much higher quality pictures and videos (HD) then my current Olympus camera at that time, the  TOUGH 6020 which is 14mp and only produce HD video up to 720P. Only day, my cousin introduced to me this Sony Cybershot camrera. And I fall in love with it instantly!

First of all, the quality of the picture is AMAZING! it is 16.2 mp for God’s sake! Of course it ie way better than the Olympus PEN or my current OLYMPUS Tough 6020. :) The video is AVCHD or if you want it to be MP4, it could also be done. :) And the most important thing for me in a video is the auto focus and the fastness of the focuses. Seriously, this camera is so far the best I’ve ever seen. It has everything that I want to. :) Well, below are some of the example video that I found from dieselducy’s youtube page:)

Apart from a great video it shots, it also takes great pictures as well. 16.2 mp, what do you expect?! haha. :)

Over all, I am super excited about this camera. Will be trying to shoot underwater (It can goes down until 5m or 16ft) and will let you know the results of it later!
