'Measuring 3.75 by 2.38 by 0.66 inches and weighing five ounces, the DSC-TX1 is small enough to fit into a coat pocket, and it won't take up a lot of room in a purse. '
'If you're all gussied up, you might as well bring a camera like Sony's fashion-conscious, 10.2-megapixel , a touchscreen camera that lets you party instead of fussing with camera settings.
'Like the T90, the TX1 isn't the quickest camera off the mark — shutter lag measures 0.3 second, and in the high-speed burst mode the TX1 captures 10 frames in rapid succession, at an interval of approximately 0.1 second between each shot. '
'Overall, the Sony A550 and A500 look like good camera designs with some interesting innovations that take advantage of the serious CPU power of Sony's processing chips. '
'The Sony A550 delivers several exciting and unusual capabilities, including in-camera high dynamic range images that come out very well, and a full-resolution burst mode of nearly 7 shots per second. '
'Sony’s Alpha DSLR-A550 is a mid-range DSLR aimed at enthusiasts, featuring 14.2 Megapixels, built-in stabilisation, a vertically-tilting VGA screen, two Live View modes and quick continuous shooting at up to 7fps. '
'On the downside, however, the site found that the A550 sits somewhat uncomfortably between the low and high-end, with its slightly stripped down controls turning off pros, and its rather weak performance in auto mode potentially being a problem for beginners. '
