2 Sony Cyber-shot TX10
Sony, $499 sony.com.au
★★★★ YOU’D never guess this Sony camera is a rugged model. Its 1.7cm-thin body hardly says ‘‘tough stuff’’, and its locked-down openings are subtle. Despite its delicate looks, the Cyber-shot TX10 is dustproof, waterproof to 5m and shockproof to 1.5m. Naturally, we tested this by dropping it on to a concrete floor several times. It emerged without a mark. It also survived the immersion test. The camera offers 16.2-megapixel resolution and, like other TX models, uses a sliding lens cover as an on-switch. It also has a 3-inch touch-sensitive screen with settings from smart Auto mode to ‘‘iSweep Panorama’’.
