Sony unveils waterproof DSC-TX5 and 14 megapixel DSC-H55 digital cameras

Sony unveiled two new Cyber-shot digital cameras  DSC-TX5 and DSC-H55. For the TX5 Sony claims that is “the world’s thinnest and smallest certified waterproof (up to 10 feet deep) digital still camera” and features 10.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is certified to be freeze proof down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, shockproof up to about a 5-foot drop and dust proof.

“Only Sony can deliver a technology-packed, ultra slim, fashionable T-series camera that is also durable. Until now, you couldn’t have it all in one camera” said Kelly Davis, director of the Digital Imaging business at Sony Electronics. “It is so versatile because it’s a great camera for both indoor and outdoor usage. You can easily take it from a day at the beach with the kids to a cocktail party with friends. This camera is also great for activities such as snorkeling, snowboarding or boating.”
