Sony's cybershot TX5 is water and dust-proof.
Electronics giant Sony has unveiled what it claims it is the world’s thinnest and smallest waterproof camera. Called the Cybershot TX5 the camera can function in depths of up to 3m and is also dust and drop-proof to a height of 1.5m.
Unlike most dust and waterproof devices the TX5 has a metallic rather than rugged rubberised finish. Inside it houses a 10.2mp lens with 4x optical zoom and a 3″ LCD touchscreen on the back.
The camera is available in five colours – black, silver, pink, green & red – and is also designed to deal with freezing temperatures of up to -10 degrees centigrade.
The TX5 has an estimated retail price of €379.
