After putting much trust on its Cyber Shot series, Sony India has unveiled it’s another contestant in the series, DSC-TX55, which is already being touted as the slimmest camera till now. It looks like Sony has managed to raise the bar really high with the launch of DCS-TX55. While the DSC-TX55 sports all standard features of its series, lot of improvement has also been done while adding various interesting qualities into it. For example, Sony has added a 16.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, 5x optical zoom, full HD video recording and most importantly 3D image capture feature.
Sony has claimed that the DSC-TX55 is thinner than an AA-sized battery, which makes it probably the thinnest camera so far across the globe.
Here is the quick list of main features of Sony Cyber Shot DSC-TX55:
- 16.2 Megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor

The newly introduced Exmor R CMOS sensor helps in capturing improved image details and low picture noise, still image mode as well as in Full HD video mode and most remarkably even in low light conditions also. The auto focus feature of camera is claimed to lock onto any subject in time as less as 0.1 seconds.
The 3D feature of this Cyber Shot successor, reportedly captures 3D photos without having large stereoscopic lens. When a picture is clicked, the camera actually takes two consecutive shots; the first image is used to estimate depth while second one is used to create a still 3D image.
