Main Rivals

Listed below are some of the rivals of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX5.

Canon Digital IXUS 210

Canon Digital IXUS 210 Review thumbnail

The Canon Digital IXUS 210 (also called the Canon Powershot SD3500 IS) joins the small but growing band of cameras that offer a graceful touch-screen interface rather than a cluttered collection of external controls. Almost every aspect of the IXUS 210's operation can be controlled by interacting with the massive and high-res 3.5 inch LCD screen that dominates the rear of the camera. Other standout features include 14 megapixels, a 5x zoom with 24mm wide-angle setting, and 720p HD movie recording. Mark Goldstein gets all touchy-feely with Canon's second touch screen camera in our Canon Digital IXUS 210 review.

Casio EX-G1

Casio EX-G1 Review thumbnail

The EX-G1 is the first all-action water, dust, shock and freeze -proof camera from Casio, branded with the company's famous G-Shock moniker. This is also the slimmest tough camera in the world, and also beautifully styled and made. The EXG1 is up against some tough competition though, with Olympus very well-established, Panasonic making a recent splash, and Pentax offering some worthy budget alternatives. Read our Casio EX-G1 review to find out it can out-muscle the competition.

It hasn't taken Panasonic long to release their second all-action digicam, the Lumix DMC-FT2.

Samsung ST550 Review thumbnail

The new Samsung ST550 camera pushes the envelope of user interface design, with a incredibly clever touch-screen interface that is finally worth using. Widely promoted in an expensive TV ad campaign, the ST550 (also known as the TL225) has an LCD screen on the front as well as the back, which is used for self-portraits. A 12 megapixel sensor and 4.6x wide-angle zoom complete the key specifications of the ST-550.
