This camera literally has every feature the style-conscious automatic user could want. You wont find manual modes here, but every other specification is essentially the best on the point-and-shoot market. The imaging is based on an 18.2 megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor that does 10fps continuous burst and 1080p HD video at 60fps. It looks like that new sensor is actually pretty good, besting its 16-megapixel predecessor at high ISOs while eking out a little extra detail (along with some more noise) in good light. The TX200V is also waterproof to 16 feet, freezeproof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, dustproof, and includes a GPS tracker for those on the go. Although we would have preferred a wider lens, the 28mm-140mm 5x zoom is enough for most uses. The back of the camera is dominated by a high-resolution OLED touchscreen. All these features fit into a miniscule and downright sexy glass body reminiscent of the iPhone. The TX200V will cost you but boy your friends will be jealous.
