A ultra-slim camera for the style-conscious, the TX66 has almost every bell and whistle you can dream up. The headliner here is the new 18.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, a resolution beast whose file sizes will have your computer in conniptions. It appears that the 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. While this and the 3.3-inch OLED screen are great, we aren't sure why you'd choose the TX66 over the less-expensive (yet waterproof) TX20. Both do stereo 1080p video and feature expansive touchscreens, so why not save some money and take it with you to the beach?
