Water, drop and freeze proof Sony CyberShot DSC-TX20 camera debuts

The new Sony CyberShot DSC-TX20 offers a 16MP sensor and 4x optical zoom as well as the ability to withstand being dropped, frozen and dunked underwater.

This tough model can resist being submerged up to 5m underwater and dropped 1.5m. It also has a touchscreen LCD with a 3inch screen and the capacity to take 1080p HD movies.

The TX20 also boasts a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens in what Sony describe as a ‘beautifully slim body’. If the aesthetics are anything like the TX5, the TX20 will look more like a traditional compact than a bulky, shockproof model.
