According to one of our most trusted sources, Sony is set to announce two new cameras named DSC-TX1 and DSC-WX1 to compliment its popular DSC-HX1 by the end of July. I happen to love the DSC-HX1 because it’s not quite a DSLR, but it has incredible features and doesn’t break the bank. The DSC-TX1 builds on this momentum by offering 10 megapixels, 4x Optical Zoom, a 3 inch LCD, Type R CMOS and 720P HD video recording in a sub-$400 price range. Our source also mentioned something about a nice curved sliding cover for the TX1, and we were able to confirm that the camera will also be offered in black, blue, pink, and one additional color. The WX1 is similar to the TX1, but will be cheaper and offer 10 megapixels, 5x Optical Zoom, a 2.7 inch LCD, and Type R CMOS with 720P HD video recording. We also have word that both models will also have a G series lens and sweep panorama, but that might be limited to one model over the other.
Fortunately, to further prove our claims, Provantage.com has already published product listings for the DSC-TX1 and DSC-WX1 on its website with the specifications we’ve already mentioned and pricing schemes.
This information is a Sony Insider exclusive, brought to you here first. Image used above is of a DSC-HX1, but we feel that it will probably have similar aesthetics.
