The Sony Cybershot DSC-TX55 continues to show the relentless march of value in mid range consumer digital cameras.  It’s available for pre-order from Amazon for the paltry price of $349.  But seriously, why in the heck should you even consider this thing?

Well, if you are looking for a powerful camera in a super small footprint, this is your camera.  It weighs 3.8 ounces.  Its dimensions are: 2.2 x 0.5 x 3.8 inches.  Er, that’s thin.  How are they doing that?  Well, the touchscreen Oled screen sure helps.  It also dons the 16.2MP “Exmor R” CMOS sensor for stunning low-light shots.  It also does 1080 HD video.
