It is also able to record videos at 720p, but the sound quality will be mono. The camera has a 3 inch LCD to view your clicked pictures and videos.
The more capable sibling of the H55 is the TX5. The TX5 is exactly opposite to H55 and is less than an inch thick. According to Sony, the TX5 is the thinnest waterproof camera in the world. The cam is water proof in up to 10 feet of water, and can also survive drops of up to 5 feet. The TX5 features a 10.2 megapixel lens, with a 3inch touch screen. Like its sibling H55, the TX5 will also be able to record videos in 720p resolution.
The H55 and TX5 cameras features Sony’s Sweep Panorama mode along with Active Mode. The former assists you in taking Panorama images by stiching up to 100 images together. The latter helps in shooting smooth videos when walking or running. Sony’s Smile Shutter and Face Detection technologies are also present. Both the H55 and TX5 support SDHC and Sony’s proprietary Memory Stick card formats.
The H55 and TX5 Cybershot cameras will hit the stores in April, this year and will cost 250$ and 350$, respectively.
