Sony CyberShot TX55: World’s Thinnest HD Camera

If you thought that Sony’s ultracompact Cyber-shot TX100V (announced at CES 2011) was thin, wait ’til you get a load of the newest addition to the line, the Sony Cyber-shot TX55, announced yesterday. At just 12.2mm thin, the TX55 is super pocketable, but it’s still jam-packed with features — in fact, Sony claims it’s the thinnest camera with optical image stabilization. Similar in styling to the slightlymore expensive TX100V, it shares a similar feature set, though not the GPS capability of the TX100V.
