Slim digital camera with with 3.3" OLED touch screen
A lot of functions in a such small camera.
I love this camera. It's not only fashionable but also has a lot of good feature while shooting and post editing but still has small cons. I will buy W or H series at next time or NEX series.

Great small camera
So I was after a small camera that I can travel with that could take some great pictures. The TX-55 does exactly that.
They also added some great features like extracting colors and made it easy to use each feature. My only complaint about the interface is that you pick a mode then go back to the main screen to then push the menu button to find out what you can customize.
Design - Great overall with 2 things to complain a little bit about. 1) It sometimes feels a bit small and it is easy to get fingers in front of the lens. 2) This is my biggest complaint...If you buy the Sony cover for this model, it screws into the bottom (tri-pod screw) and keeps you from getting to the charge/transfer port without unscrewing the cover. It is a pain but not that bad...still would buy the cover again.
Also...just thought of 1 more minor negative...stop making custom interfaces...just use mini-usb...dang.

Great little camera!
I was apprehensive in ordering this camera before trying since the last Sony camera I had was not very good (bought it without investigating). I also read many reviews about it and had mixed thoughts about getting it. In the end I am glad I did. It is one of the best Sony camera that I have ever owned. The low light shots comes out very clear. The 'fake' optic zoom is amazing. I was on top of the Willis Tower recently (103 floors high) and took great shots of Chicago skylines and many architecturally interesting buildings.

This is a great camera for casual users. It's easy to use and love the touch screen feature, only three buttons. In my opinion, it is the latest expression of advanced technology when it comes to digital cameras. Pretty light camera, fits on the palm of your hand, and it's probably thinner than the index finger. The battery life is fantastic, it gets charged quickly and it's good for taking up to 250 still images with its original battery (I recommend to buy an additional battery just in case). The only one disadvantage I see is its lid, which could get worn out easily. Love the 1080 video resolution and the 3.3" LED touch screen.
