The latest Cybershot camera is only 12.2mm thick and packs quite a punch in its slim body.

Sony has announced out a new compact camera and claims that CyberShot TX55 will be the thinnest compact digital camera in town when it arrives later this summer; but there’s a lot more to the seductive little snapper than its slight 12.2mm thickness. Top of the list of intriguing specs is the ability to grab full-resolution 12MP photos while simultaneously shooting HD video.

It comes equipped with 16.2MP Exmor sensor inside. With the camera’s Intelligent Sweep Panorama feature that’ll allow you to grab auto-stitched panoramas of up to 42.9MP. The CyberShot TX55 can also capture 3D photos and video clips if you’re so minded. You can view your handiwork on the 3.3in OLED touchscreen. Sony also promises that you can increase the 5x optical zoom to 10x with the By Pixel Super Resolution function. It claims that the feature can boost magnification without reducing pixel count.

The Sony CyberShot TX55 records 1080i AVCHD video at 60fps in video mode and there’s a 10fps burst mode for still images. There’s also a range of built-in filters including HDR painting, tilt-shift and toy camera modes along with colour and monochrome filters. The compact supports Sony’s 16GB Memory Sticks or 8GB SD cards.

Sony CyberShot TX55 will be released in September for approximately 1300 AED.
