Yes, we all carry our phones with us and they are good in a pinch, but as the Family Memory Officer, I want quality photos all the time and anywhere. My answer?

Ultimately, all the features in the world are great, but how well does the camera take photos in different places? Let’s look at sample photos that I have taken in the last few months. I put this camera to the test…..
NOTE: All of these photos are untouched. I changed the size so they would load quicker and fit in the page.
Cyber-shot TX20 at Blogging Events
As a Sony Mom, I was given the Sony Cyber-shot TX20 at the Sony Moms event. Here are a few of the photos I took.
Sony TX20 Around The House
The photo taking fun did not end at the Sony Moms event, I used the Sony TX20 to capture some of the moments of my family’s lives.
Sony TX20 On Vacation
When I am on vacation, I want to take photos of everything and I don’t want to worry about whether the photos are going to turn out. The Sony Cyber-shot TX20 was perfect for our family Hawaii vacation.
I stuck it in my pocket or purse and I always had it with me. We spent a LOT of time in the water or at the beach. Because it is waterproof, dustproof and shockproof, I had no problem turning the camera over to my kids. Usually I spend more time protecting my camera than enjoying the beach, but not on this vacation.
As they say, the proof is in the pudding….here is the pudding…
The Sony Cyber-shot TX20 has a very simple to use panorama mode. You hold down the shutter button and move the camera in the direction you want to take the panorama shot. In this case, it was from left to right. Look how awesome that is…
And of course the kids had to test the camera underwater. Why is it that even under water, they have to make faces when they take photos? This was in a pool at night using flash. I love the way the bubbles are caught in the shot.
This next shot is not taken with the Sony Cyber-shot TX20, but I wanted to show you that we really did take the camera underwater….
And last but not least….a sunset photo from Waikiki Beach…
Now you have seen the proof that this camera takes awesome photos anywhere at anytime. This is the camera that is now in my purse all the time. The photos from our Hawaii trip convinced me that the camera was purse-worthy! It replaced the Sony Cyber-shot WX9.
Few Last Comments on the TX20!
Battery – I do have a back-up battery just in case, but I did not have to use it while we were in Hawaii. Each night, I recharged the battery and it lasted throughout the day.
Simple to Use – It is so easy to get awesome photos. Most of the time I left the camera on auto, but play around with the different filters and settings because you can get some really interesting results. Because the camera has a touchscreen, it is easy to get to the different settings. you don’t have to remember which buttons gets you where..
Colors – The Cyber-shot TX20 comes in several different colors. I love the orange. Seriously…having a camera in the color you like makes perfect sense to me. It is also stylish in orange, green, blue, pink and black with matching cases.
Carrying Case– The TX20 has a matching carrying case in the same colors as the camera. the case is also waterproof and can be clipped on your purse, backpack or belt loop.
