Sony has announced the Cyber-Shot DSC-TX30. Boasting an ability to dive underwater down to 33ft, survive a drop of up to 5 feet, work in temperatures as low as 14 degrees F (-10 C), and be impervious to dust, the TX30 is -- as of February 2013 -- the world's thinnest Lifeproof digital camera. This rugged camera features an 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS image sensor, a 5x optical zoom lens with Advanced Optical Steady Shot, a 3.3-inch touch screen OLED display, Full HD 1080p video recording, and an all new Magnifying Glass Mode with built-in LED lights for "enhanced Macro and close up shooting".

This year's model finds an improved Superior Auto Mode to help newer shooters achieve optimum exposure settings as well as an ideal composition. 10 frames per second high speed burst shooting allows owners to freeze fast action, while Sony's Sweep Panorama Mode captures epic vistas. And if that wasn't enough, there's also a number of Picture Effects settings to help customize HD video in addition to still photographs.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX30 features:
  • Waterproof down to 33ft (10m)
  • Dropproof from up to a 5 foot drop
  • Dustproof
  • Freezeproof down to 14 degrees F (-10 degrees C)
  • 18.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor
  • 5x optical zoom lens
  • Advanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active mode
  • Built in LED marco lights mounted around the lens
  • Improved macro focus down to 1cm from the lens
  • Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode
  • 3.3-inch, Touch screen OLED display
  • 10fps burst mode
  • Full 1080p HD video recording
  • ISO up to 12,800

Look for the Cyber-Shot DSC-TX30 to start showing up at retailers around mid April (2013), with a price tag of $349 USD. Color choices include black, orange, pink, and blue.
