Default Sony TX20 - should I wait? Or just TX10-it now!?

Hi there,


I was looking at getting the TX10 - basically I want something I can take anywhere without fear of it breaking, and also to use in the snow in the next few weeks.


But I'm not super desperate, and see that the TX20 is out soon. Would you guys say it's worth the wait for a month or two?


Cheers!

I don't think there's a huge difference between the two- however,I'd still wait for the TX20 to come out- as this means the TX10 will be even cheaper..!

True. The issue for me is not so much price, but whether I'd be missing out on a much better camera.
Pricewise, happier to have it now

A quick preview of a "slight" upgrade..?

Good point.
Reading around - the touchscreen lag sounds bad on the tx10.
If only we knew if it was fixed on the tx20 haha

I own the TX5 and am very satisfied with the video-function. I am using the camera for recording movies of underwater-rugby. I am wondering, if the video-quality has improved, and for my sport, 3D-images would be a nice asset..well, I guess we all have to wait. Generally, the Sony and Panasonic product line were almost always top of the field of the outdoor-cameras.

It seems like the TX20 is still worth getting. I've read at http://www.squidoo.com/sony-tx20-review that shooting speed and movie record lags have been fixed. oh, and right now the TX20 is CHEAPER than the TX10! first time I saw newer version to be cheaper
