The TX100V is not for everybody – with an MSRP of almost four hundred bucks it costs about four times what Canon’s cheapest digicam sells for and more than twice as much as an average digicam. This little digicam was obviously designed for folks who are seeking a high-end camera, but it allows essentially no user input into the exposure process – so it clearly wasn’t designed for traditional photography enthusiasts.
The TX100V’s attraction is obviously its hip, ultra-moderne iPhone cool look and perfect pocketability. If you’re looking for the perfect pocket camera – you aren’t going to do any better than the TX100V at this point in time. If you’re a photography enthusiast looking for a small responsive and capable image making device, then the TX100V probably isn’t your cup of tea.
