(SR2) Sony TX5, the underwater camera .

Just recieved a rumor from a new source. This rumor has not be confirmed by any other source.

The source says the TX5, Sony’s underwater point and shoot should be announced soon. “We can glean two things from the title. T means touch screen and since all of Sony’s touch screens are resistive they can actually work underwater and the X indicates the Exmor CMOS system, most likely the BSI R sensor.
Don’t know pricing, or specs, though, based on other X series cameras it’ll be 10mp and likely the 4x Zeiss formula in the lens, though if it’s of the 25mm variety like the TX7 or the 35mm variety like the TX1, that remains to be seen. I am personally hoping for the former.

(SR2) UPDATED -> The Sony Alpha 260

I just received this rumor from one of our new sources:

The Sony Alpha 260 according reports will remain pretty much the same as the current Sony A230 but will increase MP to 14 or 16MP (CMOS) with HD video and is likely to have Live view but it’s believed it will carry ethier the same battery as the 230 or the upcomming NP-FV to keep size down.

UPDATE: The camera should be released late 2010 early 2011.

Reminder: The rumor is from a new source. We will soon see if he has been right with that rumor. Until them we will classify his rumor with the “SR2” value -> “unconfirmed rumor from new source”
