Hello Andrew.
I am very interested in this camera. As you pointed out that it would not be worth the upgrade to the TX20 from the TX10, I still would like to entertain that idea. This decision hinges upon one feature alone and I was hoping you could shed some light. The TX5, I also own, is basically ready to go as soon as you snap the cover down for shooting stills or video but the TX10 has an annoying boot time associated with its standard operation. When you snap the cover open on the TX10, it now "boots up" and reminds you every time to "ensure your battery door is properly closed," etc. I would rather not have this happen with the TX20. Do you know if they improved upon the TX20s ready time over the TX10?
Please, let me know because I will preorder this camera today! I love the TX series, excellent pocket camera for any out door activties! Takes the best photos and 1080p video of any camera in it's class, hands down!
Thank you!
SC20

I had the same problem when I upgraded from the TX5 to the TX10. The slow boot-up and annoying menu layout made the TX10 a lot less useful. It's not a problem any more as the TX10 flooded on its third brief use under less than 50cm of water. I'm not sure I would trust the TX20, but miss my old TX5.
