Sony CyberShot TX5
Sony CyberShot DSC-TX5 digital camera : CyberShot by Sony is all about catching life’s amazing moments, whatever you’re doing. It’s never been more true with the water, dust, shock and freeze-proof new Sony CyberShot TX5: Sony’s first ever camera with high-fashion looks that handles just about anything your active lifestyle can throw at it. At just 17.7mm slim, the Sony CyberShot DSC-TX5 the world’s thinnest and smallest waterproof digital still camera. You’ve never seen another weatherproof camera like the DSC-TX5: available in five stunning colours (black, silver, pink, green, red), the Sony TX5 is equally at home on smart nights out or on chilly mud-splattered cycle treks. |
Sony CyberShot TX5 waterproof camera
Whether you’re skiing, swimming, hiking - or just partying hard - the toughest ever CyberShot keeps pace with the action. Waterproof down to 3m, the Sony CyberShot TX5 lets you keep shooting in the pool or while you’re snorkelling. You can even adjust settings on the intuitive 7.5cm (3”) LCD touchscreen while you’re underwater or wearing gloves. This tough performer also shrugs off dust, and can keep shooting after being dropped from a height of 1.5m. The Sony DSC-TX5 can even deal with freezing conditions down to -10◦C, making Sony’s newest CyberShot an ideal companion for skiing trips or gruelling adventure weekends.
10.2 megapixel Sony CyberShot DSC-TX5 camera
Beneath the tough exterior you’ll find some equally serious imaging features. With a resolution of 10.2 effective megapixels, the advanced Exmor R CMOS Sensor ensures detail-packed pictures, with superlative low-noise imaging performance in low light. It’s a perfect complement for the superb Carl Zeiss lens with 4x optical zoom and 25mm wide angle for perfectly framed shots - from intimate portraits to dramatic travel scenes.
Sony TX5 incorporates an Exmor R CMOS sensor
The power packed combination of Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ processor enables full resolution continuous burst shooting at up to a blazing 10 frames per second - helping you capture even more unique moments. The Sony CyberShot TX5 also offers Handheld Twilight and Anti Motion Blur modes to benefit from a high-speed burst of six frames, cutting picture noise by up to 50% for crisp, natural results in low-light conditions where other compact cameras struggle.
Sony CyberShot TX5 camera offers Sweep Panorama
Intelligent Sweep Panorama enhances an acclaimed CyberShot feature. It’s so easy to use: just press the shutter button once and sweep the camera across the scene. The Sony DSC-TX5 automatically stitches together a burst of high resolution frames to create a single extra wide image. Perfect for landscapes or big family gatherings, this feature now offers improved processing for seamless panoramas, even when people are moving in the frame.
Sony CyberShot DSC-TX5 touchscreen camera
The enhanced touchscreen interface of the Sony CyberShot TX5 makes operation easier than ever. Flick a fingertip to scroll though your images, or drag frequently used functions onto the main menu screen for easy access. Touch an icon on the widescreen LCD and the camera switches instantly to HD movie shooting mode, regardless of your current camera settings. With the new Sony TX5 it’s never been easier to grab that ‘once in a lifetime’ moment.

The Sony CyberShot TX5 camera is also compatible with a wide range of official CyberShot accessories by Sony.
