Sony CyberShot TX10
Sony CyberShot DSC TX10 digital camera : Sony unveils five new CyberShot digital still cameras that makes it easy to get DSLR-like quality still images, stunning 3D photos and high-quality full HD videos. Among the new cameras is the 16.2-megapixel Sony CyberShot TX10 digital camera, the world’s first compact digital still camera to include 3D Still Image mode for taking 3D images using only one lens and imager. The Sony TX10 also has innovative Dual Rec (record) technology, for taking still photos during video capture. With Sony’s 16.2-megapixel “Exmor R” back-illuminated CMOS sensor technology, the Sony CyberShot TX10 provides excellent low-light performance, up to 10fps burst shooting and the Intelligent Sweep Panorama feature. |

"Sony is one of the first camera manufacturers in the industry to provide a 16.2MP CMOS sensor, which is a great benefit for consumers," said Kelly Davis, director of the digital imaging group at Sony Electronics. "They are getting the best image quality as well as all of the benefits of the "Exmor R" CMOS sensor technology in the very compact and stylish Sony CyberShot TX10 digital camera. The Sony CyberShot DSC-TX10 camera is a technology-packed, ultra slim, fashionable T-series camera that is also durable."
Sony TX10 waterproof digital camera
Where conversation piece meets workhorse is the 16.2-megapixel Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX10 camera. It is waterproof, shockproof, dustproof and freeze-proof compliant, offers HD movie and 3D photo capture, plus Intelligent Sweep Panorama, an “Exmor R” CMOS sensor that promises crisp clear photos even in low light and a 3-inch LCD with touch screen. Waterproof in up to 16 feet of water for an hour and shockproof up to five feet, the Sony DSC-TX10 lets you take high-quality photos, including panoramic pictures. It also lets you take Full HD 1080i videos of your friends, family or pets underwater.
Sony CyberShot TX10 freeze proof camera
From the tropics to the top of the mountain, the camera is also freeze proof down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, so you can take pictures on your next snowbound adventure. Not only is it good to go in chilly weather, but the sleek Sony CyberShot TX10 camera is durable enough to withstand an accidental drop from up to approximately five feet. Additionally, it is dust proof thanks to its airtight construction, so you can take it with you wherever the dust might kick up.
Sony CyberShot TX10 photos and videos
The Sony CyberShot TX10 digital camera records crystal clear videos at 60i in 1080 AVCHD format. Borrowed from the Handycam camcorder line, the Sony TX10 camera has Dual Rec mode which can shoot video, while simultaneously capturing 3-megapixel digital still pictures (2-megapixel in 4:3 ratio when recording in MP4). The new Sony DSC-TX10 camera features a dedicated still image button and a dedicated movie capture button to make it easy to use for consumers. Dual Rec does not work in 60p mode.
Sony CyberShot DSC-TX10 3D images
Sony makes it easy to create personal 3D content that can be viewed on an HDTV with 3D home theater system. 3D images can be captured using 3D Sweep Panorama mode or the new 3D Still Image mode. In this mode, the Sony DSC-TX10 takes two consecutive shots in different focus positions to calculate the depths, and then it creates left-eye and right-eye images to produce a 3D effect. These images can be enjoyed in 2D or stunning 3D on compatible 3D televisions like Sony’s new BRAVIA KDL-HX820 models (3D-compatible HDMI cables and 3D glasses are also required and are sold separately).
3D Sweep Panorama on the Sony CyberShot TX10
The 3D Sweep Panorama feature lets you take panoramic pictures in one press-and-sweep motion. The high-speed burst of frames is stitched together using innovative processing techniques to automatically create detail-packed 3D panoramas. The Sony TX10 will let you view images in a whole new way. Unlike 3D Sweep Panorama mode, which lets you view your 3D images on compatible 3D television systems, Sweep Multi Angle lets you view images moving in simulated 3D right on the cameras’ LCD screen by tilting the camera back and forth. This shooting feature captures 15 images at different angles and then compiles them into one photo, creating a 3D-like effect on the display.
Sony CyberShot TX10 camera technologies
With improved Superior Auto and Intelligent Auto modes, the new Sony CyberShot TX10 camera captures more dynamic pictures. The digital camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six multi-shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using backlight correction HDR technology and lower image noise using six-shot Multi-shot Layering technology.

Designed to help users learn about the cameras’ features and how to use them on the spot, the “In-Camera Guide” is accessible from the menu button on the camera. Users can search by purpose or keyword and easily access the functions they seek. The Sony CyberShot TX10 digital camera also has a Background Defocus mode, which highlights your subject like a DSLR; Soft Skin mode, which reduces visible blemishes and wrinkles and Natural Flash, which corrects color balance for more natural shots.

The new Sony CyberShot DSC-TX10 digital camera also offers fast capture with up to 10fps at full 16.2-megapixel resolution. With Backlight Correction HDR (High Dynamic Range) in the Scene Selection Shooting mode, the Sony DSC-TX10 digital camera makes it easy to get the best shot in difficult lighting conditions. The Sony CyberShot DSC-TX10 camera compiles two images in Backlight Correction HDR mode, enabling crisp details in difficult lighting.
