Sony CyberShot DSC TX100V 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 TX100V 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 TX100V also has innovative Dual Rec (record) technology, for taking still photos during video capture. The Sony DSC-TX100V camera is the world’s first compact digital still camera to include full HD (1920 x 1080/60p) video capability. This format provides the least distortion for playback on a high definition television.|

The Sony CyberShot TX100V is also the first CyberShot camera with a 3.5-inch OLED with touch screen that provides deeper blacks and more vibrant color contrast on the screen, all while being thinner and having a faster response time than most LCDs. It’s also useful when shooting movies. With Sony’s 16.2-megapixel “Exmor R” back-illuminated CMOS sensor technology, the Sony TX100V provides excellent low-light performance, up to 10fps burst shooting and the Intelligent Sweep Panorama feature.

With the best of Sony’s technologies, the new Sony CyberShot DSC-TX100V is an ultra slim, sleek camera that can go anywhere and do everything. With full HD 1920 x 1080 at 60p video capability, the Sony CyberShot TX100V digital camera provides stunning, fast motion video smoother playback when shooting action such as sports and capturing better still images when clipping from video.

"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 TX100V digital camera."
Sony CyberShot TX100V pictures in 3D
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-TX100V 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 DSC TX100
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 TX100V 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’ OLED touch 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 DSC-TX100V digital camera technologies
With improved Superior Auto and Intelligent Auto modes, the new Sony CyberShot TX100V 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. Improving simplicity from previous CyberShot models which featured 9 scene modes, the new Sony DSC-TX100V offers 36 Still Picture Mode scenes and Movie Mode scenes. The Sony CyberShot DSC-TX100V digital camera automatically detects a combination of scenes and conditions, making it even easier for consumers to get the best shot. Using the Sony TX100V’s Intelligent Scene Recognition feature, there are 12 recognized scenes including the new Infant, Spotlight and Low Light.
