About the Sony DSC-TX20

The Sony DSC-TX20/D Digital Camera (Orange) is a 16.2MP point-and-shoot that boasts water, dust and shock-proof capabilities. That means it is tough enough to stand up to an extreme sport lifestyle, a toddler and life in general. In addition to capturing high-res stills, the DSC-TX20/D also captures 1080/60i HD video using dual record for stills and movies.

A generous 3.0" Xtra Fine touch panel LCD provides a large platform for recording, reviewing and menu navigation. The Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 4x optical zoom lens provides a wide 25-116mm focal length and the added benefit of Sony's Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode Image Stabilization. This ensures that even handheld shots will look smooth and clear.

No matter what you're recording, the DSC-TX20/D stores files to MS Duo, SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. A micro HDMI connection also allows for a one cable connection to your HDTV, for big, beautiful memories on the big screen. Additional highlights of the camera include 10 fps burst capture, 3D still and 3D Sweep Panorama shooting, Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode and more!

Sony DSC-TX20 Features

  • 16.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor: It brings out the full resolving power of the camera's Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain
  • Capture the decisive moment with up to 10 fps: Capture full 16.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal
  • Optical zoom plus Clear image zoom: Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels
  • Photo Creativity: Photo Creativity allows you to fine-tune your exposure settings, such as brightness, color and vividness and quickly choose the right enhancement for your subject
  • Face Detection technology: Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends
  • Soft Skin mode: Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot
  • Motion Detection: Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces
  • Rugged and Stylish: This camera is just as much at home in the water as on a night on the town! The sleek and stylish camera fits the slimmest pocket or purse, yet is waterproof to a depth of 16 ft, shockproof from falls up to approximately 5 ft and dustproof thanks to its airtight construction
  • Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode: Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode for blur-free movies even while walking. Camera-shake compensation using Optical SteadyShot/Active Mode has been improved with the addition of new electronic image stabilization
  • Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode: With Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a high resolution panoramic image providing the ability to zoom in on small details
  • Background Defocus: DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit
  • Smile Shutter technology: Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity
  • Intelligent Scene Recognition mode: Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects 36 different types of scenes and selects the appropriate camera settings. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings
  • Full HD 1080/60i: Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD video. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV
  • 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama mode: Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities. Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way
  • Picture Effect: Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes
  • Superior Auto mode: The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using backlight correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology
  • Anti-blink function: It's frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting
  • Natural Flash: Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash controls the white balance of both the background and main subjects
