About Sony DSC-TX30

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX30 digital camera captures crystal-clear pics and video under water and poolside without worry. This pint-sized powerhouse packs in 18.2MP, plus it's waterproof, dust-proof, freeze-proof and shock-proof. A 3.3" touchscreen provides ultra-sharp detail on its OLED display. For intricately detailed close-ups, built-in LED lights do the trick without casting shadows from the camera. 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 33 feet, shock-proof from falls up to approximately 5 feet and dust-proof thanks to its airtight construction. This durable camera can even withstand extreme weather conditions, as it is operable as low as 14 degree Fahrenheit.

Seamlessly shifting from underwater marvels to a night on the town, the TX30 always makes it easy to get the best shot! Still photos and movies can be beautifully displayed on the 3.3" OLED with touch-screen (1229K dots). The organic light emitting display (OLED) shows the image through the lens with higher contrast and a wider viewing angle than conventional LCDs, for powerful, vivid playback. And, its high-speed response is faster than ordinary LCDs for smoother playback of dynamic action. The 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor captures ultra-high definition images that take full advantage of the camera's sharp Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens. The sensor enables advanced processing that reduces noise levels, resulting in stunning low light images with incredible details.

Magnifying Glass Plus and LED lights help capture intricate detail on subjects as close as 1/3". The LED lights help illuminate the subject and remove any shadows created by the close proximity of the camera. Record crystal clear movies in high resolution with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD video. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV. With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time. 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 and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.

Sony's Active Mode image stabilization gives you the freedom to shoot movies even while walking or running. 2-way Active Mode corrects for both vertical and horizontal motion. Enhanced Superior Auto supports scenes with dynamic motion to provide beautiful results even in dark situations. The result is clearer images with less blur. Capture full 18.2 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. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects.

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. Beauty Effects allows edits to skin tones, skin smoothing, shine removal, eye widening, and teeth whitening. Beauty Effects can be combined to further enhance the image.

SONY will not fix your camera


from Denver, CO  -  Casual Photographer

SONY denied my warranty claim because the camera had scratches on it. So much for a durable "shock proof" camera. Repair center could not identify for me where on the camera it had damage from dropping because it was never dropped but they still refused to fix it. In-camera charging failed, which is the only way to charge it, so now I have a worthless piece of metal. Consumer Reports says 1 in 10 SONY cameras need repaired. You better hope you don't get one that malfunctions or you'll be out of luck and money.

Unfortunately Unlucky....


from Houston, Texas

I would say best waterproof camera out there. Great in high light and fast capture is good. Pros: -Beautiful design -Good quality -Video recording is amazing -Has simi 3D capability -HDMI out -Can add music and view slide shows -Great display -Touch screen -Magnifying glass shot is great -Power on and capture time is fast Cons: -Touch UI seemed slow and laggy -Low light pictures didn't turn out too well -Zoom isn't as good as they show (of course but i was optimistic and believing) -Filters and scenes I thought were useless -Slider got ruined easily -Panoramic didn't work well -No Wifi -Having to open the battery door just to charge seemed dangerous to the rubber gasket -Battery life wasn't good -Battery indicator goes from 3 to 2 then back to 4 and then 3 etc... wasn't very accurate Sad ending: Unfortunately was using it in the lake even with the floating strap bought from Sony and it got away from me and never saw it float =( lost and never found =,( If prices drop low enough might buy it again. It hurts to have lost such a great device. Wished to get more time from it...
