| Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX30 Shock & Waterproof Digital Camera |
Get the perfect camera for your active lifestyle.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX30 is waterproof to a depth of 33 feet, shockproof from falls of about five feet, dustproof and freezeproof. So you can take it to the beach, pool or slopes without a worry -- but it's also slim, stylish and perfect for a night on the town. Featuring a high-resolution 3.3" OLED touchscreen with an impressive 1229K dots, your images will pop with clarity and rich color. Touchscreen convenience makes reviewing shots and adjusting settings a pleasure. And with an 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS image sensor, you'll capture gorgeous, high-quality photos and Full HD 1080/60i videos with this tough waterproof camera, even in challenging low-light conditions.
Capture 18.2MP images even in low-light
With an 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's high quality Carl Zeiss lens. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced processing technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images -- even in challenging low-light conditions.
Back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor
The Exmor R CMOS Sensor allows faster reading of greater amount of pixel information as it employs multi channel output and addition readout as compared to a CCD. In addition, the structural characteristics of the CMOS Sensor provide smear-free images and allow charges to be converted into electric signals with less power consumption.
By combining the CMOS Sensor with the Enhanced Imaging Processor (Sony's original signal processing circuit), it will have a wider dynamic range, high sensitivity, low noise, high-speed reading, and low power consumption. The CMOS Sensor minimizes blowouts or black-crush and offers images with rich gradation.
Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens with 26mm equivalent wide 5x Optical Zoom
The high-performance Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 5x optical zoom lens brings distant subjects closer for video recording as well as for outdoor, sports, and travel photos, and Close Focus shoots close-ups up to within a ½" of the subject. A wide angle of 26mm equivalent wide-angle lens allows you to take wider shots of the scene or group in crowded spaces.
Optical zoom plus Clear image zoom
Zoom in close for great sports, travel and wildlife photos. The Cyber-shot TX30 camera features 5x optical zoom plus 10x Clear Image digital zoom technology to bring you near enough to capture distant details. The camera's powerful processor reduces graininess for crisper, higher-quality close-ups.
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 33 feet, shockproof from falls up to approximately 5 feet and dustproof 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!
Capture the decisive moment with up to 10fps
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.

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. Now it's easier than ever to obtain sharp, blur-free movies even when zooming in unsteady situations, such as shooting with one hand while walking.
3.3" XtraFine Touch LCD Display (921K dots)
Compose your shots on the big, bright 3.3" OLED touchscreen display. Featuring a whopping 1,229K dots for ultra-high resolution and extreme clarity, your photos and videos will pop with rich color and detail. And with touchscreen convenience at your fingertips, adjusting camera settings and reviewing shots is super convenient. Just tap or swipe the screen.
Magnifying Glass Plus mode
Capture ultra fine details -- like the surface of an ice crystal or intricate texture of a flower petal -- using Magnifying Glass Plus mode. Every subtle nuance is translated with depth and accuracy for intriguing, macro-like photographs. Soft LED lighting reduces unwanted shadows and helps bring the photo to life.
Full HD 1080/60i
Record crystal-clear movies in high resolution with HD 1080/60i AVCHD video capture (records in 29-minute segments). Stunning, fast-motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV2. Notice a perfect photo op while shooting video? With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.
Superior Auto mode
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. 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. Superior Auto intelligently detects 36 scenes for still images and movies, making it easy to get the best shot.

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. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.
DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now Sony's point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear.
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.
Intelligent Sweep Panorama
With Intelligent Sweep Panorama 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. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion.
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. Effects include HDR Painting, Richtone Monochrome, Miniature, Toy camera, Pop Color, Partial color, Soft High-key, Watercolor and Illustration.
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 can be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.
