Features

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a 10.2 megapixel back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS Image Sensor digital camera that is supported by a Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens with BIONZ™ image processing capabilities. This delivers 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080i movie modes for the user. The camera also features a multi-purpose touch screen that gives users the ability to select the focus point with a touch, scroll through images by sliding finger across the screen and one-touch access to the menu. Other features on the camera include Intelligent Sweep Panorama Mode that automatically captures panoramic shots buy pressing the shutter button once and sweeping the camera across the landscape. The camera then automatically stitches the shots together (the camera also detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion); 1080i AVCHD Movie Mode recording capability which can be played back on Blu-ray Disc™ players, Sony® PlayStation®3 systems and compatible PCs and HDTVs; HD MP4 Movie Mode that is compatible with PC or Mac as well as the Web; Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode which automatically detects nine different types of scenes and, within 1/30th of a second, selects the appropriate camera settings; Smile Shutter™ technology that captures a smile the moment it happens; Easy Shooting Mode which automatically selects settings for specific scenes; PhotoMusic which combines images with music (4 tracks, 5 minutes per track) to produce slide shows with standard visual effects (Simple, Nostalgic, Active, and Stylish); and Motion Detection when combined with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces. The camera also features Anti-blink Function which captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking.

  • How is the sound quality

    Does anyone know if it would be good for recording live bands? I want something that takes good pictures and video but has really good audio. So if i took it into a concert or something it wouldnt come out with that realy distorted sound you get with camera phones.
