Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7

CNET
23 September 2010
  • Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is capable of capturing colourful, detailed images. This compact camera's touchscreen controls are also clearly labelled and easily navigated, but we're not sure it's the best option in its price range.
  • Pros: Easy to use; fast and responsive touchscreen; slender proportions; solid construction; attractive styling.
  • Cons: Battery life could be better; screen quickly gets smeared with fingerprints; easy for fingertips to wander into shots.

  • Summary: Sony is one of the major producers of high-tech electronic equipment. Its products usually blend the latest technology with a great sense of style. The new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 combines both characteristics. Of course for just under $400, it does so at a high price.
  • Pros: Stylish, solid construction, Excellent performance, Sweep panorama mode
  • Cons: Slightly soft images, Overexposure, Tricky to hold

  • Excerpt: Let’s blow away the smoke—this is one of the best new digicams we’ve reviewed in a long time, well deserving its pick as an Editor’s Choice.

  • Cons: Expensive, Controls could be too small for some; definitely do a hands-on test, Nasty digital artifacts above ISO 800

  • Summary: As I said earlier, the Sony TX7 has become my new favorite point and shoot camera, pushing the S90 off its throne.  I feel like I can take the TX7 on any casual outing and trust it to perform as well as just about any other point and shoot.

  • Summary: The main negatives with regard to the Sony Cyber-shot TX7 are a short-ish battery life, a screen that quickly becomes smeared with fingerprints, a lens location that means it's all too easy for digits to drift into shot, occasional camera shake, and, er, that's about it.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX7 review

  • Excerpt: It seems that buttons are facing extinction, with almost every major camera manufacturer now offering at least one touchscreen model. Most seem to be aimed at gadget lovers more than photographers, though, with daft 14-megapixel sensors and gloomy small-aperture lenses.

One of the smallest Full HD hybrid digital cameras on the market

Good Gear Guide.au
8 May 2010
  • Summary: If you're after a small digital camera that can also shoot Full HD video, then the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a worthy choice. It can capture vibrant colours and a deep black, but it does suffer from chromatic aberration, lens distortion and colour bleeding.
  • Pros: Reasonably good performance in dim light, captures Full HD video, great panorama mode
  • Cons: Noticeable lens distortion, chromatic aberration, can be awkward to hold, noticeable colour bleeding
