Small, Slick, Rugged ultracompact, Fast to Focus and Shoot


Sony Cyber-shot DSC TX20 The Sony DSC-TX20 Digital Camera is a 16.2Mp point-and-shoot that boasts water-, dust-, and shock-proof capabilities. That means it's tough enough to stand up to an extreme sport lifestyle, a toddler, and life in general. In addition to capturing high res stills, the TX20 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 25-100mm 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 TX20 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! - Feb 28, 2012
