Lots of Fun Shooting Options to do More Than Only Take Pictures


Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX66 The Sony DSC-TX66 Digital Camera is an 18.2Mp point-and-shoot with a number of things going for it, including superb high definition capture. Capable of capturing 1080/60i movies with dual record of stills and movies, the TX66 is an all-in-one memory making machine. Quality features like a large 3.3" OLED touchscreen, 5x optical and 10x clear image zoom, and a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens all work hard to provide you with high-quality memories that will last a lifetime.

In addition, the TX66 is a super-slim camera. It's only as thick as a single AA battery, making the TX66 an ideal companion at all times. Other features include 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama mode, Picture Effect, and a feature called Background Defocus for images where the subjects pops out of the scene. Brightness, color, and vividness can all be adjusted with the Photo Creativity mode, and of course face detection and Smile Shutter technologies ensure that everyone looks their best in every shot.

iSCN automatically adjusts the camera's settings by detecting 36 different scene conditions and deciding what is best for that individual shot. Natural Flash, meanwhile, corrects color balance for lifelike shots. Anti-blink, Face Priority, Red-eye Reduction, Motion Detection and more save your memories from what used to be the hazards incumbent in shooting snapshots.  -  Feb 28, 2012
