Incredible design and quality,.
I just got my Sony Cyber Shot Camera DSC-TX20 (Black) the other day and I’ve checked it and compared it to the previous DSC-TX10 that I had for one year and I offered it to my brother in law.
I’ve been very delighted with the DSC-TX10 and I like the brand-new DSC-TX20 a lot. There is no substantial changes, the main ones are that the shooter speed is enhanced to 4 sec (from 2 sec) for night shooting and the new one has video recording in 60i in 1080 AVCHD.
Also the panorama option has actually been increased given that the DSC-TX10’s entry, offering solid panoramas of up to 360 degrees.
Sony also enhanced focusing speed. I think these are generally all the distinctions.
Waterproofing and the design hasn’t change at all. I red a lot of remarks about the waterproofing on the TX10 – both excellent and bed.
I am diving diver and I’ve been doing undersea photography for numerous years now.
This camera is not developed for that, it’s ranked just for 5 meters (16 foot) which I checked in our neighborhood swimming pool and it works simply fine.
Naturally you will have to read the instructions and make sure that the seals are effectively closed.
The video camera is fantastic for any pool and for a great deal of fun with the kids.
Bottom line – it’s remarkable Cyber Shot Camera. For it’s course I think it’s the very best on the marketplace in the meantime. If you are looking for great pictures from a small camera – that’s the one.
Good cam. Best-in-class picture quality.
I purchased this video camera after trying (and being dissatisfied with) the Nikon Coolpix. The image quality from the Sony camera was light-years much better than the Nikon.
- Extremely small.
- The portable metal cover did a good job protecting the lens, and was simple to open with one hand.
- Superb image quality and superb videos.
- 16Megapix quality.
- An excellent zoom feature.
- Pricey (most expensive in its class?).
- The record, on/off, screen, photo buttons are all WAY TOO CLOSE TO EACH OTHER … It is occasionally difficult to press just the button you want.
- The paperwork is not excellent (the documentation is kept online in the cam and is not extremely extensive.
- The lens is found really close to the top-left of the camera and your finger will make its way into a lot of of your pictures.
- The electronic viewfinder is challenging to see in bright sunlight (all cameras that have a similar viewfinder will have this trouble).
Having stated this, I’m happy I bought it and pleased with the quality and the item.
Excellent little cam!
We’ve had this little person through a Maui vacation, and it’s been excellent !!
First off, some excellent points:.
It’s definitely water resistant, and has a “underwater” scene mode to help you shoot undersea. I’m not precisely sure exactly what it does, however it seems to work better underwater with the underwater mode allowed, the car mode oftens kick the video camera into Macro mode undersea.
We’ve taken it snorkeling with us, in addition to played in the waves and browse with it and it worked excellently. You can see the display while snorkeling without too lots of problems, the video camera does have a touchscreen, and it automatically disables the touchscreen while under water.
This does imply that you’re restricted to changing setups while you’re above water, but you can start and stop video recording as well as take photos, zoom, and turn the camera on and off without the touchscreen.
The constructed in panorama mode is pretty fantastic, it reminds me of the panorama mode in iOS 6, works basically the same way, turn your cam vertically and move it efficiently and quickly from one side to the various other.
The image quality is outstanding for what it is, the image sensor is an actual CMOS sensor (albeit still a small one) both “dry land” photos and undersea photos turn out great. I generally shoot with a DSLR and great lenses so impressing me with a point-n-shoot has actually constantly been tough.
The video quality is outstanding as well, I haven’t seen any of it on the HDTV yet however viewing them on the developed in LCD they’ve been excellent.
It likewise takes conventional SD cards as well, which since it’s a Sony device is without a doubt a plus.
The waterproof doors that cover the battery/sd card and the HDMI / USB port both have indications to indicate that they’re closed entirely, ideally to help stay clear of poorly latched doors.
The charger is simply a USB port on a wall socket, this indicates that you can charge the camera in the automobile with a 12V to USB adapter, like the ones made use of to charge cellular phone.
As I discussed earlier, the touchscreen is pointless when you’re swimming or snorkeling with it, which implies adjusting the settings isn’t possible throughout your undersea trips.
The sliding lens cover can get dirt/sand caught under it, but if you keep knowledgeable about it and rinse it out it doesn’t appear to cause any problems. Likewise the directions recommend rinsing the video camera out with fresh water if you utilize it in salt water.
The USB cable television isn’t really a standard micro USB plug, in truth I have no idea what plug it is, I’ve just seen it as soon as on this video camera. That suggests that if you lose your USB cable, charging the video camera isn’t really going to be possible.
Battery life isn’t extremely long, using it for most of the day brought the battery down to the half range. However since you can charge it off of any USB port, we charge it in the vehicle.
The cam body its self is made of aluminum and isn’t rubberized like most water-proof cameras, this indicates that the aluminum could get scratched or dented. Nevertheless this hasn’t taken place to mine yet.
The bottom line is, that this is an outstanding resilient cam that is also water-proof! It’s a strong investment if you’re traveling or in requirement of something waterproof!
