Digital Camera Description

The Sony Cybershot DSC-TX30 is a Ultra-Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 18 Megapixels sensor offers an ISO 80-3200 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 80-3200. With 18 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Sony Cybershot DSC-TX30 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/1600 to 4s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/1600, fast action cannot be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

Sony Cybershot DSC-TX30

The Sony Cybershot DSC-TX30 features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame.

The Sony Cybershot DSC-TX30 is waterproof to a 10 meter depth. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. There is no viewfinder on the Sony Cybershot DSC-TX30 and no provision to add one.
