Digital Camera Description

The Sony Cybershot DSC-TX5 is a Ultra-Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 10 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 125-3200 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 125-3200. With 10 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Sony Cybershot DSC-TX5 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/1600 to 2s. 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.
