New Sony Cyber-shot Cameras produce DSLR like pictures

/ 7 years ago

Two new Cyber-shot cameras from Sony make it easy to capture the moment with DSLR-style still photos, Full HD video and amazing 3D images.

The Cyber-shot TX55 and WX30 both feature a 16.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and new ‘By Pixel Super Resolution’ technology that boosts zoom range to 10x without quality loss when using 16.2 million pixel resolution. They also both have Picture Effect mode, that helps to broaden the artistic possibilities with no editing software required.

The Cyber-shot TX55 is just 12.2mm slim, and is the world’s thinnest camera that can capture Full HD as aswell as 16.2 mega-pixel still images. The camera is also capable of 42.9 megapixel resolution when using it in panorama mood, as well as having a 3D Sweep Panorama and 3D Still Image to enjoy on your brand new 3D TV. The camera features a 3.3″ Xtra Fine OLED wide touchscreen, which is perfect for showing off your photos and movie clips with incredible detail.

More importantly, the camera has both M2 and microSD slots, giving you the choice of two of the mainstream memory card brands.

A more typical looking camera, but it is still compact. The Cyber-shot WX30 also features Full HD video and 3D shooting, while packaing a 3″ Xtra Fine LCD wide touch screen.

These two cameras are a huge step forward in compact cameras, fitting features better than lots of DSLR’s into a very small camera.

The cameras will be available from September 2011.

    Great news! Hopefully you guys will review one of these!

    No chance of that Leo, I am afraid – however much I'd love to (especially Sony's new phones…)!

    Sad, bec. all I wanna see is how you use a cam, and maybe see some tips/tricks along the way on how to shoot HWs and stuffs 😀

    estimated price?..they should have RAW features or something.. I don't think that they will have DSLR like results, and with good low-noise in their pictures..

    Price = expensive! It is Sony after all. I think these cameras are getting to the point where the difference between (low-end) DSLR and Compact Cameras is getting very small – they are now using decent CMOS sensors and the differences will mostly only come down to the quality of the lens, which is always going to be the advantage of an expensive DSLR. These cameras also won't fare as well in lower-light conditions even with the extra photo processing Sony has included. That said, the resolution is flying over the top of a lot of DSLR's out there and with 10x effective optical zoom they will be brilliant for lots of things. Would be brilliant to test though, as I bet i'd prefer to carry one of these Sony Cameras around all day and get 'very close to DSLR quality' compared to a bulky 'DSLR quality' camera.

    True.. expensive.. maybe cannon will release some more stuff. I like some of the latest canon compacts… You really get your money's worth. I like the "HS" series of canon. Why wouldn't you go for a NEX series by SONY if you want compact DSLR quality?..
