Sony has brought out a stylish super-thin 12.2 MP Cyber-shot DSC-TX9 camera that features a large 3.5-inch touchscreen with tap-to-focus. Well, this is no ordinary Cyber-shot because it has got 3D built into it. The DSC-TX9 is one of the new kinds of digital cameras that are capable of capturing 3D still images using just a single lens. Using the 3D Sweep Panorama mode, images can be viewed on any 3DTV using the HDMI output present in the camera dock.
Thanks to the powerful BIONZ image processor, in addition to the above, this camera supports 1080i AVCHD movie recording with stereo sound. The back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor can capture better pictures even in dark conditions. There is a lot more in this camera, read the review to find out.
While the bundle is good, it would have been better to include an HDMI cable to connect to an HDTV. Also, you may find yourself running out of space with the 4GB card, especially while recording HD videos. With such a large touchscreen, it would also have made sense to include a carry pouch with this camera to protect the screen. Incidentally, Sony is giving carrying cases with Cyber-shot cameras as a special Diwali offer, but we hope that they extend this offer indefinitely.
