Sony launches DSC-TX1 and DSC-WX1 cameras
Bangalore: Sony has announced two new Cyber-shot cameras DSC-TX1 and DSC-WX1. Sony uses 'Exmor R' back illuminated CMOS sensor technology which provides twice the sensitivity of cameras with traditional image sensors and drastically improved low-light performance and results in cleaner images with less noise. In addition, the TX1 and WX1 cameras also include Sweep Panorama and 10 frames per second burst shooting features.

The TX1 and WX1 cameras incorporate the hand-held twilight and anti-motion blur multi-shot modes introduced in Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX1. Using 'Exmor R' CMOS sensor's high speed, these modes capture six separate images in less than a second and utilize Sony's BIONZ processor to combine the shots into a single image of extraordinary detail. The TX1 slim camera is just 16.5mm and has a 10.2 mega-pixel and offers Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 4x telescopic zoom. It has a 3-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus display. WX1 slim camera is also 10.2 mega-pixels and has a 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus display.

These cameras include the most recent Sony technology, including, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode which, recognizes scenes, lighting conditions and faces, and adjusts settings resulting in clearer images, faces with more natural skin tone and less blur; Face Detection that detects up to eight faces and optimizes focus, flash, exposure and white balance and intelligent Scene (iSCN) that delivers nine Scene Selection modes to quickly adjust for specific shooting conditions.

With HD video capability, these cameras record HD movies in 720p high definition MPEG4 format for stunning large-screen home movie playback. You can record up to 29 minutes (or up to 2GB file size) in 720p format. The TX1 is available in gray for 20,990 while the WX1 is available in black for 19,990 across all Sony stores.
