TX9: World’s Smallest 3D Camera unveiled by Sony
Sony really loves to steal money from our pockets because they release another set of awesome digital touch-screen cameras in their TX, T, and W series. Last July 7, 2010 in San Diego, Sony unveiled DSC-TX9, together with the DSC-WX5 and DSC-T99. DSC-TX9 is the world’s smallest 3D camera to date.
TX9 is powered by 12.2 megapixel Exmor CMOS Sensor. It’s so-called “Superior Auto mode” captures a high-speed burst of up to six frames when you press the shutter button. Same with other cameras, its settings are automatically optimised according to shooting conditions, that’s why it’s called “auto” right?
What’s great about TX9 is it can record HD videos up to 1080i and it can capture 3D photos! Oh, wow, photos in 3D! Isn’t it amazing! We’re in the future baby! I haven’t seen or tried TX9 yet, but I bet its features will make me wow, as I already owned 3 TX cameras and 1 T series camera and guess what? All of them satisfied my cravings for digital images.
Anyway, my DMC-LX3 is still better if we compare the quality of images taken. But Sony’s TX series is slimmer and lighter, packed with fantastic features for kids (3D feature, sweep panorama shooting, and touchscreen awesomeness). But we shouldn’t compare these two as we all know that the LX3 (with its Leica lens) is far more superior that all of Sony’s digital cameras.
I will definitely post sample 3D pictures of TX9 once I get my hands on it!
