Awesome camera!

by Raven on 7/28/2013

I borrowed this camera from a friend and I had to own it. It takes amazing pictures and has great features. The pop color and the single color is my favorite. I haven't used the underwater feature yet but I have dropped it and it still works great. I would recommend this camera to anyone. Read More

Product Overview

Tough little guy.

Run with a rowdy crowd? The Cyber-shot® TX20 camera was built to keep up. It's waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, yet slim and stylish enough to take anywhere—from whitewater rafting, to girls' night out. With a high-performance 16.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and advanced in-camera stabilization, you're sure to capture incredible photos and Full HD video of all your adventures. So bring on the raging rivers, dusty deserts and rocky ridges—the TX20 is ready for whatever action awaits.

Pixel Power

With a 16.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor, capture high-resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's sharp Carl Zeiss® lens. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced processing technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images—even in challenging low-light conditions.

Practically Everything-proof

Want a camera that keeps up with your active lifestyle, plus delivers high quality photos and Full HD video? The TX20 is waterproof to a depth of 16ft, shockproof from falls of up to 5ft, completely dustproof and slender enough to slip in your pocket and take anywhere—from underwater escapades, to a night on the town.

Amazing HD Movies

Record crystal-clear movies at the highest resolution available with Full HD 1080/60i AVCHD™ video capture. Stunning, fast-motion video with reduced distortion looks great when played back on your HDTV. Notice a perfect photo opp while shooting video? With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.

Never Miss a Moment

Shoot up to 10 frames per second at full 16.2MP resolution. The perfect feature for high-speed sports or capturing a sequence of your buddy's backflip, no matter how fast the action, you know you'll get the shot. Plus, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects for even crisper, clearer high-speed shots.

Say Goodbye to Blur

Don't let a not-so-steady hand prevent you from capturing the moment. Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for camera shake by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Get sharp, blur-free footage in otherwise unsteady situations, like shooting video while swimming.

Capture the Action in 3D

Take your adventure mementos to a whole new dimension. Capture awe-inspiring 3D photos or expansive 3D panoramas with 3D Sweep Panorama™ mode, then relive the moment when you view your photos on your compatible 3D-enabled computer or HDTV.
