Sony 16.2MP EXMOR R Cyber-Shot DSC-TX100V First Look Review by DCR2011-06-10 12:18 | Source
"The TX100V is the world's first ultra-compact digicam to offer 16 megapixel resolution (via its 1:2.33 Exmor R CMOS image sensor) and it features a new 3.5-inch touch screen OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) monitor that completely dominates the back of the camera. OLED screens are known for outstanding blacks, high contrast, and accurate color reproduction. If all that isn't enough, the TX100V's LCD resolution is an amazing 1229k dots making this screen far sharper than those offered by the competition - very important when checking overall sharpness in macro shots and for assessing critical focus in other photographic genres. The TX100V also permits users to geo-tag images and videos. I often point out that the video modes of point-and-shoots can't compete with a full featured camcorder, but I certainly can't say that about the TX100V which generates 1080 HD video at 60 fps in the AVCHD format at a 28 Mbps compression rate. Not all consumer camcorders offer comparable video capabilities, and you can't slip any of those bad-boys in the back pocket of your Levi's. The TX100V also features a 3D shooting mode and a Background Defocus mode for "old school" style portraits.
Sony DSC-TX100V Camera Reviews Roundup
|DPI: "The Sony Cyber-shot TX100V is a feature-loaded compact digital camera. Besides its 16 megapixel CMOS image sensor and 4X zoom lens (a little small for a compact camera these days, even Sony's own super-slim TX55 has a 5X zoom lens), the Sony TX100V is dressed to impress with its 3.5 inch OLED touchscreen, intuitive touchscreen interface, multi-shot capabilities (for panoramas, HDR, low-light and high-speed shooting)..." - Jan 18 2012 More »|
|Digital Camera Review: "Every digital camera manufacturer manages color interpolation slightly differently and experts can often guess with decent accuracy which brand of camera captured a specific (un-manipulated) image. I've felt for a long time that Sonys default color interpolation was the most saturated of any of the other major camera manufacturers, sort of like the Velvia slide film of digicams - with very intense colors. The T..." - Jul 12 2011 More »|
|CameraGear: "The 16.2MP "Exmor R" CMOS sensor used in the TX100V sounds impressive, but the apparent increase in resolution is limited by the 1/2.3" sensor size. More pixels in this case theoretically means more noise, but Sony isn't going to let you see that noise because it aggressively smears out all the noise even starting at the TX100V's base ISO of 125. You can't control noise reduction (NR) with the T..." - May 03 2011 More »|

- Feb 18 2013 simple to use?, Bill Kenopke
I've enjoyed these small easy to use Sony cameras for several years, had several of them, they take amazingly good pictures! This camera has two new features I like, allowing for excessive back lighting & background defocus. Taking videos has always been simple until this camera, the start & stop control is a touch icon on the screen which is awkward to reach &am...

- Feb 12 2013 Good for quick snaps, ALI
Slide , focus and click. Works just fine for clicking near by items. The "Sweep" mode clicks are not that great on capturing details but does a fine job. Easy to carry around.Does its job and does it well. Yet another good purchase from sony for me....
