The Sony DSC-TX20 Digital Camera is a 16.2Mp point-and-shoot that boasts water-, dust-, and shock-proof capabilities. That means it's tough enough to stand up to an extreme sport lifestyle, a toddler, and life in general. In addition to capturing high res stills, the TX20 also captures 1080/60i HD video using dual record for stills and movies.



A generous 3.0" Xtra Fine touch panel LCD provides a large platform for recording, reviewing, and menu navigation. The Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 4x optical zoom lens provides a wide 25-100mm focal length and the added benefit of Sony's Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode Image Stabilization. This ensures that even handheld shots will look smooth and clear.



No matter what you're recording, the TX20 stores files to MS Duo, SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards. A micro HDMI connection also allows for a one cable connection to your HDTV, for big, beautiful memories on the big screen. Additional highlights of the camera include 10 fps burst capture, 3D still and 3D Sweep Panorama shooting, Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode, and more!

16.2 Megapixel Back-Illuminated Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor
This camera features a 16.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera's Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor delivers extremely fast up to 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080i movie modes
Rugged and Stylish
This camera is just as much at home in the water as on a night on the town! The sleek and stylish camera fits the slimmest pocket or purse, yet is waterproof to a depth of 16 ft, shockproof from falls up to approximately 5 ft and dustproof thanks to its airtight construction. Seamlessly shifting from underwater marvels to a night on the town, the TX20 always makes it easy to get the best shot!
Full HD 1080/60i
Records crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD video. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HDTV. With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time
Capture the Decisive Moment with Up to 10 fps
Capture full 16.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects
Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode
Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode for blur-free movies, even while walking. Camera-shake compensation using Optical SteadyShot/Active Mode has been improved with the addition of new electronic image stabilization. Now it's easier than ever to obtain sharp, blur-free movies even when zooming in unsteady situations, such as shooting with one hand while walking
3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama Mode
Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities. Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way
Optical Zoom Plus Clear Image Zoom
Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos
Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR Mode
With Intelligent Sweep Panorama HR mode just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a high resolution panoramic image providing the ability to zoom in on small details. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion
Picture Effect
Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select models have up to nine effects
Photo Creativity
Photo Creativity allows you to fine-tune your exposure settings, such as brightness, color, and vividness, and quickly choose the right enhancement for your subject. Now you can view Picture Effects and Photo Creativity effects in real time on the camera's monitor or in the viewfinder before shooting
Background Defocus
DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now Sony's point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear
Superior Auto Mode
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using backlight correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology. Superior Auto intelligently detects 36 scenes for still images and movies, making it easy to get the best shot
Face Detection Technology
Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends
Smile Shutter Technology
Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select audit and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as Twilight and backlighting
Anti-Blink Function
It's frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot
Soft Skin Mode
Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot
Intelligent Scene Recognition Mode
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects 36 different types of scenes and selects the appropriate camera settings. In auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult light (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep
Natural Flash
Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash controls the white balance of both the background and main subjects
Motion Detection
Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection, adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces
Video Mode
AVCHD 60i: 24Mp FX / 17Mp FH (1,920 x 1,080/60i) / 9Mp HQ (1,440 x 1,080/60i) / MP4:12Mp (1,440 x 1,080/30fps) / 6Mp (1,280 x 720/30fps) / 3Mp VGA (640 x 480/30fps)

    The little camera that CAN!

    I've taken this surfing, (jammed in my shorts pocket, with one of those wrist floaties), snorkeling, partying, you name it, it's been there and it's still going strong.

    I've taken this surfing, (jammed in my shorts pocket, with one of those wrist floaties), snorkeling, partying, you name it, it's been there and it's still going strong.

    The auto focus works well, it takes just a little getting used to if this is your first Sony, but no big deal. The pictures are sharp and bright. The wide angle lens is w-i-d-e!

    It's a Sony - the video is best in its class in my opinion, I've shot some amazing video, who needs a a boxy Go pro bolted to your surfboard?

    This is a rugged little camera, just take care of it, and keep salt & sand out of the seals - that is no joke. I couldn't be happier.

    This camera is a great little device for summer fun. It takes great shots and videos. The problem I had with this camera was that its a waterproof camera that's not so waterproof! After a couple days of use the screen went green, and then it stopped working. That's why I suggest the Sony Marine Pack to cover it, but it doesn't make sense to shell out all this money. It's probably easier to buy a cheaper camera and put it in a waterproof case. The best part about this whole dilemma is B and H! They had a cooperative and friendly customer service that helped me get the camera replaced.

          Comments about Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 Digital Camera (Pink):

          Camera stopped working after about 6 pictures, half of them underwater. Sent it in for repair and Repair Center called me to say it was corroded inside and couldn't be fixed. They said I had obviously not closed compartment correctly. BUT I had read instructions several times, followed directions carefully. So I completely lost $[$]! I cannot believe how slimy Sony is - thought they were reputable. That's the last Sony product I'll ever buy.

            I wanted a point and shoot that I could take everywhere I don't take my DSLR. The Sony DSC-TX20 is perfect for that. Takes good quality pictures, have taken it to the beach a few times without any problem. It's great not to worry about sand of wet hands!
            Great product at an unbeatable price on B&H.
            I would recommend this product.

            I've purchased 4 of these and given a couple to friends. I started with the TX10. I bought it mainly because of it didn't have an extending lens and for it's small form factor. It's a great camera for it's size. Waterproofing is a plus. Downside is it's cheap plastic construction. Several parts around the screen and battery door are too thin and crack with normal use. If you're going to use this often I'd recommend extra batteries, it can easily go through 3 in a day.

              wanted a rugged waterproof camera to take around without worrying about breaking it. I don't use it under water, rather i needed the peace of mind that if a splash of water would not kill my camera. Pros: small easily stores in any pocket great value for the price decent images in print for a waterproof point and shoot, excellent when viewed on comp. touch screen is cool, no buttons to hang up on stuff when in your pocket.Cons: large hands cover lens, but not a big deal. Just move you finger slide cover seems kind of weak/flimsy port covers and seals seem weak. Can they Handel a splash yes, taking camera under water.........I wouldn't. I bought this camera after buying an Olympus TG-2 and returning it. At almost $400 images on olympus were often blurry and prints seemed washout and faded. Auto focus also was horrible. I haven't had any of these issues with the Sony DSC-TX20. I would have given this camera 5 stars but the lens sliding cover and seemingly weak port covers kept it from 5 stars.

                Bought it for a rafting trip (still to come) but have been impressed with the camera size (tiny) and its ruggedness (waterproof, dust proof, shock proof), the panorama feature, the video capabilities with still pictures, and the macro feature. The zoom is not too great but the 16 megapixels help. The screen is bright and clear but the touch can be slow. The screen buttons are small for my big fingers. I also find the picture review slow to activate. All criticizm aside this is a great little camera and I will learn to work with its features and limitations.

                      It's my third; handed down the TX-10 and lost a TX-20; so instead of upgrading got the last TX-20 at discounted price. This camera takes a beating; get protective screen for touch screen; it will scratch. Performs great - recommend this product. (I have Lumix too; this is slimmer in pocket). Only bad thing - the door might slide open in your pocket and then you have dead battery.

                      This product is very easy to use. It takes very sharp, and colorful pictures. I appreciate it rugged construction. As of yet I have not tried out the under water picture mode. I am looking forward to taking it on vacation to Hawaii.

                        Great camera. I wanted something with better qualities than a cell phone, this camera is it.
                        Takes great pictures and fits anywhere. Nice to have with me, when taking my higher quality camera and gear isn't practical.

                          I bought tow from this cam. One for me and one for my wife. The battery cover is cheap plastic, so it broke the first week. The other one i use it in the pool for 30 min then it stopped working. After two days in the sun it worked again but i will never use it under water anymore. Isn't it supposed to be waterproof? Other then that the cam is great. Small, works good and great pics.

                              I really like this camera. It takes great photos above the water. for underwater in the ocean you will need to focus in on your subject close. if you do not it will be very blue. nothing is wrong with the camera it will just take some getting use to. once you get the hang of it you will take some great pictures.

                                Only thing I did not like about this product is when taking a picture close up using the flash was that the picture was too bright. Would be nice to have a low light flash like Pentex had. had no problem using the product under water.The pictures turned out great.

                                I am a pro videographer and an aspiring photographer.

                                Pro or amateur, this toy makes a sweet pocket cam. I've used it as a secondary cam on professional shoots with no one the wiser. It is strong, waterproof and always in my pocket.

                                Obviously not my primary gun, but an exceptional back-up weapon.

                                I bought a DSC-TX10 last year because it was a cheap and waterproof. Some people say the cover might not be a good idea for beach use. This is not true at all. I travel a lot and when I want to hidemy camera i barry it in the sand and it never got one scratch. The only thing i would say is the touch screen is not that responsive when used in salt water. Not a big deal. The picture quality is outstanding. The panoramas are breathtaking. Overall it is my favorite compac camera so far.

                                I bought this camera just before a vacation, and took it horseback riding, snorkeling, and diving, and climbed a waterfall with it dangling off my wrist - it lived up to its promise and I got great pictures without putting a mark on it. I even risked taking it almost 30 feet underwater and it was fine. Wonderful camera. The battey life seemed short to me compared to other cameras, but I did have it on quiet a bit.

                                  I've taken this surfing, (jammed in my shorts pocket, with one of those wrist floaties), snorkeling, partying, you name it, it's been there and it's still going strong.

                                  The auto focus works well, it takes just a little getting used to if this is your first Sony, but no big deal. The pictures are sharp and bright. The wide angle lens is w-i-d-e!

                                  It's a Sony - the video is best in its class in my opinion, I've shot some amazing video, who needs a a boxy Go pro bolted to your surfboard?

                                  This is a rugged little camera, just take care of it, and keep salt & sand out of the seals - that is no joke. I couldn't be happier.
