The Sony DSC-TX66 Digital Camera is an 18.2Mp point-and-shoot with a number of things going for it, including superb high definition capture. Capable of capturing 1080/60i movies with dual record of stills and movies, the TX66 is an all-in-one memory making machine. Quality features like a large 3.3" OLED touchscreen, 5x optical and 10x clear image zoom, and a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens all work hard to provide you with high-quality memories that will last a lifetime.



In addition, the TX66 is a super-slim camera. It's only as thick as a single AA battery, making the TX66 an ideal companion at all times. Other features include 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama mode, Picture Effect, and a feature called Background Defocus for images where the subjects pops out of the scene. Brightness, color, and vividness can all be adjusted with the Photo Creativity mode, and of course face detection and Smile Shutter technologies ensure that everyone looks their best in every shot.



iSCN automatically adjusts the camera's settings by detecting 36 different scene conditions and deciding what is best for that individual shot. Natural Flash, meanwhile, corrects color balance for lifelike shots. Anti-blink, Face Priority, Red-eye Reduction, Motion Detection and more save your memories from what used to be the hazards incumbent in shooting snapshots.

18.2Mp Exmor R CMOS Sensor
The 18.2Mp Exmor R CMOS sensor captures ultra-high definition images that take full advantage of the camera's sharp 4.7-23.5mm (26-130mm (4:3) 35mm equivalent) Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens. The sensor enables advanced processing that reduces noise levels resulting in stunning low-light images with incredible details
Slim and Stylish Design
At just over 1/2" thin and only 3.3 oz, this stylish camera is the perfect size to take with you almost anywhere. Slip it into a pocket, purse, or backpack and be ready to shoot memorable moments
High Speed AF
To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor R CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput to deliver high-quality images signals to the camera's BIONZ processor, which provides intelligent response data to a new high speed actuator motor in the lens. The result is fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds even in low-light
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
Optical Zoom Plus Clear Image Zoom
Most digital zooms use electric 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
Capture the Decisive Moment with Up to 10 fps
Capture full 18.2 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 improved 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
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, indentifies 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)
