Sony Cybershot WX5 and TX9 cameras pack 3D panorama & Full HD

Posted July 9, 2010 in , , , , , ,

Sony has outed its latest Cybershot digital cameras, the 12.2-megapixel 3D-capable DSC-WX5 and DSC-TX9, and the 14.1-megapixel DSC-T99.  Both the WX5 and the TX9 support Full HD 1080i video recording, along with 2D/3D sweep panorama like the NEX-5, with the TX9 also throwing in an underwater-panorama mode when paired with a marine housing.

The WX5 has a 5x optical zoom while the TX9 has a 4x optical zoom; there’s also a new “Background Defocus” mode which automatically shoots two images and then combines them to keep the foreground subject crisp and the background suitably blurry.  A “New Soft Skin” mode, meanwhile, does a little Photoshop-style editing in-camera, automatically getting rid of lines and wrinkles.  The WX5 has a 2.8-inch preview display while the TX9 scales that up to 3.5-inches.

As for the DSX-T99, that has a 4x optical zoom, sweep panorama (with underwater mode, but no 3D support) and 720p HD video recording, together with a 3-inch preview display.  All three models will go on sale this summer, pricing TBA.
