Product Details

Sony CyberShot 18.2 Megapixel Silver Digital Camera, Model DSCTX200V

Weather-resistance, high performance and style combine in the Sony® DSC-TX200V. Its thin glass-panel design protects the stabilized 5X Optical/10X Clear Image zoom and 3.3” OLED touch screen, and its 18.2 MP sensor captures stunning stills and Full HD 1080/60p video.


  • 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 Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens. The sensor enables advanced processing that reduces noise levels, resulting in stunning low light images with incredible details
  • Waterproof and dustproof
    The sleek and stylish camera fits the slimmest pocket or purse. Thanks to its airtight construction, it is dustproof as well as waterproof to a depth of 16 feet
  • Slim glass design plus a 3.3" OLED touch screen
    This camera features a sleek, polished glass camera front without protruding lenses or control buttons, making it one of the thinnest cameras in its class, and adding to its water- and dust-proof design. The 5X optical zoom extends internally, and scenes can be composed or played back on the camera’s bright and colorful 3.3" OLED touch screen
  • High speed AF
    To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor R CMOS sensor uses its rapid 240fps throughput to deliver high-quality image signals to the camera’s BIONZ® processor. The result is fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds, even in low light
  • Full HD 1080/60p
    Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60p in 1080.1 This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV.2 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 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
  • Capture the decisive moment with up to 10fps
    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.4 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
  • 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 camera models have up to nine different 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 our 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 33 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 select Smile Shutter™ and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult 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
  • GPS and Compass
    GPS and compass record location data and camera direction as you shoot movies and photos. GPS Log lets users track a photographic journey and later view the path and images on a map. Map View in “PlayMemories Home” software, allows users to view images on a map showing where they were taken. The logged path and images can also be displayed on Google Earth
  • 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. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced. 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 lighting (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

A nice and expensive piece of junk


from Monterrey, Mexico

Comments about Sony CyberShot 18.2 Megapixel Silver Digital Camera:

I bought this camera as a gift for my wife and it turned to be a huge fiasco. 70% of the pictures we took in the 3 days we had this camera came up with a blue flare in the upper right corner. When the flash was used we had very white faces and very dark backgrounds. We thought that this would be a nice upgrade to our previous TX20 but we were wrong. Don't waste your precious moments and money buying this camera.

from Wylie, TX

Comments about Sony CyberShot 18.2 Megapixel Silver Digital Camera:

I have been a Sony digital camera owner since they made those Digital Mavica floppy-disk cameras. I update to a new model just about every other year. This is BY FAR my favorite model Sony has made so far--with a couple caveats, and I'll explain. The flat front, wipable with a soft cloth included with the camera, is AWESOME. No more digging around the lens (gently of course) with a q-tip to clean it. This is HUGE in the soccer mom world--makes the camera much, much easier to take care of. There's no more slide up/down cover on the front. I'm very happy about this. With one hand, it was often a hassle to open; and even though I never had one break, the moving parts element of it always made me afraid that front cover would break. No longer a problem with this new camera. Thank you, Sony! And here's a silly one but something I noticed--when I bought last year's model camera, I tried to rip off the tag and BROKE OFF THE CAMERA STRAP HOLDER loop. Unbelieveable! They were great about replacing it; but really? Fix your design! So they did! This year the label came *looped* through that hole, and the tag was very easy to get off. Also, getting the wrist-strap through that hole was very very easy--which is almost always a hassle--thank you Sony for fixing that too. Another reviewer was complaining about file formats, and I understand your sentiment. However, I don't think this camera line is designed for that. It's designed for people who want point-and-shoot and to do minor basic editing. The next case-in-point--the awesome new in-camera pre-photo editing options. With the "magic camera" icon, you can now brighten a photo before you take it, "warm" or "cool" it, and a host of other things. This makes me very, very happy. 1080p is, as always, stunning; and I love Sony's anti-shake for videos. It takes away what I call the "Blair Witch Effect" and makes your videos really smooth--even while walking. Also has AVCHD video version, which is good for hooking up to your HDTV and watching--but for me, mp4 is better, because I make cute little mommy set-to-music videos with iMovie. Speaking of iMovie, that's one beef I have here: where's the Mac desktop software? Sony is really toting the cool new desktop software... but I can't use it, because I'm on a Mac. Boo! Make sure you realize before you buy this camera that it's now MicroSD (or also takes Sony's version of MicroSD card). Which means... EyeFi no longer works. I bet this was a strategic move by Sony... heh and I give them kudos for that. But really, I only used the EyeFi for GPS tagging my photos, and this camera now does that itself! And let me tell you--the GPS tagging works down to one foot by one foot, I swear--I took the camera for a walk around a park, snapping a photo every ten steps, and on the computer, the camera knew exactly... where... I... was. The only things I would complain about have to do with the inside of the camera. There's a hookup for sync/charging, and (another one that I think is for hooking up to the TV?) but they look EXTREMELY similar, and I can just see an old person with poor eyesight trying to jam the cable into the wrong one and breaking the camera. Either (a. make a universal port that will work both ways, or (b. move one of them somewhere else. Also, while it's super cool that I have a 32GB microSD card the size of my thumbnail that will hold over five thousand photos, I can see where it would be really hard to pop in and out if you didn't have fingernails like I do. Also, the microSD and Sony's version of the card go in the same slot, just upside down--so I was one of the people who put the card in upside down the first time (and yes, it will fit that way without jamming) and thought the microSD card wasn't working... until I flipped it over, and tada. Bravo, Sony. I really love this camera. My favorite one you've made in the past twelve years.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX7V JPEG only ?


from New Jersey , USA

Comments about Sony CyberShot 18.2 Megapixel Silver Digital Camera:

Want to purchase a high quality compact camera for my wife. Have waited a long time for a really good camera. This is IT ! Good optics. All features needed . 18 meg suitable size for good prints and post processing if needed. Good for TV viewing as well. NO File Format Options glaring omission at this level. 18 meg separates Sony from the field of 16 meg but not a significant difference and for how long. Can purchase high quality compact camera with good features and quality make /16 meg for about $ 250.00. You might have worked out of the box by offering additional file formats . At a minimum Tiff but Raw would be much better. By doing this you would have differentiated yourself from the rest of the field and claimed the top spot for a high quality compact camera . Your market research may indicate this is not an important feature. I beg to differ. Many people have learned how to manage their digital photograph and post processing has become COMMON . I really think you missed the boat on this. My conclusion : Great camera . Too much money without additional file format options . Maybe next year ? Paul D. Vesely
