Features

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 33 feet, shockproof from falls up to approximately 5 feet and dustproof thanks to its airtight construction. This durable camera can even withstand extreme weather conditions, as it is operable as low as 14 degree Fahrenheit. Seamlessly shifting from underwater marvels to a night on the town, the TX30 always makes it easy to get the best shot!

Magnifying Glass Plus
Magnifying Glass Plus and LED lights help capture intricate detail on subjects as close as 1/3”. The LED lights help illuminate the subject and remove any shadows created by the close proximity of the camera.

3.3" OLED touch screen with high quality viewing
Still photos and movies can be beautifully displayed on the 3.3" OLED with touch-screen (1229K dots). The organic light emitting display (OLED) shows the image through the lens with higher contrast and a wider viewing angle than conventional LCDs, for powerful, vivid playback. And, its high-speed response is faster than ordinary LCDs for smoother playback of dynamic action.

AVCHD 1080/60i movies
Record 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 HD TV.² With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.

Capture 18.2MP images even in low-light
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.

5x optical zoom plus 10x Clear Image Digital 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.

I had purchased the TX10 a few years ago, and it went through a lot, and it was time to retire it, so I purchased the TX30 about a month ago, and so far, I honestly enjoy the camera a lot. Pros: *Amazing macro on Magnifying Glass Plus *No 6 second delay for videos *Great picture effects Cons: *Weird water sound in the mic even before I took the camera under water *Very loud sound in the mic when you take this camera under water *the TX10 had great lowlight, and this camera is pretty bad * Flash is too powerful Overall, I would recommend this camera especially to people who take a lot of macro photography, and occasionally like to take a swim with it

I had an older version of this camera (tx10) that I loved and used well until it leaked after 19 months. I hadn't bought the extended warranty on that one, so I replaced it with the tx30 and bought the warranty. Unfortunately it leaked after only 2 months of light use. I'm now in the process of having sony repair/replace it but I really would just like my money back. This camera is not all the tx10 was. The flash on this one washes everyone out. Even people with darker complexions look ghostly white with the flash. I loved the 10shots/sec feature in the tx10. You got 10 clear crisp pictures. Unfortunately with the tx30 you just end up with 10 blurry pictures so it's useless. In any mode saving pictures takes several seconds so don't think you can capture two moments close together. I tried three cards (2 were new scandisk cards so this was the fault of the camera, not the memory.) All in all just very disappointed and then it seals the deal by leaking in 1 foot of water after only having it for 2 months. Very disappointed.

It will open up by itself in the water.

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot TX30 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

The open mechanizm makes playing with it on the beach difficult. Once the sand get into the mechanizm it is hard to get them all out. The waterproof seal is not well design it may open up in the water.

Good for about 20 months

By 

from San Francisco Bay Area, CA, USA

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot TX30 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

I used to love this camera. Took awesome pictures, was easy to use and the touchscreen was great. When we took it in the pool it worked great....surpassed my expectations. However - 20 months down the road I took it in the pool and apparently it leaked. All of a sudden the lens got cloudy, and you could see it in the lens. Eventually this cleared up, but every time I turn it on now, it resets like its turned on for the first time....asks me to enter the date/time etc. Also, the eye-fi no longer works, the auto shut off doesn't work, and the battery indicator no longer works. I tried to do a factory reset, but nothing seems to help. Worst of all, it seems to eat up batteries.....almost shorts them out.

Love this camera

By

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot TX30 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

I'm actually shocked to see all the negative comments about this camera. I bought mine in 2010 because I was moving to Hawaii for a year and the waterproof feature really appealed to me. I soon fell in love with this camera. Clear photos. Vibrant colors. On hikes and excursions my friends always dubbed me the photographer because everyone loved the quality of my photos. After reading these reviews I do have 1 thing in common with them however- the lever which closes the battery opening did break on mine (although after 4 years of use- and I really used this camera... dropped in mud, dropped out vehicles, dug in the sand... it was VERY used). I took a reunion trip back to the islands and although I tried my best not to get the camera in water (I knew the battery area would not seal properly) i failed- and this camera has quit on me. But- it did last me FIVE years. FIVE years of amazing photos. I don't regret this purchase one bit. I have a Canon DSLR which I love for professional looking photos- however for a kayak trip, hiking trip, where you want something light and to throw in your pocket- THIS IS YOUR CAMERA! I love it. I'm saving up to replace mine that just broke. Love love love.

Great Compact Camera

By

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot TX30 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

I bought this camera about a year ago because I was traveling to Jamaica and I wanted a waterproof camera. During my trip I went on 2 1+ hour dives of about 40 feet of saltwater and the camera work flawlessly (camera is rated at 30-35ft of freshwater). I made sure to get it is fresh water as soon as possible to get as much salt off. To this day still works great. The images are very crisp and vibrant and underwater photos came out great. One small issue occurred after the second dive the lens had some moisture, but after a day of drying it went away and haven't seen moisture in the lens since. Camera will easily out perform any smartphone camera and definitely worth the money in my opinion to have it is a dedicated point and shoot.

Disappointed

By 

from Knowlton, QC J0E 1V0, Canada

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot TX30 18.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

This is the most expensive camera I have ever had. Was so sold on the great salesmanship of the store. No worries for at least 4 years we were told. Guess what ? In a year and a half my camera has broken clips which hold the battery door closed . I am very cautious with my cameras. It was never dropped or misused. Though the service centre certainly put all the blame on us. The camera has been sent back on the extended guarantee - paid $ 70.00 - with little hope of a repair or replacement. The cost of the camera, new camera bag, 2 batteries, and several micro memory cards, we are very discouraged with both the product and the Future Shop extended warranty.
