The thin Cyber-shot DSC-TX200V comes with an 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS Sensor supported by a 26mm equivalent lens with 5x optical zoom and 10x virtual zoom via “Clear Image Zoom” technology.

The camera powered by a new BIONZ processor offers “Extra High Sensitivity” technology, which enhances the low-light shooting capabilities. It comes with a 3.3-inch Xtra Fine Tru-Black OLED wide touch-screen for viewing the multimedia data stored.

In addition, the snapper features a reinforced glass design that provides waterproof, dustproof and freeze-proof capabilities. It comes with the new Optical SteadyShot Active Mode for better image stabilization and 3D shooting modes that includes 3D Still Image, 3D Sweep Panorama and Sweep Multi Angle. It offers fast shooting speeds of 10 fps in the burst mode.

According to Sony, the Cyber-shot DSC-TX200V offers a super fast auto focus with a speed of approximately 0.13 seconds in daylight and 0.25 seconds in low-light conditions, which will vary based on shooting environment.

Other features include Full HD video recording capability, Photo Creativity interface and 9 “Picture Effect” options for creating photos and video with artistic effects. It can even capture still images of 13-megapixel equivalent while operating in the “Dual-Record” mode.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX200V offered in silver, red and violet hues will reach the stores in March for a price of around $500.
