Sony’s improved Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. 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.
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
Pet-mode minimizes blur when shooting moving pets utilizing Motion Detection technology and automatically turns off the flash to reduce glowing pet eyes. AF illumination is also disabled so you can take more natural expressions avoiding startling your pets.
Dynamic Range Optimizer Standard and Plus
Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO) Standard and Plus uses a sophisticated algorithm to help recover shadows and highlights. The result is more natural images with clearer details that more closely match what your naked eye sees. DRO is particularly effective when shooting backlit portraits or any scene with a dramatic contrast between background and foreground lighting. DRO Plus allows for even greater optimization by analyzing each region of an image and performing additional image processing.
Easy Shooting Mode
With Easy Shooting Mode, even beginners can take great photos. In Easy Shooting Mode, easy-to-understand basic instructions are displayed on the LCD screen and the camera switches to all automatic settings, removing several function choices and allowing you to focus on just your subject.

We have had many Sony cyber shot cameras over the past 3 years. Each one is better then the last. the TX-1 has really cool functions. The first being the panorama mode, it pieces many photos together to create one long seamless photo. Great for traveling and sight seeing. It shoots 720p video, pretty neat. It has an anti blur mode meaning that it shoots 5 shots and blends them into one to create one great picture. It has a 10 shot feature, by pressing the button down it will shoot 10 shots in a row, of any quality you choose, the only bad part is you have to wait for the camera to save the photos, still a very neat and useful feature.However, the resolution is not as great as I’d like it to be. With 10.2 mega-pixel, you’d think it would do wonders. It does not, i was disappointed. When you zoom in on a photo, you can see the lack of clarity and pixelization. The photos do look great in a non zoom manner. This is the only negative thing I can find. Some are complaining about lack of internal memory, seriously? I’d rather purchase the memory and leave space for new camera technology. A memory card is essential.So for the price and innovative technology, I really like this camera. So many features and specialties.

I had a bought a Sony DSC-T3 a few years ago, wanting it so bad I imported one from Japan! If its zoom hadn’t given out after many active years, I’d still shoot with it. The TX1 seemed to be the latest and greatest successor in Sony’s ultracompact line, and it hasn’t disappointed.I thought I’d hate the touchscreen, but it’s actually very convenient, and responds smoothly. About all it can’t do is pinch-zoom, and I’m guessing that’s more of a patent issue than anything else. Controls are laid out sensibly, and it’s easy to switch from automated settings to finer image control.One of the coolest new features is Panorama mode, which makes ultra-wide photos quickly and easily. It absolutely works as advertised – it’s also fun to mess with, such as when I took a panorama of my friend as he followed the camera, making a crazy hall-of-mirrors effect.The much-touted low-light settings are great, as well, addressing an issue pretty much all compact s have. It can do a shockingly good job finding light and eliminating blur in dark situations, letting you avoid using the tiny, intrusive flash.The 720p video is pretty nice, largely free of the dreaded wobbly effect many still s produce. As a bonus, you can zoom while recording video.There’s drawbacks, of course – Sony’s continued, stubborn insistence on Memory Stick is irksome, but honestly, I don’t move memory cards around much. The zoom’s a bit unresponsive, not allowing very fine adjustment. You’re going to have to wipe off the touchscreen a lot. Also, I find it easy to hit the power button when the ‘s in a crowded pocket. Shots are going to be grainier than when you shoot with your D300 – such is life.No ‘s perfect, but when you hold this thing, you can’t help but think of what a miracle it would look like to someone from even ten years ago. I’m happy I waited for the TX1 to come out, and it’s going to be in my pocket for years to come, ready for when life happens.
