The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX9 is one of three compact digital cameras (DSC-T99, DSC-TX9, DSC-WX5) released in summer 2010 as fresh additions to the Cyber-shot series. As an upgrade from the original DSC-T99, the Cyber-shot DSC-TX9 offers full HD 1080i video recording and a 3D Sweep Panorama that takes information from up to 100 images and combines them to create a stereoscopic pair of frames. It also adds along a Background Defocus that according to Engadget gives a DSLR-like effect of “sharp foreground images with a blurry background.” Like its predecessor, it too can be used underwater. Plus it hosts an HDMI output for transmitting to a compatible HDTV set.
