I don’t quite get the fascination with 3D, I think it’s just the glasses that I don’t like though. These new cameras from Sony can do 3D that you can view on 3D capable equipment, seems like a lot to go through and buy, but I guess people out there like it.. Three models will be available in September from $250 to $400 in price…
Both models offer a 3D Sweep Panorama(TM) feature, which lets you take panoramic pictures in one press-and-sweep motion. The high-speed burst of frames is stitched together using innovative processing techniques to automatically create detail-packed 3D panoramas. These images can be enjoyed in 2D or stunning 3D on compatible 3D televisions (3D-compatible HDMI cables and 3D glasses are also required and are sold separately.)
The DSC-TX9, which has a 3.5-inch 921k resolution LCD touchscreen, and the DSC-WX5, which has a 2.8-inch LCD screen, also let you view images in a whole new way. Unlike 3D Sweep Panorama mode, which lets you view your 3D images on compatible 3D television systems, Sweep Multi Angle(TM) lets you view images moving in simulated 3D right on the cameras’ LCD screen by tilting the camera back and forth. This new shooting feature captures 15 images at different angles and then compiles them into one photo, creating a 3D-like effect on the display.
In addition to Sweep Multi Angle, the 12.2 megapixel TX9 and WX5 models offer new features including Background Defocus, which simulates depth of field control and Superior Auto mode, which provides low image-noise levels previously only available from DSLR cameras.
The cameras and a range of accessories will be available in September online at Sonystyle.com, at Sony Style® retail stores (www.Sonystyle.com/retail), at military base exchanges and at authorized dealers nationwide.
-- The TX9 will be available for about $400 in (dark gray and red) -- The T99 will be available for about $250 in (silver, black, pink, green and violet) -- The WX5 will be available for about $300 in (silver and black)
