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 Fahrenheit4. Seamlessly shifting from underwater marvels to a night on the town, the TX30 always makes it easy to get the best shot!

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.
Capture 18.2MP images even in low-light

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.

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.

AVCHD 1080/60i movies

AVCHD 1080/60i movies

Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD video.¹ 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.

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.
