Sony is making some amazing cameras these days. The Sony TX9 packs 12 megapixel still photos, 1080i HD video, 3D stills and sweep panoramas into one easy-to-use, tiny (smaller than a deck of cards) camera. The best camera in the world is the one you have with you, and this gives you a lot of features and simplicity all in one. The Zeiss lens, legendary in the photography world, zooms 4x and is incredibly sharp, making the most of the sensor’s resolution.

The sweep panorama is really cool. You just set the camera in that mode, use your hands to sweep the camera from left to right across the scene, and the camera assembles your choice of a 2D or 3D panorama. The intelligent automatic mode takes all the guesswork out of it, comparing your scene to its own database and choosing the ideal settings for the camera. For 3D photos, you select it in the menu, shoot your image(s) and the screen plays them back on the back, using the camera’s built-in gyros it gives an amazing 3D effect.

The front closes easily to protect the lens, and the back is clean and easy to use. The entire back of the camera is a a touch screen LCD, very easy to see and navigate. You can even select where the camera focuses by touching where you want it on the back.
