My touchscreen on my new sony tx7 camera got scratched in my handbag, and the indent is interfering with anything i try to do...is there anything i can do? is it possible to replace the screen?


Hi,

I'm sorry to hear that the new DSC-TX7 Camera screen got scratched. You can get the screen replaced with the help of a service technician. Changing the LCD screen of the Camera is bit expensive. Contact the Service Technician to check if the screen requires a replacement or the entire LCD screen. I suggest you to use a screen protector (scratch guard) which is available with the SonyStore. This will help you in avaoiding scratches on the screen.

Sony HD videos Review:Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and HDR-CX110

Camcorders and cameras could be the electronic devices that you would never get rid of. There are special events and memorial moments like wedding, sports, birthday party, a long trip in South Africa and so on.

While choosing a camcorder with less than $500 bucks, what models would you consider? There are popular brands like Sony, Panasonic, JVC, and Canon.
Each manufacture promotes products with different attractive points. Here I would like to take a look at two new release Sony camcorders, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and Sony Handycam HDR-CX110, for entry-level consumers as examples.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 could be taken as one of the ultra-compact camcorders with the light weight, while Sony Handycam HDR-CX110 is general camcorder. Both AVCHD camcorders are wonderful with HD recording at 1920x1080, and there are bundled tools for some camcorders. However, the Mac version of PMB portable only seems to support Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 now, and there is no news for Sony HDR-CX110 yet. To make full use of AVCHD camcorder, you can use AVCHD MTS/M2TS converter for easy video editing and importing to software like Adobe Premiere, Avid.
Let's have a look at the comparison chart for the two models:

Even though Sony HDR-CX110 is more expensive and larger than a mini-camcorder, this model includes a 25x zoom lens for better video and picture. However, Cyber-shot also includes higher effective sensor resolution to 10.2 megapixels. The AVCHD videos with MPEG4 AVC/H.264 video codec provide high quality. Since the videos are recorded with interlace, while playing AVCHD MTS/M2TS videos on computer, you shall remember to deinteralce .mts for smooth playback.
If your eye is not that critical for images, the two models Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and HDR-CX110 could be your first camcorder for HD video. If you are looking for a higher quality camcorder, a higher cost will be ready for around a thousand bucks like Sony Handycam HDR-XR520V, HDR-CX550V, Canon Vixia HV30 or other AVCHD camcorders. Fortunately, the AVCHD camera MTS converter from Aunsoft Studio supports the AVCHD camcorders listed above, and you can play and edit HD videos on both Windows and Mac.

Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a new camera by Sony for consumers to shoot 1920x1080i and 1440x1080i AVCHD videos in .mts format.

Sony Cyber-shot TX7 Review, Convert Sony AVCHD Files If you need a small digital...


Sony Cyber-shot TX7 Review, Convert Sony AVCHD Files
If you need a small digital camera that can also shoot Full HD videos, this tiny Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a choice recommendable. It can capture vibrant colors in very high-quality 10MP stills, takes AVCHD video with stereo sound, have very good low-light photo quality for its class, but it does suffer from chromatic aberration, lens distortion and color bleeding. And its stylish design doesn’t guarantee very easy-to-use operation.

With its stylish design, Sony Cyber-shot TX7 retains the slide-down lens cover we saw on the Cyber-shot DSC-TX1 and it feels solidly built except for the battery compartment. The camera is designed for people who want a slim compact camera that can be carried effortlessly in a pocket or purse. It's capable of shooting AVCHD 1080p video; you can tell the camera what to do by tapping the icons on its touch screen. However they are quite small, requiring use of the supplied stylus, which could easily get lost. Its image quality won't really thrill you as Sony advertised, but it’s more than suitable for everyday shots that will used on social-networking sites or printed at a small size.
Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX7 is best for buy with 10 megapixels, 3.5-inch LCD, Memory Stick Pro Duo and many more things….

Vibration when using the Sony Cyber-Shot dsc-t20


Well, it seems that this is either a manufacturing defect or a defective/sub-standard part being used in the product. It would do Sony well to address this problem immediately so that all of us Sony lovers would continue to believe in their products. If this can be solved via a firmware upgrade then I hope Sony can guide us through it.
