Taylor Swift Engraved Sony Cyber-shot TX7 Summer Fun Giveaway!

Giveaway sponsored by Sony

Congratulations to our Sony Cyber-shot winner, Denise from Tarentum, PA!

Sony Cyber-shot TX7We are giving away one very special, limited-edition Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 engraved with Taylor Swift’s signature (MSRP $425).

Check out this video of Taylor demonstrating the Sony TX7's panoramic shot capabilities:

The Sony TX7 ultra-slim point-and-shoot camera is perfect for capturing summer vacation memories, and offers a range of great convenience features:

Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® Lens with 25mm equivalent wide 4x Optical Zoom
The high-performance Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® 4x optical zoom lens brings distant subjects closer for video recording as well as for outdoor, sports, and travel photos, and Close Focus shoots close-ups up to just under ½” from the subject. A 25mm equivalent wide-angle lens allows you to take wider shots of the scene or group in crowded spaces

Ultra-wide, 258-degree Panoramic Shots
iSweep Panorama Mode reaches beyond the traditional wide angle lenses to let you capture expansive, breathtaking shots of landscapes or skyscrapers. Just press the shutter and shoot the scene with a sweeping motion. The camera does the rest.

Backlighting Problems Solved
Shooting high-contrast scenes can often lead to washed out backgrounds and details lost in shadow. Backlight Correction HDR helps correct for this by taking two pictures at different settings and processing the best elements of both into a single image. It's perfect for candlelit shots or subjects that are partially in shadow.

Great Low-light Shots Without a Flash
Sometimes a flash can wash out the scene, making it hard to capture the mood of the moment. For low-light environments, the back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor delivers stunning performance and increases sensitivity by 2x to reduce noise. Shots around the campfire never looked better.

Sony Cybershot TX7 touchscreenTouch 'n' View
No more fussing with tiny buttons. Just tap the large, 3.5" (diag.) touch screen display (230K pixels) to review your shots in vivid color. Thanks to a layer of hardened glass, the display of the DSC-TX7 is twice as durable as that on the DSC-T90.

Takes 10 Photos in 1 Second
Capture decisive moments—like the ball hitting the bat—with the ability to shoot 10 images in one second at full 10.2 megapixel resolution. And by employing a mechanical shutter, distortion is reduced when continuously shooting moving subjects. This feature is ideal for capturing a unique sequence of images.

Burn HD Movies to DVD
Shoot beautiful HD movies and then burn them to DVD. By recording in the AVCHD format, you can transfer full 1080i clarity and smooth motion video to disc and play it on a Blu-ray Disc™ player or a PS3™ game system. Create an entire library of your memories in high definition.

My 10-year old camera just took its final shot, so now, I can only rely on audio.  This is exactly what I need.

My 10 yr old daughter Haley adores Taylor Swift and only has a hand me down camera. She would be so thrilled to win this gift. She is our youngest, and since there is 12 years between her and our 3rd, is more of an only child.

It would be such an honor to win this camera with taylor’s autpgraph. I am in desperate need of a new camera. I have a hp digital camera and it recently broke yesterday and i need a new camera really bad. My family is sorta on a budget and we can’t afford a new camera right now and i love taking pictures of everything. My dad is out of work and well my chances of a new camera are gone. We have concerts coming up and now i can’t take any pictures. It would be the most amazing gift ever if i won this camera. I am a huge Taylor Swift fan. She is so amazing and to have a camera autographed by her well it would be a dream come true. So if i won it would be the best day of my life.

I want to win this

From Jennifer on June 17, 2010 :: 9:05 am

I want to win this camera, because let me just say, my current camera takes some of the worst pictures ever. The last pictures I took were, ironically, at a Taylor Swift concert! Although I was front row, they didn’t come out too great. And that camera.. it wasn’t cheap! I’ve heard a lot of reviews that said this camera took great pictures. I’d love to have one. smile
I’m also a HUGE taylor swift fan, and I’d love this camera. Taylor’s music and her persona inspire me so much. I’d love to have this.

I would love to have this so I could experiment with the panoramic shots, and some of the other described features. I think it would come in handy for when I post photos on my blog of my various crafts, along with the photo’s I’d love to be able to take of some birds and other animals we have in the area—my current camera is not able to take great shots of those things but this Sony Cyber-shot seems like it’d be able to do the job, and do it very well.

I have had my camera for several years, and the pictures are starting to become fuzzy, especially at from my Taylor Swift concerts! I would love to have a new one for everyday use and the next Taylor concert.  Having Taylor’s engravement would make it even more special, you have no idea! PS. Taylor and I have the same birthday! haha

I've gotten sick of using

From Gaurav Rajasekar on June 17, 2010 :: 11:20 am

I’ve gotten sick of using an ancient camera phone to satisfy my photography needs and I’m seriously looking for a camera with great features that prides itself on its ease of use. HD recording in AVCHD is something that will go down well with my PS3 - I’ve always hoped that I can transfer vacation videos straight to the PS3 without converting them before viewing. 

Besides, the optical zoom is decent and I just love the fact that it can take panoramic shots without having to stitch together pictures manually in image editing software. And a backlit CMOS sensor is a dream feature to have in a camera, I hate it when the flash makes pictures look unnatural.

Oh yeah, and both me and my lady are big fans of Taylor swift, especially her songs “Love Story” and “White Horse”, so we’d be very happy to have a special edition with her name on it.

Having four boys makes for

From Susan F. on June 17, 2010 :: 11:40 am

Having four boys makes for a WONDERFUL life and yet only having cell phone cameras makes it difficult.  Two years ago, our digital camera, one of the original Sony CyberShots, ended its’ well used life, and one year ago a camera our son bought for us as a replacement was stolen before he could give it to us.  It would be terrific to have the capabilities of the Cyber-shot TX7 to capture some planned and spontaneous moments.
    Taylor Swift has been an inspiration in her young life and is a role model for young people. Hopefully, her amazing life will not alter her grounded attitude and values she is currently holding.  How great to have a testament to this talented lady by winning the camera!!

I’m a happy Tech subscriber….great emails!
I’d love to have a digital camera to record our 2 year old grandchild’s first summer vacation at our 22,000 acre working ranch deep in the Florida Everglades. Catching his reaction to close-up contact with horses, cows,big machines like dozers and cranes and real cowboys is going to be priceless. And sighting animals and birds in their natural habitat should make him really happy, too. I’d like to catch every image of that learning process. Great giveaway. Thanks!
