Giveaway sponsored by Sony
Congratulations to our Sony Cyber-shot winner, Denise from Tarentum, PA!
We 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.
Touch '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.
