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.

I soooo need a new

From trish on July 03, 2010 :: 1:42 pm

I soooo need a new camera.  I bought a Kodak w/a 10x optical in Feb. 2010, have used it about 10 times & THE LENSE WILL NOT RETRACT & it WILL NOT TURN ON.

I bought a Sony Mavica, BACK IN THE DAY when it was all of a 1.0 M.P., back when digital cameras WERE NEW & SOOOO EXPENSIVE.  I know longer use it & that was $900!!!!  But the 1.0 MP is just not any good for today but!  IT STILL WORKS.  After that a bought a Sony 3.2 MP digital camera at $329, now obsolete but works.  I have a SONY digital camera, bought in 1999 I think it was & although it’s that old, IT WORKS & that was about $800 at the time. 

I know, I SHOULD OWN SONY STOCK!!!!! 
 
SONY ROCKS when it comes to digital camera.

I WOULD LOVE TO WIN THIS CAMERA - great touch screen technology & the 4x optical & the SONY LENSE, how can you go wrong????

I just bought my daughter

From Tonya Dean on July 03, 2010 :: 7:03 pm

I just bought my daughter a camera at big lots for her birthday and it’s a piece of junk. The batteries keep dying and the software for it won’t work and the worst part is that they won’t take it back because we don’t have all of the original packaging. So I really appreciate the chance to win a new one. Thanks

From Tanya Clapshaw on July 04, 2010 :: 11:22 am

My oldest daughter is 9, and is a huge fan of Taylor Swift!  Victoria’s just at the age when she’s really expanding her creativity, and is becoming interested in photography.  I am not excited about lending her our older camera—both because it isn’t that great, and because it is the only one we have!

This would be an amazing gift for her birthday, coming up in two months.  Thanks for the opportunity smile

And yes, we’re signed up for the newsletter, too

I love to photograph nature,

From Sarah on July 04, 2010 :: 12:26 pm

I love to photograph nature, animals, and candids of people.  I have nothing other than my camera phone which just isn’t good at all (better than nothing though), and would just love something help me express myself and the world, and this camera could for sure do that, especially with the features on this particular camera. 

Also, I love going to pro sporting events and being able to record some of what I see there would be a really nice additional bonus to owning this camera!
