Sony Cyber-shot HX50 camera announced


I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that camera manufacturers do have secret meetings from time to time, discussing among them just when is the right time to roll out their new batch of cameras – all simultaneously, to confuse the masses, and most of the time, the hardware that is newly released too, would also be more or less the same that makes things all the more confounding. Well, Sony has come up with yet another digital camera, the Cyber-shot HX50, where it will boast of a powerful new compact that features an impressive 30x optical zoom range, sporting an advanced 20.4-megapixel “Exmor R” CMOS image sensor.

The Sony Cyber-shot HX50 measures approximately 4.4″ x 2.6″ x 1.2″1 in size, where it tips the scales in the region of 9.6 oz., clearly placing it as the forerunner to pick up the gong of being the world’s smallest and lightest camera that sports a 30x optical zoom capability. In order to complement the extensive zoom, the new Sony Cyber-shot HX50V camera will feature enhanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization in order to help you reduce camera shake as well as blur regardless of the range. At full zoom extension (30x), the HX50V camera will be able to deliver stabilization levels that is approximately twice as effective as the HX200V high-zoom model that was introduced last year.

As for the high-resolution 20.4 megapixel sensor that features in this new camera, it will be accompanied by a powerful BIONZ processor, which would enable this shooter to produce high-resolution, high-quality images regardless of the lighting conditions, be they broad daylight to dimly lit interiors as well as everything in between. Not only that, the new HX50V camera will also feature built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, making use of Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile application that works on both Android and iOS app platforms that allows it to wirelessly transfer photos and videos to a compatible smartphone or tablet.

The asking price for the new Sony Cyber-shot HX50V compact digital camera would be approximately $450 as it arrives later next month.
