Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V - 10.2 MP,10X optical zoom

07 January 2010 0

The new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V is a 10.2  megapixel camera with 10X optical zoom .

The key features of the new Sony Cyber-shot HX5V Digital camera are:

  • 10.2 Megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, which provides better low light shooting than conventional sensors
  • F3.5-5.5, 10X optical zoom Sony "G" lens, equivalent to 25 - 250 mm
  • Optical image stabilization
  • 3-inch LCD display with 230,400 pixels
  • Built-in GPS with compass function not only records the location of a photo -- it even knows which direction the camera was pointing (I don't know how useful this is, but there you go)
  • Intelligent Auto mode (with auto scene selection) plus limited manual controls
  • Enhanced Intelligent Sweep Panorama feature combines up to 100 exposures into a single image; each "slice" can vary in size, which prevents awkward seams, or having a moving subject appear cut off
  • High Dynamic Range mode combines two exposures (one dark, one bright) into a single photo with improved dynamic range -- no tripod necessary
  • Continuous shooting at speeds up to 10 frames/second
  • Face, smile, and blink detection
  • Records Full HD video using the AVCHD codec; that's 1920 x 1080 at 60 interlaced frames/second, with stereo sound
  • Lower resolutions also available: 1440 x 1080, 1280 x 720, and 640 x 480; all use MPEG-4 codec and are 30p
  • Supports new TransferJet wireless protocol, which allows you to send photos to a compatible device (another camera, laptop, etc) by putting the two devices right next to each other; requires a special 8GB Memory Stick Duo card ($100); a TransferJet receiver, which can be connected to computers, TVs, and other devices, will cost $150
  • 45MB onboard memory + combo Memory Stick Duo and SD/SDHC slot
  • HDMI output
  • Uses NP-BG1 lithium-ion battery; 310 shots per charge

Sony HX5V Price in India : The new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V Digital camera price will be around Rs.21,000 in India. (US$350 in US)
