About Sony DSCHX1B

The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX1 High Zoom Digital Camera has ultra-fast, 10-shots-per-second speed. Remarkable Exmor CMOS technology even makes it easy to capture photos in low light while maintaining smooth color gradation and crisp detail. Especially useful for beautiful landscape shots or shooting skyscrapers, the Sweep Panorama mode takes seamless 224-degree shots with breathtaking 9.1 megapixel results-just press the shutter and sweep in a horizontal or vertical direction.

And don't miss the 20x optical zoom or the Intelligent Auto mode that eliminates the guesswork by automatically adjusting camera settings for you. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization reduces blur for sharp, lifelike images. The HX1 features a 9.1 megapixel Exmor CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera's precision G-Lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced noise. With 9.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to A3+ (13x19") size, or crop your images and still come away with high resolution shots.

Designed and manufactured to the highest standards of optical performance, the Sony G-Lens is optimized to perfectly complement the advanced image sensors and image processing technology in Sony's cameras. G lenses are used in top of the line digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras and advanced pro-summer HD Camcorders. Capture the action up close with the 20x optical zoom and with the 28mm wide angle lens the HX1 even allows you to capture more of the scenes in landscape or group portraits. The HX1's G Lens has a six blade aperture capable of producing a beautiful bokeh (beautifully defocused backgrounds with a soft natural feel). The aspherical lens elements made from ED (extra-low dispersion) minimize chromatic aberration common to high-magnification lenses.
