Sony DSC-HX100V Features

  • Carl Zeiss Vario-SonarT Lens with 27mm equivalent wide angle lens and 30x Optical Zoom: The Lens with 30x 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 within a 1/2" of the subject
  • Backlight Correction HDR: Don't miss a single detail in high contrast shots. The built in backlight correction analyzes the image and automatically adjusts accordingly to give you a perfectly lit shot
  • High resolution iSweep Panorama mode: With high resolution iSweep Panorama mode just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a high resolution panoramic image providing the ability to zoom in on small details
  • Digital Zoom: Capturing the right shot at the right moment has never been so easy. Digital zoom brings the action up close to get that perfect shot, every time
  • Natural Flash: Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images
  • Face Detection technology: Sony's Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends
  • Sweep Multi Angle mode: In Sweep Multi Angle mode, the camera takes 15 images at different angles as it sweeps across the scene. By tilting the camera during playback, the camera's Gyro Sensor detects motion and displays the image in a 3D-like view on the camera's LCD
  • Includes Sony PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Software ver. 5.5: Sony Picture Motion Browser software offers a simple, intuitive way to transfer, sort and view your video and still images on your compatible PC
  • 3.0" XtraFine LCD: 3.0" XtraFine LCD with TruBlack technology gives you deeper blacks and more color in your display, all while being thinner than most LCDs
  • Hi-speed Linear Focus: Life moves fast, your camera's focus needs to move just as fast. The Hi-speed linear focus achieves dramatically clearer images with an auto focus that moves just as fast as your life
  • Background Defocus: DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization: Optical SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality
  • HDMI output: The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams
  • Motion Detection: Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces
  • Includes Sony PMB Portable software: With the pre-installed Picture Motion Browser (PMB) Portable software the DSC-HX100V makes it easy to pre-select videos and images in the camera and conveniently upload them from the camera to a compatible PC and popular Internet sharing sites
  • Full HD 1080/60p: Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60p in 1080 Full HD. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your Blu-ray Disc players, Sony PlayStation3 systems and compatible PCs and HDTVs

  • Superior Auto mode: Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots
  • Soft Skin mode: Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot
  • Smile Shutter technology: Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest
  • Anti-blink Function: It's frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking
  • TransferJet technology: TransferJet technology, developed by Sony and advanced and promoted by a consortium of 18 other companies, allows you to transfer up to ten files between two TransferJet enabled devices just by touching their TransferJet logos together
