About Sony DSC-HX10V

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V Digital Camera (red) is an 18.2MP point-and-shoot with a number of things going for it, not the least of which is GPS and Compass functionality. That means your images will be tagged with the exact location they were shot - and contain information on the exact direction in which they were shot! Whether you plan to use this data for geo-tagging, storage, albums, or for future re-shoots, it makes your digital life a whole lot easier, not to mention, interesting.

True to its genre, the HX10V has a number of auto modes packed in for seamless shooting, without the guesswork. The High Speed AF mode, for instance, improves on focus speed over past models, even in low-light. This makes for effortless image capture day or night. Sixteen times optical zoom - and 32x Clear Image Zoom - come in handy for far-off subjects, while optical image stabilization ensures blur-free photos, even when shooting handheld. Of course, modes like 3D Still Image and Background Defocus will come in handy too, providing you with functionality not normally seen on a point-and-shoot.

In addition to capturing high-res still, the HX10V also captures 1080/60i video. Helping the camera to preserve memories of both varieties, you'll find features like a built-in flash, a 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD and a Sony G lens. And no matter which way you choose to shoot, the camera records to Memory Stick Duo cards, as well as SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards.

Sony DSC-HX10V Features

  • 18.2 MP Exmor R CMOS sensor: The 18.2 MP Exmor R CMOS sensor captures ultra-high definition images that take full advantage of the camera's sharp Sony G lens
  • Full HD 1080/60i: Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60i in 1080 AVCHD video. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV
  • 3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama mode: Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities. Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way
  • Background Defocus: DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Sony's point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit
  • 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. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity
  • 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
  • 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
  • High speed AF: To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor R CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput to deliver high-quality image signals to the camera's BIONZ processor. The result is fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds, even in low light
  • Capture the decisive moment with up to 10 fps: Capture full 18.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal
  • Picture Effect: Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select camera models have up to nine different effects
  • Superior Auto mode: The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using Backlight Correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology
  • GPS and Compass: GPS and compass record location data and camera direction as you shoot movies and photos. GPS Log lets users track a photographic journey and later view the path and images on a map
  • Intelligent Scene Recognition Mode: Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects 33 different types of scenes and selects the appropriate camera settings. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced
  • 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
  • Optical zoom plus Clear image zoom: With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images
  • Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode: Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode for blur-free movies even while walking. Camera-shake compensation using Optical SteadyShot/Active Mode has been improved with the addition of new electronic image stabilization
  • Photo Creativity: Photo Creativity allows you to fine-tune your exposure settings, such as brightness, color and vividness and quickly choose the right enhancement for your subject
  • Face Detection technology: Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends
  • Anti-blink Function: It's frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting
  • Natural Flash: Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash controls the white balance of both the background and main subjects
