Sony DSC-HX50V digital camera : From round-the-world expeditions to family walks on a Sunday afternoon, the new CyberShot DSC-HX50 camera from Sony gives every scene the colour, detail and clarity it deserves - even at high zoom. While it’s tempting to rely on your smartphone, the Sony DSC-HX50 gives photographers plenty of great reasons to invest in a dedicated pocket camera. Boasting a 20.4 megapixel sensor and built-in image stabilisation, the Sony DSC-HX50 delivers beautifully vibrant photos and Full HD videos, even when you’re far from your subject. What’s more it’s the world’s smallest, lightest digital still camera that packs a powerful 30x optical zoom range.|

The wide-ranging optical zoom of the Sony HX50V gives users more flexibility to pick their shooting position, while Optical SteadyShot camera-shake compensation gives peace of mind that image quality won’t be compromised. Even at 30x zoom, the CyberShot DSC-HX50 now offers image stabilisation that’s twice as effective as the DSC-HX200V.

For more advanced photographers who like to fine-tune the details of a shot, there’s a dial to adjust exposure compensation plus a mode dial for other manual shooting settings such as P/A/S/M modes. There’s also a Multi Interface Shoe for attaching a compatible electronic viewfinder, flash, or microphone for better video sound quality - the perfect match with the high quality video shooting of Full HD (50p) recording capability.
