A Lot of Camera, Both in Lens and Features


Sony DSC-HX200V The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V Digital Camera puts 18.2Mp, 1080/60p video capture, and the grip and styling of a DSLR in the palm of your hand. Designed for the more active shooter with a need for a better grip than that of a traditional point-and-shoot, the HX200V goes the distance. It works hard to provide you with great looking images and the extensively functionality achieve them.

18.2MP images just don't happen. An entire system has to come together to make it possible. The HX200V provides you with the tools needed, including Active 3-Way Optical Image Stabilization, a 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD TruBlack display, and a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 30x optical zoom lens. The lens also utilizes a 60x Clear Image Zoom.

A number of auto modes come into play when shooting the HX200V as well. From GPS and Compass functionality for geo-tagging to iSCN for automatically adjusted camera settings, Sony gave the HX200V a host of features that take the guesswork out of shooting. Other highlights include 10 fps burst shooting, Background Defocus, and Anti-blink. And of course, no matter what you're shooting, the camera accepts Sony's Memory Stick Duo media as well as SD/SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Feb 28, 2012
