Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V prices and specs
The Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V was released on Apr 24, 2013 and is on sale in USA for $499.99.
The Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V is a compact camera. Its main advantage is a very small size: the photographer can even put it in the pocket. The Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V has various automatic modes but you won't capture pictures of the same high quality in comparison to DSLR cameras.
The device can shoot pictures at 20 megapixels highest resolution. But for better photo quality the more important specification is a sensor size. This camera has a 1/2.3' (6.17 x 4.55 mm) sensor which means that the model will make pictures with a lower quality than cameras with larger sensors but instead it has another advantage - the Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V has portable size. But if you want to capture pictures of the professional quality pay attention to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II.
The Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V has max shutter speed of 1/4000 sec. It is an average shutter speed which will be enough for taking action pictures of a very good quality. The Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V captures high quality videos in Full HD resolution.
The lens is built into the device and you won't be able to change it. The lens provides great 30x optical zoom.
Also this camera has Wi-Fi which means that you can back up shots to a cloud service for example. The Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V even equiped with built-in GPS that will allow the photographer to record the exact co-ordinates where the pictures were captured. The Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V battery life will be enough to shoot about 400 pictures.
