Sony Cyber-Shot HX50V Announced; Comes With 20.4 MP Camera, 30x Optical Zoom

Sony recently announced the new Cyber-shot HX50V camera in the US. It features an impressive 30x optical zoom range and advanced 20.4 megapixel Exmor R CMOS image sensor. This device allows you to capture more than 400 photos on a single charge, thanks to the powerful X-type lithium ion battery. The Sony Cyber-shot HX50V is touted to be the world’s smallest and lightest camera with 30x optical zoom capability.

Patrick Huang, director of the Cyber-shot digital camera at Sony Electronics, said,
“Despite the emergence of smart phone cameras in today’s market, the HX50V model gives photographers plenty of reason to invest in a dedicated pocket camera. Its wide-ranging 30x optical zoom gives users more freedom to pick their shooting subject and position, and its extensive, advanced imaging capabilities give shooters the peace of mind that image quality will never be compromised.”


The Sony Cyber-shot HX50V offers enhanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization which reduces camera shake and blur at all ranges. It packs a powerful BIONZ processor which allows the camera to produce high-resolution as well as high-quality images in all types of lighting conditions. This camera is also compatible with TRILUMINOUS Color technology, which is currently available on Sony’s Bravia TVs.

Apart from that, the Cyber-shot HX50V camera features built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, which allows you to wirelessly transfer photos and videos to your smartphones or tablets using the Sony’s Play Memories mobile application. Currently, this app is available for devices running on the Android and iOS platforms. The Sony Cyber-shot HX50V compact digital camera will go on sale from next month for $450.
