/ 2 years ago


Sony has recently unveiled some more additions to their Cyber-Shot digital camera range. The new cameras feature slimmed down bodies and some more high-end functions.

The HX90,HX90V and the WX500 are extremely compact cameras yet provide some seriously big specs; the cameras use an 18 megapixel Sensor and take advantage of the Bionz X image processor to provide you with some seriously high quality photos. The cameras use a lens that provides you with up to 30x optical zoom, and a further digital processed zoom up to 60x. The cameras have an ISO range between 80 and 3200 then extendable to 12800 if required.

The camera range has a five-axis image stabilization system, similar to their Alpha range. The system allows you to record stunning full HD movies at 60fps. Various effects are available too; you can add effects such as the Beauty effect to your videos and photos. The software provides 13 effects for still images and 7 effects for videos with WiFi and NFC capabilities allowing for you to seamlessly to connect to the cloud and the PlayMemories apps.

The cameras have 3 inch LCD screens on the back to allow you to have a sneak peek at your holiday snaps. The HX90 and the HX90V have a pop up view finder too if you really want to get the best photo.

Sony is planning to release the cameras in June at around £230 for the WX500 and £290 for the GPS equipped HX90V. The prices for the other cameras have not been revealed as of yet.
