The Cyber-shot HX50V Digital Camera from Sony is a compact camera with a 20.4MP BSI Exmor R CMOS Sensor and a powerful 30x optical zoom lens. In combination with the BIONZ image processor, the 20.4MP CMOS sensor provides sharp imaging and fast autofocus speeds. The Sony G 30x optical zoom lens has a 35mm format focal length equivalency of 24-720mm which means its powerful zoom covers a full range of shooting situations from true wide angle to ultra-telephoto. In addition, the BIONZ image processor creates Clear Image Digital Zoom which allows you to double the optical zoom range for extreme close-ups and distant image capture. The HX50V also supports Full HD 1080p video capture in the AVCHD format.
