Professional Quality 20x G-Lens
Renowned for their sharpness and high quality performance, Sony G-Lenses are at the heart of the Alpha SLR system. Now available with the HX1, this newly developed 20x optical G-Lens brings exceptional value to the Cyber-shot point-and-shoot line. From landscapes to action shots, this optic ensures first-class image quality in a convenient 35mm focal equivalent of 28-560mm.
3" Clear Photo LCD
Tilt up or down 90 degrees to easily frame your shot from high and low angles. Sony's large 3" Clear Photo LCD combines a wide-viewing angle and anti-reflective coatings to make composing and reviewing your photos a pleasure--even under harsh lighting conditions.
High Speed Shooting (10fps)
By employing a newly developed mechanical shutter system, the HX1 is able to produce maximum quality, high resolution photos at up to 10 frames-per-second. The special 9-point Autofocus system tracks action and moving subjects to ensure you never miss the perfect moment!
Sweep Panorama Mode
By stitching a series of images into a single frame, you can bring ultra-wide landscapes and vertical studies to life-like proportions. With the Cyber-shot DSC-HX1, stitch-panorama photography is as easy as press and sweep! Using Sweep Panorama Mode, simply depress the shutter and sweep horizontally or vertically. The HX1 captures multiple photos and stitches them into a breath-taking, beautiful panorama.
HD Video Recording
The HX1 captures amazing, 1080p HD video complete with stereo sound! Capture a scene from that concert, a friend's wedding, or your up-coming vacation. Easily share your memories on your big screen HDTV by connecting the camera through the all-digital HDMI connector.
Handheld Twilight Mode
No tripod? No problem. Handheld Twilight Mode captures six images in a fraction of a second with one press of the shutter button, retaining moving subjects from a single frame and superimposing the remainder of the composition from the rest. Increased sensitivity from multiple frames reduces the noise and artifacting associated with traditional long exposure digital photography.
