Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V Digital Camera is an 18.2Mp ultra-high definition camera that also features 1080/60p HD video capture, and numerous other highlights. Designed with more than just snapshots in mind, the HX30V will no doubt take a great snap, but it can do more than that. Every aspect of the camera has been planned out to help you make great-looking memories.
From the 20x optical zoom Sony G lens to the 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD TruBlack display, the HX30V has your back. Auto functions like High Speed AF ensure that you can make stellar images no matter what the situation. Other useful tools include Active 3-Way Optical Image Stabilization, iSCN - which detects 33 scenes and adjusts the camera accordingly - and Natural Flash, among many others.
The DSC-HX30V boasts WiFi sharing and also includes GPS and Compass functionality for everything from geo-tagging to storage by location shot. No matter what you choose to record, however, all files can be stored to Memory Stick Duo media and SD/SDHC and SDXC memory cards.
18.2Mp Exmor R CMOS Sensor
The 18.2Mp Exmor R CMOS sensor captures ultra-high definition images that take full advantage
of the camera's sharp Sony G lens. The sensor enables advanced processing that reduces noise
levels up to 6 times more than other sensors, resulting in stunning low light images with incredible details
High Speed AF
To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor R CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput
to deliver high-quality image signals to the camera's BIONZ processor. The result is fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds, even in low light
Optical Zoom Plus Clear Image Zoom
Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp
images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent
pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos
Full HD 1080/60p
Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60p in 1080 AVCHD video. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV. With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with 3-Way Active Mode
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization reduces shake and blur by countering camera
movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital
rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths
WiFi lets you quickly upload photos and videos directly to social media sites, back them up
on a network-connected PC, or view them on a large screen TV. WiFi-enabled smartphones
and tablets can also pull images from your camera and upload them to social media.
GPS and Compass
GPS and compass record location data and camera direction as you shoot movies and photos.
GPS Log lets users track a photographic journey and later view the path and images on a map.
Map View in "Play Memories Home" software, allows users to view images on a map showing
where they were taken. The logged path and images can also be displayed on Google Earth
Capture the Decisive Moment with Up to 10 fps
Capture full 18.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects
3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama Mode
Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities. Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new
Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select camera models have up to nine different effects
Photo Creativity allows you to fine-tune your exposure settings, such as brightness, color, and vividness, and quickly choose the right enhancement for your subject. Now you can view Picture Effects and Photo Creativity effects in real time on the camera's monitor or in the viewfinder before shooting
DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis
on the subject. Now our point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The
system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping
the subject crisp and clear
Superior Auto Mode
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The camera automatically
recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using Backlight Correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology. Superior Auto intelligently detects 33 scenes for still images and 44 scenes for movies, making it easy to get the best shot
Face Detection Technology
Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends
Smile Shutter Technology
Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile
Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority
and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can be
used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that
beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting
It's frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot
Soft Skin Mode
Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the
appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot
Intelligent Scene Recognition Mode
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects 33 different types of scenes
and selects the appropriate camera settings. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced. In
Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the
camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep
Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash controls the white balance of both the background and main subjects
Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the
shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces
Sweep Multi Angle Mode
In Sweep Multi Angle mode, the camera takes 15 images at different angles as it sweeps across the scene. By tilting the camera during playback, the camera's Gyro Sensor detects motion and displays the image in a 3D-like view on the camera's LCD
