Comprising the essentials needed to begin shooting, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX80 Digital Camera with Accessory Kit from B&H bundles the advanced point-and-shoot with a 16GB SDHC memory card and a protective camera pouch.

  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX80 Digital Camera

    Blending an advanced, low-light optimized image sensor with a long-reaching zoom, the Cyber-shot DSC-HX80 Digital Camera from Sony is also characterized by its svelte form factor and intuitive handling design. At the heart is an 18.2MP 1/2.3" Exmor R CMOS sensor, which features a back-illuminated design, along with a BIONZ X image processor to avail smooth image quality, reduced noise, and an expandable sensitivity range up to ISO 12800. The sensor and processor combination also avail fast performance throughout the camera system, including a 10 fps continuous shooting rate and the ability to record Full HD 1080p video at 60 fps in the XAVC S format. Balancing the imaging capabilities is an apt physical design, which incorporates both a pop-up OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder and 180° tilting 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor into its design, along with built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for wireless image sharing and remote camera control via a linked smartphone or tablet. Contrasting the sleek size, the HX80 is also distinguished by its expansive 30x zoom Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens, which provides a 24-720mm equivalent zoom range. Spanning wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives, this lens benefits from its 5-axis Optical SteadyShot image stabilization; minimizing the appearance of camera shake to produce sharper results. A true all-in-one pocketable camera, the HX80 blends both form and function, as well as imaging versatility to handle a wide array of everyday shooting needs.

    18.2MP Exmor R CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor
    Using an 18.2MP 1/2.3" Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor, the HX80 is able to produce high-resolution stills and full HD video with notable clarity and smooth tonality. The sensor employs a back-illuminated design, too, allowing it to achieve reduced noise levels along with a native sensitivity range to ISO 3200, which can be extended to ISO 12800 for working in low-light conditions. The sensor and processor also provide a continuous shooting rate of 10 fps for up to 10 consecutive frames in a burst.

    Additionally, Full HD 1080 video recording is supported in 60p, 60i, or 24p frame rates, with the ability to use the high-quality 50 Mbps XAVC S format or familiar high-definition AVCHD format. When using either of these formats, a secondary Internet-friendly MP4 version can be simultaneously recorded for easy online sharing.
    Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 30x Optical Zoom Lens
    Covering wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives, the built-in 30x Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens spans a 24-720mm equivalent focal length range. Five aspherical elements are incorporated in the optical design, which reduce spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range, and a T* anti-reflective coating helps to control lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality.

    Complementing the optical design, the lens's performance also benefits from its 5-axis Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake. An Intelligent Active Mode is also available to reduce blur common to shooting video while moving. Also aiding in achieving sharp imagery, Fast Intelligent AF employs an optimized spatial object detection algorithm to quicken focusing speeds as well as refine accuracy for consistently sharp results.
    Body Design and Wi-Fi
    • Helping to maintain a sleek form factor, the 638k-dot OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder employs a unique pop-up design to retain a pocketable overall size when not in use.
    • A comfortable viewing alternative, the rear 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor employs a 180° tilting design to facilitate working from low angles or taking front-facing selfies.
    • The large right-hand grip offers increased comfort and support for longer shooting sessions.
    • A customizable function button can be programmed to adjust one of 12 oft-used camera settings, such as white balance, Picture Effects, and more; for faster, more intuitive access to settings switching.
    • A Digital Level Gauge helps to ensure consistently level horizons and plumb verticals during shooting.
    • Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC lets you wirelessly share imagery to a smartphone or tablet for instant sharing online. This connectivity also lets you remotely control the camera from a mobile device.
    • A series of PlayMemories Camera Apps can be added to the camera to increase the functionality and add new shooting modes.
    • The included NP-BX1 rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 390 shots per charge when working with the rear monitor, or 360 shots per charge when shooting with the electronic viewfinder.

Sony DSC-HX80 reviews

Cyber-shot DSC-HX80 Digital Camera with Accessory Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Senior's almost perfect camera. This is a great little camera with everything I wanted - small, Zoom, EVF, flash, and 18 Mpx. As a Senior person I've gone through several Nikon 35mm slr cameras; several Canon DLSR cameras: several mirorless camers; and a number of other DSCs. The Sony HX80 is almost a perfect camera for me - for travel; for grandkids sports, for great grandkids action, and for relatively low light pictures. I generally use it up to 3200 ISO. It could only be perfection for me - IF it had a faster lens at about the same weight and size. Until such a thing becomes commonplace - this should last me some years, very nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Carry Everywhere Camera I bought this to have when my DSLR is not convenient (concerts, bike rides, etc). I took it along with the DSLR on a trip to the UK, and have been totally impressed by the photo quality, particularly the HDR mode. It's fast and able to handle low light well. I found myself reaching for it just as often as my DSLR. The features of the camera like wireless transfer and flip up viewfinder are really handy. If you find yourself leaving the DSLR at home, but being disappointed with the pictures you take with your phone, this is a great alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with this camera I bought this camera to use when my D750 and lenses are just too much to carry. I do a lot of hiking and wanted a pocketable camera with a long zoom to grab wildlife photos. I am happy with the image quality for photos taken at ISO 400 and below. For low light, image quality suffers owing to the small sensor. This is the trade off that is necessary to reduce the camera and lens size. Overall I am pleased with the results I am getting with this tiny camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice camera in a very small package The first thing I noticed is just how small this camera is. �I was, and still am, concerned about it slipping out of my hand, as the grip along the right side is also quite small. �However, if you are looking for an ultra zoom P&S camera that will fit in your pocket, as I was, this may be the camera for you. �The quality of the image is superb for such a small sensor. �The image stabilization allows me to shoot hand-held even zoomed out to the max 720. � I have had only one problem with the camera so far. �When I took it to its max zoom, the lens stuck in that position and would not retract. �I had to turn to camera off and back on to get it to reset. �So far, that has only happened once, but I have read other comments noting that same problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! I own a very large DSLR with telephoto lenses and wanted something small to capture a few wedding moments, as I am not the photographer but a guest. Last week I took the Sony Cyber-shot for a test shoot at the Statue of Liberty. I returned home and downloaded the photos to my computer and was very happy with the results. The images were sharp, little to no noise and had perfect color capture. The camera is great and at a very low price point it is most impressive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value I bought the HX80 just before departing on a vacation trip to Berlin and Copenhagen. I have a RX100-III, and the plan was to use both cameras: RX100 indoors or at night because of its low light (low-noise) capabilities, and the HX80 outdoors where I might need more reach and noise would not be a problem. In use, these proved to be true. The camera works well, the 720 mm zoom is amazing. But there are some drawbacks: - It does NOT record Raw images files (bummer...I misread the specs). - The images are grainier, even at low ISO, than the RX100. - On Aperture Priority and Manual, adjusting the f-stop and focus is a bit more klugy than the RX100 because there is no focus ring. - The lens is slower, but this is to be expected with a zoom. - Writing 6-8MB jpg images is slow, especially if you use one of the automatic settings. If you want a small snapshot camera that is not very expensive ($338) and has excellent reach, the HX80 is just fine. If you need better optics take your DSLR or a bridge camera, such as the Sony RX10-III with 600mm zoom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good point-shot camera for travel. We bought DSC-HX80 for our Alaska trip (don't want to carry my DLSR). It's small and easy to use. The picture quality is pretty good. we are happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Camera is ok...Recording is good! Was looking for a small, compact camera to use during a trip to Japan. Pros: • Small, compact, and light • Easy to use menu • Smooth videos • Great zooming • Viewfinder and flash works well • Sharing images and video is pretty easy and their mobile app works like a charm. • Long battery life Cons: • Auto-Focus did not work very well for me. I stayed mostly in Inteligent/Superior Auto mode. Sometimes would focus exactly on what I needed, but often would require multiple attempts. • Did not work well in low light settings • Image quality is just ok.� Overall: Most smartphones could easily match this camera in terms of taking photo's, but the video capturing capabilities for the camera is superb. Was very disappointed in the auto focus and low light shots. However, it did do its job taking my phones place and saving battery. Feel like this camera is priced higher than it's worth ~$250.
