Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V Digital Camera (Black) is a compact camera loaded with professional-quality features guaranteed to bring passion to your photography: a 16.2MP high-resolution back-illuminated CMOS sensor for improved low-light sensitivity, increased speed, reduced grain and augmented image clarity, and a 16x wide-angle 24-384mm (equivalent in 35mm format) super zoom lens. You can capture up to 10 frames per second at full resolution, too.
Dazzling full 1920 x 1080 HD video makes possible crystal-clear movies with stereo sound. The 3" LCD monitor has 921,000 dots of resolution. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization keeps the blurry pictures away when using the telephoto range of the lens, or in dim lighting situations, and hi-speed linear focus keeps pace with whatever you're shooting, no matter how fast-moving. A background defocus function gives you the look of professional portraits, with the subject in tack-sharp focus and the background way out of focus, and backlight correction HDR keeps high-contrast situations under control by automatically combining 3 photos at different exposures and combining them for one photo with correct tonal range. 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama let you view the world in new ways.
Friends and family will love how they look in your photos when you use the Face Detection, Smile Shutter, Anti-blink, and Soft Skin functions to show people at their best. And when you just want a point-and-shoot camera with no fuss, no muss, the Superior Auto mode has you covered--just press the shutter button and the HX9V takes care producing the best photo possible.
