The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V Digital Camera is an advanced point-and-shoot that has 18.2Mp, 40x Clear Image Zoom, and Active 3-Way stabilization to its credit, not to mention 1080/60i HD video capture. In addition, the HX20V also provides you with GPS and compass functionality for geo-tagging and more!
When you consider all the auto features of the camera as well, you'll find the HX20V is more than a snapshot machine, it's a real memory-maker.
Those 18.2Mp just don't work alone to provide you with stellar images, they have the help of High Speed AF - for clear photos, even in low-light - along with all the aforementioned features. Other notable features include the Sony G lens and a 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD TruBlack display. The camera also puts a 10 fps burst mode at your disposal, and numerous auto functions for great photos without the guesswork. Face detection, Anti-blink, iSCN, Natural Flash and more all work hard to ensure that your memories will be beautiful for years to come.
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. An advanced BIONZ processor rapidly analyzes the Extra-High Sensitivity data from the sensor, and activates By-Pixel Super Resolution technologies to reduce noise levels up to 6X compared to previous CMOS 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 60i in 1080 AVCHD video. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HDTV. 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
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
for photos and 44 scenes for videos 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
