Sony India has launched the all new Cyber-shot HX350 high-zoom camera. It is equipped with the Carl ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T coating lens, it offers a huge 50x optical zoom range corresponding from 24mm wide-angle to 1,200mm super-telephoto (35mm). The Clear Image Zoom feature on the camera doubles the maximum magnification to a 100X, bringing distant buildings, people and animals very close.
The HX350 Cyber-shot is loaded with a 20.4MP, high-resolution back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor and a speedy BIONZ X imaging processor for effective and accurate image processing. Even for the handheld indoor and low light shooting, the high-end camera compliments crisp, low-noise images and pristine Full HD video footage.
It also comes with Optical SteadyShot feature that cuts handheld wobbles and camera shake to attain crisper stills. This enables rapidly shifting of a group of lens elements to correct the slightest hand tremors. On the other hand, the Intelligent Active Mode allows users to record Full HD videos equally sharp and blur-free quality with Sony’s proprietary frame analysis technology.
The camera’s high-contrast electronic viewfinder is as accurate as one expects on a DSLR which can also be switched to manually tiltable 7.5cm (3.0-type) LCD with 921k dot resolution.
Another convenient addition is the Motion Shot Video feature, that traces a tennis serve or golf swing as a split-second series of superimposed images.
