Product Description

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 camera with Exmor CMOS technology offers up to 10fps shooting and features Sweep Panorama mode that can seamlessly combine multiple shots to produce striking images, advance modes that reduce noise by approximately 50 percent even in difficult shooting situations, as well as 1080p movie recording. Additionally it features professional quality 20x wide angle G-lens, 3.0-inch tiltable LCD screen and Intelligent Auto mode.

  • 9.0-megapixel Exmor CMOS image sensor for photo-quality pictures up to 13 x 19 inches
  • 20x optical zoom; 28mm wide-angle Sony G-Lens
  • Capture up to 10 frames per second; HD (1080p) movie capture
  • 3.0-inch Clear Photo LCD tilt display; 90-degree tilt, horizontal and vertical
  • 11 MB built-in memory; capture images to Memory Stick Duo/Memory Stick Pro Duo media (not included)
Key Features
  • 9.1-megapixel Super HAD CCD Image Sensor
    The HX1 features a 9.1-megapixel Exmor CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera's precision G-Lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced noise. With 9.1 megapixels, you can create stunning, photo-quality prints up to 13 x 19 inches, or crop your images and still come away with high resolution shots.

  • Professional-quality G-Lens
    Designed and manufactured to the highest standards of optical performance, the Sony G-Lens is optimized to perfectly complement the advanced image sensors and image processing technology in Sony's cameras. G lenses are used in top of the line digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras and advanced pro-sumer HD Camcorders. Capture the action up close with the 20x optical zoom, and with the 28mm wide angle lens the HX1 even allows you to capture more of the scenes in landscape or group portraits. The HX1's G Lens has a six blade aperture capable of producing a beautiful bokeh (beautifully defocused backgrounds with a soft natural feel). The aspherical lens elements made from ED (extra-low dispersion) minimize chromatic aberration common to high-magnification lenses.

  • 20x High Zoom
    20x optical zoom extends your reach and helps bring you closer to the action-- a real benefit for sporting events, wildlife, distant landscape views and dramatic portrait shots.

  • 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
    Widen your view and capture more of the city, landscape, or group with a 28mm wide-angle G lens.

  • 3.0-inch Clear Photo LCD tilt display (230k pixels)
    Compose and show off your images on the large 3.0-inch (230K) Clear Photo LCD Plus display, which tilts up or down approximately 90 degrees for easier high and low-angle shooting and features a special anti-reflective coating for sharp visibility, even in bright sunlight.

  • CMOS Sensor
    Enjoy extremely high resolution, fine tonal gradation and fast speed that faithfully reproduces every detail of your subject and reduces visual noise. The Exmor CMOS sensor brings out the full potential of the lens to ensure clear, high-precession image quality.

  • BIONZ image processor
    The BIONZ image processor delivers the high resolution and fast performance you expect from a Sony digital camera.

  • High Speed Shooting (10fps)
    The HX1 can capture full 9.1-megapixel resolution images at up to 10 fps, helping to ensure you never miss the decisive moment. What's more, the HX1 employs a mechanical shutter that helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects.

  • Sweep Panorama Mode
    Reach beyond the traditional wide angle lens, and capture more breathtaking shots with the Sweep Panorama Mode. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction (horizontal or vertical), and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed and then seamlessly stitches the images together to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and ultrawide options, the camera can take panoramic shots of up to 224 degrees, which is wider than a fish-eye lens. Now capturing wide landscapes or church spires or skyscrapers are as easy and press and sweep.

  • Handheld Twilight Mode
    Capture cleaner and sharper night shots without using a tripod. When set to Handheld Twilight Mode, the HX1 captures six images in a fraction of a second with one press of the shutter, keeping the moving object from one and superimposing the rest of the frame from the 6 images doubling the sensitivity to create a single optimized image with 50 percent less noise than an image shot with a camera with a traditional image sensor.
