Sony showcases its first ever digital still cyber-shot camera infused with sweep panorama technology. The latest HX1 cyber-shot model is capable of capturing 224 degree panorama shots in just one simple press-and-sweep motion. Not only this, it is Sony’s first 9.1 mega-pixel in such a technology.
Sony HX1 cyber-shot camera is the first of its kind to use an exclusive 1/2.4 inch Exmor (TM) CMOS sensor technology. Such technology is a great support for achieving burst speeds of 10 frames per second in 9.1 mega-pixel resolution in continuous burst mode.
The “x” factor that sets Sony HX1 apart from the rest is that it uses an electronic shutter to achieve high speed. This also helps reduce distortion while shooting a moving object. And not to forget, it is the first ever Sony cyber-shot camera to include a Sony G lens and 1800p HD movie clip recording capabilities.
The latest addition to the Sony’s cyber-shot line up also features smile technology, selected face memory function, flash, auto focus, auto exposure settings, etc. and the feature that can highlighted the most is that it takes two pictures simultaneously and saves only one in which the eyes are least closed.
In all, the Sony cyber-shot DSC -HX1 camera will be available in April for about $500 and pre-sales will start in March. Orders can be placed online at sonystyle.com
