Carry less, shoot more: two new travel and selfie-friendly cameras from Sony put fabulous holiday photo opportunities in closer reach this summer. The world’s most compact cameras in their class, the Cyber-shot™ DSC-HX90V and DSC-WX500, are big on sheer picture quality plus plenty of easy-to-use pro-style functions.
Despite sharing a raft of technologies that deliver amazing picture quality, the two cameras offer distinct choices for photographers looking for a compact high-zoom camera. Both are built around extremely high quality optics with a ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T 30x zoom lens and benefit from the power of an Exmor RTM CMOS sensor with 18.2 megapixels and BIONZ X™ processor. Separately, for the photographers who prefer to frame their shots more traditionally, the HX90V features a pop-up OLED Tru-Finder™ and a Control Ring that can be assigned to functions such as manual focusing or step zoom. The feeling of control when using the HX90V is further enhanced by a new ergonomic grip that guarantees comfortable handling in any situation.
For photographers who prefer to add perfectly-framed selfies to their repertoire, both the HX90V and WX500 have a 180-degree tilt LCD screen that allows easy retouching with Beauty Effect and “My Best Portrait” on PlayMemories Camera AppsTM, so you can see exactly how you will appear in your shots.
Despite their pocket-sized dimensions, both the HX90V and WX500 benefit from 5-axis image stabilisation, which keeps pictures blur-free even when exploring the outer limits of the camera’s zoom range whilst shooting movies.
The new Cyber-shot™ HX90V and WX500 high-zoom compact travel cameras from Sony will be available in Singapore from June 2015 onwards at all Sony Stores, Sony Centers and selected Sony authorized dealers.
