The Sony Cyber-shot HX100V is a compact digital camera. This camera is equipped with a 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, which is back-illuminated. The back-illuminated design increases the amount of total light captured, and therefore improves low light performance. To enhance subject detail, the Cyber-shot HX100V is equipped with a 30x optical zoom. The hi-speed Auto Focus technology allows you to prepare quickly for a picture, so that you can capture spontaneous action. With this camera's 1080p video-capturing ability, you can also film live action. With the Sony Cyber-shot HX100V's BIONZ imaging processor, the results of your picture or video will be available to you instantly.
