The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX7V is one of five 3D-compliant digital cameras released together in early 2011. Unlike the other models in the series, the DSC-HX7V features a lower-grade Sony G lens, though it still maintains the capacity to capture 3D still images up to 4608x3456 in JPEG, and 2D 1080/60i videos in AVCHD/MP4/MPEG-4. One notable feature on this model is a built-in GPS and compass system that allows the user to record the location and direction of a particular photo. Also included is support for 3D panorama shots, background defocusing (a DSLR-like feature not typically found in compact cameras), and a 3" LCD touchscreen display.
