Sony Cyber-shot® HX5V/B

I have been using Sony Cyber-shot® cameras since I was introduced to it about 8 years ago and I’ve been loyal ever since. Its functions and easy-to-use capabilities made for great shots and it has just been getting better ever since.

Sony’s latest Cyber-shot® Digital Camera HX5V/B is chock full of features that will ensure that your low-light shots (for all you clubbers) and action shots will be absolutely captivating. Did we mention full HD video quality?

The Cyber-shot® HX5V/B allows you to capture excellent 10.2 megapixel images and sweeping panoramic views that will be stitched right up for you.

The internal ‘Exmor R’ CMOS Sensor reduces image noise when you’re shooting in low light. Coupled with the Handheld Twilight function, which captures six images in a fraction of a second with one press of the shutter and combines the data from all six to create a single image with immense detail, your night shots will be sharper and cleaner even without a tripod.

Cam-whores everywhere can rejoice with the self-portrait timer. Using Face Detection technology, it triggers a 2-second timer before snapping your photos once it detects your lovely mug. No more terrible cut-off photos.

One of the loved functions for people who aren’t particularly photo savvy includes the Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode, which automatically adjusts lighting and other camera setting to ensure clearer pictures, reduce red-eye and better skin tone.

Can’t remember where you took that kick-ass shot? Don’t worry about it. The HX5V/B has a built-in GPS and Compass that tags your location to each photo.

Oh yeah, we’re liking this Cyber-shot®. It’s available now in sleek Gold and Black.
