Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 offers an incredibly high optical zoom at
20x (28mm equivalent) wide Sony G Lens. The DSC-HX1 offers supreme
performance for the most demanding users with up to 10fps, Sweep
Panorama for impressive panoramic images of up to 224-degrees and
1080-line HD Movie9. With its 3.0” titling LCD1 screen users will harness
all of these features in even the most challenging of physical spaces
so they never miss the best shot.
Take clearer photos with less
grain in low-light conditions
The DSC-HX1 features a 9.1 megapixel “Exmor
R” CMOS image sensor. This advanced
technology leverages the full resolving power
of the camera’s precision G-Lens, plus gives
the camera stunning low-light sensitivity for
capturing extraordinarily clear images with
drastically reduced grain. You can output
stunning, photo-quality prints up to 13”x19”
(A3+ size), or crop your shots and still enjoy
high-resolution images.
Get in close, closer, closest
The 20x optical zoom (28mm equivalent)
extends your reach to bring you closer to
the action, perfect for sporting events,
wildlife, distant landscape views and
dramatic portrait shots.
Be sure to catch all those
once-in-a lifetime moments
The DSC-HX1 can capture up to ten full 9.1
megapixel resolution images per second.
So now you can be sure to capture the bat
hitting the game-winning homerun, the lead
runner crossing the finish line, and other
decisive moments. The camera also uses a
mechanical shutter to help reduce distortion
when continuously shooting moving subjects,
with minimal blur.
MP4 for PC: 1080p
MP4 is ideal for enjoying and sharing HD
movies on your PC, Mac® or the Internet.
Depending upon the camera model, you can
record video up to 1440x1080 or at 30fps. A
MP4 HD file is a compressed single file format,
perfect for uploading to computers and Web
sharing sites like YouTube™. (Compatible
computer with Internet compatibility required.)
Capture breathtaking
panoramic shots
Sweep Panorama mode lets you go far beyond
the capabilities of traditional wide-angle lenses
to capture stunningly expansive shots. Simply
press the shutter button and sweep the camera
horizontally or vertically over your desired
scene. The camera shoots continuously at a
high speed, automatically adjusts the position
of each image, then seamlessly stitches up
to 100 pictures together into one panoramic
photo. Available in wide and ultra-wide options,
this feature lets you take panoramic shots up to
an amazing 224 degrees.
Take sharper night shots without
a tripod
The Hand-held Twilight Mode captures six
images in a fraction of a second with one
press of the shutter, combining the data from
all six to create a single image of extraordinary
detail and low noise.

moving subjects
