Sony DSC-HX5V/B Marketing Specifications

10.2 MP | 10x OPTICAL ZOOM | 3.0” LCD1
The DSC-HX5V has a powerful 10x optical zoom (25mm equivalent)
wide angle G lens capable of capturing 1920x1080i AVCHD movie.
The camera’s “Exmor R” CMOS sensor allows users to capture stunning
low-light images and sweeping panoramic views of up to 270-degrees
in iSweep Panorama mode. Capture the best shot in fast action with
up to 10 frames per seconds shooting at full 10.2MP resolution.
Take clearer photos with less
grain in low-light conditions
Be sure to catch all those
once-in-a lifetime moments
The DSC-HX5V features a 10.2 megapixel,
back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS image
sensor. This advanced technology leverages
the full resolving power of the wide-angle G
lens, plus gives the camera stunning lowlight sensitivity for capturing extraordinarily
clear images with drastically reduced grain.
Working together, the BIONZ® image processor
and “Exmor R” CMOS sensor also enable the
camera’s extremely fast 10fps, Anti Motion Blur,
Hand-held Twilight and 1080i movie modes.9
The DSC-HX5V can capture up to ten full 10.2
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.
Capture breathtaking
panoramic shots
Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode lets capture
stunningly expansive shots with ease. 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 them
up to 100 pictures into one panoramic photo.
This model even detects faces and moving
objects, intelligently stitching subjects of
different widths together to minimize distortion.
Available in standard and wide options, this
feature lets you take panoramic shots up to an
amazing 270 degrees.
AVCHD for TV: 1920x1080/60i
Ideal for playback on HDTV, the AVCHD
format captures a high degree of detail and
smooth movement. Record AVCHD movies
up to 1920 x 1080 at 60i9. Video clips can be
played back directly from the camera, or can
be transferred to DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ media.
They can then be played back on HDTV’s via
compatible Blu-ray Disc™ players, PlayStation®3
consoles and compatible PCs.10
Enjoy smoother movies
Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with
Active Mode gives you the freedom to shoot
movies even while on the move. By providing up
to 10x the correction of standard mode, Active
Mode compensates for excessive camera shake
so you can move along with your subject while
shooting to bring you smoother looking movies.
Professional-quality G Lens
Used in top-of-the-line digital single lens
reflex (DSLR) cameras, the G lenses on the
DSC-HX5V offers a 10x optical zoom (25mm
equivalent) wide-angle lens to capture the
action up close or more of the scene in
landscape or group portraits in tight spots.
Pinpoint the exact location of
every shot you take
An integrated GPS receiver and compass
record the location and direction of every
shot you take. The receiver also automatically
adjusts the camera’s time zone setting, which
is very convenient when traveling. Once
uploaded to compatible PC you can use
supplied PMB software or web application, like
Google Earth™ mapping service. Now you can
relive your adventures in a whole new way!4
