Sony DSC-HX10V and DSC-H90 Cyber-shot Digital Cameras


Rounding out the low-end of the H-Series (high-zoom) line-up for 2012, Sony announced the DSC-HX10V and entry-level DSC-H90 Cyber-shot point-and-shoot digital cameras. The HX10V get the same 18.2 MP “Exmor R” CMOS sensor as Sony's, just announced, higher-priced H-Series cameras, while the H90 uses a 16.1 MP CCD sensor.

Both cameras offer 16x optical zoom, but the HX10V can achieve a 32x digital “Clear Image Zoom.” Each model includes “Optical Steady Shot” to reduce any blurring caused by camera shake during shooting — even with the zoom extended.

The entry-level H90 camera shoots 720p HD videos, while the HX10V records at 1920×1080/60i.
