Sony DSC-HX80 Digital Camera with 30x Zoom and EVF

Sony DSC-HX80

Sony just announced the world’s smallest digital camera with a 30x zoom lens (24-720mm). The $350 DSC-HX80 compact camera also bundles in a 18-megapixel Exmor R CMOS Sensor, Wi-Fi / NFC, and a retractable OLED Tru-Finder (EVF). On the back, there is a 921k dot LCD screen that tilts a full 180 degrees. That makes is easy to frame an arms-length portrait or selfie.

If electronics viewfinders (EVF) are your thing, Sony also offers it on the identical looking DSC-HX90V. That camera adds GPS for about $80 more.
