While 1080p HD video recording is impressive enough, Sony's new HX1 Cyber-shot is also the company's first digital still camera to feature "sweep panorama technology" which lets you capture wide lanscape, 224-degree panorama shots. It's also the first Cyber-shot camera to use 1/2.4-inch Exmor CMOS sensor technology which allows the HX1 to achieve burst speeds of 10 frames per second at full 9.1 megapixel resolution in continuous burst mode. Sony claims that the HX1 cybershot takes clearer images with about 50 percent less noise when in handheld twilight or anti-blur modes. Photography enthusiasts will appreciate the camera's high-quality 20x telephoto Sony G lens, BIONZ processor, and Intelligent auto mode features.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 will be available in April for about $500.
