Sony have today pulled the curtain off three of its latest cameras, the Cyber-Shot HX300, WX300 and TX30, the ffirst of which, the HX300 includes a 50x optical zoom range and is a huge upgrade from the previous HX200V camera which only had a 30x optical zoom.
Within the camera there’s also a new Exnor R CMOS sensor with a 20.4 Megapixel resolution, Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens, Optical SteadyShot (image stabilisation), autofocus settings and that’s about all we know about the HX300.
However the HX300 isn’t the only camera that was reveal, with the new WX300 digital camera also announced, alongside the claim that it is in fact, the world’s smallest and lightest digital camera with a 20x optical zoom, the camera also includes a Exmor R CMOS sensor with 18.2 megapixel resolution.
The camera also features Sony’s G lens, and the same Optical SteadyShot technology as mentioned before, and Sony has mentioned that it is 3.6 times quicker at focusing at the longest end of its zoom when compared to the HX20V.
There’s also built-in WiFi, but that’s where the details stop I’m afraid.
Last but certainly not least is the TX30, which is Sony’s latest waterproof and beach-ready camera, with a 5x optical zoom and waterproofing up to 10m, Sony says it is the world’s slimmest camera recording at such a depth.
There’s also new on-board LED-lights, an 18.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and that’s all we know about the TX30.
The HX300 will launch in mid-March and the TX30 and WX300 will hit shelves in April.
