The DSC-HX90V and the DSC-WX500 are point-and-shoot cameras that sport an 18.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensors with 30x ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T*lens alongside a “powerful” BIONZ X processor and Optical SteadyShot for stabilisation and crisp outputs.
The compact Hi-Zoom HX90V, which will sell for around $430 (BHD 150) in June, will include 60x “Clear Image” digital zoom, a popup OLED Tru-Finder EVF, 3.0 type LCD screen that could be tilted up to 180 degrees and Full High Definition recording.
On the other hand, the Ultra-Compact WX500 $330 (BHD 110) will flaunt pretty much everything the HX90V has minus the viewfinder. As such, it will also be a tad lighter on the pocket at around 236 grams as compared to the former’s 245 grams. Both clickers will also come with WiFi and NFC for speedy content transfer.
Sony will also throw in an optional body case that will offer photographers with a better grip and protection, while an ECM-CG60 shotgun microphone will be fitted on the cameras’ multi-interface shoe for precise audio recording.
Compact can best describe Sony’s new snappers, considering that it is mobile enough to fit on your side pocket comfortably. Treat yourself with capturing those moments and memories beautifully and let your Smartphones do your communication, rather than a capturing device.
