Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V – Full-featured, ultra high zoom (30x)

If you’re ready to upgrade from your measly little point and shoot, there are actually a few different options you can consider. You can go all out and get yourself a DSLR, you can get one of those new mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, or you can get one of these ultra zoom cameras that are slotted between point-and-shoots and interchangeable lens cameras.

Sony has one such camera with the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V. It is a bit smaller than a DSLR but has tons of pro features you’ll really enjoy. The DSX-HX200V features an 18MP “Exmor R” CMOS sensor paired up with a 27,, Carl Zeiss Sonnar T lens with 30x optical zoom. It also features full HD Movie recording as well as simultaneous still image shooting while recording. It feels very DSLR-ish in your hands and even features a manual focusing ring. Unlike a DSLR however, you can not swap out the lens but you also never need to worry about cleaning the sensor or exposing it to dust. The Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V even features GPS geo-tagging.

You get many of the same features as Sony’s more expensive NEX-5N camera including super fast AF and very good low-light results but at a much lower price.
