Sony took a different approach to maximizing the advantage of a CMOS sensor in a long zoom digital camera, while keeping the resolution low to keep expectations a bit more realistic.
The result is the Sony HX1, a 20x zoom digital camera that can do what most consumers want -- get in close -- while delivering good 11x14-inch printed results. The Sony HX1's 20x zoom ranges from 28 to 560mm equivalent, and it maintains good image quality across that range. Other unique features in the Sony HX1 digital camera include Handheld Twilight mode, which combines images in-camera for better low light performance, and Sweep Panorama mode, which makes capturing panoramic images as easy as scanning the horizon with your eye. The Sony HX1 is a unique digital camera, one we enjoyed a lot. Click here to read our review of the Sony Cyber-shot HX1.
