With a 10-megapixel back-illuminated sensor, a 10x zoom, a built-in GPS, and a very clever way of capturing stable images in low light, the Sony HX5V is another pocket long-zoom digital camera worthy of consideration.
The Sony HX5V is one of the few digital cameras on the market to include Sony's Handheld Twilight mode, which takes six rapid images and combines them to form one low-light shot that's usually better than what other cameras can get at high ISO in the same light. The Sony HX5V's 10x zoom ranges from 25-250mm, offering a good wide-angle to solid telephoto range. Its unique grip provides a good hold while not protruding from the body, allowing the HX5V to slip easily into most pockets. The Sony HX5V also serves as a competent HD video camera, recording at up to 1080i at 60 fields per second, in addition to recording stereo audio.
