Sony Cyber-shot HX200V Camera
Make No Compromises
It’s all about zooming in and getting the best possible picture, isn’t it? Perhaps you’re not ready for the step to digital SLR but you certainly want a camera that can reproduce your vision. One that takes care of everything automatically or works with your creativity when you want to experiment with manual settings. This bridge camera does all that for you, whether you’re shooting high resolution pictures, 3D panoramas or full HD video.
Getting You Right Up Close
How many times have you wanted to zoom in and catch the action without moving an inch? This camera gets you up to 30 times closer at the touch of a button. That means you can shoot photos with levels of detail and clarity that wouldn’t be possible with a low zoom.
Keep Shooting in Low Light
Some of the most dramatic pictures are taken in that twilight between night and day. But the fact is, you need a pretty decent camera to capture it perfectly. How many times have you shot at dawn or dusk, only to get back home and be royally disappointed with the dark, grainy results? With this camera, you’ll have no such problem as it includes an Exmor R CMOS low light sensor.
Everything Sharp and Vivid
There’s nothing complicated about megapixels -- the more you have in your camera, the sharper and finer your pictures. No more fuzzy faces, diluted detail or blurred backgrounds. If you want to blow up a great shot of yourself and get it framed, it’s a sure bet you’ll see much more detail with a high megapixel camera. This one has plenty of pixels -- more than 18 million to be precise -- which is more than enough to make impressive large prints or crop a picture to focus on something specific without losing definition.
Pro Shots with Ease
This camera makes taking professional-looking pictures a doddle. How? By including Optical SteadyShot for shake-free, blur-free photos or videos even while walking or zooming in and Superior Auto for completely automatic light and focus setting of up to 15 scenes*.
Be Bold Enough to Explore
Sometimes you want to do it your way to put your own touch and tone to a picture. Take full control and pilot your own photography with a range of DSLR-like manual functions, including manual ring for smooth zoom and focus, jog dial, White Balance shift, custom button and memory recall. Try it and you’ll never look back.
Films Sparkling HD Video
It’s a windy day on the beach. The parasol has gone cartwheeling towards the sea and all the family are in hot pursuit. Except you. A photo won’t quite bring out the comedy in the scene so you switch to video and start filming, all at the touch of a button and in glorious high definition. Look at the colours in the parasol, the detail in the surf, the perfectly reproduced panic in their voices – in stereo of course. Then when you get back home, transfer everything to your PC. PlayMemories software does everything for you in seconds so you can get editing or uploading or emailing in the time it takes to make a cuppa.
Intelligent Sweep Panorama
There’s times when the scenery is just so vast and never-ending that even a wide angle lens can’t catch it all. The solution -- Intelligent Sweep Panorama. You simply press the shutter while sweeping the camera slowly from one side to the other to create one panoramic image.
Looks Great in 3D
If you’ve got a 3D TV in your living room, why wouldn’t you want a 3D camera? This camera takes great 3D photos -- just press the shutter button and it takes two consecutive shots then analyses depth and clarity to create a single 3D image.
Tracks Your Adventures
Like travelling? Good, then you’ll appreciate having GPS on your camera. It tells you just where you took that shot of the mountains and displays your position on screen during your journey. You can relive your adventure when you get back home with online map views on your computer.
Take portraits and other photos with natural blur, just as you would with a Digital SLR camera. Background Defocus mode is easy to use and allows you to choose low, medium or high blur. It’s the same kind of dynamic effect you see in the movies and really gives you the freedom to get artistic with your pictures. Great for sharply defined close-ups of people or flowers against a blurred forest or field.
Need a Creative Boost
Perk up your pictures easily using Picture Effects. Enhance mood and style by choosing from a full range of effects including Toy Camera, Partial Colour for stunning monochrome shots, Soft High-Key, trendy Pop Colour, watercolour and Illustration.
Let’s Face It, We Like Smiles
They’re natural, spontaneous, here one moment, gone the next. You just don’t have time to set up your camera for a quick smile shot so this one does it all for you. Smile Shutter automatically takes pictures when people smile -- great for brides and grooms, birthday celebrations and baby chuckles. Face Detection automatically adjusts exposure, focus and skin tone so everyone looks more natural.
* Scenes include High Sensitivity, Night Scene, Handheld Twilight, Night Portrait, Landscape, Soft Snap, Soft Skin, Anti Motion Blur, Backlight Correction HDR, Beach, Snow, Fireworks, Advanced Sports Shooting, Gourmet and Pet Mode.
