Good morning Vietnam, it’s your first day in the jewel of Southeast Asia, and it’s time to start snapping. Heading down the river you know you have to stay in the boat, but you’re eager to get a better view. The HX50 is the smallest camera with a 30x optical zoom capability*. How close can a 30x zoom take you? There’s only one way to find out.
What was that moving in the trees? Think fast before it’s too late. With high speed autofocus and built-in stabilisation from Optical SteadyShot you get a once-in-a-lifetime shot of a climbing tiger in a sharp, blur-free photo.
Capture light and detail with a 20.4MP sensor
Add a microphone and other accessories to the Multi Interface Shoe
The smells hit you as you wander through the market early in the morning - fragrant spices, herbs and flowers mixed together. Nothing in the world smells like it. You can’t take it with you, but you can capture those fleeting sensations in a shot with detail, colour and beauty. A G Lens from Sony, 20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and powerful BIONZ processor do justice to the scene.
When you first got out to Vietnam, you just wanted to take great pictures. Now you’re starting to fine-tune your shots with the manual control and exposure value dials on top of the HX50. And the Multi Interface Shoe has come in handy for adding a flash and microphone.
On the plane home you’re looking forward to telling everyone about everything you’ve seen. But why wait? You use built-in Wi-Fi to send a selection of your best shots to your smartphone, upload to Facebook and they’re already getting a lot of likes. The holiday is over now but at least the memories and pictures will be with you for the rest of your days.
Get a Closer View with 30x Optical Zoom
Zoom right in and capture every detail. The HX50 has 30x optical zoom capability and a G Lens from Sony and optical image stabilisation, so when you’re zooming in from an unstable platform (like a boat), even at 30x you get highly detailed, sharp, steady pictures.

Embrace Detail with a 20.4MP Sensor
Waited your whole life to see the sunrise in the East? Take a photo with the detail, colour and life that captures exactly how it felt. Zoom right in without sacrificing any of the detail with a 20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and powerful BIONZ processor.
Go Pro with a Multi Interface Shoe
It might be pocket-sized, but the HX50 has professional performance and features. It has a Multi Interface Shoe that you can add a flash, electronic viewfinder or microphone too. And a new long-life battery will keep you flashing, recording and shooting all day long.
Shoot Fast and Share It All
When the moment comes fast, you won’t miss it. With high speed autofocus you get sharp, blur-free photos (and Full HD movies) every time. When you’re done, there’s no need to wait until you get back to your computer to send out your photos. As soon as you’ve hit the shutter, you can use built-in Wi-Fi to share your best shots with friends and family.
You’re in Charge with an Exposure Control Dial
Looking for a camera that puts you in control? There are manual control and exposure value dials on top where you can select aperture or shutter priority and change exposure values manually. Or for fast shots, you can let the camera choose the best settings.
