Big zoom, compact size

The impressive 30x Optical Zoom and new-generation BIONZ X image processing engine in this compact model let you capture the detail of any scene. Optical SteadyShot, featuring Intelligent Active mode, helps you shoot blur-free stills and videos on the move - and built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity gives you one-touch image transfers to mobile devices. And, for even more functionality, you can download apps from the PlayMemories Camera Apps service.

Sharp detail near or far with 30x premium Optical Zoom

The pocket-sized body houses a 30x Optical Zoom Sony G Lens with a focal-length range from wide-angle 24mm to 720mm telephoto. Perfect for close objects to long shots and everything in between. Plus, Optical SteadyShot detects even the slightest movements and swiftly compensates to maintain a crystal-clear resolution - even when you zoom in close or take snaps in low-light conditions. And the Intelligent Active Mode cleverly analyses backward and forward frames to correct any camera shake blur for exceptionally smooth footage.

BIONZ X infuses vibrant realism into every frame

BIONZ X infuses vibrant realism into every frame The BIONZ X image processing engine - three times the speed of the previous BIONZ - provides high image resolution and faithful texture depiction in both stills and Full High Definition videos. Detail reproduction technology minimises emphasised outlines to produce more natural-looking images and finer details, while intelligent noise reduction increases clarity - even when it's twilight or dark. At the same time, diffraction-reducing technology corrects blurring for more finely detailed images - even during deep focus shooting.

Enjoy high-resolution, life-like images with a 20.4 megapixel sensor

Now you can take richer, more realistic pictures. The back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers high 20.4 effective megapixel resolution and lowers noise for a smoother shot. Capture that beautiful sunset, family celebration or awesome gig - just as you experience it.

Shoot, share and get creative

You can quickly and easily share new photos and movies on your favourite social media sites or by email,with your mobile devices via built-in Wi-Fi and One-touch NFC function. Plus, you can add even more functionality by downloading apps from the PlayMemories Camera Apps service, such as Time-lapse, Photo Retouch, Portrait Lighting, sync to smartphone - and more.

Take your photos further

The Multi Interface Shoe and Multi Terminal allow you to use an even greater range of compatible accessories, such as a flash unit, a viewfinder or a microphone - to enhance your shooting experience.

I was looking for a pocketable zoom camera. My shortlist was the Nikon S9700, Sony HX60, Panasonic TZ60. I tried these out at the local JL store and the Sony won. First, it is easy to hold the Sony camera in one hand and shoot the photo. I'm 74 with average-sized hands. The other cameras were less easy to hold one-handed. Second, and this may not be the best test of the cameras, I took photos at both ends, wide and zoom, of the lens in the store. The test piece was a sign at the far end of the story, white lettering on a mid-blue background. The photos taken with the Panasonic and the Nikon on long zoom came out quite dull and looked nothing like what I could see in the distance with my eyes. The Sony rendered far better what I could see with the naked eye. This may have something to do with the quality of the Sony screen, but I don't think so. At the wide end of the lens, the Sony colours were truer to what I could see, although the Panasonic was not far behind. Third, I was attracted to the Panasonic by its having a viewfinder. Forget it. It's next to useless. Fourth, the Sony would make a good camera for those who require one for street photography. It is unobtrusive in the hand, it comes with a wrist-strap and it costs a lot less than the cameras, like the Ricoh GR 16MP and Nikon Coolpix A, which have been suggested as ideal for that purpose. I have a small Ricoh GX100, now a bit long in the tooth, a Nikon P7700, and a Nikon D90. I am an enthusiastic amateur with about 50 years experience of photography. Incidentally, I bought the Sony DSC-HX60 in the JL store, there being no real price difference between there and Amazon

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I wrote this review having spent time with Canon’s SX700 and a Sony HX60; both are 2014 model travel super zooms. Both are broadly the same size and weight; when it comes to taking images both have 30x optical zoom lenses - though the Canon’s is 25-750mm and the sony going from a slightly wider 24 - 720mm. I have used the two cameras around the UK and on a short trip to Germany.

In the Hand

Out of the box the Sony looks and feels that little bit boxy and maybe a bit more nerdy; Sony have managed to put the mode dial on the top of the camera; and next to it there is an exposure compensation dial. The button layout has allowed a cleaner back to the camera and the Sony feels far nicer in my hands. Sony has a flash hotshoe that can take a range of sony accessories; including microphones and viewfinders - though most of them cost almost as much as the camera. The zoom of the Canon is noticeably quicker in stills mode than the Sony; and the canon has a useful framing button that quickly zooms out showing you a box where the zoom will return to. In video mode both the sony and canon have smooth zoom that won’t make your audience feel too queasy.


Inexplicably Sony’s mode dial has two different Intelligent auto modes; as well as scene and varying degrees of manual control. The software in Sony’s cameras continues to push them above their Canon competition for taking photos - the HX60 is able to take a single burst of 10 shots in a second; has a superior low light multi shot mode but for me the Sweep panorama mode is the stand out feature. If the HX60 is a camera to take on holiday being able to take impressive panoramic shots in a single pass should be a must have.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This what I describe as a Goldilocks camera. Not too big, not too small: Just right. It's light, but not too light. It's solid, but not a brick. And I love it!

Normally I'd mention the zoom later in the review but I have to mention it here. (Because I love it). It's simply the BEST zoom that I've ever used. So from great distances you can get detailed, clear, superb photographs. It's 30x optical zoom (that's a lot).
Strictly for the purposes of the review I conducted an experiment. I was at a poolside and was able to zoom across the rather large pool and take detailed pictures of other poolside occupants. (My wife didn't appreciate that this was solely for the purpose of review.)

I could reel off a list of features, but the ones I particularly liked were the NFC and Wifi features.
If you've not come across this feature before you'll love it. It allows you to operate the camera remotely using your smartphone. (in my case an iphone) If you've not got a smartphone, it's 2014 and time to throw away your pagers. I was also able to transfer from the camera to the phone the pictures I'd taken. this allows super duper photos to be uploaded to the likes of facebook.

There is only one word for the image quality. Awesome.
I was stunned by the crispness and the colour of the photographs.

Within picking the camera up and clicking. It's simply seconds. The camera is ready for the next picture almost straight away.

A very beautiful, compact camera that takes breath-taking photos. I LOVE IT!
