50x optical zoom plus 100x Clear Image Digital Zoom
Get amazingly close with 50x optical zoom plus 100x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.
Optical SteadyShot ® image stabilization
Optical SteadyShot ® image stabilization reduces shake and blur by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths. The HX300 uses a second lens group shift which moves the lens group farther away from the sensor. This results in an expanded compensation area, allowing for easier framing.
20.4 Megapixel Back-illuminated Exmor ® R CMOS Image Sensor
This camera features a 20.4 megapixel Exmor ® R CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera's Carl Zeiss ® Vario-Sonnar T* lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined Exmor ® R CMOS sensor and BIONZ ® image processor delivers extremely fast up to 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080p movie modes.
Full HD 1080/60p
