For the 2011 line-up Sony has introduced the Cyber-shot HX9V which is also the most expensive amongst its siblings. Compared to the compact megazooms that Sony has to offer, the Cyber-shot HX9V is entirely new and it seems that Sony has decided to cramp in all of the company’s latest Cyber-shot technologies into this particular camera.
What you will find in the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V is the 16-megapixel Exmor R sensor, a 16x ultrawide-angle 24mm-equivalent Sony G lens, and a high speed linear focusing system. Like most of the cameras that you will find in the market today, the new DSC-HX9V also shoots full HD at 60p. Another new feature that you will find on this particular camera is a GPS receiver where you will be able to geo-tag your photos while you shoot.
It terms of shooting modes you can either choose the stripped down easy auto mode if you feel overwhelmed by the features that Sony has packed into this camera or if you are a seasoned pro, then go for the full manual mode. As mentioned so many features packed into this small body, sometimes it can get confusing when you want to access a particular mode, having said that, you will not be disappointed with your purchase once you get the hang of it.
