European Compact Camera – Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50/HX50V
Following the tradition of this category’s winner from the 2012-2013 EISA awards, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20, the HX50 is the world’s smallest compact camera with a 30x zoom lens – stretching the limits of the compact zoom segment even more. Equipped with a Sony G-class lens, the DSC-HX50 offers a great balance of worry-free point-and-shoot photography and high-level manual control and customisation. The HX50V also includes GPS to record the exact location where a picture was taken. Other features, like the 20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor, the highly effective optical stabilisation, the 1080p AVCHD video and the dedicated exposure compensation dial, will be very much appreciated by photographers of all levels.
