Cyber-shot™ H55: Compact, stylish high-zoom with smart features
February 17, 2010: Also available this Spring, the new Cyber-shot™ H55 offers superb optical performance in a compact, elegantly styled body that’s great for travel or everyday shooting.
Assuring detailed, low-noise images, the 14.1 effective megapixel sensor is teamed with a high performance G Lens. Unique to Sony, this premium lens offers a powerful 10x optical zoom range to handle virtually any shooting situation – from wide angle landscapes and group shots to dramatic close-ups.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation is enhanced with Active Mode that now offers up to 10x more shake correction while you’re shooting HD video. You’ll enjoy the clearest, steadiest handheld clips yet – even while you’re walking along.
Other features include Sweep Panorama, 720p HD movie recording, Face Detection/Smile Shutter and Intelligent Auto mode for fuss-free shooting in any situation.
Like all models in the 2010 Cyber-shot™ line-up, the TX5 and H55 give you the freedom to select Memory Stick™ PRO Duo, Memory Stick™ PRO-HG, SD or SDHC memory cards to suit your personal preference. Both new cameras are also compatible with a wide range of official Cyber-shot™ accessories by Sony.
A generous range of accessories for the TX5 includes the LCS-THQ – a soft, fashionable case in a choice of colours that uses water repellent materials to dry the camera while carrying it. There’s also the STP-FSA floating strap that safeguards against losing the camera while you’re in the water.
The new Cyber-shot™ DSC-TX5 and DSC-H55 compact digital still cameras are available from end March 2010.
