Sony Cyber-shot HX350 With 50X Optical Zoom Launched in India at Rs. 28,990
Sony last month launched the successor to the Cyber-shot HX300, the Cyber-shot HX350 a super-zoom camera. The company on Monday announced that the camera will be available in India priced at Rs. 28,990. To recall, the camera had been launched in Europe at EUR 449 (roughly Rs. 32,600).
As noted during the launch not much seems to have changed in the new Sony Cyber-shot HX350. The camera features a back-illuminated 20.4-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and an up-to-date BIONZ X image processor. The ISO range is rated at ISO 80-3200, which can be expanded to 12800 in multi-frame NR mode. A focal length of 24mm at the wide end and 1200mm at the telephoto end (35mm equivalent) can be achieved while the available aperture is f/2.8-6.3. This provides you with a 50x optical zoom, which makes it ideal for wildlife photography or for shooting distant objects.
The Sony Cyber-shot HX350 features handy features like a manual ring for smooth adjustment of zoom and focus, plus an easily-accessible mode dial and custom button for quick adjustment of settings. It also has full PASM controls. The camera is capable of 10fps burst shooting and can record video up to 1080p at 60fps. There's also a tiltable 3-inch LCD display with a 921k-dot resolution but sadly, it likes connectivity options like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or NFC on board.
It uses a USB 2.0 for interfacing with a PC for transferring content over and Micro-HDMI port for viewing the content you've shot directly on an HDTV. It doesn't have any microphone or headphone socket present.
In order to prevent camera shake, the Cyber-shot HX350 retains the optical SteadyShot feature which helps keep the video steady. The inbuilt Intelligent Active Mode keeps full-HD videos sharp and blur-free with Sony's proprietary frame analysis technology.
