The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V is designed for people that need a travel sized digital camera but don’t want to lose any of the features. The DSC-HX9V comes with a 16.2 mega-pixel CMOS senosr and a 16x, 24-384mm zoom lens. Despite having a lens that is more powerful than most travel cameras, the Cyper-shot still easily fits into pockets thanks to a one inch thickness at its narrowest point. There is no viewfinder, so the rear of the camera has more room for the three inch LCD display for view-finding and picture playback.Some of the software features of the DSC-HX9V include an automatic scene analysis function which will select one of the 11 camera settings based on what the camera sees. Also included are facial recognition features which automatically focus on a subjects face and can be set to snap the shutter when it detects that the person is smiling. The Cyber-shot also takes 1080p picture quality video.
Bonus features include an intelligent sweep panorama shooting mode for easy creation of panoramic photos. All the user has to do to make a panoramic photo is to press and hold down the shutter button while moving the camera from left to right or top to bottom, and the camera will automatically process and create the panoramic image. The DSC-HX9V can also create 3D images for users that have a 3D TV and 3D glasses. The user needs to take two pictures from slightly different angles and the camera combines the images for 3D viewing.
