    18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor

    The 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor captures ultra-high definition images that take full advantage of the camera?s sharp Sony G lens. The sensor enables advanced processing that reduces noise levels up to 6 times more than other sensors, resulting in stunning low light images with incredible details.

    High speed AF

    To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor R CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput to deliver high-quality image signals to the cameras BIONZ processor. The result is fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds, even in low light.

    Optical zoom plus Clear image zoom

    Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.

    Full HD 1080/60p

    Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60p in 1080 AVCHD video.? This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV.2 With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.

    Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with 3-way Active Mode

    Optical SteadyShot image stabilization reduces shake and blur by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths.

    WiFi sharing WiFi lets you quickly upload photos and videos directly to social media sites, back them up on a network-connected PC, or view them on a large screen TV. WiFi-enabled smartphones and tablets can also pull images from your camera and upload them to social media.

    GPS and Compass

    GPS and compass record location data and camera direction as you shoot movies and photos. GPS Log lets users track a photographic journey and later view the path and images on a map. Map View in ?PlayMemories Home? software, allows users to view images on a map showing where they were taken. The logged path and images can also be displayed on Google Earth.

    Capture the decisive moment with up to 10fps

    Capture full 18.2 megapixel resolution images at up to 10 frames per second, helping to ensure that the decisive moment is captured such as the soccer ball flying into the goal. In addition, a mechanical shutter helps reduce distortion when continuously shooting moving subjects.

    3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama mode

    Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities.3 Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way.

    Picture Effect

    Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select camera models have up to nine different effects.

    Photo Creativity

    Photo Creativity allows you to fine-tune your exposure settings, such as brightness, color, and vividness, and quickly choose the right enhancement for your subject. Now you can view Picture Effects and Photo Creativity effects in real time on the camera?s monitor or in the viewfinder before shooting.

    Background Defocus

    DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now our point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear

    Superior Auto mode

    Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using Backlight Correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology. Superior Auto intelligently detects 33 scenes for still images and 44 scenes for movies, making it easy to get the best shot.

    Face Detection technology

    Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.

    Smile Shutter technology

    Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.

    Anti-blink Function

    It?s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.

    Soft Skin mode

    Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot.

    Intelligent Scene Recognition Mode

    Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects 33 different types of scenes and selects the appropriate camera settings. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep.

    Natural Flash

    Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them.. Natural Flash controls the white balance of both the background and main subjects.

    Motion Detection

    Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces.

    Sweep Multi Angle mode

    In Sweep Multi Angle mode, the camera takes 15 images at different angles as it sweeps across the scene. By tilting the camera during playback, the camera?s Gyro Sensor detects motion and displays the image in a 3D-like view on the camera?s LCD.

    4 out of 5 stars   Awesome pictures! Slow record time.
    By Jackie (Tampa, FL) January 24, 2013
    Review submitted for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V 18.2 MP 20x Optical Zoom Wifi Ultrazoom Camera (SNDSCHX30V)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Super Nice Video, Beautiful pictures, Long Battery Life, Lots Of Setting Choices, High Zoom Very Clear, Quick startup time
    Cons: Want More Continuous Shot, Slow To Record To Sd
    Other Comments: I got this camera because I do a lot of photos and video of the gymnastics team that I coach. So far, it has not disappointed me! Quality is excellent, and of course all of my stuff is done with high motion and no flash! However, I have 2 complaints: My much cheaper Olympus Tough camera does low light "continuous shots" until I release the shutter button, allowing me to get numerous shots during one gymnastics routine. This Sony does not do that... it will only take up to 10 shots, but then takes at least 5-10 seconds to record them to the SD card before I can start shooting more. It's a little frustrating. My other complaint is the record time- I have a brand new Sony class 10 SD card in it, and it still takes a few seconds to record each picture. Also, you CAN snap still photos during video, but I had no idea that it would take about 10 seconds for each to record, so you can only snap one maybe ever 10 seconds. MAYBE I can try a lower quality video and improve that... will have to test it out. Overall, I would definitely recommend the camera to others! It's worth the image quality and has a quick startup time, so you never miss that initial shot!

    4 out of 5 stars   Good 2nd camera to carry in your pocket
    By Lorenzosee (Payson, AZ) December 18, 2012
    Review submitted for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V 18.2 MP 20x Optical Zoom Wifi Ultrazoom Camera (SNDSCHX30V)
    Pros: Good Flash Performance, Gps, Sharp pictures, 20X zoom lens, Fast Focus, Compact
    Cons: Pop Up Flash In Bad Place, No viewfinder
    Other Comments: It's hard to get use to the pop up flash right where I normally hold with left hand. I would have paid extra for a good user manual/guide. Haven't used the video, GPS or WiFi as yet. A little weather protection would have been nice. Like how fast the camera focuses and shoots. Overall I'm pleased with the camera and would probably buy again.

    Pros: Fast functional, Lots of features, Fits in pursepocket, Easy to use, Compact, Great lens
    Cons: A bit weighty
    Other Comments: I bought this camera for the long lens and the speed. I'm NOT disappointed in either. There are lots of manual settings, but the auto settings work extremely well. focus is fast, and good subject tracking. Love the anti-shake feature. Pop up flash is where I like one of my hands, but I'm learning to hold it just a bit differently and still be comfy. This is a perfect choice for someone who wants a pocket camera, but also wants some of the features and flexibility of a DSLR camera.

    Pros: Great zooming, Amazing compact size, Lots of options, Good quality burst photos, Great quality pictures
    Cons: Time writing burst photos
    Other Comments: Love how portable this camera is and the quality of the photos. It has an amazing zoom capability and the high speed burst mode has good quality photos. Have not used the Wifi option yet. Originally had purchased the Cannon SuperZoom camera (Powershot SX40) but it was too big to carry around easily. This one fits in your purse or pocket. Very happy with this purchase!
