Detailed product description

SONY Cyber-shot DSC-HX50 – The smallest camera with 30x optical zoom capability

Big things come in small packages

For round-the-world expeditions to a round-the-forest Sunday stroll, give every scene the detail it deserves, with the smallest digital camera with a 30x zoom. With a 20.4MP sensor and built-in stabilisation you’ll get vibrant photos from a camera that’s truly pocket-sized.

Get a closer view with 30x optical zoom

How close can a 30x optical zoom take you? Find out and see it all with a G Lens from Sony and optical image stabilisation – delivering highly detailed pictures at great distances.

Focus faster

It takes just 0.1 seconds to lock on focus in daylight conditions. That’s twice as fast as the average human can react. With high speed autofocus in less than half a second you can capture the shot of a lifetime.

Embrace detail with a 20.4MP sensor

Waited your whole life to see the sunrise in the east? Take a photo with the detail, colour and life that captures exactly how it felt. Zoom right in without sacrificing any of the detail with a 20.4MP Exmor R™ CMOS sensor and powerful BIONZ processor.

Go pro with a Multi Interface Shoe

It might be pocket-sized, but it’s got professional performance and features. It has a Multi Interface Shoe that you can add a flash, electronic viewfinder or microphone too. And a new long-life battery will keep you flashing, recording and shooting all day long.

Shoot fast and share it all

When the moment comes fast, you won’t miss it. With high speed autofocus and built-in stabilisation from Optical SteadyShot, you get sharp, blur-free photos (and stable HD movies) every time. When you’re done, use built-in Wi-Fi to share your shots with friends and family.

Fine-tune shots with handy controls

Looking for a camera that puts you in control? There are manual control and exposure value dials on top where you can select aperture or shutter priority and change exposure values manually. Or for fast shots, you can let the camera choose the best settings.
