Sony Cyber-Shot HX50
Sony ups the ante with their 2013 mid-range zoom.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 6/21/2014

Sony's mid-range zoom models have a history of receiving high review scores and we don't expect the newest Cyber-Shot HX50 to be any different. Sony has upped the ante on megapixels with 20.4 while continuing to impress with the light sensitivity in their CMOS sensors. This model features a 30x optical zoom, manual controls, full HD video and wi-fi. The HX50 also comes with optical image stabilization, a must for longer zooms. And with an autofocus speed of .1 second and 10 fps burst mode, speed should be a plus for the HX50 too.
