<ol><li> 1. Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V 16.2 MP Digital Still CameraWhen you first look at Sonys DSC-HX9V you think of it is little more than another of the point-and-shootwrist-strap cameras that are great to take on trips where you want to take photos of the family at theGrand Canyon. Looks can be deceiving though as the DSC-HX9V is much more than just a standard point-and-shoot camera. The first giveaway is the lens. Sony has chosen to use its upscale G-series zoom lensas the standard for this camera, combining the lens and a 16X zoom with an auto gyro internalstabilization package that means you can take some fine hand-held shots at full zoom with no blur. Thegyro keeps things stead for you. At the same time, the DSC-HX9V is fully capable of delivering nativemode 1080p high-definition video so that you can not only shoot stills but when you want to take makesome real video graphy - and you have a 32 GB memory card installed - you have the ability to do so.The number of built-in automatic scene modes that will be automatically chosen for you, depending onlighting, shadows, cloud, backlighting and other factors is 44 for still and 33 for is a website witch gives all information about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC.That Sony can do this and still deliver a wide range of fine color as well as deep blacks and good contrastis a function of the advanced Exmor R image processor that Sony places in the right spot for full videofunctionality. The real giveaway though, that the DSC-HX9V, aside from its 16.2 MP capability, is the factthat the engine which drives this point-and-shoot camera is the advanced BIONZ processor that Sonyuses in its advanced video systems. The BIONZ engine, when used with the Exmor, handles toughbacklighting situations easily and, if there is a situation where a little more light is needed in a standardsunlit series, you will find that the built-in flash will provide just the right amount of fill flash so that skintones are natural. Thats quite a range, however, if you know how to handle the camera there is usuallya setting that will let you set things to your own liking. One thing we liked - and like better the more weuse - is the 921,000 pixel resolution three-inch framing display in the rear. With this, you can quicklyframe the exact still or video you want and shoot away.This camera also features a built-in smile function that actually delivers multiple images to the processorthat give you the one where your subject smiles and if are worried about blinking, this camera uses asoft-snap where it takes two images without the subject realizing the second image has occurred - thatsusually the one without the blink. Sony has certainly done its homework on this camera and this is onethat can be used by pros, who dont want to carry all of that hardware with them - unless they areshooting specialized sporting events like tennis or auto racing where you need long lenses and digitalsingle lens reflex camera - but who want to be able to capture panoramic stills or a special angle in abike race or road race where blur may be an issue. With this camera, the blur is dialed out, so you donthave to drag all of that heavy gear with you. The one thing wed like to ask is why these are really stillcalled "point-and-shoot?" Usually, you are using a three-inch framing display in the rear to get the shotyou want so, in a sense, this might be a DSLR without all of the extra stuff. Its really not a "point-and-shoot" is it, is a website witch gives all information about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC.</li></ol>
