Sony CyberShot DSC-HX1?

Sony is expected to reveal a new, high-feature digital camera at next week's PMA 2009 show, the CyberShot DSC-HX1, says a Thursday report. While Sony is keeping mum, the Internet is rife with rumors of the flagship shooter, which is expected to be capable of recording video in 1080p high-definition just like Nikon's and Canon's latest digital SLRs along with higher-quality sound. There is also said to be a 9-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 20X zoom and a 10fps burst mode with a buffer of 100, although it's not known whether this is at full resolution.

The HX1 is also touted to have either a 2.7-inch LCD or even a 3-inch display borrowed from the company's DSC-H50. Optical image stabilization is also expected to be part of the specs. Some sources also claim the HX1 will have a new panoramic shooting mode.

Sony's recently introduced H20 (pictured) is already capable of shooting 720p HD video, providing incidental evidence to the rumor.

Pricing is expected to be the equivalent of $571 in European markets, although US pricing is expected to be somewhat lower, at somewhere between $400 and $500. No release dates are known, though this and other information is expected to be available at the PMA expo next week.

    ...it won't compete with the Nikon D90x or the Canon 5D Mk II unless it has an interchangeable lens mount. Otherwise it's competing more closely with the likes of the Panasonic LX-3. Story ends...
