As much as I like the Sony Cyber-shot HX1 it is rather past its sell by date and I have actually been rather puzzled by Sony’s lack of action on the big zoom scrum. The HX1 set the bar high back in its day. It was the first Cyber-shot to use an Exmor CMOS sensor, 1080 HD Video and Sweep Pano mode. Now its been surpased by all its smaller zoom siblings. We will have to wait for an official announcement but it seems logical enough. See the full story at the link below.
