Sony Cyber-shot HX100V and HX9V Official

A few days ago we posted word that Sony had two news Cyber-shots up their sleeves waiting for release, Now its official, the HX100v (replaces the long serving HX1) and the HX9V which will sit above our trusty HX5v or rather its replacement the HX7v that was announced at CES a few weeks back. A quick break down of the specs.

DSC-HX100v

16.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor (backlit CMOS in other words) with a 3 inch 921k LCD screen. 30x optical Carl Zeiss zoom (interesting that it is not a G series as found on the HX1) which gives a range from 27-810mm. As with many of the new Sony Cybershots this camera shoots 3D images and also has a GPS plus AVCHD video

DSC-HX9v

All in all this camera has many of the same features, in fact the only major fact that sets them apart is that the HX9v is the 16x Optical Zoom (G-series lens here) which makes the camera pocket size almost.

Cannot wait to get our hands on these for review.
