Photos and specs of the Sony HX60V and Sony HX400V cameras have been leaked on the web before their launch event on February 12.
After revealing a bunch of Sony A6000 specifications, inside sources have managed to get a hold of the details regarding the company’s upcoming compact cameras. Moreover, their photos have been leaked, too, leaving us with little to find out before the February 12 event.
Sony HX60V, Sony HX400V, Sony WX350, Sony W810, and Sony WX220 will all become official in just a few days. Out of this succession, the first two are the most exciting, replacing the HX50V and HX300V, respectively.
Sony HX60V to feature built-in WiFi and GPS as well as 30x optical zoom lens
Sony DSC-HX60V is a compact camera with a 20.4-megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor. It will feature a 30x optical zoom lens that will provide a 35mm equivalent of 24-720mm.
Its maximum aperture will range between f/3.3 and f/6.3, therefore it will depend on the selected focal length.
Another important aspect of this shooter is the fact that it comes packed with built-in WiFi and GPS. The former allows users to transfer data to a smartphone or tablet, while the latter is perfect for geo-tagging photos.
Sony HX400V bridge camera will have to offer a Zeiss 50x optical zoom lens
Sony DSC-HX400V is a bridge camera. It will be based on a SLR-like design, but will sport the same 20.4-megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor as the aforementioned HX60V.
The lens will be a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* model, therefore it should provide superior optical quality. A total of 50x optical zoom will be available for photographers, supplying a 35mm equivalent of 24-1200mm.
Its maximum aperture will be f/2.8-6.3, depending on the focal length. The HX400V will feature WiFi, although it is unclear whether or not GPS functionality will be available.
What is certain is that both the HX400V and HX60V will be powered by a quick image processor coupled with a fast autofocus system.
Sony WX350, WX220, and W810 shed some size and “x” units compared to siblings
On the other hand, we can find the specs and photos of the Sony DSC-WX350, Sony DSC-WX220, and Sony DSC-W810. The first two compact cameras will feature an 18.2-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and the last one will feature a 20.1-megapixel CCD sensor.
The WX350 will sport a 20x optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent of 25-500mm and a maximum aperture of f/3.5-6.5.
The WX220 will be packing a 10x optical zoom lens that provides a 35mm focal length equivalent between 25 and 250mm. Its maximum aperture will stand between f/3.3 and f/5.9.
Last but not least, the W810 will offer a 25-156mm lens (35mm equivalent). This accounts for only 6x optical zoom, while the maximum aperture is set at f/3.5-6.5.
All these three models come with built-in flash and autofocus assist light. Their launch will occur on February 12, as stated above, so stay tuned to grab all the details.
