Sony has announced its "most stable 50x Optical Zoom CMOS" digicam. The new Cyber-shot DSC-HX400 boasts a 20.4-megapixel CMOS image sensor mated to a BIONZ X image processing engine and a 50x Carl Zeiss Optical Zoom lens. This DSLR-styled point-and-shoot includes Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for blur-free image capture, speedy 10 fps Burst Shooting, easy-for-beginners iAuto / Superior Auto, Full 1080p HD Video Recording, and "4K" still image output via the camera's built-in Micro HDMI connection. It even has an ISO range of 100-12800 for noise-free images in less than ideal lighting conditions.

The HX400 also features GPS, for geo-tagging all your pictures and mapping your adventures, as well as Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communications) technologies to connect the camera to smartphones or tablets. Once paired, it's pretty easy to share videos and photos via email or your favorite social networking sites. Finally, the HX400 has 8-person Face Detection, a 360 Sweep Panorama mode, and a multi-interface "shoe" to connect and power optional accessories like external flashes and microphones.
