Sony Cyber-shot DSC HX50 Camera, HD 1080p, 20.4MP, 30x Optical Zoom, Wi-Fi, 3” LCD Screen with 8GB Card, Black

Product information

Give every scene the detail it deserves with Sony’s HX50 digital compact camera. Currently the worlds smallest with a 30x optical zoom, it’s less than 4cm thick and boasts a powerful 20.4 megapixel sensor for high quality enlargements. Along with built-in image stabilisation, every shot will be professionally crisp and clear.

This camera comes with an 8GB memory card to get you shooting right out of the box.

Key benefits:

  • Normally seen in professional bridge cameras - the Exmor R CMOS 20.4 megapixel sensor gives you superb performance, even in low light. Along with the BIONZ processor razor sharp shots are only a button press away.
  • A 30x optical zoom gets you closer to the action that ever. Ideal for wildlife and sports shooting - the 24 - 720mm wide angle lens really comes into its own with super-detailed macro shots.
  • Thanks to the unique multi interface shoe you can add extras like a flash, EVF or microphone for shooting with a professional feel (attachments available separately).
  • You can capture crisp 1080p movies with the touch of a button in the popular AVCHD and MP4 formats. Perfect for editing and sharing.
  • Optical Steady Shot cuts down on shaky camera movement when shooting video, even while walking or zooming. It also cuts down on blur when shooting stills.
  • With built-in Wi-Fi backing up your shots and clips or even sharing them with family is easy. You can also use your phone as a remote shutter release via Wi-Fi. Perfect for when you need to get in shot or cut down on hand tremor.
  • Advanced face detection makes your subject the star of the show, while smile shutter makes sure that you capture that winning smile first time, every time.
  • Like artistic photo apps on your phone? You can get similar effects with the HX50 including toy camera, pop colour, partial colour, illustration and more.
  • A large and bright 3-inch LCD screen makes navigating your photos, reviewing shots and choosing settings a snap.

Good quality pocket sized camera I had been looking for a small camera that I could easily carry when out and about and would give me a point and shoot capability but also allow me to take control of settings if I chose to. This camera fits the bill, it is compact and produces excellent quality pictures. The 30x zoom is an excellent facility in such a small camera. The only drawback is the fact that the camera does not have an optical viewfinder as the viewing screen is virtually unusable in bright sunlight. With an 8GB SD card included the price of this camera represents good value for money. 29 July 2014
Idiot proof camera The Sony Cyber-shot camera recently purchased at John Lewis has proved to be one of my best purchases. The camera is easy to use and the finished shots are clear. I use it for wildlife shots and to keep a record of my work and it has proved invaluable for both of these uses. I still have much to learn as it has many features that I haven't used yet - but to date I love it! 13 July 2014
Excellent compact camera Excellent compact camera with great zoom , panoramic and movie facilities. 08 July 2014
Nice camera but spolit by one major problem A superb bit of kit. Multi function, nicely weighted for the hand, neat size, and good images captured more by luck than judgement. More by luck that judgement - yes - the camera is let down by the awful LCD screen that suffers from glare and reflections making it virtually unusable in direct sunlight or sunny surroundings. I have purchased and fitted an 'anti-glare' screen protector which helps a little but I remain most disappointed and would certainly not recommend this camera to anyone keen to take outdoor or scenic shots with any degree of accuracy. 05 June 2014
Excellent Value For Money Brilliant compact with great 30x zoom. Eliminates all shake especially at full zoom. Easy to use intuitive menus - intelligent auto or option to use manual adjustment. 03 June 2014
My New Camera Although still learning, this camera is easy to use, has a super zoom that takes very clear close up pictures, The movie is also clear and colour bright, I'm looking forward to using it on our annual holiday in July. 30 May 2014
Very disappointed I bought this camera as an upgrade to a Panasonic Lumix TZ30 also bought from JL. First impressions were good when the camera was used in bright conditions. However the application was for a family holiday to Euro Disney where the camera was often used indoors and for the video application and this is where the problems start. In video mode the camera is unable to focus in low light rendering it useless, the Lumix TZ30 although over 2 years old was brilliant. Again for indoor shots the built in flash is useless leaving the subject poorly lit and the background dim. You can get slightly better results by switching to manual and configuring the settings yourself. However this was bought as a point & shoot alternative to a full size camera. So the camera was relegated to the hotel safe and my trusted Fuji X-Pro 1 delivered stunning results as usual. I have today purchased a Panasonic TZ60 from JL and this appears to do the job although too late for our vacation. As usual the service from JL was superb but this Sony camera is useless, I would appreciate if someone from JL could help out with a refund? 30 May 2014
Great zoom in compct package The zoom on this camera is excellent especially when you consider the size of the body. Found it really easy to navigate around the instructions and settings. 21 March 2014
