INDULGE THE PHOTOGRAPHER IN YOU WITH THE NEW SONY CYBER-SHOT HX350by Rajshree Faria February 2, 2017
All of us have a photography enthusiast within us; it often comes out to capture a beautiful moment between a teary-eyed mother as she drops her daughter at school, or perhaps when a little child playfully skips over a jump rope. Some of us whip out our smartphones to capture the setting sun as we travel back home after a hectic work day, while some of us eagerly wait for the first morning rays of the sun to hit the trees for the perfect shot. Whatever the occasion, whatever the landscape, all of us wish to capture the glory or poignancy of a moment for posterity… and the new Sony offering, the Cyber-shot HX350 will help us do just that. More vividly, more effortlessly.
Let’s look at the specifications and features of the Sony Cyber-shot HX350. Sony’s latest camera comes with a 20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor which means that you can capture the birthday boy’s smile beautifully even as the lights are off and he’s cutting the birthday cake. Similarly, the Exmor R CMOS sensor helps to capture smear free shots, which means that if you are doing touristy things like taking pictures with monuments in broad daylight, the glare from the sun won’t affect your shot. The CMOS sensor along with the camera’s BIONZ X image processor ensures that you get the most natural images with the best colour composition.
If you are a wildlife photographer or simply love heading out at night with only the moonlight to guide your photo-escapades, then the Sony Cyber-shot HX350 can be your best bet. Its ISO range of 80-3200, which can be expanded to 12800 in multi-frame noise reduction mode along with the aperture of f/2.8-6.3 will help you capture the most amazing shots from even a distance in low light conditions.
The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T 50x optical zoom can also make you a good stalker, but that will be illegal so please, refrain!
The Sony Cyber-shot HX350 is equipped to take 10fps burst shooting and record videos of up to 1080p at 60fps. You can be assured of steady and sharp videos even in full HD, courtesy of Sony’s exclusive frame analysis technology. The 3” LCD screen sports a 921k dot resolution so you can view your shots with ease.
The connectivity features on the Sony Cyber-shot HX350 include a USB 2.0 port along with a micro-HDMI port for either transferring the contents or simply viewing them on TV. Unfortunately, the camera lacks Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC features. The camera has a conventional design with easy access controls like a full PASM panel, a custom button for quick settings, and a manual ring to adjust zoom and focus.
Available exclusively at Amazon India, the Sony Cyber shot camera price comes with a well-earned tag of Rs. 28,990. Go ahead, maybe start a new February resolution of indulging more of your passion for photography and who knows, maybe the Sony Cyber-shot HX350 will entice you to pursue photography for life!
