Japanese technology giant Sony has a raft of extraordinary digital cameras on the market today that any enthusiastic photographer would be pleased to own. The following guide highlights just a few of these must-have devices.
Sony Alpha A7
Named one of the best cameras of 2013 by The Independent, the Sony Alpha A7 stands out on the market thanks to its sensor being the same size as a 35mm frame.
High-quality photos are also assured thanks to snaps being taken at 24MP resolution, while a BIONZ X processor boasts Detail Reproduction Technology and Diffraction Reduction to further enhance how good your images look.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50
What is there not to love about the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50? The camera boasts a 30x optical zoom, which can extend to 60x with the Clear Image Zoom function – ideal for capturing amazing scenes off in the distance – on top of both a powerful 20.4MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and the aforementioned BIONZ processor.
It can be argued that Sony PlayMemories is the best feature of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50 though. Working with the camera’s out-of-the-box Wi-Fi, the application means you can take a photo and have it on your Facebook profile in a matter of seconds. Sharing your surroundings has never been so easy.
As if that is not enough, Jessops is currently offering the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50 with a saving of £30 as part of its Sony digital cameras range, with this price including a one-year guarantee and free next day delivery.
Sony RX100 II
The Sony RX100 II is the camera perfect for photographers who hope to take stunning snaps in the most challenging of conditions. This is because a tilting screen ensures you can always see what you are taking a photo of without having to bend your body in awkward ways.
A one-inch, 20.2MP Exmor R sensor will have you capturing more detail with every shot too, with two quick-function buttons meaning you can take a picture of a spectacular scene in no time at all.
