Sony DSC-HX5 announcement clippings

With twice the sensitivity of conventional sensors, the advanced Exmor R CMOS Sensor assures beautifully detailed, low-noise images, even when you're shooting in low light. It's a perfect complement for the premium G Lens by Sony with powerful 10x optical zoom. Covering a generous 25-250mm range (35mm equivalent) within a compact body, the high-zoom lens is ideal for any shooting situation from wide-angle landscapes and group shots to dramatic close-ups.
The HX5 is the world's first camera that integrates GPS and Compass functions to enhance your enjoyment of travel photography. Your location is displayed in real time on the large 3.0 inch Clear Photo LCD screen as you're shooting. When you're back home, see where geotagged images and video clips were shot as on-line maps with supplied Picture Motion Browser PC software. A new Compass function shows which direction you were pointing when the picture was taken.
