Sony HX100V and HX9V Cameras: Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

The thing I missed most when I went from a point-and-shoot to my DSLR was the huge 12x zoom that my point and shoot had. Sure, I could buy a larger zoom lens for my DSLR, but those things are expensive. Heck, my point and shoot cost less than the lens for the DSLR. If you are shopping for a new digital camera that has tons of zoom, Sony has a couple new cams just for you.

The new cameras are the HX100V and the HX9V. Both of the cameras have the same basic features with 1080p video recording, 16.2MP resolution, and a big 3-inch LCD on the rear. The cameras are also packed with a lot of automatic features, and can shoot 3MP still shots while recording 1080p video.

The big difference is the zoom levels. The HX100V has 30x optical zoom and the HX9V has 16x optical zoom. The other difference is price; the HX100V will go for $450(USD) and the HX9V will for $350 when they hit stores this month.
