Sony Cyber-shot HX20V

Sony has launched their near-flagship compact super-zoom Cyber-shot HX20V. The HX20V takes all the good stuff in its sibling, the Cyber-shot HX10V, and swaps out the lens for a more powerful 20X zoom model, improved movie frame sensor output and is made of Sony recycled plastic.

The Sony HX20V is only surpassed by its simultaneously-launched twin, the Sony Cyber-shot HX30V which is almost the same camera but with built-in WiFi.
