Big fea­tures in a com­pact pack­age

This minia­ture cam­era, weigh­ing just 242g, has not only a 24-720mm Zeiss zoom lens and great qual­ity aut­o­fo­cus but can also han­dle 4K video record­ing. Zoom can even ex­tend to 1440mm in Clear Image Zoom mode, main­tain­ing high res­o­lu­tion at a good dis­tance. There’s Sony’s in­no­va­tive Steadyshot gyro-sen­sors at work as well, mean­ing cam­era shake be­comes less of an is­sue - cru­cial if this is a back-pocket op­tion you travel with. The 4k videos - 18.2MP ef fec­tive - ac­tu­ally track 1.6 times as much in­for­ma­tion as nec­es­sary, mean­ing beau­ti­ful res­o­lu­tion, full pixel read­out and none of the noise. Priced at $899.
