Default SONY HX5v

I think it will be one of the exiting cameras in 2010
Like an upgraded SONY HX1 in pocket size with
full 1080 video
sweep panorama with no more ghosting
GPS andd compass tagging
HDR
fantastic low light capabilities
10 picures in 1 second
and much more











Weights and Measurements
Dimensions: W x H x D: 102.9 x 57.7 x 28.9 mm = 4 1/8" x 2 3/8" x 1 3/16"
Weight with battery and Memory Stick media: 200 g = 7.1 oz.
Compare with the Panasonic TZ7 / ZS3
Dimensions 103 x 60 x 33 mm = 4.1" x 2.4" x 1.3"
Weight (inc. batteries) 229 g (8.1 oz)

want to know more?
as with the HX1 i started a blog to go into the depth of this interesting new camera

Costa-

Yes, I agree that the Sony HX-5 will be an interesting camera to follow through the first professional reviews. By the way your HX-1 site is shut down for a violation of blog terms of use.

Have a good weekend.

i am pretty excited about this camera as well. with another product cycle times worth of R&D on the exemor sensor, they could have something pretty great here. not to mention the other great features, 10x silent G lens, etc.

I think GPS (in camera) needs some minutes to find satellites.
It's better to use an extern GPS data logger, which saves coordinates each second.
battery lasts for 24 hours, saved are 200.000 / 400.000 or 600.000 points, which automatically are added to EXIF of pictures.

extern GPS data loggers are usable for EACH camera!

my two data loggers, each ~ 50 €

DonalDuc-

As I replied to you on another Forum, I like your approach better than burdening the camera with finding the GPS satellites.

It takes some mouse-clicks to import GPS data to EXIFs - and satellites are always "online" :-) using GPS data logger.

If you switch off GPS-camera - satellites are oooofffff ...

Both data loggers are chargeable with miniUSB - blumax uses "regular" changeable cheap LiION battery, both have BlueTooth.

http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...All-Categories

20-65 satellites

u GPS Receiver for DSC(Digital Camera)
u Records travel information (location/time stamp)
u Provide a Photo Album Software on PC that render photo, location information, map,
& satellite image together into a composite view(Locr PC Client SW)
u 64MB memory for storing up to 650,000 points
u Log duration: Over 180 days (For log interval 15 sec and log 12
hours for a days)
u Bluetooth GPS receiver
u Show record data on Google Map or Google Earth

Flash Type
64Mb Serial Flash
Log data
Date, UTC Time, Longitude, Latitude, Altitude, Velocity
Log Interval
5secs ~ 60secs, user configurable (Default 15secs)
Records
1: greater than 650,000
2: greater than 500,000
3: greater than 400,000


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

with microSD ... 2 GB = 134.000.000 points :-) 55g with battery, lasts ~ 28h, intern memory ~ 260.000 points

Costa/Chupame-

You wrote about the early WX-1 lens alignment problem. I am beginning to see recent WX-1 photos that look as if Sony has created some sort of "fix." I say that because the recent photos look much sharper and more normalized.

What reports are you seeing?
