Three bridge cameras, two compact cameras heading to United States

At the same time as launching the α6000, Sony has revealed a new collection of five cameras to add to its existing Cyber-shot range. The Cyber-shot HX400V, H400, and H300 are bridge cameras with high-magnification optical zooms, while the Cyber-shot WX350 and W800 are thin and compact point-and-shoot cameras, including one set to be sold for under $100.

The HX400V, H400, and H300 all offer DSLR-style casings and functionality. The HX400V houses a 20.4-megapixel CMOS sensor with a Bionz X image processor combined with an f/2.8-6.3, 24-1200mm OIS lens, giving it a 50x optical zoom or 100x with digital assistance, a peak ISO of 12,800, a 10fps burst, and 1080p video recording capabilities. A 201k-dot electronic viewfinder is joined by a tiltable 3-inch 921K-dot rear display, and its Wi-Fi and NFC allows it to be controlled via mobile apps. The HX400V will ship in March for $500.

Though offering a slightly lower-resolution 20.1-megapixel sensor compared to the HX400V, the H400 features a 63x optical zoom-equivalent with its f/3.4-6.5, 24.5-1543mm lens. It has an sensitivity range of up to ISO 3,200, can record 720p video, offers a three-inch rear display alongside an electronic viewfinder, and can take up to 300 still images on a single charge. Also going on sale in March, the H400 will be priced at $320.

The H300 has already been made available elsewhere, but is coming to the US as part of the collection in mid-February. It sports a similar 20.1-megapixel sensor as the H400, and has the same ISO and 720p video capabilities, though it houses an f/3-5.9, 25-975mm OIS lens, offering a 35x zoom. Running on four AA batteries, the H300 will cost $220.

The compact WX350 houses an 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and Bionz X processor matched with an f/3.5-6.5, 25-500mm OIS lens. It has a 10fps burst mode, an ISO range of 100-12800, 1080p video recording, and Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. Capable of offering 470 photographs on one charge, the WX350 will go on sale in March for $320.

Using a similar style as the WX350, the W800 is a more basic camera in comparison. It uses a 20.1-megapixel sensor without the Bionz X image processing used in its stable mate, though it still offers a 5x optical zoom, 720p video, a 2.7-inch rear display, and four picture effect modes. The Cyber-shot W800 will also be released in March, priced at $80.
