The new Sony HX1 Cyber-Shot ($500) looks like it has it all.
With a 9.1 megapixel Exmor CMOS image sensor at its heart, the HX1 features a pro-quality 28mm wide-angle lens with 20x optical zoom. In addition to being able to achieve burst speeds of 10 frames per second (read: 10 action photos in one second), the camera has new sweep panorama technology, which can help you take 224-degree panorama shots in one simple press-and-sweep motion. The HX1 also has 1080p HD video recording capabilities, recording at 30 frames per second using the MPEG4 AVC/H.264 format. Click pic for more.
