Best Compact Camera: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V

The Sony Cyber-shot HX5V is the world's first camera that integrates GPS and Compass functions, as well as Sony's unique Sweep Panorama function. It features a 25-250mm (equivalent) lens and a 10.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor. The built-in HDR (High Dynamic Range) Backlight Correction produces natural, balanced results with high contrast and strongly backlit scenes. The Optical SteadyShot with new Active Mode provides up to 10x more shake correction than conventional cameras.
