Sony Announces HX5V/B Premium Point and Shoot

Today, Sony announced updates to their camcorder and camera line for CES 2010. For their premium point-and-shoot line, they announced the new HX5V/B with the help of professional photographer Nigel Barker. A particularly cool feature shown off was wireless sharing with other wireless capable cameras. Another feature shown was a panoramic shooting mode using the new EXMOR sensor that is backlit and helps with low light shooting. This will help with the relatively slow lens with a maximum aperture of F3.5

More info can be found on the specific link Sony’s Website. I’ll be trying to get my hands on a test item and it seems like a product that should fly off the shelves.
