Sony Cyber-shot DSCHX7V/W

Gift Ideas For Dad, The Shutterbug

This $299 camera brings us into the upper echelon of point-and-shoots. All of the specifications are a notch above the previous class: 10x optical zoom, 16 megapixel sensor, and 1080i video recording (and HDMI output). Some reviewers have said that images from this camera have the look of DSLR photography. Sony says its camera takes two shots for every click of the shutter and combines them to create a “defocused” background like a DSLR would. Sony also adds in features like 3D image and panorama capability, HDR, and an integrated GPS receiver for location tracking. But functionally, one of the most impressive features of this camera is its speed: from powering on to sequential shots to burst mode, this one is among the most responsive.
