Rumor: Sony CyberShot DSC-HX1 coming with 20x zoom and 1080p video recording

dschx1 We’ve been hit with numerous camera rumors this week (Nikon & Canon), primarily ’cause the photography gear show PMA starts next week, and now Sony is joining the rumor mill party. The CyberShot DSC-HX1 sounds like it will make at least a small splash at the show too, with a 1080p video recording mode and a massive 20x optical zoom at a pocket cam price point.

The DSC-HX1 – that’s what we hear it will be called – should look similar to the H50 digicam just with a few extra ‘lumps.’ The source also claims that it will be packing a 3-inch LCD, along with optical SteadyShot, and a 9MP CMOS sensor. We hear that the price is set at 400 pounds but expect the US price to ring in around $400 as well. More to come next week for sure.
