I've been looking at this camera for a while but the £249.99 price tag at jessops was a bit out of my price range. This is the cheapest i can find it by far. Hope others benefit from it too. Awesome spec and great additional features like panoramic sweep and hd video.
The HX5 offers a range of professional imaging technology in a compact, lightweight design. If travel's on the agenda the HX5 is the camera to pack. Not only does it come with built-in iSweep Panorama for breathtaking, ultra-wide pictures, it also uses GPS and Compass technology to geotag shots so you can see exactly where you took your photos and even which direction you were facing. Switch to movie mode and you've got a mini-camcorder in your hand, ready to capture footage in 1080i HD. The 35mm equivalent Sony G lens with 10x optical zoom brings far-away subjects up close, and 25mm wide angle will fit more into your pictures. The HX5 also enables you to freeze high-speed action, with a shooting speed of up to 10 frames per second. As an added extra, the HX5 has 45MB of internal memory and slots for both Memory Stick PRO Duo™ and SD/SDHC cards.
