The Sony H55

Released in February 2010, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55 is a compact super zoom, or, if you prefer, travel zoom, with a 10x optical range, 14 Megapixel CCD sensor and 3 inch LCD display. It shares the same body shape, lens and some features of the higher-end Cyber-shot DSC-HX5, with the major difference being that in place of the HX5's 10 Megapixel Exmor-R backlit CMOS sensor, the H55 has a 14 Megapixel CCD sensor.

Though it lacks many of the headline features of its more advanced, more expensive sibling, the HX5, it's nonetheless a feature-rich compact with a 14 Megapixel sensor, Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation, 720p HD video and the ability to zoom during video recording. It has a wealth of consumer friendly features including several auto exposure modes, scene recognition, face detection and smile shutter as well as full manual exposure control and other features like selectable AF and metering modes to appeal to the more advanced photographer."
