A 45 second unmodified handheld HD video taken with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1, using its 1080 Fine mode. The camera was using its default settings including Image Stabilisation set to continuous.

The HX1 has a 20x optical zoom range equivalent to 28-560mm and you'll see a demonstration of this during the clip. The clip starts and ends with the camera fully-zoomed out.

Feel free to download the original MP4 clip and check out the quality on your own computer!

This video is part of my HX1 review at cameralabs.com/reviews/Sony_Cyber-shot_DSC-HX1/
