If you are in the market for a nice compact camera you may want to hold out for a little while. Sony just announced the new Cyber-Shot DSC-HX50V compact super zoom camera that boast 30x optical zoom while weighing in at only 9.6 oz.
Personally I am fine with carrying my DSLR around and have no need for a compact camera. That said, this seems to be a really nice little camera that I could see being perfect for family trips or vacations where a DSLR would be more trouble than its worth. This new Sony camera is expected to come in around $450 and should be available in May.
