CES 2010: Sony introduces digital cameras with AVCHD 1080p video recording Sony has unveiled two new digital cameras at CES this week, both of which will record Full HD 1080p video in the AVCHD format.
The DSC-HX5V and DSC-TX7 have 10MP sensors, include Backlight Correction High Dynamic Range (HDR), and include TransferJet wireless technology. The HX5V also includes GSP + Compass for automatic geo-tagging of photos by location. Both have an HDMI output for easy connection to HDTVs.

The HX has a 3-inch LCD and 10x optical zoom and the TX has a 3.5-inch touchscreen display and a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 4x optical wide angle lens.

Both cameras can accept SDHC memory cards, or Sony's own proprietary Memory Stick, although the latter is much more expensive.

The HX will cost you $350 when it ships in March and the TX will knock you back $400 when it launches next month.

hmm, i looked at the sony site, and it seems to indicate that AVCHD recording and HDMI output are only 1080i.

It can also record 1080, 29.97p anamorphic (1440 x 1080) as "MP4". That's better than bad i guess. looks like the hx5v has a decent lens, too.

I wonder why the other one costs more...?
