All of that in a point-and-shoot body

Sony’s not afraid to release powerful point-and-shoot cameras at a time where point-and-shoots are virtually extinct. Their latest pocket snapper, the HX80 might be on the small side but don’t count this pint-sized shooter out – it has features that some DSLRs only dream of having.
