Sony has zoomed into focus, with two high-spec additions to its H series, as well as a fresh Cyber-shot to boost its collection of point and click snappers.

The H series welcomes the HX100V, which features a flare-resistant 30x optical zoom lens, and the HX9V, with a wide-angle 16x optical zoom lens.

Both cameras come with 16Mp sensors, capture 1080p HD video at 50f/s and have image stabilisation for a less shaky snap. They also boast several 3D options and the popular GPS functionality for geo-tagging photos.

Sony has also launched the Cyber-shot W520, a lightweight 14.1Mp camera with a 5x optical zoom.
