$399.00 Released July, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:10MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor. 10.7x optical zoom (28-300mm equivalent). Records video in 720p high definition.

The Cons:Annoying for CX4 buyers - comes only 6 months after the launch of the previous generation camera. Long lens limits the aperture size - F/3.5-5.6, poorer for low light shooting, difficult to isolate a subject.
