If Sony's new A6300 mirrorless camera is more than you need, you might be interested in the company's latest point-and-shoot. Today, Sony revealed the HX80, a compact shooter with a 30x optical zoom lens and a built-in, retractable OLED electronic viewfinder. Featuring similar looks as its RX100 relative, it also comes with a 18.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, 5-axis image stabilization, 1080p video recording and a 3-inch (921,000-dot) LCD screen. There's WiFi and NFC too, for transferring media to iOS and Android devices via the PlayMemories app.

The HX80 will be available next month for $350, which isn't a bad price considering the overall package it offers.
