New Sony 16x to 20x superzooms: HX30v, HX20v, HX10v and H90

If you love superzooms, you are going to love this 4-pack of new Sony Cybershots, they are all superzooms in the 16x to 20x range! The HX30v, HX20v and HX10v have the new 18mp backlit CMOS sensor (hence the HX??v name), while the new Cybershot H90 carries the old naming scheme and a CCD sensor. The first two have 20x optical zoom lenses, the last two have 16x. GPS in all the HX-models and Wifi in the HX30v. Or something like that.

One of the four may be the new official camera of environmentalists, neo-hippies, and hipsters: according to the Sony Europe press release: "The new Cyber-shot HX20V is partially constructed using ‘SoRPlas’ (Sony Recycled Plastic), a flame-retardant polycarbonate plastic that contains 99% recycled materials. SoRPlas exhibits excellent strength plus world-leading heat resistance and durability."
