  • Conclusion: The HX1 presents a very attractive package to the potential buyer.

  • Conclusion: Sony wprowadził na rynek swój nowy model klasy superzoom. Można powiedzieć, że nie tylko zoom jest "super" – podobnie można określić też nową zastosowaną w tym aparacie technologię wykonywania zdjęć panoramicznych. A więc HX1 to superzoom z super panoramą.
