Excerpt: This Sony is without a doubt the best camera I have ever owned and I have owned many. I have recently taken it on a trip to San Francisco and it produced amazing crystal clear pictures. It has incredible features that are so much fun to mess around with. I am so glad that I decided to get this camera because it made picture taking so much easier. This camera has one of the best zooms I have ever seen. The battery lasts forever and it holds thousands of pictures.
Excerpt: This camera is one of the best that sony has made (out of all of its ultra zoom cameras). The camera has amazing ultrazoom capabilities, not to mention the best panorama mode I have ever seen! The fact that it can shoot 10 clear pictures per second is amazing I highly recommend that you buy this camera. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Excerpt: This camera is excellent. Its an all weather model and works great outdoors. The quality of the images is perfect. Importing the images from the camera to the computer or other devices can be done on a touch of a button.
Excerpt: With my old digital camera either the battery was going dead after 10 min or the card was filled up and when that perfect shot was calling out I couldn't take it. For my birthday my cats and husband bought me a Sony DSC-HX1 digital camera and I so love it and having a blast. This Digital camera is a 9.1 mega pixels/CMSO Sensor, 20X optical zoom, HD movie. I think this puppy could make coffee if it wanted to it does so much. It has a face/smile detection..
Excerpt: The Sony - Cybershot HX1 Digital Camera is the best camera I have ever owned. I have owned Canon cameras and Kodak cameras and this surpasses those by far. My husband bought this for me as a gift and I'm so glad he did. I probably never would have payed this much for a camera on my own, but it's worth it. I have 3 small children and I love this camera because it catches so much, so quickly. I can take tons of shots in no time so I have so many to choose from.
Excerpt: This camera is real top quality product. I got this camera in 2008 and it still takes care of everything that I want out of a camera. I am a picture addicted person who can take so many pictures at one function that some people call me crazy. So out of the 10's of thousands of pictures I have taken with this camera I have never really had a day where I do not like this camera.
Excerpt: We used too have a bigger canon camera but my wife wanted a camera that would fit in her purse but I still wanted a camera that took great photos and this camera was the ultamite compromise! This camera is great because it has a rechargeable battery meaning we don't have to go through a ton of batteries. It takes great pictures.
Excerpt: Where do I begin with how much I love this camera?? It is absolutely amazing! I used to own several different types of cameras, and I knew Sony made excellent mp3 players but I didn't really think of them in regards to cameras a whole lot. I researched this camera a lot before I bought it and I was pretty sure I knew the camera inside and out by the time I clicked the "confirm order" button. And boy, was I not disappointed!
Super versatile and a lot of fun with a little practice

Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to Italy. Over the course of three weeks I snapped 6500 pictures and a few dozen Video Clips. Battery life ran 2 1/2 hours with straight shots and about an hour with video. I strongly recommend a spare battery. I would turn off between shots to extend battery but I completely drained the battery in Rome and really would have liked another hour of battery (the third party battery on this page charges great and is a superb value).
