  • Excerpt: I bought this camera as an upgrade to my Panasonic FZ18 (which I loved). I got it mainly for the higher zoom as well as the panoramic sweep feature which is pretty cool. I also like the movie mode as well as the flipable screen. I would say in normal conditions/lighting the pictures taken by this camera turn out great. That said, I was still disappointed.

  • Excerpt: I've bought this camera with high expectations, but the result was not impressive at all. Camera is big, tough and not suitable for daily use. But these problems would be funny if the quality of photo's would be great or good. First of all, I must mention, that the green colour in images is very weak, sometimes we are looking to photos made and wondering: every colour (yellow, red, blue and etc) is rich, but green - very faded.

Good Features but not so good images

  • Summary: The features are excellent in this camera. Like the burst mode which captures up to 10 pics and u can choose the best out of it. Similarly the smile detection mode which really does a good job of clicking at the right moment. The flash in completely dark ambiance comes really good as if the place had good lighting. Sweep Panorama is simply great, so easy and most of the time even if we shake the picture still comes good.

Image quality not as bad as online reviews suggest

Cookery lover, Amazon
26 February 2010
  • Summary: Like many people I became very concerned after ordering this product that the image quality would be terrible (see majority of photography sites online). I have since developed a batch of prints (taken using the camera's automatic settings) in 4x6.5, 10x7 and A4 sizes, to test the quality. For a non-professional photographer, they're absolutely fine. Taking travel photos is my hobby, mostly landscapes and architecture, but I'm no expert.

Great features , but noisy photos

M. Coyle, Amazon
28 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera and returned it a few days later. It is first class on all counts - except the quality of the photos - a rather key feature for a camera. I knew some online reviews had highlighted this, but decided to take a chance. I ended up going out on a short trip with this one and 2 other cameras and attempted to take identical pictures. Compared to my 4 year old trusty Nikon 7900, a simple 7mp compact, this pictures were definitely more noisy.

  • Excerpt: Очень быстро перерос это японское чудо, теперь душа просит зеркало.
  • Pros: -Отличная оптика - претензий к объективу никаких. -Удобство управления. -Полноценные ручные режимы. -Неплохой шумодав.
  • Cons: -Поганое сжатие в jpeg, причем степень сжатия не настраивается - она всегда высокая, с сильной потерей качества и жуткими артефактами. -Отсутствие возможности сохранения фотографий в других форматах. -Зависание управления после снимка - 3 секунды аппарат думает. Понятно, что сохраняет снимок, но хоть бы дал зум покрутить... Сильно мешает репортажной съемке. -После года работы начало клинить все кнопки верхней панели, в том числе спусковую. аппарат не падал и не засоря...

  • Conclusion: Стоит своих денег, если вы не знаете что такое "шум" на фотографиях,-то смело покупайте. Брака на фото очень мало,- стабилизатор работает очень хорошо
  • Pros: Зум реальный. Очень удобно подхватывать разные ракурсы-поворотный экран помогает. Некоторые фотки получаются просто великолепно. Все удобно расположено и автоматика бесшумно и быстро работает.
  • Cons: Шума на фотках очень много. Искажение лиц из-за широкого угла

Lo bueno y lo malo en 6 meses.

  • Summary: Después de haber tenido 2 compactas una sony Dsc 55 y una Lumix fs20 opté con una de mayores prestaciones como el Zoom y los ajustes manuales, como la abertura, velocidad y exposición, la verdad es que la DSC HX1 fue la que elegí como mi nueva cámara. Después de un tiempo de uso la verdad es que del principio no me gustó, a pesar de tener una buena calidad en las fotografías, un barrido panorámico excelente, es muy lenta para cambiar al estado de reproducción de la foto,...
