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.
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.
Excerpt: Was using mostly SLR, so thought will go for a no frills auto one but was not so satisfied after buying HX1. LIKE: -Good built, comfortable grip -Lots of feature, specially like the panaromic mode -Works good even while on moving cars -Good battery life but depletes very fast in cold climate -Great...

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.
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.
Summary: Quando lançaram a Sony HX1 eu me apaixonei e logo adquiri a minha. Com o tempo fui vendo que ela deixa a desejar e perde para muitas outras marcas e modelos parecidos. Para um leigo, a função "automático" é a mais usada e a qualidade das imagens no modo automático com muita luz natural fica...
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 ...
