  • 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: 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.

  • Summary: It's my favorite camera I've ever purchased and well worth the money.
  • Pros: Beautiful pictures outside and is very fast. The rechargeable battery is a must!
  • Cons: It's more difficult to get a great picture inside but it gets the job done.

  • Excerpt: After 6-months the camera is almost perfect--love the build quality, feature to include great video and hand held twilight! The EVF is too small for realistic use--I have cataracts..Image quality far surpasses my Sony P-200 and is better than my film SLR using 400asa film..I photograph wildlife and the 560mm zoom is almost perfect!

  • Excerpt: I bought the HX1 just few days ago. I have also a DSC-H9. The HX1 has almost the same body of H9 but include some advanced functions. Of course, we can't compare HX1 with other advanced DSLR cameras. Yes, 9 MP could be not enough but, image quality comparing the H9 (8MP) is superior. better colors, better image options, functions, and for shooting, the HX1 is faster. Zoom could be greater but 20x is good. The steady image mechanism is awesom.

It takes a trained monkey

Harry G. Arnold, Amazon
9 March 2010
  • Summary: This is just a quickie with the camera straight out of the box. I'll update the stars later. (Updated March 11, 2010) 1. It takes a trained monkey to attach the lens cover to the camera so it doesn't fly off into the wilderness. First you get a thin paper clip and make it into a straight wire with a long narrow hook at one end. Insert the hook through the tiny eyelet in the attaching cord, then pull both strands of the cord through the eyelet to make a loop.

Superb P&S Superzoom with some flaws, as expected

  • Summary: I have had this camera for two days and have experimented with it by taking over 250 pictures using both automatic and manual setting. I read on CNET review that this camera's photo quality is not that great. That is half true. The picture will not turn out sharp and clear if you always use automatic settings; however, manual mode with the correct settings will result in dslr-like photo quality.

Great camera but no DSLR

vlim, Amazon

  • Summary: ** Modified 05-08-09 by adding nitpick #5 :) *** I had been a digital point-and-shoot camera person for about 12 years, since the Canon Powershot 100. Over that time, I've upgraded to various Powershot models until 2 years ago, got a Sony A100 DSLR. I love that camera and have lots of fun taking pictures with it. For work, we had been using my A100 to take product photos. It was nice having a remote, and all of the great DSLR features that come along with that camera.
