Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX100V: Review
25 June 2013
Summary: The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX100V is one of the last Bridge cameras from Sony with technical features of the latest generation is able to provide the end user of the tremendous performance gains with less effort if necessary.
Pros: GPS and compass; Exmor R ™ CMOS sensor 16.2 effective megapixels, 30x optical zoom; Panorama 3D, 1080i Full HD movie; TruBlack LCD XtraFine.
Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot HX100V is an ultra-zoom camera with a weird twist: its feature set and operation reminded me of another camera I had reviewed recently. The Sony HX100V felt like an “extra-large” version of Sony HX9V compact super-zoom camera, with a 16 megapixel backlit CMOS image sensor, 3 inch...
Pros: Decent image quality, 30X zoom lens covers a very versatile range of shooting situations, Big, sharp and legible 3 inch LCD; can be flexibly tilted out and up/down, Excellent battery life (when not using GPS often), Custom button and can save 3 sets of settings on Memory Recall mode, Full manual ...
Cons: Overprocessed photos with below average detail levels; muddy photos above ISO 800, 30X lens does not start out as wide as the competition, GPS feature is overly basic, no landmark or maps features, Only 2 aperture choices at any given time; no RAW image mode, No high-speed/slow motion movie optio...
Summary: We liked Sony’s latest camera. The new CyberShot DSC-HX100V it is a gadget that looks elegant, has many interesting features and takes/shoots beautiful photos and movies. Still, we think that its wide variety of features might confuse beginners, so we recommend this device to professionals.
Summary: As a brand new release, the HX100V costs around £429 (May 2011). Given the inclusion of GPS there was always going to be an extra £30 or so additional cost compared to similar competitor models.
Pros: Dual manual zoom/focus ring, GPS
Cons: Fine image quality detail at 100%, no Raw capture
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot HX100V is a 16 Megapixel super-zoom with a 30x stabilised optical zoom lens and a 3 inch flip-up LCD screen with 921 thousand pixel resolution. Sony's first new super-zoom for nearly two years has a job on its hands to compete with the best-selling Canon PowerShot SX30 IS as well...
Pros: Excellent 16 Megapixel image quality., 1080p50/60 HD video., Dual-mode focus/zoom ring., Fast 10fps burst shooting., Built-in GPS receiver.
Cons: No RAW mode., No hotshoe for external flash., Badly designed lens cap.
Excerpt: We write a lot about DSLRs and ILCs here, and all of the advantages of interchangeable lenses. But many people yearn for a camera with a built-in, long-range zoom lens that covers wide-angle to supertele—and that doesn’t cost a thousand dollars or more.
Summary: The Sony HX100V is a great buy considering the fact that you are not looking at professional photography. If you are looking for a better camera the best bet is to buy one of the lower-end DSLR's that Canon and Nikon offer and fall under the same price range.
