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.
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: 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: 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
Excerpt: Its 30x zoom range isn't the biggest around but pretty much everything else about the HX100V follows the theme of bigger, faster and more, from its 16-megapixel sensor to its 1080/50p video recording.
Excerpt: Sony's HX100V features a brand new 16.2Mp, back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. This new sensor is able to capture large 4608x3456px JPEGs, as well as full 1080HD video. On the front sits a 30x optical zoom lens (27-810mm), and this offers Sony's Optical SteadyShot lens-shift image stabilisation.
