Lab Test: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX100V

  • 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.
