  • Summary: A high quality ultra-zoom from Sony. This camera almost ran away with the our scores this time around, with only the Canon Powershot S100 giving it a run for its money. The camera sports impressive video recording capabilities and managed to ace almost all of our tests. A brilliant all-round camera if you can don't mind the size.
  • Pros: Video performance, Performance in low-light, Detail in macro mode, Optics are excellent
  • Cons: Lack of hot shoe, Noise Reduction algorithms too aggressive

  • Excerpt: Super-zoom cameras in a mini- DSLR frame are a segment that is seeing a lot of growth in recent times. Sony’s offering in this segment is the HX100V which boasts of a 30x optical zoom lens. Its closest competitors the Nikon Coolpix P500 and the Canon Ixus 30IS have optical zoom of 36x and 35x respectively. But the HX100V makes up for the loss of optical zoom with a plethora of features that may take me pages to pen down. Let’s cut the small talk and get down to business.
