Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V

Camera Labs
1 August 2011
  • 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 as popular models from Panasonic and Fujifilm. On features alone though, the Cyber-shot HX100V is well-equipped for the job.
  • 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.

Sony Cyber-shot HX100V review

What Digital Camera

  • Summary: In terms of performance the Sony HX100V is king of the superzooms: its close-up focusing and nippy autofocus will do you proud in all manner of scenarios. The dual zoom-meets-focus ring is a great control mechanism that's well-placed for comfortable use. Other areas such as HD movie and GPS will make it an all the more attractive purchase.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V review

Pocket Lint
24 May 2011
  • Conclusion: When it comes to superzoom cameras there are three major ones to consider: the 30x zoom Fujifilm HS20, 35x zoom Canon SX30 IS and now the Sony HX100V. Although the Sony may not offer the ability to shoot RAW files (Fuji HS20 only) and its images aren’t any better than a standard compact, it’s a belter of a performer in every other department.
  • Pros: GPS, good autofocus, manual zoom and focus ring
  • Cons: No RAW shooting, image quality no better than standard compact

Test: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
12 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Mit der HX100V gelingt Sony eine überzeugende Megazoom-Kamera: Die Ausstattung ist vorzüglich, der 30fach-Zoom groß genug für fast alle fotografischen Bedürfnisse und der Autofokus schnell sowie der Konkurrenz deutlich überlegen. Die Bildqualität punktet bei geringer Lichtempfindlichkeit mit sehr guter Auflösung und extrem wenig Rauschen, bei intensiver Betrachtung stören jedoch die verwaschen wirkenden, feinen Details.
  • Pros: Überzeugender Bildstabilisator, Rasanter Autofokus, Akku-Laufzeit, Ausstattung
  • Cons: Träge Reaktion auf Eingaben, Darstellung feiner Bilddetails
