Sony's HX30V performs well, but there are better options out there for the price.
11 October 2012
Conclusion: The compact camera market has been characterized as a bit of a sinking ship in the past couple years, under siege by smartphone cameras on one side and entry-level mirrorless models on the other. But the truth of the matter is that there’s still plenty of innovation in this space, especially with regard to the insanely long optical zoom ratios crammed into tiny camera bodies these days. We found the camera much more frustrating in the real world, however.
Conclusion: With its Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V, Sony packs a long 20x zoom lens, Wi-Fi, and GPS into one decidedly svelte camera. It's one of the more expensive compact superzoom models you'll find, but all those features along with high performance warrant the price.
Pros: Sharp images. Good high ISO performance. Wi-Fi. GPS. Long zoom range. Shoots stills while recording video.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V – feature-rich compact with 20x zoom lens
27 May 2012
Conclusion: Sony DSC-HX30V is a camera that can do much more than compacts from the Cyber-shot series. Unlike them, it has a powerful lens capable of zooming in up to 20 times. It’s not high-end but its advanced features are worth looking forward to. It does come at an expensive price at $420 but you should be willing to pass this on for its immense features. Otherwise if you’re going for low-end, we recommend the rugged Cyber-shot DSC-TX20 .
Summary: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX30V è una fotocamera digitale compatta con sensore CMOS da 18 megapixel Exmor R, zoom ottico 20x, modulo GPS, registrazione video 1080p a 60 fps e connettività WiFi per la condivisione delle immagini
