Showing 1-3 of 3
Sony's HX30V performs well, but there are better options out there for the price.

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.
