  • Conclusion: Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5 digital camera review The Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5 is fairly unique in its kind. Not due to the powerful 10x optical range, as the competition tops that. And also not due to the effective image stabilizer, as that is also known from other manufacturers. The Sony HX5 is unique due to its remarkable image sensor and the possibilities that this offers that make the life of a photographer more pleasant.

  • Conclusion: While you can get more zoom in a same-size camera from competitors, Sony makes up for it with a wealth of innovative features and clever in-camera software in the Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V.
  • Pros: Fast operation. Excellent image quality. Superior video recording (1080i60). Large, 3-inch LCD. Clever in-camera software for creating panoramic photos and reducing image noise. Integrated GPS and compass.
  • Cons: Competition offers more zoom in similar body size.

  • Summary: Don't call Sony's GPS-enabled, feature-loaded DSC-HX5V a gimmick camera. It supplements its in-camera goodies with great image quality and terrific shooting modes.
  • Pros: Panorama, low-light and backlight correction modes; GPS receiver and compass for geotagging; excellent colour accuracy and low-light performance
  • Cons: No aperture-priority or shutter-priority modes, geotagging requires software on a Windows PC, images aren't always sharp

  • Excerpt: With its in-camera GPS, digital compass, wireless image and video sharing via TransferJet, accelerometer-driven panorama mode, and 1080i high-definition video capture in AVCHD format, it's easy to overlook the fact that the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V is, in fact, a camera.
