Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX5 Review

About.com
26 April 2013
  • Summary: My review of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5 digital camera (sometimes called the DSC-HX5V and the DSC-HX5B) shows a very impressive model with a great mix of beginner and intermediate photography features. The HX5 easily shifts from a fully automatic point and shoot model to a camera that allows you to adjust most of the settings manually. The HX5 isn't quite as slim or stylish as some others, but its photo features are great.
  • Pros: Startup is very fast, HX5's iSweep Panorama feature is among the best panoramic features around, Several different movie settings are available, along with a dedicated movie button, HX5 excels in low-light photography; small flash is powerful, 10X zoom lens with limited wide angle option is nice addition
  • Cons: Price is a little high, Shots with the flash can suffer from some shutter lag, Camera is a little bigger and heaver than most beginner cameras, Can inadvertently cover flash while holding camera

  • 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.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V is a 10.2 megapixel compact digital camera that promises to appeal to tech-friendly photographers thanks to a number of very cool features. For starters the HX5V brings a backlit sensor design aimed at improving low light performance, and pairs that with a versatile 10x zoom lens.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5

Camera Labs

  • Summary: Despite being packed with gadgetry and its fair share of innovation, the HX5 is ultimately about having a long optical zoom in a compact camera. It may actually sport the shortest total range of its rivals, with 'just' 10x compared to the 12 and 14x of the Panasonic TZ10 / ZS7 and Canon SX210 IS respectively, but starting at an equivalent of 25mm and not stopping until you reach 250mm, there's very few occasions when you'll curse it for not zooming wider or longer.
  • Pros: 10x zoom with 25mm wide angle., HD movies at up to 1080i., Built-in GPS with compass., Very fast continuous shooting at 10fps., Innovative and effective auto modes.
  • Cons: No location names on-screen from GPS., GPS often slower to lock-on than Lumix TZ10 / ZS7., Low noise claims not realised. No better than rivals., Adjustable 'aperture' of very limited use.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5 review

Pocket Lint
28 July 2010
  • Conclusion: The Sony Cyber-shot HX5 is a competently constructed and thoughtfully featured compact at a keenly competitive price. For the amateur photographer wanting both portability and versatility in the one device - without actually trading up further and spending twice the outlay on a Micro Four Thirds type hybrid camera - the above combination ensures that the HX5 is well worth any expectant traveller seeking out.
  • Pros: Longer focal length lens affords a wider range of creative framing possibilities, lots of innovative features on board that you don't normally find in this price bracket, smooth to use (and review) Sweep Panorama function is a bonus
  • Cons: Sweep Panorama function produces lower resolution stills than supplied by (admittedly more expensive) NEX models - and it isn't 3D - plus the camera requires a period of familiarisation if the user wishes to move beyond pointing and shooting

Sony Cybershot DSC HX5 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: De Sony Cybershot HX5 is mij zeker goed bevallen. Voor een gebruiker van compactcamera’s biedt de Sony HX5 veel en zal het de gebruikers waarschijnlijk het gevoel geven te maken te hebben met een allround camera. En daar zit je dan als beginnende fotograaf niet eens zo gek ver vanaf. Toch ervaar ik het als een gemiste kans dat de Sony DSC-HX5 niet net even wat meer geavanceerdere, of beter gezegd, meer echt handmatige modus te bieden heeft.

  • Pros: Компактный корпус, особенно с учетом кратности зума., Диапазон зума 10х., Наличие широкого угла – от 25 экв. мм., Оптическая стабилизация изображения, с новым режимом Active Movie., Быстрый автофокус., Серийная съемка 10 кадров/сек при полном разрешении кадра., Автопереключение в макрорежим., Функция iSweep Panorama – с совмещением кадров и компенсацией движущихся объектов., Режим HDR расширяет динамический диапазон, очень полезен при контровом свете., Режим Сумерки с...
  • Cons: Не очень надежный хват камеры., Зуммирование в области широких углов слишком быстрое, точной композиции удается добиться не всегда., Нет режимов приоритета диафрагмы и выдержки., В «ручном» режиме М доступны только два значения диафрагмы., Нет подстройки параметров изображения – контраста, насыщенности, резкости., Стабилизатор SteadyShot нельзя отключить., В режиме панорамной съемки зум жестко фиксирован., Вспышка слишком близко к рукоятке (особенно для больших рук).,...

Sony Cybershot DSC HX5 Test

Let's go digital
15 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5 Digitalkamera Test Die Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5 ist ziemlich einmalig in ihrer Art. Nicht so sehr wegen ihres starken optischen Bereichs von 10-fach, die Konkurrenz legt hier sogar noch eine Schüppe obendrauf. Und auch nicht wegen des effektiven Bildstabilisators, auch den kennen wir von anderen Herstellern. Die Sony HX5 ist einmalig wegen ihres auffälligen Bildsensors und der damit verbundenen Optionen, die das Leben der Fotografen vereinfachen.
