20 March 2015
  • 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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5

Camera Labs
1 March 2010
  • 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...
  • 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.

  • 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...
  • 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.

  • 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, насыще...

Sony Cybershot DSC HX5 Review

Let's go digital
10 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5 digitale camera review De Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5 is vrij uniek in zijn soort. Niet eens vanwege het krachtige optische bereik van 10x, de concurrentie doet daar zelfs nog een schepje bovenop.
