Summary: I recently bought my wife a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 as she doesn't like to carry our big Nikon D80 and/or Sony video camera when just going to the park or swim lessons with our 2-year old. After two weeks of Lumix use, I am now sold on downsizing both the D80 and camcorder into a beefed up point and shoot with video. My only gripe about the Lumix is that it doesn't shoot true 1080 video so I decided to buy the Sony DSCHX5VB for my photo and video needs.[...
Summary: I bought this camera instead of the highly rated Lumix LX3 and the Canon S90 as it seemed to offer similar quality but had some additional features, such as GPS Geo Tagging and HD video recording. Having just returned from a long trip around Japan where I used this camera in many situations and took thousands of shots, I think I've seen pretty much all it can do, and it's a pretty mixed result.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V: Good but had a MAJOR FLAW
19 May 2010
Summary: I brought the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5 just before I went away and didn't have much time to test it before I went. I was very impressed with the camera, especially the 10x zoom and the HD Video. However unfortunately I had to take the camera back as for some reason most of the photo's I took at night came out with loads of white dots.
Summary: I've been quite excited about the release of this camera for some time. I needed a good pocketable back-up to my DSLR, preferably with HD video and had done a fair bit of research. Of course, when choosing a camera this small you have to make compromises: I knew that the HX5 offered little in the way of manual control, and that the image quality would not be anywhere near the same level as my Nikon D80.
Summary: Bueno, yo anteriormente me habia comprado una Panasonic TZ8 , las fotos eran muy buenas pero el manejo no era tan simple, siempre hay que ajustar el iso depende las condiciones de luz, y solo por ese motivo la cambie, lo veia un tanto complicado. La gran sorpresa me la lleve cuando la cambie por la Sony HX5V , que tanto la recomiendan en la web. Y mi opinion es que NO SE COMPARA LA CALIDAD , por lejos es mucho mejor panasonic!!!
Summary: Mycket besviken. Vidvinkeln ger grova förvrängningar. Färgerna är väldigt matta. Den har svårt att fokusera i dunkla rum. Idiotisk placering av blixten. Ojämn kvalite på bilder tagna med blixt, ofta blir hudtonen alldeles för ljus och blek. Blixten "bränner" sönder motivet. Visst har den en del roliga finesser men på den viktigaste punkten bra bilkvalite är den ganska dålig. Tycker bilderna tagna med min gamla Canon Powershot-610 är betydligt bättre.
