Summary: I bought this after my Olympus drowned in the lake.I have owned a couple Kodak's and a Canon.I bought this HX5V Cybershot specifically for the 10xzoom and the panorama sweep features.My Kodak I also bought because of same reasons but,the zoom was a little better the panorama was ok.Every camera I've owned has had there own little feature I liked about it.So there is no real"favorite"..
Summary: I travel frequently and bought this camera because of it's GPS encoding feature. Downside is that it takes a minute or 2 to lock on to satellites. I usually shoot in 16x9 format and in this frame size this camera is only 7 megapixels. HD video is great, so much so that I leave my dedicated HD video cameras at home 'cause this camera fits nicely in my pocket.
Excerpt: PICTURE QUALITY: Really 'true' exposure and colour rendition in day and low-light (however due to typical Sony trait of a love of yellow tinting, in lit interiors I recommend adjusting white balance). Daylight pictures taken in a big range of conditions come out quite sharp. Intelligent Auto mode includes option of exposure bracketing (eg takes 3 shots at different exposure levels), and automatically detects back-lit situations that need foreground compensation (this is...
Summary: I upgraded to the Sony DSCHX5V from the T100 because of the 10x zoom. Otherwise, I would have kept the T100. However, the movie mode is easier to use spontaneously and it also has the panoramic mode - great for scenery on vacations.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Summary: I like the easiness of the camera, since I am not a camera aficionado. The intelligent setting is pretty good for almost all situations. But be careful when using flash on dark places, you may get a few white spots on your photo. If you have a Mac and want to use the GPS, good luck, you better have Boot Camp installed, or a friend with a Windows PC, otherwise it will not work.
Summary: Love the camera, its great for cameras, only downside is the battery wears soooo quickly. I am in search of a backup battery because this camera is the one I bought specifically for the HD Vid capability which obviously runs the battery down more than just capturing images. Otherwise loving the camera and capture images from the back of the motorcycle on a regular basis!
Excerpt: My first Sony camera as I always gave them a wide berth because of the memory card specifics, but that has now been fixed by the introduction of SDHC cards. So after much research and hands on trialing I purchased one. The most impressive feature I have found is the Sony G lens which is found on the high end professional DSLR Sonys. They seem to know what they're doing Sony by ditching Zeiss and the image quality is truely outstanding.
