Summary: After a lot of looking, I found this camera and ordered it. I have been using it and playing with the settings and features for a while now and find it to be smarter than I thought. I love the face and smile detection. You can also take multiple frames per shot by holding down the shutter button (but with NO flash). There are too many features to go over but it hasn't let me down. I've taken some action shots and they have came out well.
Summary: Very satisfied with my camera. I have had it now for almost a year and love the i-mode. Automatically takes 2 pictures in low light conditions. Takes great panoramics. Pictures are downloaded to a calendar in the software. No more trying to remember when that shot was taken.
Summary: I usually use SLR's--both digital and conventional. I went to the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V because I was looking for a camera that I could fit in my pocket while traveling in South America over the summer, but that would also take great quality photos. I naturally gravitated towards the Sony since I have the Sony digital SLR (since I am a fan of Minolta cameras and Sony bought their technology out several years back). So, what do I like about the camera?
Summary: It seems to take a long time for the lens to retract. It should have come with its own memory card. The zoom is great. The panoramic feature is neat but seems to not last long enough to get the entire view. It's too big to put in my pocket. Excellent feature is the ability to delete pictures by date range. I would recommend this camera.
Summary: I use this camera for everything from taking picture/taking videos. The camera is an awesome camera, I use a lot the gps, on it to track where i took the pictures. The camera takes awesome resolution, I don't want to go into detail because every camera has his pros and con. But i love this camera, I have multiples cameras from nikon, to sony, and many more. This cant beat the price when I bought.
