Sony Cyber-shot HX9V
13 October 2011
Conclusion: The Cyber-shot HX9V is an excellent compact camera that leaves little to be desired. It’s rare to find a compact that doesn’t fall down at one or two hurdles, but this is Sony at its finest.
Pros: Excellent zoom range, decent pictures, GPS, affordable, well built & good finish
Cons: No Aperture or Shutter Priority, menus can be a little slow to react
Excerpt: The HX9V is one of the pricier pocket-sized ultra-zoom cameras, but it's also the most feature-packed. There's AVCHD video recording at up to 1080/50p, GPS tagging, manual exposure and focus control and a 3in, 921,000-dot screen that's as sharp as the eye can see.
Summary: The HX9V is a powerful compact but faces stiff competition from its cheaper rivals such as the Panasonic Lumix-DMC TZ20 and Canon PowerShot 230HS. But, for the extra money, the HX9V does offer an array of intelligent features, as well as a longer zoom lens and higher-resolution sensor.
Summary: We took the HX9V to Ballarat for a tourist try-out and we loved the wide-angle end of the zoom. This really is a camera to consider for the trip to Europe.
Pros: The lens is remarkably good for such a long range and images at ISO200 are clean, which is surprising for a 16mp sensor. Focus and exposure are accurate. And the 24mm wide angle is excellent for architectural photography. Video quality is outstanding.
Cons: By default colours are over-saturated, but that can be reduced by a menu adjustment. The lack of printed instructions, beyond how to insert the battery and turn the camera on, is inexcusable.
Summary: The Sony CyberShot DSC-HX9V is the best travel-zoom camera that we've reviewed to date, taking on and beating the market-leading Panasonic DMC-TZ20. The HX9V offers a compelling mix of advanced features, excellent still image quality, and a class-leading video mode, all at a price that is...
Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V is the company’s almost top of the range HX camera for those not looking for a zoom that will get them from here to the other side of the street and beyond. That’s not to say that the HX9V isn’t packing when it comes to the optical zoom department.
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V is priced at Rs.16,990. This is a great camera and is priced competitively in the travel compact segment. It has really good zoom along with a neat 3D capture feature. The only thing we missed was the lack of aperture priority and shutter priority modes.
