Sony HX9V Digital Camera

  • Excerpt: I recently sold my underwater camera and decided to purchase a new digital camera for my normal use. I mean, really, I don’t need an underwater camera all the time because I don’t hit the beaches often, so I need something that I could use for normal, daily activities …

  • Excerpt: This was my first good quality 'superzoom' GPS compact camera. Since this I've owned the Canon SX260 HS and my present camera a Panasonic TZ-40 (SZ-30 in US). The pictures from this camera are the best of the 3, especially in panorama where it kicks the other 2 into a top hat! It wasn't perfect in other areas, but I still think that when you're talking about cameras, image quality must be the foremost consideration.

DON'T BUY THIS CAMERA!

oinmartini, CNET
10 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought one 8 months ago and honestly was very happy with it, in spite of the control layout on the back of the camera. But then it went bad (complete loss of control of all the menu functions, it would barely point and shoot, and loss of any review function). Still 4 months left in Sony's warranty, so no big deal (still I was disappointed. None of my older Canon or other Sony's have failed. I'm using them as backups now). BUT... it has "humidity" damage.
  • Pros: Takes great pictures, Very compact with a great zoom.
  • Cons: IT WILL ONLY LAST 8 months and Sony WILL NOT HONOR the warranty., poor/useless controls mapped on the back of the camera, no way to reassign the useful stuff (like exposure compensation. you have to enter a menu for this)

DO NOT BUY! SONY WILL NOT HONOR THE WARRANTY

Oliver, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera based on a C-Net review and previous Sony cameras. I was reasonably happy for 8 months (well within the warranty period). Then it went bad. The digital controls stopped functioning, and while I could do some point and shoot (barely), I couldn't change any functions or review the photos. NO PROBLEM, I thought, it's still under warranty, but no, it has water damage, no it has humidity damage, no, maybe its heat. Which apparently voided the warranty.

Disappointing picture quality and slow operation.

yy_nyc, CNET
22 April 2012
  • Summary: I am not sure what is actually in fault here. Perhaps the sensor has too many megapixels, or the zoom range was pushed too far. It might be good for video or taking panoramas for web, but it fails to take clean pictures. Even in perfect light, the pictures have watercolor quality to them. I thought overall that the picture quality was on par with my iphone 4. Combined with functional zoom, this could be alright for a lot of people.
  • Pros: Good zoom range. , GPS , Clelver multi-shot modes (twilight, panorama ect.)
  • Cons: Soft pictures in all modes. , Lots of noise on pixel level., Unacceptably slow operation.
