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.

Flash location a real drawback

swingweb2, CNET
1 April 2012
  • Summary: Not sure I would purchase this again with the flash issue being a major negative. It will eventually break and get stuck down and will need to be repaired (three weeks with Sony minimum). I can deal with the other drawbacks but be wary of this flash issue.
  • Pros: Still shots and video all-in-one package. Multiple (and a bit confusing) features.
  • Cons: A bit bulky and not truly one that fits in the pocket. Flash design is very poor and will break. Its pop-up location is where your fingers go. Zoom is very hard to pinpoint control and is noisy to the point where it compromises video.

User Review

markomb, DP Review
16 September 2011
  • Excerpt: My Lumix DMC TZ5 died so I decided to go for sony now since new DMC TZ panasonics are reviewed as not so good as old ones. I use this camera as second camera besides SLR, and for sport/family trips. Sonys pictures are satisfying, colors are too saturated, and images are somehow too much processed in camera allready. Camera is very slow (if compared to my 3 year old broken lumix) in terms of functionality (power on off, image review, zoom image, processing etc...

Good camera, but not great

Harvey Hanson "Harv", Amazon
23 December 2011
  • Summary: Had this camera for 3 months now, so here is my review. + Nice tones on the pictures + Has manual mode + Massive zoom for the size of camera (that works well) + Auto mode works well in most situations + Panoramic works reasonably well - it works, but if you are not using a tripod, you can get jagged edges where it joins the pictures + Video mode is very good quality + Good price when factoring in the cashback (£239 - £40 = £199, although a week after I bought it Amazon...

Viele Funktionen- aber Fotos sind zu oft verwischt

Hans Peter, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: Nach einem 3/4 Jahr muss ich leider eine schlechte Bilanz ziehen,was diese Kamera betrifft. Zunächst sind die vielen Features ganz nett, das GPS war im Urlaub ein interessantes Gimmick, Positionsbestimmung müsste allerdings viel schneller gehen, wenn man jedes Bild mit Koordinate versehen will. Das ist aber eigentlich nicht schlimm und ist bei diesem Kameratyp eigentlich auch nicht anders zu erwarten. Die Probleme: 1.

grande delusione per un prodotto costoso

alemargio67, Ciao
29 December 2012
  • Summary: Essendo un'amante della fotografia ho deciso di passare un pò di tempo fà dalla mia canon power shot g6, che seppur vecchiotta mi dava tante soddisfazioni, alla sony dsc hx9v, che mi aveva molto attratto intanto per la possibilità di scattare foto luminose anche in condizioni poco luminose e pur utilizzando lo zoom, lo zoom potente.
  • Pros: foto panoramiche
  • Cons: prezzo, colori sfalsati, posizione flash

extremer Rotstich

Sohe, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe die Kamera vor einem Jahr gekauft. Die Fotos haben einen extremen und unnatürlichen Rotstich. Meine Kinder haben normalerweise blondes Haar. Auf jedem Foto im Automatik Programm haben sie rote Haare wie Pumuckl. Eine Veränderung zum Beispiel des Weißabgleichs ist im Automatik Programm nicht möglich bei anderen Programmen ist es nur so zu ändern, das alles andere einen unnatürlichen Blaustich hat.
