mtepo, DP Review

Excerpt: You can do lot of things with this small and nice camera - films, 3D photos, panoramas... First, it is full with features that are great to use. Second it is a compact camera that can do so much with so little effort and that can be also used with custom settings as well.
Summary: I'll try to keep this short. I normally shoot with a dslr as a hobby. When I don't or can't lug that around I shoot with a Canon G10. But I needed something that I could take to concerts that was small, had a long lens reach and could shoot quality video.
Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot HX9V is an excellent camera, on the higher end of the P&S spectrum. There are a plethora of options for every conceivable situation, including, for example, portraits, snow pictures, fireworks, landscapes, night photography, etc.
Excerpt: My quest to find a compact replacement for my older Sony DSC-H5 (7.2MP / 12X Optical) has unfortunately ended in failure. It's hard to believe that a camera almost 4 years old still takes better pictures than these newer compact ones.
Excerpt: The Sony has better ergonomics than the ZS10. It feels really comfortable to hold. The real shortcoming is the failure to include shutter priority and aperture priority on the command dial. Its hard to imagine why this product went to market without these two features, but the omission is serious.
HX9V packed with features but image quality could be improved
29 May 2011
Summary: I've been testing the camera for several days now, and whilst the features and technical aspects of the hx9V are great, I regret to say, I just couldn't get past the 'average' image quality. This was the deal breaker for me.
Summary: Don't really want to say different to everyone else as you usually start getting annoying comments following your review. However this is my personal experience and as I paid nearly £300 for this, I was expecting a bit more to be honest. The picture still quality is average.
Excerpt: Перепробовала все возможные настройки и все равно получается какая-то фигня вместо фоток. На самом деле, старые мыльницы фоткают лучше, а этот дорисовывает детали на свое усмотрение. Начиталась восторженных отзывов и купила его, хотя все советовали nicon/canon. Обидно за 11000 руб.
Pros: Много интересных функций, впрочем со временем о них забываешь.
Cons: Фотки при ЛЮБЫХ настройках получаются как после обработки эффектом "акварель" в каком-нибудь фотошопе. Ни одной четкой фотки, кроме макросъемки.
