  • 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. It is very stylish and slick, but handy enough! Nice that you have the documentation with you and nice that the "Auto super-intelligent!

Good but...

  • 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. Most places won't let you in with a dslr and the Canon, while an excellent camera, lacks decent video and zoom. So I was looking for a compact mega-zoom.

Use it if you like to hand over creative control

  • 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. The camera can recognize faces and smiles and do the right things with them. Dynamic range is also superb. Backlit photos are handled well. All in all, the automation is great. The panorama shots are lovely.

  • 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. Having said this, I will say that in terms of usable pictures, this camera was much better in my opinion than the Canon SX230 HS, which I returned to try this one. Here is what I found between the two: 1.

  • 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. It seems to be what happens when products are designed by computer geeks rather than serious photographers.

HX9V packed with features but image quality could be improved

  • 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. Suffice it to say, it did not meet my total expectations; the camera was returned today.

Takes pictures, but not great ones.

M. Witherington "Gadget Freak", Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is a little strange. On paper the specs are great but the camera does not deliver good pictures. The pictures produced are full of artifacts because of the aggressive compression Sony use. Even at the lowest iso, pictures are 'noisy'. The good thing about this camera is that it will take pictures in most lighting conditions and they come out sharp; unfortunately thought the 'noise' is disappointing.

  • Summary: The videos manage fine in daylight and good artificial light and even the sound is good. Otherwise, you can forget the HX9v.

OK quality, but not excellent.

  • 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. Sorry to confuse people reading through these reviews even further if they are intending to buy. I say this, cause most Point and shoot cameras do operate very well in good light anyway.
