Good camera but not as good as expected

CC Estimator, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Was expecting a great camera but got a little better than OK. This all could be from the shipping because when I got the camera the box was open and there was a little rattle in the camera. Anyway I have returned and going to go back to Panasonic Lumix.

Good but not great

Book lover, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: I like the camera and its features. The main problem I have with it is the specialty battery pack. I used to have a camera using AAs, so there was never an issue getting more juice for it, no matter where I was. Now initially I wasn't all that worried about the battery being a specialized one because it was supposed to charge with a micro USB connection, and these days you can find almost always someone somewhere with a micro USB cable.

Sony HX10V - not thrilled

JP, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: I recently purchased the HX10V but am having issues with the use of the flash. As mentioned in other reviews the flash pops-up which makes it more difficult to hold the camera as it is farily compact. The more troubling issue is the brightness of the flash. It is very intense and i have not found a way to adjust it. Faces are washed out and scenes look overexposed. I am considering returning the camera and finding somehting else.

Ermm..

  • Summary: I've had this camera for a day and a half now. Day one: -I find out that it does not have manual focus like the hx9v -I play around with the effects which aren't as impressive as my old canon. -I try out the zoom which is fantastic. I used it to read a page from a book across the house. -I try out the flash which is also fantastic. It somehow reaches all the way across two dark rooms to read yet another book page. -Pretty easy to use.

Not so easy

Donald M. Schramm, Amazon
27 July 2012
  • Summary: The Sony DSCHX10v--was purchased to support field operations that requires GPS documentation with the pictures, as apart of litigation actions. The camera was purchased with that in mind. The quality of pictures is great,and the many features, but the Users Manual is basically worthless; the extensive internal menus and submenues in the camera are not user friendly and you must rely on discovery rather than guideance to find what you need.

Read Manual! Great Motions Shots!

10ant, Amazon
15 June 2012
  • Summary: Watched the C-net reviews and read the Amazon reviews and there was quite a few mentions of simplicity. Simple for so many features? Yes. But for the average guy like me who never takes the time to read a manual and does things through trial and error. I'd recommend spending a little time understanding the different functions. It will make for a better experience with less errors. Camera is great, took some difficult shot while moving.

Great camera and features but weird video facility

MRS C., Amazon

  • Summary: Im not sure whats wrong with this model but the video always comes out grainy, with lines across it and disjointed. Other than that, awesome features and good quality in low light too.

Good with caveats

Dr. Edward Austin "booboo", Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: The 26mm wide angle is very useful as is the 16:9 mode. Image quality is OK but viewing at actual size shows significant water colour smudging even at the lowest (100) ISO setting. This I expect is due to the 18.2MP sensor, however it performs sub par to a 6MP Fuji sensor if the truth be told. The higher ISO's more of a gimmick than any use. Noise a huge issue at all sensitivities. Nice camera but image quality is so so.

Great pictures, poor usability

A Customer, Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: Good points: Low light pictures are excellent making the camera very versatile compared to my old Lumix TZ3 model. The Panoramic picture facility is excellent. GPS sounds like a novelty, but it is really useful when you are travelling. Zoom is good and relatively easy to use. Not so good points: This is the most frustrating camera I have ever had, when I take a picture it insists on showing me it for 2 seconds unless I press the shutter trigger again.

Disappointing

M. Gledhill, Amazon
6 August 2012
  • Summary: This is the third Sony compact camera I've bought over the past 10 years. This latest generation is much faster and slicker than my old Cybershot W270 camera, but (ironically) much bulky and heavier. It's biggest selling point is that it'll (optionally) take a set of photos, to make sure you get the best, least blurry one. With two young kids, this is a great feature. But, in doing so, you press the button to take one photo, and it's busy for the next 4-5 seconds.
