Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V

PC Magazine
5 July 2012
  • Conclusion: With its Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V, Sony packs a long 20x zoom lens and GPS into one decidedly svelte camera. It's one of the more expensive compact superzoom models you'll find, but all those features along with high performance warrant the price.
  • Pros: Sharp images. Good high ISO performance. GPS. Long zoom range. Shoots stills while recording video.
  • Cons: Expensive.

  • Excerpt: Pocket ultra-zoom cameras combine point-and-shoot simplicity with a big zoom to help frame shots more creatively, and are a worthwhile upgrade to a smartphone's camera that can't zoom at all. The HX20V is the pricier of two such models in Sony current range (HX10V review coming soon).
