Luekutus, DP Review
7 January 2015
Excerpt: I loved this camera. The zoom, the GPS, the colors in the photos — everything I wanted in a compact camera. The problem was dust. There was so much debris on the sensor after less than a month of casual shooting that I had to send it off for cleaning.
Summary: While I liked the features on the camera, it had an ongoing problem with dust specs on the inside of the lens. I had it back to Sony 3 times before they finally gave me a new camera on the 4th time I sent it in.
Excellent camera with more features & better images than a point-and-shoot

Summary: This is a wonderful camera packed with all of the features that I need. I am an advanced amateur photographer that likes to take quick photos at times, but I also enjoy carefully setting up more creative photos or taking photos under demanding conditions where auto settings frequently fail to...
I will try to find the exact same camera when my new one gives out.

Summary: This is an awesome camera! When my first Sony finally gave out I went on ebay to buy the exact same camera. My favorite feature is the close ups I take of flowers and bees. They are amazing. Refresh time is pretty quick too. Love all the options this camera has. It takes overall awesome pictures.
Summary: It is my second unit of this camera at home. It has got some worthy features over the previous HX9v that I also still own, horizon indicator for avoiding unbalanced pictures -wonder how I can make so many of my pics tilted when I swear I am doing them right!
Not Bad for the Price but Canon Powershot SX700 HS Better
26 May 2014
Summary: I dropped my Canon Powershot S80 & got this to replace it. I was looking for the widest (24-25 mm) with good zoom in a compact camera. However, I'm not a "true' camera person & don't want to do my own settings mostly.
Summary: Great picture with all the bells and whistles for control. Actually too much for a novice. But if you know what you need, you definitely can tweak it for a fantastic picture. Great pictures straight out of the camera. Video is not too bad. Only thing I am not fan of the the placement of the flash.
Summary: I have had this camera for about two years now, and it is wonderful. It's small and lightweight, so it doesn't look intimidatingly huge like the cameras with foot-long lenses, but it takes amazing photos with great zoom.
Summary: I upgraded to the HX20V from the HX9V. Many other reviewers have written plenty on the model so I would only say one thing: The biggest issue I have is that this one is also slow in processing and the wait is frustrating when good shots have been missed time and again.
Summary: This is our first Sony camera. I read other reviews and thought given the features this one offeres we would give it a try. Thus far we are very happy with the camera. It offers a lot of idiot-proof options. The one thing I wish all cameras came with was a cheat sheet to find the features though.
