Excerpt: I have owned this model for almost two years. For a point and shoot camera I enjoy this one. I like the fact I can set my own manual settings when I want. It is comfortable to use although it took me a few times remember not to place my left index finger on top of the camera where the flash pops up. I like the fact that I can record my children's events and take snap shots at the same time.
After 2 months, this camera continues to impress me.

Summary: I did a great deal of research before choosing the Sony HX20V camera. This camera had a superior rating from all the photo-review sites, which allowed me to directly compare the Sony to many other brands -- feature-by-feature. Professional photographers will note that there is no "raw" format, and techies will note that there is no Wi-Fi connection (that is offered in a later version). Neither was important to me.
Been waiting for a camera like this for a long time

Summary: Love the point and shoot clarity. Great easy to use camera and have been waiting for a camera that I can take everywhere. It is a little heavy but the quality of photos is worth it for a point and shoot.
Excerpt: This is my 6. digicam. Zoom and picture quality are really great, it would be the best travel camera I ever had. BUT... despite always using a camera bag and taking the camera out only for taking pictures, putting it back right away, and despite being a careful owner trying to keep the camera away from wind, dust, etc. ...
I would recommend this camera for everyday shoots but no raw limits it.

Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V is a good little camera for those who just want a point and shoot camera. For those who ask for more control over shooting parameters, perfect images and for commercial use, this Sony is not the right camera for you. The absence of RAW image ability and the small sensor makes this camera a good but not great camera. Yes, It has 18.2 mega pixels. That is not going to insure a great image. The sensor is just too small for the 18.2 mega pixels.
Summary: My second camera like this, as I dropped the first one into salt water, (don't recommend this!) and OH.....ruined it!! This purchase was a replacement for the other one. Love this little camera. Has great picture quality and lots of whistles and bells. I own a larger Nikon digital, but use this little one the most. Very versatile camera. I highly recommend.
Excerpt: I tested out this camera for 3 days and although I ended up going for a higher end model (at twice the price) I must say I was impressed with how much was packed into this little camera for such a low price. The grip is excellent and the camera feels solid in your hand. Unfortunately the only gripe I have is with the quality of the buttons which feel a bit cheap.
Summary: I searched for a camera for over a year and finally settled on this model. It has all of the features I wanted and then some. I haven't found anything that I dislike about my new camera. This wasn't the newest model but the newer models did not have all of the features that I wanted.
