wolfenite, DP Review

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.
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.
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: I am very pleased with the camera to this point. I haven't used it extensively yet, but have taken over 200 shots. The quality is very good. I purchased this camera to take to Europe in July so I can document my travels. My wife uses the larger Nikon with several lens, but for our trip I didn't want to load us down. This camera was refurbished, but it looks and performs as new. The package was the only clue that this camera may have been used.
Good zoom, low light capability, slow reaction time, controls can be better

Summary: Camera worked as expected, I had a HX10V which is similar. Good 20x zoom + digital zoom. Excellent low light capability, processing/reaction time sometimes slow 2-3 seconds between shots in low light. But results better than canon. Higher ISO 12800 than comparable Canon and Panasonic models.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my Sony H90. The HX20V has much clearer and sharper images, so it is a big upgrade. The only problem I have had with the HX20V is the position of the movie button. It is right near the finger grip and can easily be hit and record a movie without your knowledge.
Summary: I purchased the Sony Cyber shot DSCHX20V B Black 18MP camera a few weeks ago and have completely enjoyed learning how to luse it. The quality of the photos is very good, no need to edit once photos have been downloded to PC. I also enjoy taking photos of my pets and OMG, just beautiful... Love the ability to Zoomk 20X all I can say is WOW Can't say enough on how I am enjoying my new toy... Good price too ..
