Not Bad for the Price but Canon Powershot SX700 HS Better

michifur, Amazon

  • 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. (The Canon Powershot SX50 hs got the best reviews but at 19.4 oz, I just can't live with that big/heavy a camera.) Note: I first tried the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS19.

Sony does it again

  • 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. Little awkward and not ergonomically designed, Otherwise, I recommend it especially if you can get a deal.

Nice point and shoot with high resolution images

  • 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. The tech manual that came with the camera stinks. I had to go to Sony's page to find the real one. Also, if you are like me, you tend hold the camera with both hands.

User 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 specifically love the sweep panorama feature; it's fascinating how seamless it stitches it all together. The zoom is also fantastic.

Great camera for the size!

  • 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

hnl53, Ebay
9 April 2013
  • 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.
