Sony CyberShot HX200V Review
What Digital Camera
17 May 2012
Summary: There’s no escaping the fact that the HX200V is an impressive bridge camera. It not only features a full specification, but also a host of extra imaging technology sure to impress. However, there are a few gripes – first of all, the price tag is a fair whack higher then similar models on the market,...
Pros: Impressive specification, good design, large focal range
Cons: Premium price, heavy image processing, ill-thought-out menu system
Conclusion: The HX200V takes Sony’s already decent superzoom formula and further improves the recipe. Although we had anticipated that image quality would be a step down compared to its predecessor, the HX200V’s new 18.2-megapixel sensor delivers the goods.
Pros: Manual zoom and focus ring, extensive zoom range, excellent image stabilisation, faster and more accurate autofocus than much of the competition, GPS
Cons: No raw file shooting, image quality ok but no better than standard compact
Summary: Undoubtedly the biggest recommendation we have with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V is that, by daylight, we were able to achieve sharp results shooting handheld with it with greater consistency than we have been able to achieve with pretty much any super zoom camera to date.
