Excerpt: The Sony Cyber-shot HX200V is one of the best bridge cameras both on and beneath the surface. The camera has an 18-megapixel sensor and image processor, and with the improved stabilization, movies and images come out clearer than ever. The Clear Image Zoom extends the zoom range to 60x without losing image quality. This camera works perfectly for shooting images or recording video of high-action sequences since all videos are 1080p.
Pros: This camera automatically takes panoramic photos with the push of a button.
Cons: The Cyber-shot won’t let you shoot images in RAW format.
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. Sure the shots aren’t going to see off those from larger sensor cameras such as DSLRs, but they are sharp and well processed, even if no more standout compared to other compact cameras.
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
