Summary: Flash location is often under a finger holding the camera. Would prefer that the flash did not automatically pop up in dim light. Hasn't been used long enough to comment on battery life. Used mainly for candid shots of family/grandchildren, and my wife likes to look at the Pxs on the camera often. Far more features than we will ever use. Seems to have a rather quick recovery time between shots. Picture resolution is fine for our home use.
Pros: 16x Zoom Is A Plus, Less Bulky Than The Sx160
Cons: Flash Is Where Cam Held, Flash location, Flash Pops Up Automatical
Best camera for the budget, no other compares !!!!!

Summary: The Sony Cyber Shot HX200V in my opinion is the best camera in it's class hands down ! I tried other major brands like Canon, etc. just wasn't happy but when I took a look at this sony I was sold. Picture quality through the roof with so so so many features on board.
A great camera that produces great images through a range of features.

Summary: After doing a great deal of research, my partner bought one of these brand new about a year ago. Within three weeks, she accidentally spilled salad oil on it and shortly thereafter, the camera slowed to a standstill. It has been sitting in a box on floor waiting to be sent back to "somewhere" to have it fixed ever since. Well, after a year of waiting, I went on eBay and bought two of them; one for her, and one for me. What an amazing piece of technology.
