Very good camera if you keep your expectations realistic!

Summary: I've had many digital cameras through the years, as I'm a camera addict. My main cameras are a Canon 60d slr and a Sony NEX 5n. I use the slr when image quality is of utmost priority, but I don't like to lug it and several lenses around all the time. I use the Sony NEX 5n for most of my everyday shooting, but my longest zoom lens for that only goes to 200m.
Summary: My husband has the black Sony 30V and loves it. When I've tried to use it, it's hard for me to read the dials as the contrast on the black camera exterior is lost. I decided on the Sony 50V silver model which restores the contrast with the buttons and dials. I won't go into a review of the camera itself as you can find plenty here already. Before I ordered the silver model, I called Sony directly.
Summary: Excellent pocketable camera that takes great photos with plenty of detail and high IQ. Highly recommended! We used two of them on a recent long vacation and ate very pleased with their performance in all regards.
Not the most compact, but the best "do it all" travel camera

Summary: Barely fitting under the description of pocket camera, I bought this camera as an all purpose travel camera: one I could put in a pouch on my belt, having a useful flash, long zoom range (the longest for a pocket camera: 30X), full HD video, and extra features like 10 shots per second, panorama shots and more. For those that have or had the Sony DSC HX9V, you will find this camera a distinct upgrade!
