HX5 versus P200 shootout
Apr 2, 2010

I just picked up an HX5 and compared it to the Sony P200. I took all photos in the automatic settings on both cameras, and saved in the 5 MP mode of each camera, and all were hand held to represent real life conditions. On the HX5, I zoomed in slightly to match the slightly less wide angle of the P200 lens.

In about half the photos I thought the HX5 did better; in about half I thought the P200 did better. In this test overall I'd say the HX5 wins because of better dynamic range in some of the photos.

Note that in 5 MP mode (in-camera processing), both cameras produce sharp images.
