What are your thoughts about the HX50 as a "pocket" camera? Is it actually something you can keep with you, or do you find it too bulky? Do you wish you had a smaller camera than the HX50 sometimes? I see a few threads here, but most seem a bit old. Has anyone lived with the HX50 for a few months and have some thoughts? The long version if you feel like reading and chatting: I've been comparing cameras for a while and I'm down to the Panasonic ZS30 or the Sony HX50V. I was almost settled on...
For reasons unknown to me, my DSC-HX5V isn't able to obtain a focus lock in just about any situation short of taking pictures in full sunlight. When I push the shutter button half-way down, it should get a focus lock and/or use the AF illumination light to get the lock... but doesn't any more :-( I didn't drop the camera or damage it in anyway that I am aware of. I called Sony and it'll cost me $130.04 + shipping to get it fixed or they'll give me a 15% off coupon for a new camera. ...
I recently bought a Sony HX50. Like the camera, amazing zoom, good quality build, good features, fine stabilization. My question is: my shots look very good, but what is the general thought about the HX50 as far as quality of photo, is this too small of a sensor to produce quality shots? I need to figure out if it is a keeper- Many thanks, Krocket
Hello DP community. I am currently in the market for a "bridge camera". I am a beginner in photography and I am not planing becoming a guru in this field. Still, when I feel my "artsy" side roaring, I like to have a good device to rely on. I am planning to shot landscapes (both urban and natural), people, macros and black and whites. Photo light conditions will range from early morning to city lights and inside environments. I am also not planning to use the pictures I make for anything...
This is perhaps an unanswerable question, but I'm looking to upgrade from my battered Lumix DMC ZS5 (travel zoom, small sensor but a 12X 300mm equiv) while staying with a pocket size. While I understand cramming in pixels generally results in noise, do you think the big sensor and 20 megapix on the RX100 would mean that cropping could decently take the place of the extra zoom length? I take a lot of concert pictures (though not exclusively) and the long zoom is very useful for this, but would...
Hi Guys, A keen beginner here looking for some advice. I have had a Sony DSC-HX5 for around 3 years now as an all round point and shoot which has served me well. Looking to upgrade to a low end CSC and the Sony NEX 3N seems to fit the bill. Going on honeymoon in a week to Italy where the opportunity for some stunning photos is going to come up so need to make a decision. Ultimately looking for some advice from more experienced peeps if its worth it or stick with the HX5 for this once in a...
Hello to everyone, I'm trying to find a good compact camera that takes good photos in auto mode. Almost all cameras have smart auto mode now but on the other hand real performance in terms of deciding pre-defined settings and actual picture quality may not be so good. I've tried Olympus SZ-31MR, it's a nice and handy camera (I like the zoom) but the pictures taken in auto mode are not that good at the end of the day. So, I'm wondering if Canon SX280 (with new DIGIC 6 processor) or Sony HX30...
I currently have an HX5V with a 16gb Class 6 SDHC card. I am considering the purchase of a SONY HX200V. I will keep the HX5V for use when it is more appropriate, particularly the ability to keep it in a pocket. My question is Can the SD card be swapped between cameras ? e.g use the HX200V when out for the day then the HX5V when going to a restaurant in the evening. Any advice will be appreciated.
