I have owned each of the HX series since version HX5V and the low light performance just kept getting better. (I also owned several Panasonics - the Sony HX of the same generation always did better in low light.) Owners of the HX5V may remember low light was the selling point of the HX series. The best one is my HX20V(18.2mp), absolutely superb low light performance, both in picture quality and autofocus relilability. Then I got the HX50V (20.4mp) and like many other users, I found it had...

When I select Aperture Priority Shooting, or Shutter Speed Priority Shooting, or Manual Exposure Shooting on the dial at the top of my Sony Cybershot HX50 camera, I cannot actually change the aperture or shutter speed. When I press the "down" button, I get the message "This operation or setting not available as follows" followed by "Aperture Priority Shooting", "Shutter Speed Priority Shooting" etc. Is it possible to change the aperture and shutter speed on this camera?

Hello, I am new to the forum and have a question about my 6 month old HX50V. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 times to get it to turn on, it throws a message Turn camera off and on again, sometimes 2 or 3 times with a black background. I reset but it didn't help. Has anybody had this problem? Thank's, Roger.

I guess I am menu challenged.  Are there any guides for the settings in the Sony DSC HX5v., other than the PDFs put out by Sony? i need something with recommended settings and to help me to understand why settings seem to change (beside my thumb hitting the function buttons.) This camera is just the right size for my one handed shooting (holding the dogs leash in the other).  But I need to learn more about actually using it. --Lenhttp://lgrossman.com/pics/

Hello, I was thinking on some pocket camera to replace my old Olympus XZ-1 (normally I use Sony Alpha 580 with tons of lenses, so my bag is very heavy), like RX100 or Fuji XQ1. In the local shop I tested HX50 for a while and started to consider it. After reading positive review I think to change the decision. HX50 is comfortable in my hand. It has fast zooming lens (zooming in range of RX100 is much faster in HX50) and some other advantages. And is much cheaper. I was surprise about one...

I go to trade shows a number of times a year where items of various sizes (from small desktop items to large furniture sized items) are displayed in spaces ranging from small hotel rooms to hotel meeting rooms. I've been using a Canon G9 for many years and it's served me pretty well but I've since come to the conclusion I need some refinements in a camera I'd use. The first is a wider lens. I need to get to 24 or 26mm I think, for being able to get all of a cramped display of larger items...

Hi, A friend of mine has a HX50v and her camera seems to work ok except when shooting video. The LCD's (and recordings) are extremely dark when recording video. I tried to check the settings and tried to adjust exposure via the exposure button, but that does not do anything. Does anyone have a solution? Or is this a case of RMA? Thanks for the answer! - Remy.

Hi, I'm helping a friend with setting up her camera. Since I'm not familiar with the Sony camera (I (have) owned some pocket Pannys) and I know you can get a lot more out of a camera by not using IAuto all the time, I'm looking for some good general P/A (S/M) settings for the following situation: - Most of the time she will have bright light conditions (travelling to Africa).- She will probably want to make (small/large) wildlife shots.Also, how good is the Panorama mode in the Sony? In my...
