Photo quality is very good. 30x zoom is very handy. And 10fps burst mode is great. However, there are some major drawbacks. No RAW. Poor quality in low-light situations. Inability to focus when using the zoom to capture a macro-like shot. And the operational performance is sluggish... switching between shooting modes, or between playback and shooting. Overall I've learned to work with the shortcomings, and the photos I've taken come out great. I just feel that I'm being limited and am being ...

Becoming a serious birdwatcher, I knew its time for a megazoom to satisfy myself..and how HX100V fits in like a glove!...to get 30x in a DSLR setup + lenses is just not economical for me at the moment...I bought this camera after researching / comparing /analysing whats in the megazoom market for about 2months.. I earlier had a Kodak Z8612IS for two years, which had good features for an amateur i am... first things first, i am very happy with the zooms and i do not disturb the perched birds ...

Had the camera for about a month now and have taken quite a few photos experimenting with all the different settings.I love the flexability and the great pictures it takes. Most photos are tken in either Manual or Aperture, but when I am just walking around and want to snap photos, the Superior is the best. I still have lots more to investigate. Fantastic super zoom. Problems: Try finding the Macro mode. The only way I can find accessing it is by using the Gourmet scene. They have no button, ...

If you r a professional and you need to use large prints of your images then you should not been here complaining about HX100V here and creating confusion. Go buy a dSLR. If you are not a professional and you want to do like pro then this toy is apt for you. I have been doing extensive research on Super zooms from all major Brands but none of them was an ALL-ROUNDER like HX100V. JUST LOOK AT THESE POINTS AND THINK OF OTHER COMPETITORS ON SAME POINTS > 1- the flash range of this camera is ...

I've had the Hx100v for several months now. At first, I didn't know if I'd take advantage of the 30-day return period or keep the thing. It wasn't a very big investment, especially compared to my Nikon D7000 and bag full of lenses! I was initially disappointed when I pixel-peeped my first efforts. As always, Sony's noise reduction and sharpening are both a bit heavy-handed, and not all that effective. The sharpening left edge artifacts, but didn't particularly sharpen the image. I considered ...

I needed a pocket camera to replace the good Panasonic Lumix TZ7 when I can't travel with my bag and the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and its lenses which are very heavy. So I bought a Sony DSC-HX5V which is too slow and only good for video HD. dpreview and some other forums showed me that it was actually quite difficult to get a good pocket camera. So even if what we call "bridge" in France is not pocket camera, I tested some bridges, first the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 which was interesting with its ...
