I just sold my Canon Digital Rebel XTi with two add-on lenses (24-70 Tamron and 60-300 Soligar) in order to "downsize".  I was going to buy either the Fuji FinePix 1000 or the Sony DSC-HX300, but then found a good deal on the Sony DSC-HX200V. Thus far, I like it a lot.  The ability to have a camera for travel and pro-sumer photos that also shoots HD video is great.  Having a lot more zoom is also a big benefit to me.  In fact, this camera has almost too many internal features I'll never use, ...

I've been using this camera for 6 weeks now. I love for being an all-purpose point and shoot. There's a clear division of labour: I'm in charge of composing the shot. The camera does the rest. That's fine with me. Pros: - Good image quality, but not as good as a DSLR or the interchangeable lenses series. - Very fast response (start-up, shot to shot, etc). - Fast, accurate autofocus. - Great low-light performance. I barely use the flash. In a 10 days holiday to Berlin I've only used the ...

For the most part I love this camera. It's simple to use in full auto mode, has enough features to satisfy anybody who wishes to do all their own settings. The zoom length is a major plugs. I know there are some with up to 50x zoom, but, really??? And this one will go to 60x with clear image, so it's totally more than anyone could use. Got a great price on it at my local Best Buy. Total of $400 out the door. I see it on Amazon right now for $366 w/free shipping and no tax!! Video is ...

Bought this in late September for a trip to Australia for the Coral Sea Solar Eclipse of November 2012, so it has seen quite a few miles an about 4,000 images. Previous camer was a Canon XSi + 18-200 Sigma lens. Reasons for purchase were three-fold: 1) with the release of the T4i Canon wasn't going to give me the GPS that is soooo useful/handy/functional if you do a lot of travel shooting 2) a light camera with an optical viewfinder for travel 3) video...maybe. The basic conclusion is that I ...

Me and my partner are going on Safari in Kenya iin July and wanted a camera that has a great zoom function. We tested all over zoom cameras in the range and this camera seemed everything for what we needed. We did think of getting a a DSLR camera but they where more than we wanted to spend and adding a zoom lense would of made the price even more expensive. We picked this up from Amazon for £388, roughly £100 cheaper than the sony shop! We have been testing the camera in are local park and ...

They are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/78333060@N04/7020066659/ I'm very pleased with it but probably not for photography aficionados... Problems: The usual... no RAW, lens cap like the HX100V, flash ...

This model is has one the best censor for doing in low light photography. For those who are looking to do high zoom photography should defiantly take this. The image quality is awesome, all the defocusing feature is like a low end DSLR. Features wise it's is great. It has in-built HDR and 1080p recording which is best among competitors. Also it's better in taking exposure photos and high ISO images above 1000. Problems: It Lacks RAW format shooting.. Sony should add this feature by updating ...
