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...
Hello all, I'm in the middle of my vacation and decided to download the photos so far from my trusty HX20V to review and delete the best and worst. When i started i noticed that they were coming up quite small so clicked on the properties and they are all sized around 150KB although some panoramic shots i took are better at around 2.5MG. This is obviously not good. I have gone through all of the settings and they appear to be fine and I haven't changed anything since the last time i used it....
all right, I started another thread which was mystically deleted for some odd reason. :-x So I'll start another... I purchased a wx350 after seeing decent video on youtube and seeing people here liking it. I've got an HX20V, which I'm comparing it to. I returned the first wx350, thinking it was a fluke...the second one doesn't seem much (if any) better. I took pics/video in low light, and hit about 50/50 good/bad. They were just interior pics in a house with normal lighting. (I can't post...
There are two video stabilization options on this camera: "Standard" and "Active". I was wondering whether the active mode achieves greater stabilization by cropping video since I don't want to do that. Does Active mode degrades detail compared to Standard mode? And Standard mode is too weak BTW :-} Thanks!
HI, It's great to find this forum. In reviewing and looking into compact camera options, I think I have now narrowed it down to the Sony hx20v or hx50v. Most of my photos are wildlife, landscape, and macro shots of flowers, insects, etc. Of course the newer model (hx50v) has some improvements from last year's model, some of which are very appealing. However, the hx50v model can only focus to a minimum distance of 5cm, which is quite different than the capacity of the hx20v which focuses to a...
Hi, I would like to ask a question about these two cameras Sony DSC-HX20V and Sony DSC-HX10V. I am wondering which one to buy because I found the second one a lot cheaper. Is there any big diference except the optical zoom 20 vs 16. I would like my new camera to make good quality pictures, very good movie and to be easy to use. I am looking for good traveler camera. I would be very thankful if some of you help me with advice is there any reason to go for the expensive one Sony DSC-HX20V...
My new RX100 got its first concert try-out last night. I'm pretty happy with my still photos, or at least I know what I need to work on there, but I'm puzzled by what seems to be the exposure settings changing wildly on the videos. It happens primarily when I zoom in and out, but movement on the stage, like the frontman, Trombone Shorty, moving forward or back triggered it as well. I am using both Clear Zoom and digital zoom during the videos, and there may be a link there. I'm pretty sure I...
Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. Just wondering if anyone could give me a labelled diagram of the inside of an HX20V, because I am going to attempt to remove some annoying dust spots on the sensor and I need to know what to do after I have opened it up with a screwdriver. I know this is a risky process but all the alternatives cost a huge amount of money, more than a new HX20V in most cases. Here is a photo I took with the annoying spots showing:
