Hello, I am looking for a new compact camera to replace my Sony DSC HX20V, I dont like to travel with a huge camera so I keep looking for compact fully loaded camera. I know I never going to get the full experience of a DSLR camera but at least something close. I am going to Iceland next month and I am looking for a camera. On my list I have Sony DSC HX90V, Lumix TZ80, any advice?or what other compact camera is good besides this two.
I just bought a HX60V camera. I'm a complete beginner when it comes to photography, so I only use the 'automatic' function when taking photos. For some reason, every photo taken with the HX60v appears in the display over-exposed (I'm not sure if I'm using the term correctly, but there's too much light and everything looks white). A second later, the photo then 'readjusts' itself and the colours look a little less bright.Does anyone know why this occurs with every photo taken with this camera?...

Hi, When I used to connect my HX20V camera and my Sony HD camcorder to my computer via usb, the camera model name would appear in the 'Devices with removable storage' section in 'my computer'. All of the pictures and video files were sorted in folders with the dates on which they were taken. For example, after connecting them, two drives would appear called 'Sony HX20V' for my camera and 'Sony HDR150' for my camcorder. If a photo was taken on the 6th of July, it would be stored in a folder...
Hello, i looked everywhere but couldn't find : how is aperture control on the hx60? Is that like on HX20v (only 2 settings, like 3 & 8) or is it like on RX100 (lots of choice between its range)? I read people saying it's hard since there's no ring control, but turning the button wheel seems fine to me..?
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!
