The Sony Cyber-shot HX100V is the latest in a series of 'superzoom' cameras from Sony which are intended to combine the versatility and portability of compact cameras with a DSLR-like form factor and operational ergonomics. With the HX100V, Sony brings a host of new and updated features to its flagship superzoom model. The most obvious of these changes include a 16MP 'Exmor R' back-illuminated CMOS sensor, 30x optical zoom and full HD 1080p video capture. The HX100V mimics the form factor and handling of an entry-level DSLR in a package housing a 27-810mm equivalent zoom lens and a compact camera-sized 1/2.3" CMOS sensor.
An update to the Sony DSC-HX1, the HX100V stays true to its predecessor in terms of form and style. In fact, at first glance, it may be hard to tell the two cameras apart. The HX100V does, however, boast its share of changes, including a longer zoom range, more powerful flash, higher resolution LCD and a redesigned, though functionally similar menu interface. 'Under the hood', the HX100V shares a lot of features and functionality with the genuinely compact Sony DSC-HX9V, which we reviewed recently as part of our Compact Travel Zoom group test.
|Perhaps the most immediate physical distinction between the two cameras is the higher reach of the pop-up flash on the FZ150. The unit on the HX100V does have a higher flash guide rating (12.7m versus 9.5m at the wide end) than the FZ150.|
|From the top, we can see how similar the two cameras are in terms of operational ergonomics. The HX100V lacks a flash hotshoe mount, but includes both a focus selector button and custom button just behind the shutter release.
Although it has a longer telephoto range, the HX100V's zoom extends forwards slightly less than that of the FZ150.
|The HX100V is a few millimeters taller than the FZ150, has a significantly larger 4-way controller, and a higher resolution LCD (921,000 versus 460,000 dots).|
|With the rear hinge design of the HX100V's LCD, you frame the composition while looking directly behind the lens, which may feel more intuitive for some users. The fold-out screen on the FZ150 offers more flexible viewing angles when holding the camera in a portrait orientation.|
|The HX100V and HX9V offer similar functionality (including the same 16MP sensor) and features but in dramatically different form factors, as you can see from this comparison image.|
Just Posted: Studio comparison shots from the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 superzoom. We've had a DMC-FZ150 in our studio for a few days now and, as promised, have shot our standard test scene with it. The FZ150 replaces the FZ100 and incorporates a lower-resolution 12MP CMOS sensor that the company says will outperform its predecessor's 14MP chip. Like the FZ100 the FZ150 records Raw images, which we've also included in our studio comparison tool.
Just Posted: Studio comparison shots from the Sony DSC-HX100V. We've just got hold of Sony's latest superzoom, the 16.2MP HX100 and shot our standard test scene with it. It's built around the latest 1/2.3" (6.17 x 4.55mm) back illuminated CMOS sensor and offers a vast 27-810mm equivalent 30x zoom. Being Sony's top-of-the-range superzoom, it features a manual control ring that can be switched between controlling zoom and or manual focus. We also have one of its main rivals - the Panasonic DMC-FZ150 in the studio and will add that to the comparison tool as soon as we can.
