Sony Cyber-shot HX50V (Black)


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V combines two things a lot of people are after in a compact camera: a pocketable body and a long zoom lens.

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V is the smallest, lightest camera with a 30x zoom. It has a large assortment of shooting options, direct control over exposure compensation, and excellent photo and video quality for its class. A Multi Interface Shoe lets you...

Despite the additional manual controls and Multi Interface Shoe, the HX50 lacks a couple of things enthusiasts value: a large sensor and raw capture. The flash, mic, and viewfinder accessories are expensive. A slow lens limits its usefulness indoors.

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V is an excellent compact megazoom suitable for snapshooters and enthusiasts, though the latter might be turned off by some aspects of the camera.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90


Sony's least expensive entry to the travel zoom category, the H90 is the same size as the HX10 but still relies on a CCD sensor rather than CMOS. It's quite a bit larger than its predecessor, the H70, but gains a more impressive 16x zoom with 24mm...

"Best Camera Ever!"


First off, I am an amatuer photographer. I'm not ready to move up to a DSLR, and I don't do any post-processing other than cropping and red-eye removal. Sometimes I take photos that look like they could have been taken by a professional photographer. I...

Image quality is sharp and crisp

LCD screen is almost useless in bright sunlight

"Much better than my previous digital cameras."


I have used only the intelligent auto mode so far, but it recognizes closeups, night scenes, portraits, and landscapes extremely well. The camera focuses much sharper and faster while using long telephoto zooms.

It is too easy to inadvertently push the video button while holding the camera to take a picture.

So far so good


Will use this on a trip to California later this month for landscape photos.

Ease of operation ; ability to understand the basic functions ; Great detail on long range non-mobile shots

None so far, but not too crazy about the sounds of functions
