Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V


Last year, we reviewed the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V and it was arguably one of the best travel compact cameras of the year. With the arrival of 2012, Sony has looked to up the ante and launch a successor to one of their hottest selling cameras of 2011,...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V is available in India at an MRP of Rs. 17,990. The camera offers really great outdoor and indoor images and the overall performance of the camera is on par with the model launched by Sony last year. The camera looks really...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V (Red)


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V combines two of Sony's compact megazoom cameras from 2011: the HX7V and the Editors' Choice-winning HX9V . Basically, it has the HX9V's body and 16x, f3.3-5.9, 24-384mm Sony G lens, but the controls and shooting options of...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V is a feature-filled compact megazoom with very good photo and video quality and a useful zoom lens.

The HX10V's 18-megapixel resolution is more about marketing than image quality. Many of its shooting modes require multishot processing, which slows you down and can't be used with moving subjects.

Sony continues to crank out nice compact cameras with long zoom lenses, and the Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V is no exception.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V


The successor to the highly-successful HX9, the HX10 seems to have lost some of the finesse that made the HX9 special. The specifications are even more impressive, an 18 megapixel sensor and 16x optical zoom, yet it's thicker and more utilitarian than...

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Fun to use; Fast burst mode and bracketing

Poor color accuracy; High noise levels

We hate when this happens! After a little over a week of shooting with the Sony HX10V, using all its systems and determining all it has to offer, we had a genuinely good time with the camera. Nothing earth-shattering, nothing outstanding even. But the...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V is an 18-megapixel digital camera with excellent image and video quality in a compact size. It has a strong zoom lens, but is slow due to in-camera processing. With a competitive price, it's a strong contender for your...

Awesome zoom/easy to use/blur proof


Consumer review by:

I've had a few compact cameras , this is the best.


This camera is GREAT! I've had Canons and Nikons, none compare to my Sony DCH-HX 10 V. Pictures and telephoto are great, flash pictures also very good. Also the camera is very well built. As you can see I love this camera.

Small, easy to use, Great telephoto and pictures

None so far
