Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V (Black) review

 

On the surface -- and even a little beneath it -- the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V is the same as its predecessor, the HX100V . It has the same 30x zoom lens, 3-inch ultrahigh-resolution tilting LCD, and controls and shooting options, including manual...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V is a fast-shooting megazoom with excellent photo and video quality for its class, and plenty of shooting options to make casual and advanced shooters happy.

The HX200V lacks advanced bridge camera features like raw image capture, a hot shoe, or mic input. Some of its shooting modes and general operation can get confusing if you want to do more than leave it in auto.

A lot of camera, both in lens and features, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V is a solid choice for point-and-shoot users looking to do a little more than that.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V ($479) is a high-end superzoom camera that does just about everything imaginable. Whether you're talking about its built-in GPS, 360 degree panorama maker, 10 fps burst shooting, instant HDR photos, or 1080/60p videos,...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V is a super zoom camera that has virtually every bell and whistle ever created. And for the most part, that's a good thing. The HX200V is a fairly large camera, and made mostly of plastic. Construction is solid, though the...

Sony Cyber-shot HX200V

 

A decent superzoom, but the competition is too stiff for us to recommend the Sony HX200V.

Bottom line: pass on the HX200V

Good photo quality, if you don't look too closely ; Massive 30X, 27 - 810 mm zoom lens ; Optical image stabilization, with 3-way "active mode" for movies ; Articulating 3-inch LCD display with 921k pixels and good outdoor visibility ; Handy manual...

Overall, the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX200V is a very good super zoom camera. Its photo quality isn't as good as I'd like, but for the majority of people who will buy it, the smudged details that you'd see when viewing the photos on your computer will just...
