Sony Cyber-shot HX100V Digital Camera Review
Sony’s HX100V is an ambitious 30x ultrazoom with a tempting spec sheet. A 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, Full HD video shooting at 60p, high speed focus, articulating LCD, plus a GPS transceiver. But a camera is nothing without solid image quality and, to our delight, this model’s scores were just as strong as its feature set.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V
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.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V Review: Feature-Filled Megazoom Excels at Video
The Sony Cyber-shot HX100V ($450 as of September 2, 2011) is among the latter--a long-zoom camera with a larger body that resembles a small DSLR. Its 30X-optical-zoom lens is a few steps behind the 36X-optical-zoom Nikon Coolpix P500 and the 35X-optical-zoom Canon PowerShot SX30 IS in zoom range, but the HX100V offers other benefits that may ultimately make it more appealing than its rivals.

Sony Cyber-shot HX100V review
Is Sony's 30x optical zoom HX100V the superzoom market leader?
The Sony Cyber-shot HX100V updates the innovative HX1. A new sensor, 30x optical zoom and GPS all feature begging the question, is the Sony HX100V as good as superzoom cameras get?

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V digital camera
The superzoom market is expanding by leaps and bounds with every camera manufacturer out there launching their own point and shoot cameras with these zoom capabilities. This market is getting truly populated and giving consumers a plethora of options to choose from. These prosumer cameras are targeted at those who want an all-in-one camera featuring ultra zoom capabilities, HD video recording and stylish DSLR looks.

The good: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V is overflowing with shooting features, has excellent photo and video quality, and solid shooting performance for its class.
The bad: The HX100V might actually be too much camera for some users and it has a couple minor design issues.
The bottom line: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V has a lot of features and a lot of lens with photo and video quality that's just good enough to back up its hefty price tag.

Sony Cyber-shot HX100V review
The Sony Cyber-shot HX100V is a 16.2 Megapixel super-zoom camera with a 30x stabilized lens and a flip-up 3 inch LCD screen. Released concurrently with the Cyber-shot HX9V pocket super-zoom in February 2011, the HX100V shares the same Exmor-R back-illuminated CMOS sensor in a larger SLR-styled body with a much longer zoom range.

Sony Cybershot DSC-HX100V Review
About this time last year I fell upon a Sony DSC-HX5V compact digicam with great glee, buying one to use for my family picture making. It has since traveled with us on all our excursions, elegantly and easily recording our trips as HD movies.
Admittedly, there are a few hangups with it, mostly to do with the image stabiliser… it doesn’t like the camera to stay still!
So, it was with considerable interest that I wrapped my sticky fingers around this new model, eager to suss it out.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V review - Top performer of the 30x superzoom set?
The Sony Cyber-shot HX100V hits the shelves some 2 years following on from the original Sony HX1 model. The latter was the instigator of the “Sweep Panorama” (live panorama capture that’s auto-stitched in camera) craze, and the HX100V not only takes this a step further forward but amps up the features elsewhere too.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V
Having tested the HX100V, we're feeling positive about its 30x optical zoom. If the image quality is up to scratch, this could prove a great camera for those looking to take their first steps into pro-level photography.
Good: 30x optical zoom is promising, High-quality video recording, Adjustable LED screen
Bad: 3D features could prove gimmicky

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V hands-on
The new model’s key selling point is that it delivers a mind boggling 30x optical zoom in a camera that isn’t going to be “that” big or “that” heavy; “that” should give you plenty of chance to perv on your neighbours, and anyone else for that matter, from afar.
Thankfully, the camera comes with optical SteadyShot image stabilisation with Active Mode, which means that you won’t get a stack of photos that are all blurry because you’ve not been able to keep your hands steady - understandable at that magnification.
