Editor's Review

Competing up there with the likes of Nikon's P510 and Panasonic's FZ150, the HX200V is competitive if not an outright homerun. Sony is never one to skimp on features, and the HX200V's fast 18.2 megapixel sensor, GPS tracker, and wireless functionality deliver in droves, but the camera is somewhat let down by its lens. While the lens should be the headliner on a superzoom camera, this one starts at a moderate 27mm and still falls short of the P5100's ridiculous 1000mm at the long end. Initial reviews have, however, been quite positive and have yet to find any real flaws in the HX200v. It looks like that new sensor is actually pretty good, besting its 16-megapixel predecessor at high ISOs while eking out a little extra detail (along with some more noise) in good light.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

For the past 30 years, Sony has taken the lead in the consumer electronics market. All Sony digital cameras reflect the company's devotion to implementing the latest technology paired with minimalist styling to produce high-quality compact digital cameras for casual users, hobbyists, and now professional photographers.

Sony's Latest Innovation in the Digital Camera Field

In September 2012, Sony announced the release of its latest camera, the Cybershot DSC-RX1. According to Sony, this is the first full-frame compact digital camera available. It features a 24.3 megapixel full-frame sensor attached to a capable 35mm f2 lens. This pocketable combination produces professional-quality photos in a package that's relatively small.

Two of the best Sony digital cameras of 2012 as indicated by consumer ratings include the following:

* Sony Cybershot HX30V: This Sony digital camera produces great photos and video in a very compact yet flexible package ideal for someone on the go. The 18.2 megapixel camera is known for its fast performance, including full HD video capture and very fast continuous burst mode, as well as features like a GPS tracker.
* Sony Cybershot HX200V: Its fast burst mode and very large 35x optical zoom has caused this model to be rated by consumers as one of Sony's best digital cameras. The lack of RAW capture makes it clear that Sony is aiming the camera at a more amateur market than a lot of the competition. Sony digital camera reviews have rated the HX200's image quality as good to excellent, with the video quality being one of the the best you can get.

Sony has a wide range of digital cameras suitable for photographers of any skill level, and reviews of most of the cameras offered by Sony can be found on this site. You will be totally happy with the end result regardless of which Sony digital camera you decide on.
