Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V Reviews

CNET reviews the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V and writes;
“The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V has a lot to offer. There are plenty of reasons to get out of auto mode here and overall the results are very, very good. It has a couple design issues and its best photos require some understanding of how the camera works. But, in general, it’s one to put on your short list.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V and writes;
“Contrary to our own scoring system, what we really loved about the HX10V was its ease of operation. Time to shot was quick, and between this and the aggressive optical stabilizer, the camera makes a good choice for general street shooting.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Expertreviews reviews the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V and writes;

Ephotozine reviews the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V and writes;
“Image quality is good, with good colour and exposure. Handling is good with a solid metal body and rubber grip. The camera offers reasonable value for money with high speed shooting and quick focus speeds, with good video performance as well.”

Photographyblog reviews the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V and writes;
“Add in the 3D Sweep Panoramas and 3D Still Images, amazing 10fps burst shooting mode, 0.13 second auto-focusing, extensive range of in-camera Picture effects and the high-resolution 921K dot LCD screen, and it’s easy for us to highly recommend the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V as a very capable and affordable travel-zoom camera.”
