Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V Digital Camera Review$449.99
Canon PowerShot SX40 HS Comparison
Panasonic's LUMIX FZ150 is currently our favorite ultrazoom camera. And although that distinction seems to change daily, the HX100V will not be dethroning it today.
By and large, these two contenders offer nearly identical performance with only two exceptions: Sony has better color accuracy, and Panasonic has better handling of noise. Otherwise, scores are neck and neck.
A purchase decision will likely come down to what type of shooter you are. If your most common subjects are people, you'll benefit most from the realistic color accuracy and studio-style features of the HX100V. If landscape and scenery shooting is more your style, look to the FZ150 for versatility and more detailed images at higher ISOs.
