Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX100V Digital Camera Review

Sony's HX100V shocked us with an amazing color accuracy score, but can one test carry an entire camera?

$449.99

Introduction

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.
