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?

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.
