Introduction

The Cyber-shot HX9V stands as our best travel zoom camera of 2011, so when Sony's new HX10V arrived in the office last week, we couldn't wait to dive in and test it out. This iteration obviously bears the same "V" designation as its predecessor and many other Sony cameras, which signifies GPS capability. Zoom ratio still maxes out at a respectable 16x, but megapixel count has been upped to 18.2. Yet the test results weren't quite what we expected, meaning the HX10V might not be the blockbuster sequel we were hoping for.
