Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V Digital Camera Review

$349.99

Are a few design hang-ups enough to hold back this impressive camera?

Introduction

Sony is out for blood with their HX9V, a relatively expensive, high performance travel zoom that aims to be nothing less than the best camera in the category. Optical zoom has been upgraded to 16x, and it's likely Sony stuck with the same 16 megapixel sensor that powers their excellent HX100V, as well as this camera's predecessor, the HX7V.
