Sony Cyber-shot HX200V Digital Camera Review
Sony stands by a successful superzoom design, but goofs up by cramming it with too many megapixels.
Chromatic aberration can be a big problem with long-range lenses, but like most top-tier superzooms, the HX200V actually controls the issue quite well. We spotted some purple fringing in high-contrast areas along the edges of the frame, but we didn't find to be to distracting. It's a non-issue, basically.
Again, high-zoom lenses should theoretically struggle with distortion problems, particularly barrel distortion at the wide angle. But in-camera correction has basically eliminated the problem from the HX200V, as well as most other superzooms. Another non-issue.
