Sony Cyber-shot HX200V Digital Camera Review
Sony stands by a successful superzoom design, but goofs up by cramming it with too many megapixels.
Effects, Filters, and Scene Modes
By our count, the HX200V has 9 Picture Effect modes and 16 scene modes.
GPS is built into the HX200V for geotagging (theoretically a non-GPS HX200 could be available, but we've never heard of it). We spent a couple minutes testing it out, but not scientifically. It's the same experience we've had with most other GPS-enabled cameras: Finding a signal in a crowded urban area is possible, but takes time. You'll have much better luck in wide-open areas. And it absolutely ruins the battery life.
The HX200V can capture sweep panoramas (just press the shutter and pan the camera) in any direction. It doesn't accommodate 360-degree panoramas the way that many top-notch cameras do, but you can still capture a fairly wide field of view.
