Sony Cyber-shot HX200V Digital Camera Review
Sony stands by a successful superzoom design, but goofs up by cramming it with too many megapixels.
The HX200V offers a wealth of video options, up to 1080/60p at 28MBPS in the AVCHD format. Two 1080/60i AVCHD quality options are available as well. It can also shoot the more edit-friendly MP4 format at 1080/30p, 720/30p, and VGA (standard-definition) quality.
Nothing usually considered to be manual control is available while shooting video with the HX200V aside from exposure compensation. Otherwise, it's all auto all the time, including focus.
Optical zoom is available while shooting video.
The HX200V has a built-in stereo microphone. Wind cut is available and audio levels can be controlled in playback, but that's the extent of the audio features.
