Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V

 

How does Sony's latest 16.2MP entry to the travel compact market shape up against the competition?

Build quality ; Image quality ; Ease of use

Restricted aperture control ; No Raw shooting ; Expensive

The HX9V is an outstanding travel compact, albeit one with a somewhat premium price tag. It’s easy to use, feels great in the hand and delivers fantastic image quality – especially when used in Sony’s proprietary Intelligent Auto and Superior Auto...

Sony Cybershot HX9V review

 

Does the Sony Cybershot HX9V digital compact camera really offer DSLR-like quality?

Packed with features ; Good travel zoom ; Built-in GPS and 3D

Need to add a 3D TV ; Broader than rivals ; GPS weak when indoors

Sony Cyber-shot HX9V

 

Sony's Cyber-shot HX9V doesn't mess about. This 16x optical zoom compact has a bevy of features under the hood – making it a gadget fan's ideal camera. With nearby competitors like the Lumix TZ20 and Fuji F550EXR the Sony has various ways to stand out...

Excellent zoom range, decent pictures, GPS, affordable, well built & good finish

No Aperture or Shutter Priority, menus can be a little slow to react

The Cyber-shot HX9V is an excellent compact camera that leaves little to be desired. It’s rare to find a compact that doesn’t fall down at one or two hurdles, but this is Sony at its finest. The camera is easy to use, quick to focus, offers bags of...

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V review

 

We have a new favourite point-and-shooter, and it's this, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V. We love it more than any compact camera ever, including our previous favourite, the DSC-HX7V. There are two main reasons we like it so much. The first is that it's...

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V review

 

Premium 16MP compact camera claims a DSLR-like performance

Plenty of manual and auto options ; Broad lens range ; Built in GPS and 3D adds to future-proof feel

Tiny backplate buttons ; Large body ; Need a 3D TV for 3D images ; GPS struggles to find signal indoors

Looking for one compact 'travel zoom' camera that does it all? If you haven't had your head turned by the workmanlike reliability of Panasonic's TZ series, such as the Panasonic Lumix TZ20, nor sports car exterior and gimmicky triple-action sensor of...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V (Black) review

 

Editors' note: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V was replaced for Sony's 2012 Cyber-shot lineup by the HX30V and HX20V . The HX9V is still available, however, so if you're not sure if you should spend the extra money to get the new HX30V, here are reasons...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V is overflowing with shooting features, and has excellent photo and video quality and solid shooting performance.

The HX9V might actually be too much camera for some users and there are a couple of minor design issues.

Feature junkies in search of a compact megazoom should get the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V review

 

Two years ago, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V's 16X-optical-zoom lens would have been enough to turn heads. In today's world of ever-shrinking cameras with ever-expanding zoom ranges, that zoom lens is simply one of this camera's many distinguishing...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V holds a lot of appeal for photographers who won't mind a camera that does things differently from the norm. If you're willing to trade away RAW shooting, aperture-priority mode, and shutter-priority mode for a range of...
