Sony HX90

 

The Cyber-shot DSC-HX90 is Sony's latest travel compact. It offers an amazing 30x zoom range in a body that will easily slip into your pocket.

Compact, high-quality frame ; Super-versatile lens

Limited dynamic range at higher ISO ; No RAW support ; Noisy, low-detail images at higher ISO

Sony HX90V review

 

The HX90V is the world's smallest 30x zoom compact camera with a viewfinder

30x zoom range ; Tilting screen ; Manual control

No raw shooting ; No touchscreen ; Low light performance could be better

On paper this looks like a great travel zoom camera and it feels very nice in the hand. The viewfinder is a real bonus when shooting in bright light. The HX90V is a solidly performing all round travel compact camera that offers a lot but doesn't...

Sony CyberShot HX90, HX90v review - hands on

 

Sony's latest premium compact, the CyberShot HX90, also has a travel zoom companion - the WX500

There's currently no indication of UK prices for either the HX90/HX90V or the WX500, but early US prices suggest the former could retail for around £290 before tax and VAT, while the latter could cost around £225 plus VAT. Considering the Panasonic...

Sony Cyber-shot HX90V Review

 

Reviewed: The HX90V - A master of miniaturisation, with a 30x optical zoom lens, built in pop-up EVF, GPS, Wi-Fi, and tilting screen.

Good exposure and colour ; Extremely compact camera ; 30x optical zoom lens ; Built in electronic viewfinder (EVF) ; Excellent optical image stabilisation system ; Tilting 3inch screen ; Fast continuous shooting ; Good battery life ; Electronic level

Noise visible in images taken at ISO80 ; More expensive than the competitors ; Some corner softness

The Sony Cyber-shot HX90V is one of the most compact 30x optical zoom lens cameras available and even packs in an electronic viewfinder making it great for use on bright sunny days. The HX90V is priced at £349 making it more expensive than the...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX90V

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX90V has an incredible zoom range and an excellent EVF, but its images suffer when the light gets low.

Sharp, 30x zoom lens. Quick focus. Compact design. Excellent pop-up EVF. Solid control layout. Sharp, tilting rear LCD. 10fps burst capture. GPS. Wi-Fi.

Images suffer at high ISO. No Raw support. Long delay after burst shooting. Lacks continuous autofocus setting for still images. Pricey.

Performance and Conclusions Like most compact cameras with long zoom lenses, the HX90V takes a while to turn on. It does so in about 2 seconds, which is slower than the 1.4-second mark managed by the Panasonic ZS50. Focus, however, is very quick; at...

Claiming "world's smallest" honors, the new Cyber-shots are only 102mm wide but have 24-720mm lenses and one even has a pop-up viewfinder.

Sony shows just how much camera it can cram in your pocket with 30x zoom HX90V, WX500

 

When Sony released the Cyber-shot HX50V in 2013, it was the world's smallest and lightest camera with a 30x zoom lens. Now, two years later, it's back with the HX90V and WX500, which reclaim the title.

The Sony Cyber-shot HX90V will be available in June for $430/AU$599 (that converts to about £300). If you want to save yourself $100, the WX500 is the same as the HX90V minus the viewfinder and GPS. It will be out in June, too, for $330 or AU$479...
