Digital Still Camera Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9 16.2 MP Exmor R CMOS review

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V is a compact superzoom some muscle characteristics, including a 16.2-megapixel sensor and a long lens with 16x zoom. It will be released in April for around £ 340. We just got our gloves HX9V, and here are our first impressions.

Sweet sixteen

With a 16x optical zoom, HX9V could be a decent choice if you often try to photograph things from afar. Zoom mechanism worked quite quickly and we were pleased with the stability of images taken at maximum zoom setting - we have not noticed any blurring that can be a problem with this type of camera.
We were not playing in the final HX9V, then the quality of the images may change before the camera is released, but we were still impressed by the photos we took. They looked sharp and colorful. Camera at this price, anything less than picture quality really spiffing count on our anger.

Small packages

Anyone familiar with TZ8 superzoom compact as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10, or sitting at home with the HX9V. This great little snapper is light enough to wear all day, a moderate weight 215g. Of 105 by 59 by 34 mm, it is also thin enough to fit in a pocket and still leave room for a mobile phone.

On the right side of the camera is a large slab of adhesion HX9V who will not slip out of your reach. We found that the camera is not uncomfortable to hold, in spite of bricks. We were also impressed by the flash, which is housed in the upper left corner of the camera and appears as a submarine periscope when needed.

We have only a minor reference in terms of design, although a little more may appear once the camera is at a complete overhaul. Our complaint is that the zoom lever on top of the camera feels quite uncomfortable. It's small and sharp, it might be a bit painful for the fingers, especially if you're shooting in cold conditions, like us.

Smart snappers

The HX9V have lots of gadgets. A Smart Auto automatically selects the right scene mode based on shooting conditions. There is also an "automatic mode higher, which mainly adds high dynamic range effects to your images if you shoot in low light. We found this state has done its job quickly and happy we did not have to wait years before we can take the next shot.

GPS technology will let you know where your photos were taken and there is a 3-inch LCD screen on the back of the camera device. There is no viewfinder, but there is a button dedicated to video capture images quickly.

The HX9V can take pictures in 3D. As he has two goals, take two pictures at different focal points, and so the device assemble them into a single image. There is a wide range of modes of 3D shooting, including one that lets you take panoramic 3D pictures, but you can not see the 3D images on the camera itself - you need to win the HX9V up a 3D compatible TV or laptop and the carrying of certain specifications asshole.

We are skeptical about whether these 3D features will produce something interesting to put on silly glasses. Nevertheless, we give the camera the full review treatment until we eliminate these features on.


If the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V can make when it comes to image quality, which could prove worthy competitor Lumix DMC-TZ20, the latest offering re-called super-zoom field of Panasonic. Stay tuned for the full review.
