Sony is picture perfect,
This review is from: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V 18.2 MP Exmor R CMOS Digital Camera with 16x Optical Zoom and 3.0-inch LCD (Black) (2012 Model) (Electronics)
It's a Sony. The HX10 is a great point and shoot camera. It is impressive and feature packed. The specs are well documented. This takes Great Pictures! You will love this camera.
The 16x optical zoom can go to 32x with digital zoom. You get 18.2 megapixel sensor. High def 1080i videos look awesome. This is why you want this over a cell phone camera.
The Ion Lithium battery can take 320 pics. Great battery life but I recommend a spare battery and charger available on Amazon. Note: The battery can also be charged in the camera with supplied cable.
The camera is well built and solid made in Japan by Sony.
This camera will make you forget about buying a DLSR.
You won't go wrong purchasing this camera. It is a good value.

Hi! I just purchased the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V camera. Is the only way that the battery can be recharged is with the adapter plugged to the wall outlet and using the USB cable hooked to the camera? In other words, it has to be recharged through the camera? I'd like to know if there's a way that the battery can be recharged without being hooked up to the camera? Is this possible? Thanks if someone has an answer or suggestion.

Hi. There is an external charger that is available on Amazon. I prefer to charge spare battery in wall socket instead of using cable. Sony makes a wall charger for their battery. I bought cheap off brand but did not work. Buy the Sony brand. I use non Sony spare battery that works fine.

I'm disappointed - I got the white camera and mine is made in China. (edited to add: the white camera was returned within 30 days as it developed a problem with the on/off button not working). I got my replacement camera in RED, it's made in Japan. And the red is stunning.

Hi Robert. Thanks for the information. You're absolutely right about buying a wall charger directly from Sony. I purchased one from an Amazon vendor (not Amazon) and it didn't fit. I should have know since it was only $19. But advertisement said it was suppose to fit the Sony NP-FG1 battery. Be careful when buying cheap memory chip. They often will lose our pictures (it actually is in the inner core of the memory chip but unless you go to a lab, you can't see or retrieve those shots). It happened to me while on vacation. A question for Robert and others: If you have a Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V camera, have you had problems with indoor photos coming out yellowish. For some reason a set of photos I took indoors turned out yellowish (the walls as well as the facial features weren't the right color, too yellow). Anyone have that experience? What can be done about it? Thanks.

I highly doubt any of these colors were made in Japan, at least not at this price point. A Big Mac in Japan circa ~1995 was $13 and that was without anything else (or so I heard from someone who was stationed there).

Panasonic makes a lot of their cameras in Japan - even the ones priced at much lower price than this Sony. About a year ago I bought a ZS9 Panasonic for $129 and it was made in Japan. Maybe Sony is different though.
Edited to add: Today I received my replacement Sony camera. I chose a red camera as my replacement, this camera was made in Japan. :)
