|18.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated Exmor® R CMOS Image Sensor |
The 18.2MP Exmor® R CMOS sensor captures ultra-high definition images that take full advantage of the camera's sharp Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens. The sensor enables advanced processing that reduces noise levels resulting in stunning low light images with incredible details.
High speed AF
To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor® R CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput to deliver high-quality image signals to the camera's BIONZ® processor. The result is fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds, even in low light.
Optical zoom plus Clear Image zoom
Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos.
Full HD 1080/60p
Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60p in 1080.1 This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV.2 With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.
Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with 3-way Active Mode
Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization reduces shake and blur by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths.
GPS and Compass
GPS and compass record location data and camera direction as you shoot movies and photos. GPS Log lets users track a photographic journey and later view the path and images on a map. Map View in PlayMemories Home™ software, allows users to view images on a map showing where they were taken. The logged path and images can also be displayed on Google Earth.4
Capture the decisive moment
more expressive photos
Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Select camera models have up to nine different effects.
Photo Creativity allows you to fine-tune your exposure settings, such as brightness, color, and vividness, and quickly choose the right enhancement for your subject. Now you can view Picture Effects and Photo Creativity effects in real time on the camera's monitor or in the viewfinder before shooting.
DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on the subject. Now our point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear.
Intelligent Sweep Panorama™
With Intelligent Sweep Panorama™ HR mode just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a high resolution panoramic image providing the ability to zoom in on small details. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion.
Superior Auto mode
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using backlight correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology. Superior Auto intelligently detects 33 scenes for still images and movies, making it easy to get the best shot.

Top customer reviews
It starts fast, focuses quickly, does not have shutter lag and is easy to handle and has tons of functions. It handles well for its size and does not feel heavy. Having the zoom on the side of the lens is great - makes it more stable to hold the camera. I've taken some pretty amazing shots with it - the zoom allows good creativity and the low light capability produces detailed and pleasing shots. How much different this camera is to the previous model I'm not really sure in terms of the additional megapixels via the new sensor. My previous camera was a Olympus E620 DSLR - in comparison there is less detail with the Sony, although not hugely noticeable on a 23" LCD computer monitor. The camera is a lot of fun to use and it just begs you to be more creative when shooting. The partial colour shots are great. The LCD screen is very good, nice and bright. Nice touch to use the optical viewfinder and have the screen turn off. The built in user manual is great - to look up what a function does without having to refer to the manual. Also when you find what you want it provides the option to go to that function right away - so for example I wanted to look at the ND filter function, once I've read what it does I can then select to open the function from the help screen rather than exiting help and then trying to find it through the menu system.
It provides good flash coverage and the slow-sync function is great to prevent those deer in the headlights shots - as this flash can put out a lot of light.
The superior auto mode is good for the stability/less blur in long range shots as it takes multiple photos and apparently works out which is the best photo to save. This is great as at maximum zoom the camera shake from your hands can be a problem if you've ever experienced using a megazoom before. Personally without that image stabilisation and multi-shot taking having a megazoom is a bit pointless as you'd never take good photos at long range without frustration.
Shooting movies and the ability to shoot a good sized still at the same time is very impressive - probably one of the best features - as I've always wanted to be able to take a high MP shot during a video shoot because that's when you typically need it and on other cameras it was always one or the other but not both at the same time. The video quality is very good. No issues there and the zoom works well when videoing. The microphone does pick up background noise around the camera (ie from people talking nearby) and without a zoom mic option is somewhat limiting. That said the audio capture is good.
Other good things - HDR - similar function to my iPhone 4S - produces good highlighting without overcooking the photo. When it is taking multiple photos with HDR and other functions it takes a few seconds time to process and save these but I guess thats normal. The menu system is good - particularly given how many functions this camera has.
I use it with a Sandisk 32GB Extreme 32GB SDHC Flash Memory Card (Class 10). Seems fine to use - saves quickly. It is probably better to get higher spec cards like this one if shooting HD video.
On the downside... the lens cap can get stuck if you don't remove it before turning the power on. Flash - there's no button to pop it up as per usual cameras - you need to use the jog dial and select flash to get it to pop-up. Once set it then pops up the flash when needed. The LCD screen doesn't fully articulate but that is not a major for me.
In summary it will never please the pro's out there - the image quality is very good but not perfect. Good enough for most people wanting the "best for me" rather than "best in the world" class of camera - its affordable, has huge capabilities, more than acceptable image quality and fun. A family orientated camera for sure that everyone can pick up and use and get pleasing results (and compliments).
There is a link to a few photos in the comments section (all handheld shots, no photo editing). Have added some more photos - very pleased with the colour accuracy.
A bit more on zooming in photo or video mode and focusing speed which is typically an issue with superzooms. To me the Sony seems quick to focus at maximum zoom in photo or video mode. We're certainly not talking more than a half a second to a second say from one subject to another at the far end of the zoom. It's quick and smooth with no hunting zoom noises. Would be nice if someone else reviewed this camera to concur!
very happy with it, but I felt it was time for change.
I read reviews from everywhere I could, from camera experts to everyday people, I decided on looking at five
cameras, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V, Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR, Nikon COOLPIX P510,
Panasonic DMC-FZ150K, and Canon SX40 HS.
I decided if I was spending $400 to $500 on a camera I was going to try them out in stores first. I like to buy things
online, but I don't like returning items, so off to the local shops.
First I'll have to say that I drove about 90 miles to look at cameras. Unfortunately I couldn't find 2 cameras, the
Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR or the Panasonic DMC-FZ150K no one carried either one.
I played around with the other 3 cameras quite a bit, all were very nice and I don't think I would have gone
wrong with any of them. It was little things that made me pick the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V. The Canon
had I smaller screen and auto focus seem to struggle at times, plus 2 different sales people told me if you buy
a Canon get the extended warranty, although I don't see any issues like that in any reviews. The Nikon was nice but
it seemed to miss a good shot more often, whether taking to long to focus or a little blurry.
The Sony seemed to focus fast and get the shot way more often and the 3 inch screen was nice.. I have now
owned this camera for a week and can't stop taking pictures and video. I have tried to put this camera in every
situation possible and it has worked every time. So far I've taken pictures at my son's tennis meet, other son's
band concert, portraits, the dogs, flowers, landscape, low light, no light, bright light, very close, full zoom, burst modes
and couldn't be happier. The video is great , I still can't believe how smooth and detailed the video, I took of my sons
band concert, holding the camera by hand no tripod and at half to full zoom.
I am an amateur photographer that takes about 100 to 1000 pictures a week and have for 15 to 20 years,
we have had more cameras than I can count, including SLR - DSLR, point and shoot, and video cameras.
As with every camera there are a few cons, The viewfinder is not very good, but I love that the camera switches
to it automatically when you go to look through it. Also no Raw image, my last camera had it and I was just starting
to learn how it use it in editing. 29 minute video length limit? I don't know if that will ever be an issue, but why the limit.
And I've never seen this on a point and shoot camera, but why can't we turn off the picture preview and have a live
view all the time, it would be much easier to follow the action whether in burst or single shot mode.
I am very happy with this camera, and I can live with the few cons I found, Thanks for reading, hope this helps.
