First Look: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V

1:23 /

Sony continues to crank out nice compact cameras with long zoom lenses and the Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V is no exception.

Hey there. I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor with CNET. And this is a look at the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX10v. And it's one of several compact long-lens cameras in Sony's 2012 lineup and one of two packing a 16x ultra wide angle lens. The other being the H90. Other features include this nice 3 inch display on back, built in GPS, full HD movie capture at the push of a button, and many many shooting options. That includes easy controls for adjusting brightness color or vividness or applying some high-quality filters. Well overall, I really like the camera. There are some things to keep in mind. Many of it's shooting options require multiple shots and extra processing time. You'll get better shots in the end but you do have to wait a second or two with each shot. Also, though its burst mode can shoot up to 10 frames per second, your left waiting for them to store up before you can shoot again. So yeah, it's not perfect. But for most people, no real deal breakers here either. And certainly worth putting on your shortlist for consideration. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Sony Cybershot HX10v.
