Hands-on with the Sony Cyber-shot HX30V
Hey there I'm Josh Goldman senior editor for CNET and this is a look at the Sony cyber shot HX.
It's the follow up to the HX nine V an excellent and extremely popular sixteen X compact mega -- from 2011.
-- at thirty XV is just as good but with a longer twenty excellence.
It's still loaded with all kinds of shooting options from full auto to full manual.
And you get things like adjustments for contrast saturation -- Different color modes manual focus all kinds of stuff.
Just no raw capture and fortunately.
You also get built in GPS and Wi-Fi. Which lets you wirelessly back up to a computer sent to your Smartphone word view -- the Wi-Fi enabled TV.
If the wireless stuff doesn't appeal veto look for the HX twenty V which is the same camera but without the Wi-Fi.
Photo and video quality are excellent as is its shooting performance it's a very quick camera with -- very fast auto focus.
About the biggest problem I have with -- it is its price and two other front runners in category the Canon SX 260 chest.
And Panasonic easiest twining can be found for up to about a hundred dollars less.
They don't have the exact features of the text -- -- but they're close enough that the price difference is substantial.
Nevertheless if you have the money and this is a great camera I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Sony cyber shot -- -- --
