Sony Cyber-shot HX200V reviews:

The backlight correction HDR (high dynamic range) feature combines three exposures and puts them into a single image with much improved dynamic range. The Sony HX200V shoots the burst quickly that a tripod is not needed. More about such details you can learn from the Sony Cyber-shot HX200V review on dpreview.com website.

The experts from techradar.com notes that the EVF of HX200V has a built-in eye sensor that activates the display when it detects the pupil of the eye, and turn it off when you move away.

Another short Sony HX200V review comes from whatdigitalcamera.com website. You can read on this website more details about design, features and performance of Sony HX200V.

Sony HX200V lens detail


The Sony HX200V offers the impressively broad light sensitivity range option of captures between ISO 100 and ISO 12800. This camera offers an incredibly versatile focal range and handled chromatic aberrations well, with some purple fringing present around the edges of objects in high-contrast situations. You can learn more about image quality if you read the Sony HX200V review from photographyblog.com website. The experts of this website conclude:

 As an all in one with ‘DSLR lite’ style handling that really does offer most, if not all, of what you need – and delivers consistently high image quality – the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V takes some beating if a big zoom really is chief among your imaging requirements.


Video quality is good in the HX200V. The one touch video button initiates capture promptly. The microphone can be sensitive to wind noise but there is a wind cut feature that may be enabled. More about these things you can find on digitalcamerareview.com.
