Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX20V Super Zoom Compact Digital Camera

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX20V Compact Digital Camera
The Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V convinced with good test scores in all disciplines and conquered went straight to number one in the class of super zoom cameras.

The successor to the HX9V makes thanks to a high-quality processed case a solid impression and feels good in the hand. The resolution of 921,000 pixels, 3.0-inch LCD offers bright colors and pin sharp images. Completely new is the lens: When identical size to its predecessor's HX9V instead of 16 times a 20x optical zoom in operation, which now covers a focal range of 25 to 500 millimeters. Here, the image stabilizer works so well that even at full telephoto can still shoot out of hand.
Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX20V GPS Module
As with the previous model has the HX20V an integrated GPS module, a real plus for globetrotter. Generally, there are no facilities at something to complain about. Besides the common automatic programs and art filters there is a "M" mode. Only aperture and aperture priority missing. The HX20V takes full HD quality (1080p).
3 Inch LCD Display DSC-HX20V
The sound is recorded in stereo and can be levels in two stages. Zoom and continuous auto focus are available, and the image stabilizer works in video mode just fine.

Super Zoom Lens DSC-HX20V
The picture quality of the 18-megapixel CMOS sensor is good overall, but the measured resolution is closer to the level of a 16-megapixel sensor and takes off towards the edge of the image. The intervention of the noise filter can be seen even at low ISO values, but the values go up to ISO 800 in order. Vignetting, distortion, and color fidelity fall considerably good. In the wide-angle range, the Sony shows snapshot compatible with 0.32 second shutter lag, also measured in the telephoto position of 500 millimeters 0.71 seconds are neat. Only criticism: Despite well-functioning power saving mode and the small battery only lasts for 110-430 images.
