Sony Cyber-Shot review

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX5 review : Although its appearance doesn’t betray it, the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX5 is unique in its kind. In the first place, the Sony Cyber-Shot camera distinguishes itself with its image sensor. While 99% of compact cameras are equipped with a standard CCD sensor, the Sony Cyber-Shot camera is equipped with a so-called back-illuminated CMOS sensor. Additionally, this compact camera from Sony has a 10x optical zoom lens with a 25m wide angle, optical Steady Shot, AVCHD Full HD video (1920x1080 pixels) and the impressively performing Sweep Panorama function with which beautiful panorama photos can be made.

Sony Cyber-Shot review
The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX5 digital camera is fairly unique in its kind. Not due to the powerful 10x optical range, as the competition tops that. And also not due to the effective image stabilizer, as that is also known from other manufacturers. The Sony Cyber-Shot camera is unique due to its remarkable image sensor and the possibilities that this offers that make the life of a photographer more pleasant. I am referring especially to the heightened dynamic range that the pictures have, and the addictive Sweep Panorama mode.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX5 review
They are indeed these remarkable features and the ease with which they can be performed that make for joy in photography. I make panorama photos all the time now. I see a street in Amsterdam with a pretty canal, and before I know it, I pull the camera across it and capture the panorama; it’s very fun to do. Such innovative functions have been integrated by Sony in such a user-friendly way, that as an amateur or as a photographer it is not difficult to use at all. Just select it, and technology does the rest.
