Sony makes some great cameras and the DSC-HX50V is yet another in the Cyber-shot range. Boasting a 30x zoom and the ability to capture images at 20.4 megapixels or full HD 1080p movies, it will fit the bill for casual and more experienced...

Now that smartphones are starting to pull the rug out from under the low end of the point-and-shoot market, camera companies have to make a strong argument for spending hundreds of dollars more on their point and shoot cameras. To that end, Sony has...

I’ve had lots of experience with these mega zoom cameras: some enjoyable, some not so much.If you’re new to the field, approach them with caution: the zoom range is appealing, impressive and somewhat frustrating.For one, you simply cannot use them...

For a compact that packs 20 million pixels onto a small-format sensor and sports a 30x optical zoom lens in a compact casing, the Sony Cyber-shot HX50V masters its technology very well, both in terms of optics and electronics. Performances are...

Sony has made a smart move by splitting it's 2013 pocket super-zoom range and offering two options in the form of the HX50(V) and the more affordable 20x WX300. Not everybody needs or wants a 30x zoom but those who do won't mind paying a little extra...

If you were looking for a travel-zoom camera in the past, we’d have gone straight to recommending a Panasonic. Sony’s new HX50V crams 20 megapixels -- too many, really -- on its tiny sensor, with a 30x zoom lens and all the trimmings you could want....

International Review By CNET France on 80

Le Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V combine deux qualités recherchées par la plupart des personnes en quête d'un appareil photo numérique : compacité et gros zoom. L'adjectif "de poche" est un peu exagéré pour un appareil qui mesure 11 x 6,6 x 4 centimètres et...

Idag finns det gott om smartphone-modeller som kan ta dugliga bilder – åtminstone så pass dugliga att de allra flesta nöjer sig med den bildkvalitet dessa telefoner ger. Mer avancerade kompaktkameror fyller dock fortfarande en funktion, som till...

You may be surprised, but many camera purchase decisions have been down to the simple fact that their owners just want something better than their smartphone camera to take pictures when they're on a holiday. DSLR cameras are too bulky, while the smaller...

Dans ce segment très concurrentiel des compacts à zoom puissant, Sony a frappé un grand coup, dès le HX9V puis avec le HX20V , grand favoris de la presse spécialisée, y compris chez nous. La force de cette gamme HX : des images prêtes à l'emploi, des...

Som vanligt har Sonys ingenjörer gjort ett otroligt arbete med att packa in många funktioner utan att kameran svällt och blivit svår att få ner i fickan. Ingen annan med så mycket zoom är lika liten. Närmaste rivalen har 20x zoom, Sony har 30x! Det...

Som sædvanlig har Sonys ingeniører gjort et prisværdigt arbejde med at pakke meget ind, uden at kameraet buler ud og bliver for stort til en lomme. Ingen andre kameraer på markedet er så små og har samme zoom. Det nærmeste, man kommer, er 20x zoom. Her...
