5 out of 5 stars   Made this neophyte look experienced
By carryonebag (Texas) June 18, 2011
Review submitted for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V 10.2 MP Digital Camera, 16GB Card, Spare Batt, Case & More (E2SNDSCHX5V)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Long Battery life, Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality
Cons:
Other Comments: Even with limited digital camera experience, I was able to follow the prompts on the screen to find the best feature for the shot. I often used the "easy" setting because it was just that! and the photos still came out exceptionally well. The only drawback from a neophyte point of view was trying to turn the flash on or off with a minimum of fuss, such as when in a museum. I am greatly pleased with the high quality of my photos and it made me look more skilled than I am in reality.

5 out of 5 stars   Good things do come in small packages
By Gern Blanston (Detroit, MI) December 17, 2010
Review submitted for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V 10.2 MP Digital Camera, 16GB Card, Spare Batt, Case & More (E2SNDSCHX5V)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Hand held twilight pix, Panoramic mode is great, Compact and easy to use
Cons: Shutter lag
Other Comments: I purchased this camera because I wanted a camera that would travel for vacations well and it did not disappoint me. My wife and I just got back from Mexico and I have a DSLR and this camera did about 80% of what I could do with my DSLR equipment but at about 25 lbs. less and a lot less bagage. I didn't want to lug all that equipment thru the airport, customs on the plane etc. The twilight pictures without using a tripod are great. You'll find taking pictures in any mode is easy. This camera is a lot of equipment in a very small package. The only thing I needed to get use to from my DSLR to this camera was a little shutter lag.

Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I like the camera, I haven't used it a lot yet, but works fine in normal light (indoors and out). I like the quality and functions until now. I have had other cameras that use regular batteries and I just don't like to have product/brand specific batteries that can leave you hanging.
