Specifications:

16.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated ?Exmor R? CMOS Image Sensor

The DSC-HX9V features a 16.2 megapixel ?Exmor R? CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera?s Sony G lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined ?Exmor R? CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor delivers extremely fast up to 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080p movie modes.4

3.0? (921K dots) Xtra Fine LCD display

3.0? (921K dots) Xtra Fine LCD with TruBlack technology gives you deeper blacks and more color in your display, all while being thinner than most LCDs.

Compact camera with 16x optical zoom

The Sony 16x optical zoom G lens brings distant subjects super close for great outdoors, sports, and travel photos. The compact size makes it easy to take along in a pocket, purse, or backpack.

Full HD 1080/60p

Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60p in 1080 Full HD. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your Blu-ray Disc players, Sony PlayStation3 systems and compatible PCs and HDTVs.

Backlight Correction HDR

Don?t miss a single detail in high contrast shots. The built in backlight correction analyzes the image and automatically adjusts accordingly to give you a perfectly lit shot. Backlight Correction HDR helps correct for this by taking three pictures at different exposure settings and processing the best elements of each into a single image for more natural looking shots.

3D Still Image and 3D Sweep Panorama mode

Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities.4 Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way.

Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode

With Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode just press the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a high resolution panoramic image providing the ability to zoom in on small details. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion.

Hi-speed Linear Focus

Life moves fast, your camera?s focus needs to move just as fast. The Hi-speed linear focus achieves dramatically clearer images with an auto focus that moves just as fast as your life.

Background Defocus

DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on your subject. Now our point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear.

Superior Auto mode

Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using backlight correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology. Superior Auto intelligently detects 33 scenes for still images and 44 scenes for movies, making it easy to get the best shot.

Digital Zoom

Capturing the right shot at the right moment has never been so easy. Digital zoom brings you right close up to the action so you can get that perfect shot, every time.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality.

Soft Skin mode

Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot.

Natural Flash

Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them. Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images.

HDMI output

The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. HDMI connects digital audio/video sources such as a compatible camcorder, Blu-ray Disc player, a personal computer, a video game console, or an AV receiver to a compatible digital audio device and/or video monitor such as a digital television (DTV). Easily connect your Cyber-shot camera via HDMI cable to any compatible HDMI compatible device to easily enjoy and upload content.

Smile Shutter technology

Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can be used together with Smile Shutter mode. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.

Face Detection technology

Sony?s Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.

Motion Detection

It?s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.

Anti-blink Function

It?s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.

Compatible with PC and Mac Systems

The Full HD video captured with the DSC-HX9V can be used with the provided Picture Motion Browser software for PC and iMovie (sold separately) for Mac systems.

Includes Sony PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Software ver. 5.5

Includes Sony PMB Portable software

Review submitted for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V 16.2 MP Exmor R CMOS Digital Camera w/ 16x Optical Zoom (SNDSCHX9V)
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Easy To Use, Great Zoom, Small / Compact, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Stabilization
Cons:
Other Comments: This is the best compact for video with a rare capability 1080 progresive at 60 frames per second (even very expensive DSLR from Canon, Nikon cannot achieve this), a superb image stabilization that rivals a steadycam (especially at wide angle), a superb high resolution 900K+ screen and a very good optics (I really like the 24mm wide angle end and the 384mm telephoto end). The fixed aperture is a negative. The camera also tends to blow out highlights so with brightly lit objects, you may want to set exposure at -1EV or -2EV.

By BKPKer on May 31, 2012

Review submitted for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V 16.2 MP Exmor R CMOS Digital Camera w/ 16x Optical Zoom (SNDSCHX9V)
Pros: Large Clear LCD, Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality
Cons:
Other Comments: I just got this camera and used it during a recent backpacking trip. The image quality is significantly better than my previous point and shoot camera (A Canon) but it is larger and heavier, which is a con for backpackers. But I still love it and taking panoramas are super easy. When I was doing some research before buying a camera, one of the cons mentioned about it in product reviews was that there are too many features. I have found that to be true. I have been looking for various features and it's often hard to find where they are. But I think it's worth the quality of pictures. Since this is a new camera, I do not know about durability yet. There is another con: the camera does not come with a plug-in charger so you have to plug in the camera itself to charge the battery. However, this problem can be easily fixed by buying a separate charger from Sony or aftermarket. Again, so far the quality, colors, and the zoom are great.

Pros: Easy To Use, Small / Compact, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Poor Flash, Poor Image Quality
Other Comments: I bought this camera to take snapshots of my family and for vacations. Two main problems - very inconsistent flash metering and inaccurate skin tones. The flash metering varied between underexposed and blown out. Skin tones were far darker than reality.

Pros: Good Image Quality, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Easy To Use, Great Zoom
Cons:
Other Comments: I took this on my trip to HI for 10 days and it was really flexible. I loved having the extra zoom power, though usually it isn't necessary. The wide lens is nice. I'm happy with the photo quality though it isn't that much better than my Nikon P50 from about 50 years ago. The extra tools (like panormaic) make the upgrade worth it.

Review submitted for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V 16.2 MP Exmor R CMOS Digital Camera w/ 16x Optical Zoom (SNDSCHX9V)
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Great video in low light, Large Clear LCD, Good in Low Light, Good Image Stabilization, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Great Zoom
Cons: Just a little too big, Pop Up Flash
Other Comments: I love this camera! Before I bought this I had three things I was looking for in the camera I bought (besides taking good pictures of course) It had to fit in my back pocket, it had to have a three inch LCD screen, and it had to take good video in low light. This takes good pictures in low light also, but I can always use a flash for pictures, but not with video! Before purchasing this camera I decided to try the Sony TX55. It was beautiful and it was small. I hated the touchscreen, was not happy with the zoom or picture quality, and returned it after a couple of days. After spending hours looking at reviews and comparing cameras this Sony HX9V is what I chose and despite the fact that I swore I would not buy a camera that would not fit in my back pocket this is perfect. I'll learn to deal with having to wear a fanny pack or something when I'm hiking or in the yard. It takes awesome video even at full zoom and in low light! I took video at my son's Pinewood Derby competition and even the pictures I took clear from the other side of the gym using the 16Xzoom in very poor lighting are clear as a bell. I viewed the videos on both my computer and large screen HD TV and was amazed at the quality! Even on the 42 inch TV it was crisp and clear! I love the 16X zoom and cannot imagine how I ever lived with a piddly little 5X zoom before. I have taken tons of pictures at full zoom and cannot believe how clear they come out! The Sweep panorama is really fun to use and comes out very clear in my opinion! The only things that I consider to be cons are relatively small complaints and I have learned, or am learning to deal with them. It is just a little bit larger than I would like it to be, but I wouldn't part with any of its features to get a smaller camera. Well, except maybe the GPS. I have not used it because I really don't have a need for it and many reviewers stated that it takes a long time to lock in on a satellite and it eats up battery power fast. Also the pop up flash seems to be in somewhat of an awkward place where you would naturally want to hold the camera while taking pictures, but it's not all that bad and I've learned to adjust. The flash also sometimes seems to be overkill and to wash out my pictures. But I would imagine I can learn how to fix that. And anyway I rarely even need the flash since the camera takes such good pictures in low light. I have not used the 3D features since I do not have a 3D TV. Nor do I know anyone that does. That kind of seemed like a useless function, but maybe some people will like it. The battery life seems acceptable, however not quite as good as my last camera. That's ok though as I purchased a charger/car charger and two of the batteries that actually give you the minutes remaining. Did I mention that I love this camera? But I still kind of wish it had been available in something other than black. I do not like black which tells you how awesome this camera is that I would own it in black.
