  • You will grow to like the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V more and more as you get used to it. And it will only cost you $276.95 on eBay....

  • Packed with features, Good travel zoom, Built-in GPS and 3D
  • Need to add a 3D TV, Broader than rivals, GPS weak when indoors
  • Enticing the point and shoot merchant who has got a little more serious about their photography, Sony has packed a lot of firepower into the Cyber-shot HX9V’s chunky, if pocket-sized, chassis. A 16x optical zoom pushes it into travel zoom category wit

  • Excellent zoom range, decent pictures, GPS, affordable, well built & good finish
  • No Aperture or Shutter Priority, menus can be a little slow to react
  • The Sony Cyber-shot HX9V is a feature-packed and affordable 16x zoom compact camera. There’s little to complain about as the HX9’s focusing system, 10fps burst mode, GPS technology, manual controls and variety of scene modes all come up trumps. This is...

  • The HX9V is a powerful compact but faces stiff competition from its cheaper rivals such as the Panasonic Lumix-DMC TZ20 and Canon PowerShot 230HS. But, for the extra money, the HX9V does offer an array of intelligent features, as well as a longer zoom len...
