Here is a summary of Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX100V review from a satisfied customer:
Amateur’s Review of HX100V
I need a new camera with video. I wondered about getting a DSLR but then found a bridge camera to be more covenant (as far as size), flexible (as far as features, especially the zoom range) and more affordable.
2) I wanted a camera with tilt screen since I’ll be taking angled pictures and video. This feature does make a difference for me.
3) I hate Sony’s exclusivity to only their memory card. This camera did not have this problem; I can use non-Sony memory cards.
4) The 3-inch screen resolution on this camera was much greater than other bridge cameras. In my thinking, I’m using this screen all the time, so why not get the best resolution.
5) I didn’t care much for the RAW feature. I take pictures and don’t do much editing afterwards.
Macro shooting is possible to as close as just 0.4 inches at wide angle, or 6.6 feet at telephoto.
