Kwabena, Edinburgh Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Image quality is fantastic
Bad points:
Build doesn't feel very solid like the RX100 which I used previously. That's no issue because the RX100 is more expensive.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The Sony Cyber-shot HX60 is a truly advanced compact Digital Camera featuring a large 30x optical zoom Lens with image stabilisation. A back-illuminated 20.4 Exmor R CMOS sensor gives you high quality images, even in low-light. Other features include Full HD movies with Intelligent Active Mode to keep your videos stable, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity so you can share your best shots in a second.

High-resolution, lifelike images
The back-illuminated Exmor RTM CMOS sensor delivers high 20.4 effective megapixel resolution and low noise. BIONZ X provides 3x faster processing than the previous BIONZ engine and more detailed reproduction.

High quality Zoom Lens
The Sony G lens with 30x optical zoom is perfect for getting up close to capture wildlife, sunsets, and more in pin-sharp clarity. The lens moves gyroscopically and compensates for movements caused by handheld shooting, giving you amazingly sharp pictures across the focal range.

Manual controls
With the mode dial, you can select aperture or shutter priority and change settings to suit your shooting. Control the amount of light in the shot with an exposure compensation dial.

Multi interface shoe
Attach a range of accessories to your camera, like external flashes, studio microphones, electronic viewfinders, and more. The hotshoe powers these fixings to enhance your shooting.

3-inch LCD
View pictures instantly and see footage as you record thanks to the built-in 7.6cm (3”) LCD display. Images appear bright and clear on the screen, exactly the way you see them.

Advanced movie technology
Just hit the dedicated movie button to start shooting crisp, clear Full HD movies. Intelligent Active Mode keeps your videos stable and shake-free, even when you’re walking or zooming.

Record in Full HD for clear, smooth movies – you can shoot in 24p frame rate for true cinema resolution. If you’re looking to get more serious with your shooting, try progressive AVCHD format for sharp, professional-looking footage.

Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity
There’s only one thing better than taking a great photo, and that’s sharing it. With Wi-Fi and NFC built-in you can share your best shots in a second. And with the smartphone remote app you’ll always be in control.

PlayMemories Camera Apps
Various apps can be downloaded from PlayMemories Camera Apps to further enhance the camera’s functionality.

Picture Effects
Breathe new life into a picture by using built-in Picture Effect technology. There’s a range of modes to choose from – you don’t even have to download image-editing software.

See your pictures in 4K detail
Connect the HX60 to a 4K Ultra HD TV to see your photos in dazzling clarity on a big screen. Every shade you see will appear vivid and lifelike thanks to TRILUMINOS™ colour.
