Our Score:


Sony HX20V sample image

At 25mm the HX20V is easily able to fit all of Exeter Cathedral into the frame.

While at 500mm the zoom can be used to pick out details on the cathedral.

Colours are pleasingly vibrant but natural looking when the camera is used in Program mode.

Intelligent Auto mode is also very consistent, producing punchy images with good contrast.

Sony HX20V sample image

Superior Auto mode is most effective in tricky light conditions, such as high-contrast scenes like this.

Sony HX20V sample image

The HX20V packs a useful Macro mode that produces good results. Note the slight underexposure though.

Sony HX20V sample image

The ISweep Panorama mode is really useful for capturing ultra-wideangle shots like this.

When 20x simply isn't enough you can use the digital zoom to get even closer - image quality is ok, just so long as you don't want to blow your images up too big.

Bad noise reduction, you can enlarge the photo 2 (the one with sheeps) and see the nature... atrocious... plastic feel.

I don't think that most purchasers of this camera will be pixel-peeping and the noise-reduction artefacts will be unnoticeable at any sensible print sizes and on-screen viewing. Anyway, what you complain about can be said about most, if not all, shirt-pocket compacts and is one of the prices to pay for convenience.
