Sony DSC-HX80 reviews

Cyber-shot DSC-HX80 Digital Camera with Accessory Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Senior's almost perfect camera. This is a great little camera with everything I wanted - small, Zoom, EVF, flash, and 18 Mpx. As a Senior person I've gone through several Nikon 35mm slr cameras; several Canon DLSR cameras: several mirorless camers; and a number of other DSCs. The Sony HX80 is almost a perfect camera for me - for travel; for grandkids sports, for great grandkids action, and for relatively low light pictures. I generally use it up to 3200 ISO. It could only be perfection for me - IF it had a faster lens at about the same weight and size. Until such a thing becomes commonplace - this should last me some years, very nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Carry Everywhere Camera I bought this to have when my DSLR is not convenient (concerts, bike rides, etc). I took it along with the DSLR on a trip to the UK, and have been totally impressed by the photo quality, particularly the HDR mode. It's fast and able to handle low light well. I found myself reaching for it just as often as my DSLR. The features of the camera like wireless transfer and flip up viewfinder are really handy. If you find yourself leaving the DSLR at home, but being disappointed with the pictures you take with your phone, this is a great alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with this camera I bought this camera to use when my D750 and lenses are just too much to carry. I do a lot of hiking and wanted a pocketable camera with a long zoom to grab wildlife photos. I am happy with the image quality for photos taken at ISO 400 and below. For low light, image quality suffers owing to the small sensor. This is the trade off that is necessary to reduce the camera and lens size. Overall I am pleased with the results I am getting with this tiny camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice camera in a very small package The first thing I noticed is just how small this camera is. �I was, and still am, concerned about it slipping out of my hand, as the grip along the right side is also quite small. �However, if you are looking for an ultra zoom P&S camera that will fit in your pocket, as I was, this may be the camera for you. �The quality of the image is superb for such a small sensor. �The image stabilization allows me to shoot hand-held even zoomed out to the max 720. � I have had only one problem with the camera so far. �When I took it to its max zoom, the lens stuck in that position and would not retract. �I had to turn to camera off and back on to get it to reset. �So far, that has only happened once, but I have read other comments noting that same problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! I own a very large DSLR with telephoto lenses and wanted something small to capture a few wedding moments, as I am not the photographer but a guest. Last week I took the Sony Cyber-shot for a test shoot at the Statue of Liberty. I returned home and downloaded the photos to my computer and was very happy with the results. The images were sharp, little to no noise and had perfect color capture. The camera is great and at a very low price point it is most impressive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value I bought the HX80 just before departing on a vacation trip to Berlin and Copenhagen. I have a RX100-III, and the plan was to use both cameras: RX100 indoors or at night because of its low light (low-noise) capabilities, and the HX80 outdoors where I might need more reach and noise would not be a problem. In use, these proved to be true. The camera works well, the 720 mm zoom is amazing. But there are some drawbacks: - It does NOT record Raw images files (bummer...I misread the specs). - The images are grainier, even at low ISO, than the RX100. - On Aperture Priority and Manual, adjusting the f-stop and focus is a bit more klugy than the RX100 because there is no focus ring. - The lens is slower, but this is to be expected with a zoom. - Writing 6-8MB jpg images is slow, especially if you use one of the automatic settings. If you want a small snapshot camera that is not very expensive ($338) and has excellent reach, the HX80 is just fine. If you need better optics take your DSLR or a bridge camera, such as the Sony RX10-III with 600mm zoom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good point-shot camera for travel. We bought DSC-HX80 for our Alaska trip (don't want to carry my DLSR). It's small and easy to use. The picture quality is pretty good. we are happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Camera is ok...Recording is good! Was looking for a small, compact camera to use during a trip to Japan. Pros: • Small, compact, and light • Easy to use menu • Smooth videos • Great zooming • Viewfinder and flash works well • Sharing images and video is pretty easy and their mobile app works like a charm. • Long battery life Cons: • Auto-Focus did not work very well for me. I stayed mostly in Inteligent/Superior Auto mode. Sometimes would focus exactly on what I needed, but often would require multiple attempts. • Did not work well in low light settings • Image quality is just ok.� Overall: Most smartphones could easily match this camera in terms of taking photo's, but the video capturing capabilities for the camera is superb. Was very disappointed in the auto focus and low light shots. However, it did do its job taking my phones place and saving battery. Feel like this camera is priced higher than it's worth ~$250.
