Sony’s HX100V features a brand new 16.2Mp, back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. This new sensor is able to capture large 4608x3456px JPEGs, as well as full 1080HD video. On the front sits a 30x optical zoom lens (27-810mm), and this offers Sony’s Optical SteadyShot lens-shift image stabilisation. The mode dial on the top-plate offers the standard M, A, S, P, shooting modes, alongside some creative modes such as iSweep Panorama, 3D shooting, and a variety of Scene modes – although switching through these modes on our sample gave a noticeable delay between selecting the mode and being able to use it. Images and video look great on the crystal clear 3in, 921k-dot LCD screen, which can be tilted outwards. Pressing the FINDER/LCD button will give you the option of switching between the LCD and EVF. You can do this automatically by placing the camera to your eye, too – though there is a noticeable 1sec delay.
