It has got many features namely; GPS inbuilt which automatically records when and where you shoot photos and videos, I don't need to carry a Compass wherever I go because my Camera has got one inbuilt, picture quality of zoomed object is awesome, etc One thing I like with it is the ease with which you can ...
Pros: very good picture quality in all conditions, good video quality, wide aperture,
Cons: was only given 10mega pixels, GPS feature only helpful when you are on internet
Summary: Unfortunately after I dropped it once, the battery shutter does not close properly and due to which we are facing some problems. But otherwise the product has been living upto its expectations. We are still using it after 3 years since we purchased it.
Summary: I have this and a Canon DSLR, this is the bring anywhere family camera, and the DSLR is for my 'artistic' photos. This Sony does a more than adequate job of taking great family photos and HD videos, while being small, light and easy to use.
Summary: having owned a number of digital cameras this is certainly the best. excellent quality pictures and so easy to use. Many were printed in A4 format and the result was superb winning in a number of competitions competing with bridge and SLR cameras. I am very happy using it.
Summary: I must admit that I do like Sony products but this little camera is superb. I bought it as a present for the other half to encourage her to come out with me (I use a DSLR and am a keen amateur). She loved it and has produced some wonderful results including the panoramic photos which are excellent.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V: Washed out Photos? Step this Way!

Summary: I've been using this camera very regularly for about 7 months now, during the Summer holidays I used it extensively to record the main highlights of our days in pictures and HD movies. It's a sturdy, compact camera that is easy to grab but, ultimately for me has a few issues - the main one being that I'm not as happy with the quality of the photos it produces as I might be, given that it cost £179, the price at which it seems to be still available on amazon.
