I do enjoy shooting on compact cameras. I love cameras that fit in your pocket and are always with you ready for action.

Therefore I recently purchased the Sony HX90v and decided to put it through its paces. As you know I shoot video rather than stills so this review focuses mainly on the camera’s video functions.

To sum my thoughts, I love the price and the size. The zoom is outstanding and the image stabilisation is really good. According to the Sony website:

“The ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 30x optical zoom lens extends a legacy of high-precision optics to capture clear, sharp, undegraded images throughout a 24-720mm2 range.”

I also liked that the LCD screen can flip right over making selfie shooting easy.

I didn’t like the colours of the image though and the internal mic wasn’t good.

I’d give it 7/10 mainly because of the price and the length of the zoom.

If you are interested in purchasing one then please follow this link to my Amazon affiliate page. That way I’ll get a small cut of anything you purchase at no extra cost to you.
