Sony HX90V is a compact camera with a 30-x optical zoom lens, an 18-mega pixel BSI CMOS sensor, an integrated pop-up OLED Tru-Finder EVF, full-HD video capture, and a tilting “selfie” frame, comes with a black Sony Cyber-Shot HX90/ HX90V. The sensor is a 30x optical lens with a newly created Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 30x Optical Zoom Lens, one of the smallest compact cameras. The HX60 is modified by the Sony Cyber-shot HX90/HX90V.

Sony HX90V: Performance

The HX90V will generate some pleasant pictures in a good light. The saturation is fine, the pictures feel warm. If you like your pictures to appear a little different, you can experiment with a few artistic types.

At the lower end of the susceptibility spectrum (ISO 100-400), descriptions are replicated well with fine details also at 100% magnification noticeable.

The overall detail impression is preserved well when the photos are presented in A4 or below at higher ISO 1600 sensitivities to about ISO 3200 (subject dependence). But you will see some image smoothing and a lack of clarity if you examine pictures at 100 percent. That said it’s wise to take into consideration any criticism of the noise control method than the HX60.

Sony HX90V: Handling

The Sony HX90 saw drastic improvements in the Sony HX series compared with previous versions. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX60 is quite a bit smaller than its ancestor, instead, it looks more like the famous RX100 IV from Sony. The HX90 is lightweight enough to fit into your pocket without loading it up – a major advantage for a camera traveler.

The battery and memory card weighs only 245 g. Indeed, it’s so light that its existence is hardly felt. The Sony HX90 still seems easy to wear, considering its limited size: a handhold slightly over the front of the camera. It’s not burdensome in any way.
Manual control is fine and is close to the Sony RX100 cameras series again. The Sony HX90 is fitted with a lens adjustment ring and a rear side manual dial. The lens ring is not a press but rather a smooth electronic control which may delay a couple. But it at least feels nice, as with the RX sequence.

Other hardware is a region in which the Sony HX90 lacks its forerunner. The exposure compensation dial that brings this model further into the cheap photographer’s market is not available. Exposure is, of course, still regulated through the camera menu system, but due to the absence of a hot shoe, devices such as a strong flash or an external mic cannot be added. There is however a simple embedded flash.

Sony HX90V: Lens

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-biggest HX90’s attraction is its prism. The 30x zoom offers 24 to 720mm of equivalent in the 35mm standard, providing broad scope for nature and wide-ranging images. The Panasonic TZ70 is the same model line and is very happy for something.

Of course, you may require a tripod in certain circumstances to use them outside of the magnification line but Sony HX90 is fitted with 5-axis picture stabilization to guarantee the distorted pictures don’t end as easily as the shutter rate slows down or the zoom rises.
However, with its unusual maximum aperture of f3,5-6,4, the Sony HX90 lens doesn’t give anything to help hold the shutter speed high. Again though, this is just what you get with the competing Panasonic TZ70, and it is obvious that there is an incredible degree of engineering here too.

Sony HX90V: Conclusion

One of the smallest compacts with 30x optical zoom is Sony’s Cyber-shot HX90V. It has a similar optical zoom set but is bundled in a smaller body following the common HX60 and HX50. The HX90V provides 24 to 720mm equivalent length, which brings you from a decent wide-angle to super images, whereas Zeiss has updated the earlier G series optics to a new version. The LUMIS HX90V includes an embedded Electronic Viewer, which pops out the body top like the latest model of the RX100, like its major competitor, the Panasonic Lumix TZ80 / ZS60. In comparison to the TZ80 / ZS60, though the HX90V also features an articulated, but not touch-sensitive, panel with embedded GPS hardware that allows it easier for you to tilt up to face up to yourself. In the end, the Lumix leads with 4k images, touch controls, and RAW assistance, but the HX90V is GPS-mounted, with a tilting screen and a much smaller frame. Both are super-zooms for high-end bags, but also consider the SX720 HS from Canon which is zooming longer than 40 seconds.
