Sony Cybershot HX10 Digital Camera Review and Specs

28 Reasons For

Good Brand

Sony has good average reviews for its compact camera digital cameras as well as across its entire digital camera range.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of similar spec cameras that have been on the market for more than two years range from 1x to 810x. When compared to other compact camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the DSC-HX10 that we have assessed, the digital zoom of the DSC-HX10 of 163 times zoom factor is one of the biggest.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the DSC-HX60 (£195.00) (486x), or the DSC-HX400V (£282.99) (810x) both from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Quite Large Screen Size

The DSC-HX10 has one of the larger screen sizes (3 inches) amongst compact camera digital cameras of this age. The smallest screen size of digital cameras of this age and type is 1" and the largest is 4.8".

There are a number of alternative 3" screen cameras currently available that you might want to consider including the Samsung WB800F (£409.99), or the Canon PowerShot S110 which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a camera with a larger screen size then you might want to consider the Nikon Coolpix P520 (3.2"), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77 (3.5") which also has a higher rating.

Has a GPS

has a GPS

Unlike most of the other comparable spec cameras that are a similar age to the DSC-HX10 which do not have a GPS, the DSC-HX10 has a GPS.

We compared all the other digital cameras with a GPS to this digital camera and we think the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2, the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, and the Sony DSC-HX400V (£282.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

3D Compatible

Unlike most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the DSC-HX10 which are not 3D compatible, the DSC-HX10 is 3D compatible.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 3D compatible cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon PowerShot A3300 IS (£59.99), and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ36 is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an MS Duo|MS PRO|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC memory card, which is the most commonly supported memory card on similar spec digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this camera is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX50 (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100 (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.

Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The Sony DSC-HX10 supports Full HD video, unlike most of the other digital cameras of this age and spec which do not support Full HD video.

We compared this camera to all the other cameras which support Full HD video and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10, and the Nikon Coolpix S9500 is also worth considering.

Fairly High Megapixel Count

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 18.2MP digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-HX20.

If you would prefer a higher megapixel count then you might also want to look at the Sony DSC-QX10 (£164.16) (18.9MP), or the Canon IXUS 145 (£59.99) (19MP) which is also higher rated.
