The Camera looks Fantastic, But the Photo Quality looks Shocking I think we are going backwards, My old 8mp Cybershot N1 has far better photo quality than this, I have the Hx20v and thats very grainy, But on the plus side I love my RX100 its the dogs. PB. Rotherham UK.

For $450.00 U.S. Could you at least include a manual with this piece of crap?  These photos are not going to help sell any of these cameras either, P. Bowers is right, the quality of these photos is not what we would expect from this camera!

Nice clicks. I should say Sony HX50 is very good camera. It has good lens for clicking pictures it has clicked some very good pictures.

Image quality looks okay to me? Not the best in the price range obviously but still decent enough. The whole point of this camera is the 30x zoom in a camera small enough to fit in your pocket.

The first loss in 15 years; TCL Communication third quarter net loss of 87.09 million yuan, the first quarterly loss in five years lai, even as strong as the Huawei also appeared in the case of falling profits.

i don’t care if it has a 100X zoom if the images are crappy. i’d rather have the new sx280 and enlarge the images a bit… thats just me though

The pictures get bigger every day, and linear with it the quality gets worse. Could manufacturers, like Sony, not accept the limit for a home album or computer picture to be limited to 14 mpix for that small size of sensor. Sony’s H series point and shoot cameras started becoming crappy after 14 mpix and higher than 16 mpix with back-lit sensors.
How about developing sensor technology while staying at 10, 12, and 14 mpix. There are much better sensors to develop, other pattern than Bayer for example, better high iso capacity, on sensor measuring, and what else.
This camera has more crappy IQ than the model before, and the next one again will have more pixels and worse IQ again. It is like our dept money that asks for continuous growth, something that is just a dream, since some day the whole will crush. So, my advise to Sony, go bigger in sensor size for the P&S and make some with more valuable lenses, shorter, but faster zooms. This pocket crap market sucks on the end.

If the object is a huge print (40x60, for instance), well, then such prints from these images indeed would be smudged and grainy from viewpoints closer than few feet.  OTOH, if your object is an 8x10 or 16x20, they are just fine.  Not exquisite, perhaps, but a little targeted noise reduction and soft-contouring in Zoner will fix most of them right up.  So many of us lose sight of the incredible versatility of these little cameras deployed in the right hands.  If you are a bokeh fetishist, maybe not, but most individuals who grew up with film SLRs are astonished by the picture-taking capability (and yes, quality!) one can fit in ones pocket these days.

20 megapixels on a tiny 1/2.3” sensor? It’s not surprising that even the daylight shots are a mess of smearing and noise. Ridiculous.

I bought this camera with an expectation that it was going to solve all my travel photography needs, as other Sony products have provided in the past.  Wow, how I was wrong.

Basically, the viewing screen is useless in daylight.  The image quality varies, but is generally unacceptable.  Settings in the camera are not intuitive.  Twice the software in camera has frozen requiring restarts.  The camera has on two separate occasions with two different memory cards indicated that the cards could not be read and required reformatting (they did not).  The auto exposure does not work well when zooming out.  I just do not have the time or patience to baby a piece of equipment like this.

On a bright note, the video feature is phenomenal, but it is not enough for me to keep the camera.  So that is my two cents.

Okay,so everyone thinks it’s a pile of crap. Is there a good instruction manual, not user guide. I’d like to know the best video setting to make good use of the zoom, and the best photo setting. Also, if you are still awake, the battery is £39, are the cheap ones £9 rubbish. Thanks

OK so this sony is a piece of crap…as a relative novice looking for a good quality travel camera with good battery life, space to hold 500 or so photos, a sweet zoom and easy to use, WHAT DO YOU ALL RECOMMEND?

thanks for any and all assistance
