Good:  Highly effective geotagging of photos; seamless 'sweep panorama' mode; super-fast autofocus; 10 frames-per-second continuous-shooting speed; can shoot 1080p movies

Excerpt:  Sony would like you to use a Memory Stick with the HX5V…but they’ve since wised up and you can also use SD cards (up to 32 GB). An included GPS sensor makes Geotagging a snap, and other great features include in-camera retouching tools, connec..

Bottomline:  Overall, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V/B is only average in picture quality but above-average in features. The high-definition video recording is very lucrative for consumers who want to go from pics to flicks in no time. Unfortunately, this camera does...
