Great alternative to the TZ10. If I hadn't bought a Canon S90 I'd have probably have gone for this over the TZ10 (or bought a TZ7 instead).

Capture stunning low-light images and sweeping panoramic views with the DSC-HX5V featuring an "Exmor R" CMOS Sensor. Plus catch fast action shots with up to 10 frames per seconds shooting. Full HD Movie Mode records amazingly detailed video and a 25mm equivalent wide angle 10x high-zoom G Lens allows you to take captivating images.

Frame your shots on a 3-inch LCD
Sony DSC-HX5V Highlights

3.0-inch Clear Photo LCD display (230k pixels)
Compose and show off your images on the large 3.0-inch (230K) Clear Photo LCD display, which features a special anti-reflective coating for sharp visibility, even in bright sunlight.

10x (25mm) professional-quality optical zoom G-Lens
G lenses are used in top of the line digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras and advanced pro-sumer HD Camcorders. Capture the action up close with the 10x optical zoom, and with the 25mm equivalent wide angle lens the HX5V even allows you to capture more of the scenes in landscape or group portraits.

10.2-megapixel, back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS image sensor
The DSC-HX5V features a 10.2-megapixel "Exmor R" CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera's wide angle G lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined "Exmor R" CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor delivers extremely fast 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080i movie modes.

TZ7 is currently on offer for £199.99 at Amazon, very similar specs. Also expensive memory cards with the usual sony branding. Personally would choose the TZ7 and save myself a bit of money.

not going to vote as i am comparing 2 different products

Takes SD cards and also takes very good photos in low light levels (apparently) - a weak point of the TZ7. Point taken that the TZ7 is cheaper, but this is more comparable to the TZ10.

Not forgetting the ability to capture 1080i HD video with stereo sound. I'm getting this to replace my TZ5. Hot.:thumbsup:

Also, there's the sweep panorama shot thing which looks amazing.
Really want this camera, but can't afford it right now.

Sorry for taking the thread slightly off topic :oops:

How does this compare to the Sony DSC-WX1 which is the camera I was thinking of getting??

Edit: Just corrected some spelling...

Seems like a nice camera, however:
Capture stunning low-light images

seems more marketing than reality. It's still pretty useless above ISO400 the same as every other compact camera in its class. It just has very agressive noise reduction that turns your images to mush.

Not according to some of the reviews I've read. There are also various sample shots in low light on the web that indicate very good low light results.

No expert on this, but a lot of the reviews I read on the WX1 indicated that the quality of the pictures wasn't that good. Think this more or less replaces the WX1, although that is slightly cheaper now anyway.

Fair point - been waiting to find a high street store with stock of this camera so I can try it in the flesh.

I was in a Currys Digital last Saturday having a go with one. Try in there... :thumbsup:

I have a reserve at Heathrow duty free tomorrow afternoon as I'm flying. But for £280, Tesco would have been cheaper. Looks like I will be paying £300 :?

You got a link for that mate.

a link for for the review I looked at here

Very slightly worse than the Panasonic, which is itself no high ISO star.

Great comparative review - most comprehensive I've read so far.

I hoping that my local Tesco 'extra' is going to get some on the shelves. My local Currys is has stock for £379.99, so I'd be quite happy with a 110% price match and getting the price down to £270.

Out of stock online..

I may purchase from here when they get stock.. http://www.ukdigital.co.uk/sony-cybershot-dsc-hx5-camera.htm

They give an extra years warranty and I can drive up to the shop to pick it up.

BTW checked out the cam today in jessops... so far I'm quite impressed... loving the fast zoom.

Tesco still out of stock. They may have had a few but in only 3 hours from nightime am when they alerted me by email, they were out of stock. Has anyone actually had one from Tescos as the delivery date has slipped into the unknown from March originally advertised?

Be cautious where you order from. I ran one of the sources listed through Trustpilot and there are horror tales of claims to be intock, but not. Let Trustpilot guide you before you leap into the unknown.

There are now user reviews on Amazon and some claims here and elsewhere of too soft focus and lack of sharpness in images.

For those comparing it with the TZ7, I had one and it is brilliant but it should be cheap as it has now been replaced by the TZ10. Similar model but improved with a GPS database and even at discount prices is sold at similar prices to the Sony
