Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50 review – Dynamic range

In general, the balance between the shadows and highlight detail is to be expected from a camera with a sensor of this size. A fair amount of shadow and highlight detail is usually retained in a well-balanced scene, but in more challenging conditions highlights and shadows are lost. Frequently, when the camera meters for the foreground, even on overcast days, little detail is resolved in the skies.
