Sony’s latest high-end travel compact features technology designed to make it easier for you to produce great shots. We find out if the HX9V really does the job
The HX9V is a powerful compact but faces stiff competition from its cheaper rivals such as the Panasonic Lumix-DMC TZ20 and Canon PowerShot 230HS. But, for the extra money, the HX9V does offer an array of intelligent features, as well as a longer zoom lens and higher-resolution sensor.
The lack of manual options won’t suit everyone, but for those looking for a high-quality compact that will fit in your pocket, the HX9V is certainly worth considering.
