Sony WX500

We thought the Sony HX90 was a bit pricey at release--the Sony WX500 answers that with a bit more palatable price, but axes a lot of the usability features. Selling for about $410 at its first release, the Sony WX500 offers a big 30x optical zoom,...

Sony WX350

The compact zoom category is competitive and packed full of decent shooters, so where does the Sony WX350 sit? The WX350 is one of the fastest options when considering burst speed with a nice 10 fps. The 20x optical zoom isn't the best in clas...

Sony RX10 Mark III

Sony QX30

Sony's QX line is interesting to say the least--they're essentially cameras without screens, instead, they operate with a smartphone and wi-fi or NFC. Last year's QX10 offered a solid 10x zoom--but the 2014 QX30 triples that, offering ...

Sony H400

It's common for budget models to have a CCD sensor and a burst speed that's the equivalent of a snail's pace and the Sony H400 seems to follow that logic. It uses a 1/2.3" CCD sensor and the burst speed is just .71 fps, though it ...
