The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 gets reviewed at PhotographyBLOG, and Zoltan Arva-Toth, the reviewer, concludes:

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 is an undeniably fun camera to use. As you can see from our Sample Images we’ve used it to capture everything from fast-moving aeroplanes to quaint streets and quiet landscapes, fireworks to interiors and more. Having a long zoom on a snappy camera with almost all the controls you desire made for a very pleasant shooting experience — so much so that we were reluctant to give the camera back! Some of its unique features turned out to work really well, including the Sweep Panorama mode that made capturing panoramic images as effortless as it gets.

Shutter lag and delay times on the HX1 seem to be very good for this class of camera. Startup to taking the first picture required only 2.5 seconds. You can also take five single shots in 9.63 seconds, fast enough.

The HX1 received and overall rating score of 85 / 100, and their verdict on the DSC-HX1 is:

This is one of the most advanced digital cameras you can find. Picture quality is very good and is backed up with a stunning set of features. If you are serious about photography, but do not want to step up to a Digital SLR then take a look at the Cybershot DSC HX1.
