5.0 out of 5 stars My best camera ever, 31 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V Super-Advanced High Zoom Camera (18.2MP, 20x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
I bought this as a second camera and have only had it for a couple of weeks. Already, it taken its place as my favourite although unfortunately, I can't see clients believing its better than my Nikon DSLR kit!

There is still one slight cloud on the horizon. Oh, that screen in bright sunlight! all I can see in it is myself. I've tried two items so far to overcome this but without success. I've now found a screen protector that has a matt non reflective finish and I'm hoping that will solve the problem.

I'm surprised it comes complete with a flash. Its hardly necessary. It takes the most amazing pictures in low light I've ever seen.

I like the special features like face recognition etc., but with tracking focus and the camera on 'P' its probably all I'm ever going to use!

Brilliant.

John

at last some one points out the problem with the 3 inch screen on a sunny day. cant understand how all these camera makers expect people to take a good photo when they cant see what they are trying to capture. i want one of these cameras, but having no view finder is a problem . still might buy it ? because it has so many other good features. thanks for the honest review

by @FoliX

After trying three others which simply didn't do what they said they would, I've found the answer. This is what you need. Completely no reflections whatsoever. It really does go most of the way to allowing a reasonable view in very bright sunlight. Its not optical viewing but is as good as I think can be got using a screen.
