I also owe the Sony DSC HX1 and I absolutely love it. It takes high quality pictures. Here are some of the pictures I took with this lovely camera.

I just ordered mine due to your wonderful images. Did you post process these (even sharpen unmask in camera) or are they straight from the camera. They are some of the best I have seen, great job.


Paul, the images are straight from the camera. I just plug a card reader into my MacBook USB slot and transfer photos to iPhoto. I may have used the one-touch image adjustment in iPhoto, but I don't think so.

I've found that the color straight from the Sony usually looks better than what iPhoto comes up with (photos taken with my iPhone are another matter).

You'll enjoy the camera. I've also used it for video and found it worked great. Here's a You Tube video taken with the Sony of swifts going down a Portland chimney. The zoom works as well with video as with still shots:

Thanks for the info :)

I'm looking at getting this camera and it is great to see such brilliant pictures that have been taken with it.

I think this may have persuaded me to go ahead and buy it!
