The Bottom Line Just one feature differentiates Sony's two 20x compact megazooms. The feature-rich Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V has a great mix of speed and photo quality. Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V is an excellent compact megazoom suitable for snapshooters and enthusiasts, though the latter might be turned off by some aspects of the camera. If you miss having a zoom lens, but don't want to add too much bulk and weight to your travels, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is a very good choice. Feature junkies in search of a compact megazoom should get the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V.
