    8  

    Sony's HX400V might look pretty much the same on the outside as the HX300V it's replacing, but there are lots of improvements under the hood.

    Sony QX100 review

    Hands on: Sony QX100 review

     

    Sony's new solution to the decline of compact cameras is to pair with your phone, rather than fight it. But how well does it work?

    Can Sony's Godzilla-like HX300, with its large body and 50x optical zoom, tower over its rivals for handling, performance and picture quality?

    Sony NEX-5 review

    Sony NEX-5 review

    9  

    The 14.2-megapixel Sony NEX-5 is cut from a different cloth to most Electronic Viewfinder, Interchangeable Lens (EVIL) cameras. That much is true as soon as you pull it out of the box - impressive-looking beasts such as the Nikon D3S aside, there may not be a better-looking camera available today.

    Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 review

    6  

    If you buy a Sony W200, allow yourself an hour to read the manual. We didn't bother and a short time after taking it out for a spin we were furiously pressing all of the many buttons to try to delete an image. Why hasn't Sony included that familiar bin icon next to a button to make life easier?Next we tried to change the ISO and again it's not obvious.

    Sony DSC-T100 review

    8  

    The DSC-T100 doesn't simply stand out as expensive for such a slimline camera, it also stands out courtesy of its amazing 8-megapixel rating. The 3-inch viewfinder is a great feature too. Slide back the lens cover and it instantly kicks to life

    Sony Cyber-shot T10 review

    8  

    Upgrading last year's almost identical-looking Cyber-shot, the similarly flat-faced T10 snapshot brings another million pixels to the party, crammed on to the same physical size chip. Just 21mm wide, it also boosts maximum light sensitivity
