Sony HX60V Review - Design

Sony HX60V front angled

In terms of the HX60V's design the model is very similar to its predecessor, maintaining the sleek and stylish design and lines.

Although the HX60V is a touch heavier than some competing models such as the Panasonic TZ60, this good design means it handles well and doesn't feel overly heavy in the hand.
The model features a polycarbonate plastic body and as such certainly feels up to the rigours of a travel camera might face.

Handgrip

The body also features an ergonomic feel thanks to the presence of a rubberised hand grip, allowing a solid grip of the camera even with the lens fully extended. This is further cemented by a supporting thumb grip on the rear of the camera.

In terms of the camera's controls the HX60V relies upon a multi-function selection wheel which offers access to most of the camera's functionality in one set location.

The model's top plate also features a dedicated exposure compensation dial which, in combination with the multi accessory port, combine to give the a somewhat advanced feel.
