Sony HX60V Review – Verdict

Sony HX60V Review -  front view

There’s no denying that the Sony HX60V does improve on its impressive predecessor, the HX50.

The addition of a new processor results in a bevvy of operational and performance improvements, while the features carried over continue to impress.

However it must be said that the HX60V arrives in a more competitive market than its predecessor, with the Panasonic TZ60 and Nikon S9700 particularly impressing.

So if you’re looking for a travel compact that delivers excellent image quality the HX60V remains a good option, although it could maybe have done with a few more improvements.
