27 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Compact cameras produced by Sony have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just compact cameras) and found that Sony also has good ratings across its entire range.

Good Quality Pictures

One Sony KHX20BBGSFDI reviewer concluded that this digital camera was able to produce good images. Expert review site Pcauthority.com.au wrote in their review of this digital camera “Attached to the camera like an oversized appendage is the very large Vario-Sonnar lens, providing the F707 with excellent image magnification via the 5x optical zoom”.
