Rated 5 out of 5 Best small size portable I've owned
I currently have an Alpha 99 / 77 / 55 with more lenses than I can carry. But this little portable is my go-to camera when I can't be bothered lugging around all my equipment. It gives me an image that is very close to the professional result my SLTs provide. I have even produced some very wonderful 13x19 quality prints from this little gem. It has been exposed to very cold weather (Churchill Manitoba) and worked flawlessly. And, It worked well during many Toronto heat waves.
I had a Nikon CoolPix before, but the HX30V is significantly superior. The only downside (an upside for some) is that there are too many options available. So many that I often forget that there are some very unique and user friendly functions available. It's a great buy at the current price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SonuGunjan First hand review
I have bought the capera very recently. After taking it in my hand for first hour, I realzed that (Cons)
*The flesh light which pops out may be an issue in future
* viewing glass (3 inches) has no border protection, would catch up scratches faster.
* Navigational button is so cheap in quality, it metal sounds while using it. (could be more finished)
* Paranomic view is tough to capture
* GPS & wi-fi is just a sailer, not much of use.
* I miss my old Sony DSC which had carl zies lenses.
Picture quality is good

The WiFi is difficult to set up and not very user friendly, some work required here, also App on IOS is not that great only down loads small file not the full resolution, also not very user friendly, not automatic, need to make a bunch of settings before it will actually work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KBCO Love my Camera!
The zoom is so great on this camera and it takes clear pictures without having to use a tripod. I love using the different pictures effects. It took some time to learn how to do everything but having the manual right in the camera makes is convenient. Also, the WiFi is excellent because I can upload pictures to my computer and phone so easily. I would recommend this camera to anyone who wants to take amazing pictures without much effort.
