I PURCHASED THIS IN LATE 2015 OR EARLY 2016
At the moment [October 2022] I am in the process or re-evaluating all my camera equipment.
I cannot remember but I think that I purchased my Sony DSC-HX90V late in 2015 or early in 2016. I got a huge discount as some one returned it to my local dealer a week after the purchased it.
Sony produced two versions of the HX90, the CyberShot HX90 and the CyberShot HX90V. The only difference between the two models is that the V-version has GPS technology inside whereas the HX90 did not. I purchased the HX90V because I needed GPS but missed the fact that it did not offer RAW and for that reason I did not use the camera on a regular basis. I later discovered that the original owner had returned it because it did not have a RAW option. The other problem was that I could not get my iPhone to communicate with it.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX90V is a digital zoom compact camera, which can zoom up to 30x; equivalent to 24-720mm. At the time of its release, it is the world’s smallest superzoom camera (along with its sibling, the WX500). It features optical image stabilisation, an AF Illuminator, an 18.2MP BSI Active pixel sensor and has customisable settings. The camera has a pop-up OLED electronic viewfinder that has 638,400 dots and is far brighter than any other conventional electronic viewfinders. The camera’s screen is a 3″ TFT LCD (921,000 dots) that tilts upward 180 degrees. Also borrowed from the RX100 is a customisable ring around the front of the lens. The HX90V can record video at 1080/60p using the XAVC S codec, which allows for bit rates up to 50MBps. The camera has a built-in GPS; used for geotagging. The camera also has built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and Bluetooth, which means you can connect your camera to your phone or tablet by using PlayMemories Camera Apps.
