Finally site with photos - Sony HX5V

Today I found a web site here that has photos taken with a pre-production model of the Sony DSC-HX5V.

Here are direct links to four videos. Video 1,Video 2,Video 3,Video 4.

And here is a ISO test series: ISO 125, ISO 200, ISO 400, ISO 800, ISO 1600, ISO 3200.

Here is a sample (100% crop):

Not unexpected for a small sensor like the HX5V has, the pain threshold will probably be ISO 400 or ISO 800. Expect no miracles, even if the sensor is supposed to be new and improved. But then again, for me it is more the feature set I am wanting. 25mm to 250mm zoom, GPS geo tagging, image stabilization, video with zoom and autofocus, etc.

But the three panoramas that they posted (123) does not impress at all. If you look at them at 100%, they look like ISO 1600 or more... Not sure if that is what they were taken as, or if it is an affect of the panorama function.

I am still keeping my pre-order at Amazon for now. You can order yours here if you feel like it.
