Details

The HX60 also has three more features that we rarely see on compact cameras. There's an accessory shoe that can accommodate a flashgun, microphone, electronic viewfinder, wireless flash trigger or video lamp. Around the front there's a proper rubber-textured handgrip. This may be tiny compared to any SLR grip but it's far easier to hold securely than almost any other compact camera we've used recently. Then there's the dedicated exposure compensation dial. We find this simple control hugely beneficial, particularly on a compact camera where it's tempting to leave all settings for the camera to decide automatically.

The HX60's other controls are well taken care of. There's a mode dial with priority and manual exposure, scene presets and panorama shooting. Pressing the Fn button reveals 12 customisable functions across the screen, which are navigated using the four-way pad on the back and adjusted using the rear wheel. In playback mode, the Fn button becomes a shortcut for sending photos to a smartphone or tablet. With dedicated buttons for drive mode, flash options and autofocus area, this is a camera for people who like to keep firmly in control.
HX60 IMAGE QUALITY
There isn't much to separate the Sony cameras for image quality, either. The HX60 has a clear advantage for distant subjects thanks to its huge 30x zoom, and focus was reasonably sharp throughout the zoom range. However, noise reduction struggled to make sense of out-of-focus areas of the frame, so while the main subject in telephoto shots looked pretty good, the background often had an over-processed appearance. Flash-lit portraits were nicely exposed but photos took on a yellow tint under household lighting, and exhibited a lot of noise. A Multi-Frame NR mode captured and combined four exposures to minimise noise in low light, but while this is enabled automatically in Superior Auto mode, it's not so quick to access in Program mode.
Connectivity

As you might expect from a travel compact from Sony, the HX60V features both Wi-fi and NFC connectivity for wireless transfer of images between the camera and a smart device.

Thanks to it being a Sony device, the model also incorporates Sony’s PlayMemories store. This allows photographers to add extra functionality to their camera through installing various apps, with many available for free.
