Sensor size comparison

Sensor size is generally a good indicator of the quality of the camera. Sensors can vary greatly in size. As a general rule, the bigger the sensor, the better the image quality.

Bigger sensors are more effective because they have more surface area to capture light. An important factor when comparing digital cameras is also camera generation. Generally, newer sensors will outperform the older.

Note: You are comparing cameras of different generations. There is a 2 year gap between Sony HX80 (2016) and Sony HX60 (2014). All things being equal, newer sensor generations generally outperform the older.

Pixel pitch tells you the distance from the center of one pixel (photosite) to the center of the next. It tells you how close the pixels are to each other.

The bigger the pixel pitch, the further apart they are and the bigger each pixel is. Bigger pixels tend to have better signal to noise ratio and greater dynamic range.

Difference: 0.07 µm (6%)

Pixel pitch of HX80 is approx. 6% higher than pixel pitch of HX60.

Pixel or photosite area affects how much light per pixel can be gathered. The larger it is the more light can be collected by a single pixel.

Larger pixels have the potential to collect more photons, resulting in greater dynamic range, while smaller pixels provide higher resolutions (more detail) for a given sensor size.

Relative pixel sizes:

Pixel area difference: 0.17 µm² (12%)

A pixel on Sony HX80 sensor is approx. 12% bigger than a pixel on Sony HX60.

Pixel density tells you how many million pixels fit or would fit in one square cm of the sensor.

Higher pixel density means smaller pixels and lower pixel density means larger pixels.

Difference: 7.69 µm (12%)

Sony HX60 has approx. 12% higher pixel density than Sony HX80.

Diagonal

Diagonal is calculated by the use of Pythagorean theorem:
Diagonal = √  w² + h²
where w = sensor width and h = sensor height

Sony HX80 diagonal

The diagonal of HX80 sensor is not 1/2.3 or 0.43" (11 mm) as you might expect, but approximately two thirds of that value - 7.7 mm. If you want to know why, see sensor sizes.

w = 6.16 mmh = 4.62 mm

Diagonal = √  6.16² + 4.62²   = 7.70 mm

Sony HX60 diagonal

The diagonal of HX60 sensor is not 1/2.3 or 0.43" (11 mm) as you might expect, but approximately two thirds of that value - 7.7 mm. If you want to know why, see sensor sizes.

w = 6.16 mmh = 4.62 mm

Diagonal = √  6.16² + 4.62²   = 7.70 mm

Surface area

Surface area is calculated by multiplying the width and the height of a sensor.

HX80 sensor area

Width = 6.16 mmHeight = 4.62 mm

Surface area = 6.16 × 4.62 = 28.46 mm²

HX60 sensor area

Width = 6.16 mmHeight = 4.62 mm

Surface area = 6.16 × 4.62 = 28.46 mm²

Pixel pitch

Pixel pitch is the distance from the center of one pixel to the center of the next measured in micrometers (µm). It can be calculated with the following formula:
Pixel pitch =   sensor width in mm  × 1000
sensor resolution width in pixels

HX80 pixel pitch

Sensor width = 6.16 mmSensor resolution width = 4920 pixels
Pixel pitch =   6.16  × 1000  = 1.25 µm
4920

HX60 pixel pitch

Sensor width = 6.16 mmSensor resolution width = 5208 pixels
Pixel pitch =   6.16  × 1000  = 1.18 µm
5208

Pixel area

The area of one pixel can be calculated by simply squaring the pixel pitch:

Pixel area = pixel pitch²

You could also divide sensor surface area with effective megapixels:
Pixel area =   sensor surface area in mm²
effective megapixels

HX80 pixel area

Pixel pitch = 1.25 µm

Pixel area = 1.25² = 1.56 µm²

HX60 pixel area

Pixel pitch = 1.18 µm

Pixel area = 1.18² = 1.39 µm²

Pixel density

Pixel density can be calculated with the following formula:
Pixel density =  ( sensor resolution width in pixels )² / 1000000
sensor width in cm
One could also use this formula:
Pixel density =   effective megapixels × 1000000  / 10000
sensor surface area in mm²

HX80 pixel density

Sensor resolution width = 4920 pixelsSensor width = 0.616 cm

Pixel density = (4920 / 0.616)² / 1000000 = 63.79 MP/cm²

HX60 pixel density

Sensor resolution width = 5208 pixelsSensor width = 0.616 cm

Pixel density = (5208 / 0.616)² / 1000000 = 71.48 MP/cm²

Sensor resolution

Sensor resolution is calculated from sensor size and effective megapixels. It's slightly higher than maximum (not interpolated) image resolution which is usually stated on camera specifications. Sensor resolution is used in pixel pitch, pixel area, and pixel density formula. For sake of simplicity, we're going to calculate it in 3 stages.

1. First we need to find the ratio between horizontal and vertical length by dividing the former with the latter (aspect ratio). It's usually 1.33 (4:3) or 1.5 (3:2), but not always.

2. With the ratio (r) known we can calculate the X from the formula below, where X is a vertical number of pixels:

(X × r) × X = effective megapixels × 1000000    →   
X = √  effective megapixels × 1000000
r
3. To get sensor resolution we then multiply X with the corresponding ratio:

Resolution horizontal: X × r Resolution vertical: X

HX80 sensor resolution

Sensor width = 6.16 mmSensor height = 4.62 mmEffective megapixels = 18.20
r = 6.16/4.62 = 1.33
X = √  18.20 × 1000000  = 3699
1.33
Resolution horizontal: X × r = 3699 × 1.33 = 4920 Resolution vertical: X = 3699

Sensor resolution = 4920 x 3699

HX60 sensor resolution

Sensor width = 6.16 mmSensor height = 4.62 mmEffective megapixels = 20.40
r = 6.16/4.62 = 1.33
X = √  20.40 × 1000000  = 3916
1.33
Resolution horizontal: X × r = 3916 × 1.33 = 5208 Resolution vertical: X = 3916

Sensor resolution = 5208 x 3916

Crop factor

Crop factor or focal length multiplier is calculated by dividing the diagonal of 35 mm film (43.27 mm) with the diagonal of the sensor.
Crop factor =   43.27 mm
sensor diagonal in mm

HX80 crop factor

Sensor diagonal in mm = 7.70 mm
Crop factor =   43.27  = 5.62
7.70

HX60 crop factor

Sensor diagonal in mm = 7.70 mm
Crop factor =   43.27  = 5.62
7.70

35 mm equivalent aperture

Equivalent aperture (in 135 film terms) is calculated by multiplying lens aperture with crop factor (a.k.a. focal length multiplier).

HX80 equivalent aperture

Crop factor = 5.62Aperture = f3.5 - f6.4

35-mm equivalent aperture = (f3.5 - f6.4) × 5.62 = f19.7 - f36

HX60 equivalent aperture

Crop factor = 5.62Aperture = f3.5 - f6.3

35-mm equivalent aperture = (f3.5 - f6.3) × 5.62 = f19.7 - f35.4

Sony DSC-HX80 reviews

Cyber-shot DSC-HX80 Digital Camera is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 45.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from I would highly recommend this magic camera I bought this camera mostly for travel and family events. I never could imagine that this small camera can provide such an extremely high quality pictures and video clips. Viewfinder and flash are imbedded the way not to interfere with your activity and can be put to work in a matter of seconds. Zoom is terrific, 24mm - 720 mm allow to take panoramic shots and arm close objects. Especially camera proved to be good for a portrait shooting. Given all included features the ratio price / quality cannot be any better. Strongly recommend this camera to those looking to by an inexpensive high quality apparatus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trainer John from This is the point and shoot camera I have been waiting for! This is the one camera that does everything for me anywhere in the world that I shoot photos! Great Zeiss telephoto 30X lens with wide angle. Lightweight so that it fits in my front pocket. The flip up rear screen is great for taking selfies in front of the Eiffel Tower! Pop up view finder is great when the sunshine glare diminishes my rear screen view. It's easy to use and convenient when you want optimal photo quality and don't want to lug around a lot of gear. This is my every day point and shoot camera for day and night, landscape or faces. Best investment I have made all year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from I am so glad I bought this camera. I will soon be going to the Galapagos and wanted another camera with a longer zoom to go with my sony rx-10. I also needed a camera with an evf because of bright sun, and did not want a camera that required changing lenses. This camera has exceeded my expectations. I have been practicing by taking shots of hawks and geese and the autofocus is very quick with the hand held zoom. At full zoom it can take longer to focus, but by pulling back a little I have some very clear and sharp pictures. This is a solid pocket camera for anyone. It is easy to set-up and use and the evf is a bonus at this price. I am in my 70's and used Canon cameras for years and am gradually switching over to Sony. I have no regrets with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dick from A little package with a lot of tech It is a great camera with many features. I can deal with most of technology having some experience. My wife will have to do some learning. I bought it for her. A SIMPLE point and shoot may have been a better choice for her. This little package, out performs my heavy, large body unit with a bag full of lens. It makes me wonder why I should keep it. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX 80 is an excellent camera for quality photography.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DGHayner from My review of the Sony HX-80 First off this camera is an excellent for the price for a carry about point and shoot with a popup view finder. The cameras long zoom lens will take a little getting used to, at 720 mm can be a little hard to handle but it does work well and allows you to get some great zoom pictures. This camera is a 1/2.3 sensor which is you standard point and shoot size and will not go much beyond an 8X10 print, yes you can do bigger but your print will get mushy at some point..If you want to blow up your shots then be aware of the camera specifications. At $350.00 with all the bells and whistles of a much more expensive camera is great buy. If you want to enlarge your prints and to get much better quality then consider a camera with a 1 inch sensor or bigger. The cost of the camera will go up substantially with the larger sensor..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from By far the best point and shoot traveler camera I used to own Sony HX50 but need to find a replacement. The new HX80 now has a pop up view finder which is very helpful in bright light. The photos quality is sharp and clear almost comparable with my Nikon D5000 DSL under good lighting. It is very fast in focusing even at telephoto range. It is very fast initiating the first shot making it a good impromptu camera when traveling. The 30x zoom is so useful in framing a good capturing shots during travel. The steady shot works well. At 720mm telephoto, picture quality does deteriorate but this is expected with a small sensor. This small and well built point and shoot camera, so light that you can easily fit into your pocket and did not even feel the weight will be a wonderful choice to bring with you in any trip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Juan from Good pocket camera Sony still my first choice for price, and quality the camera has good features for a pocket camera with possibilities to practice the basic photography knowledge before jump into a reflex or a more professional equipment. i have been using it almost every day since approximately 1 year ago and the camera still wihtout any problem. camera had few injuries after fall down due to the use during some sports activities, and still without any deficit. I had the 90 ( stolen) and compared with that one the only missed thing is the GPS and the objective zoom. the size is adequate for a daily use allowing you to carry the camera always without any discomfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Don from Great Quality in small package! I, too, could not imagine the results I have obtained using this compact camera. I recently returned from a trip to Italy, found this camera to do everthing my Digtal SLR can do without having tote around lenses and other gear. I would recommend this to anyone who is planning a trip. It will lighten your load, AND it will give you quality exposures which can be greatly enlarged withou sacrficing clarity! I am most impressed, and give an excellent recommendation.

Sony HX80 Review

Sony HX80 Preview -- First Impressions

by Jeremy GrayPreview posted: 03/08/2016Updated: 05/31/2017

If you've been interested in the Sony HX90V but would like something more affordable, then you should take a look at the newly-announced Sony HX80 compact high-zoom camera. The Sony HX80 is basically an HX90V without GPS capabilities and a control ring around the lens.

Along with the Sony HX90V, the HX80 is the only compact high-zoom camera (with 30x optical zoom or greater) with a retractable built-in electronic viewfinder. Further, Sony is reporting that the HX80 is the world's smallest 30x optical zoom camera with a built-in EVF. The Sony HX80 is definitely compact with dimensions of 4.02 x 2.29 x 1.40 inches (102 x 58 x 36 mm) and a weight of 8.6 oz. (245g) with battery and Memory Stick DUO included.

The Sony Cyber-shot HX80 looks very similar to the HX90V, which itself shares a similar style with the premium RX100-series, so many photographers should be pleased and familiar with the HX80's appearance. The only notable difference in the camera body between the HX80 and HX90V, as mentioned earlier, is that the former does not have a control ring around the lens.

Providing the 30x optical zoom is a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* branded lens with eleven elements in ten groups, including five aspherical elements. The 4.1-123mm lens provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-720mm and a maximum aperture range of f/3.5-6.4. The HX80's generous focal length multiplier comes from its 18.2-megapixel 1/2.3"-type Exmor R CMOS sensor. The HX80 also has 5-axis optical SteadyShot image stabilization to help minimize the effects of camera shake for both stills and video.

Inside the camera is a BIONZ X image processor that drives both still and video capture. The HX80's native ISO range is 80-3200 and is expandable to 6400 and 12,800 for stills. Like the HX90V, the Sony HX80 cannot capture RAW images. Images can be captured at up to 10 frames per second (fps) for 10 frames. Full HD (1920 x 1080) video can be recorded at up to 60fps including in XAVC S format at 50 Mbps.

Along with the HX90V, Sony states that the HX80 is the only high-zoom compact camera with a retractable electronic viewfinder. Like the HX90V, the Sony HX80's built-in EVF utilizes a 0.2" 638,400-dot OLED display. The EVF provides 100% frame coverage, 0.5x magnification (35mm eq.), and offers adjustable brightness control. If you would prefer to use the monitor, the HX80 has a 3" 921,600-dot TFT LCD that tilts up to 180 degrees.

In addition to the built-in EVF, there is also a retractable built-in flash. The flash is able to sync with the camera's shutter speed throughout its full 30s to 1/2000s range and has a maximum range of 0.3 to 5.4 meters (W) and 2.5 to 3.0 meters (T) at ISO Auto.

Autofocus is provided via contrast-detection but unfortunately the Sony HX80 does not provide users the option to manually focus like the HX90V does. Autofocus sensitivity is rated from 2 EV to 16 EV at an ISO 100 equivalent. The Cyber-shot HX80 also has face detection and an auto macro focusing mode. Focus area options include wide, center, flexible spot (small, medium, or large), and expanded flexible spot.

Exposure metering modes include multi pattern, center-weighted, and spot and there is up to 3 EV of exposure compensation available. The Sony HX80 offers users a wide array of exposure modes: Intelligent Auto, Superior Auto, Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Shutter Speed Priority, Manual, three Memory Recall exposure modes, and Movie Mode (which itself offers Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Shutter Speed Priority, and Manual modes). In addition to these exposure modes, there are also creative modes including panorama and scene selection shooting modes. There are also creative Picture Effects available for both stills and movies.

To utilize Sony's PlayMemories mobile applications, the HX80 has built-in Wi-Fi and NFC. The camera is powered by an NP-BX1 battery and records images to MS Duo, MS PRO Duo, SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards. Memory Stick Micro and microSD cards can also be used with the appropriate adapters. Battery life is rated at 390 still images when using the monitor and 360 when using the pop-up EVF, identical to the HX90V. The Sony HX80 has Multi Micro USB 2.0 and Micro (Type-D) HDMI terminals, with the former also used to charge the battery in-camera.

The compact Sony HX80 will be available from April 2016 and will retail for approximately US$350, pricing it between $50 and $80 under the HX90V depending on the retailer.
