After having been realeased in 2018 the DSC HX80 is 3 years old, but it is still relevant in 2021. This weekend i picked up the Sony DSC HX80 because of its tremendous price point as an open box item. So much like i did with Kodak PIXPRO AZ528 let’s breakdown and review. Neither of the Kodak PIXPRO AZ528 or this camera has an external microphone input.
Is the Sony HX80 good for vlogging? With having a monitor that flips up and being able to see yourself as you are recording a video, yes it is. Truthfully it is one of the BEST BUDGET CAMERAS FOR VLOGGING! As long as you have proper lighting and if you want to use an external mic you need a USB Capture card and a micro HDMI cord.
The best part about the GoPro was how small and discreet it was whereas the Sony DSC-HX80 is the size of a normal camera. It also doesn’t shoot very well in low light- the footage comes out very grainy. … Overall, we are VERY happy with our purchase, especially as our first “real” vlogging cameraThe Top Google Result for this Camera
