The Sony DSC-HX100V is a small camera with a great zoom. It has 30x zoom which makes it a great camera for all occasions.
When I go to a concert and I am sitting far from the stages I can zoom in pretty close to the artists.
This is how far away from the artist I was standing when I zoomed in, as you can see the artist looks pretty small from where I sat:
Another concert I have been on is with Lionel Richie and I was sitting maybe more than 50 meters away from him. This is a favorite picture of mine.
This camera is good when it is daylight but also sunsets:
It is easy to take pictures, it goes fast which is necessary when taking picture of for example animals:
So I think I proved my point with this camera. A great zoom is getting you closer to the object and Sony DSC-HX100V does what it suppose to do. It is not even the newest version. Now there must be even more improved cameras and better zoom maybe even 50x.
Even macro is good with this camera. You can come very close to small objects and still get clear pictures like below is shown:
Even landscape photography goes well with this camera:
I also like to add that the filming is recording in stereo sound. This mean that it wont make big noise when you are playing the video, no noise disturbance. You will be able to hear a clear sound and not like if you would have recorded with your mobile and only hear the base sounds. This camera is great for concerts.
The Tamron 90 mm 2.8 macro lens is a superb lens to have. It is a good lens for taking pictures of insects, flowers and portraits etc but do not limit yourself only to those objects. This lens is good for so many more things. That I will prove here.
I have also found that it takes good picture in sport events. For example when I took pictures in a dance competition it took clear pictures even if the dancers were moving fast. That means it is a fast lens as well.
Have you ever tried to catch a clear picture of fireworks but failed? I know the feeling. With this lens you will be able to get clear pictures of fireworks because the lens gives detailed pictures of the object you take. Check it out:
Here are some examples that I have taken with the Tamron 90 mm:
