I have been looking for a new camera since my Canon SD880 got busted (the LCD broke when I dropped it) a few months ago. After some reading online, it came down to Canon SX230HS and Sony DSC-HX9V . I chose the Sony because of the best-in-class video capabilities. When I saw a sale at Costco for the HX9V with a case and a 4GB for $260, I decided to get it.
Here are some pictures that I took so far. I also took some 3D pictures, but haven’t uploaded them.
And here’s a video. It’s shot in 1080p @ 60 frames per second. But YouTube only plays back at 30 fps. So it’s not as smooth as the actual clip.
