I own the HX9V & HX20V, to own another Sony, that slowly releasing manual features a few at a time. I will still be waiting, for a better cam. I cannot see spending 1000.00 on this camera. Because I would want the extended stereo she, and especially the EVF shoe, the camera has a flash, but it looks like if you wanted to use two shoe items, you cannot?
Picture effects, and video allowed, is on the HX20V, nothing new, to us previous users? Panorama 360 on the other hand I question. If I am correct, I be tripping over my feet trying to get a snap. Since zoom is not allowed. In Pano mode picture effects is allowed, And question will be miniature/tilt shifting?
Instead of having the EV on a custom button, it is now on a separate dial, I always have an issue with these dials, over time they move off the setting you have them when stored, and taken out for a shot?
Never am I trying to sound negative. just being a owner , I grown into my camera, ad know what to expect..
I tell you what, it will not stop me from getting one, before June. but I must have WILL POWER, and say P A S S.
I will be waiting for the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX70V 2k video to be released soon, allowed to dream
