Sony HX9V Going Back - It Royally Sucks
May 9, 2011

Ok, I am so disappointed now with Sony as far as the way I work. All I wanted was a big zoom compact. Great!

Here are the issues and well the deal breaker with the HX9V. You can not set file compression as it is automatic. You should be able to set the best JPEG file which is one function. The megapixel is separate. So I want 16 MP and the least amount of file compression or best JPEG.

I called Sony and B&H where I got the camera. I am not at all upset at B&H, just disappointed in the camera. Yes, they have tons of cameras but for me this is not a small issue. As I was finishing up with Sony on the phone they wanted me to register the camera. I said, no need I am returning the camera today.

I also understand the Nikon S9100 works the same way as this Sony model.

I'll figure it out, but for those that may have been shooting for years it seems this is the new way of things in this class of camera. Too bad...
