HX100V - shot to shot and focus tracking?
Jun 9, 2011

Hi All

I'm looking to get a HX100V as a family camera for days out with little ones instead of lugging around my Nikon D7000 and a couple of lenses.

But my main concern is not image quality, sharpness etc but focus tracking mode effectiveness (running children) and how quickly you can take pictures consecutively (eg not waiting a second or so between shots, and I don't mean burst mode speed).
How have you guys found this - think it would be OK?

My current compact, Canon S95, is just too slow to focus and no good for fast moving kids! (other thoughts are a Nikon P500)

Many thanks
