Canon SX230, Sony HX9V, and Nikon S9100 compared

Yeah, I saw that review and couldn't believe how bad the Panasonic was rated.

I have been going through the following reviews on the SX230 http://www.digitalversus.com/canon-powershot-sx230-hs-p360_10944_1.html and the HX9V http://www.digitalversus.com/sony-cyber-shot-hx9v-p360_10599_16.html , and found them to be comparable. Seems the S9100 did not fare as well. http://www.digitalversus.com/nikon-coolpix-s9100-p360_10795_31.html

A couple of minor of things...I wish the Canon had some type of grip comparable to the HX9V and I wish Canon had a wide angle lens (something more like 24-25mm) instead of the 28mm.

There are plenty of photo samples in the review. The reviewer deems the Canon to have the best picture quality, including in low light.

I am not sure I agree across the board with the review, as I can make an argument that the Sony's night shots may be better exposed (look at the bank sign).

The reviewer basically slammed the Panasonic.
