HX9V - my new concert camera
Sep 8, 2011

I've had HX9V for 3 days. Took it to a Heart/Def Leppard concert today and it exceeded my expectations. My old sneak-it-to-a-concert camera Panasonic ZS3 is declared officially retired and passed to my in-laws.

HX9V did everything that I needed with flying colors.
1) fast autofocus in low light - CHECK

2) long battery life (I took 450 photos and 10 vides and my battery still shows full) - CHECK
3) 1080p videos - CHECK
4) Shutter Speed Priority required for concerts photography - CHECK
5) Small size factor - CHECK

And here is how far I was sitting
