Zoom ability between Sony HX30V vs RX100
Jul 12, 2012

Hi,

Quick question on these 2 compact P&S models- if the HX30V has a much stronger zoom of 20x compared to RX100's 3.6x, should I be leaning towards the HX30V if I plan to use the camera for taking photos at concerts and sport matches? RX100 has a decent digital zoom, but the IQ will drop as a result.

Based on the specs or user experience, will the RX100 outperform the HX30V on non-long range photos?

I read on one of the threads that 90% of shots taken between these 2 cameras wont even be noticeable, how true is this? There is a noticeable price difference between the 2 models.

I have tried out both models in store and am impressed by the IQ on both.

Thanks
