Re: But the HX deficiencies don't put you off?

Probably no RAW in the Sony, unfortunately. That's the only flaw I could find, but it's not really a flaw so much as a design and marketing decision.

For me, there are other flaws [and marketing decisions] with the Sony HX series:

  • Painterly effect (just Google "hx200V painterly")
  • Lack of hot shoe
  • Lack of filter threads
  • Lack of remote control capability

I'm not saying th HX isn't capable of good photographs, just that it isn't necessarily that much better nor is it always better.  Use the image comparison tools on this and other sites and you'll see what I mean.
