Need a compact travel zoom, dyzzing choices. Recommendations?
Aug 14, 2013

I have an aging Canon SX20 that I'd like to replace. I don't need 20x zoom, but greater than 10x. I want full 1080p30 HD and as good still images as I can get. And it has to slide into a belt pouch or pocket. Cost less than $500.
I know that cost is far more than these typically cost. and I'm find paying for better images. I tried the P770 but it was very slow to operate, and the zoom is not that long. But if you could get the P7700 with a 12x, and make it snappy to operate while keeping the great image & video quality, I wouldn't need to post this question.

Advice?
