How does the HX50V or HX300 compare
Jul 23, 2014

How does the HX50 compare to the H1's? I had an H1 for 8 years and loved it.. last year the flash died and I made a stupid mistake of getting an Olympus. It went kaput after just a year and 19 days. They've agreed to go ahead and repair under warranty even though it was 19 days past but I plan on selling or gifting it when it gets back. I'm back to Sony.

I've found a HX50 around the $300 range. I want something that has a good zoom range for trips, scenery like my motorcycle trip to Colorado, something that can focus fast but still takes decent lowlight, inside pics of pets and such.

Also, what about the HX300?

So what would you're opinion be... best for around the $300 range?
Geeze, I miss my H1. Thanks for the help.
