Thank u !
I hope the problem of camera overheating during video capture has been addressed in this avataar of 5N... !
njkdo: CMOS 1/2" and ONLY 16 mpx, sorry why not 35 mpx?
there is probably an EXR and an reverse EXR mode hidden somewhere deep in the menus offering the 32 mpx adv/disadv.....not the 35mpx.though........
The panasonic FZ47/48 is probably a direct competition for the Sony DSC-HXV100 and an alternative for those who would otherwise b attracted to the HXV100!
The moving image mode, the pixel count ,the optical zoom ,the price tag ,.. all suggest the slot !however a flexible LCD is certainly DESIRABLE!
The absence of RAW out put may not be such a deterrent since the in cam Jpeg processing is generally optimum and it takes a LOT of time and effort to better it by shooting and processing RAW![However RAW option is certainly DESIRABLE]
The I.Q of the sony HXV100 at 100 % viewing is watercolor painting effect to say the least and people are still purchasing it and r happy with it [at small sized images ] If I.Q is at least as good as the FZ35 [ it is likely to better actually ] it is a winner !
Even though the HS20 [fuji ] allows for RAW recording --In reality all users of the HS20 generating images of average /above average quality are using the BINNED JPEG [medium size ] P mode !
