Have a sony hx20v which really produces great video.I've tried a few cameras, either in store, or purchased and returned, but nothing does as well.Thought about the hx50, but haven't tried it yet.I'm ok with Point & shoot, bridge, video camera, and would prefer to stay around $500 mark.I like the Rx100, but also have a gopro, and the rx100 doesn't give much zoom beyond the gopro.Any suggestions?Tried the panasonic zs40, and was disappointed in the video.Thanks!

last time i went to grand canyon and yosemite i didnt have a decent camera. i mainly used my phone and a cheap compact. planning to visit zion, grand canyon, bryce, death valley, yosemite, monument valley. im gonna take my rx100 and hx50 to get some better images than last time. was wondering if you think its worth taking my cheap tripod just for shooting sunsets/sunrises? what do you guys bring when you go hiking? tripod, monopod, freestyle it?

Hello, I was thinking on some pocket camera to replace my old Olympus XZ-1 (normally I use Sony Alpha 580 with tons of lenses, so my bag is very heavy), like RX100 or Fuji XQ1. In the local shop I tested HX50 for a while and started to consider it. After reading positive review I think to change the decision. HX50 is comfortable in my hand. It has fast zooming lens (zooming in range of RX100 is much faster in HX50) and some other advantages. And is much cheaper. I was surprise about one...

I am interested in getting an RX100 as my only camera (replacing an aging HX5V), and was looking at some of the threads on how to take a timelapse with it (basically, since it doesn't have a built-in intervalometer, you have to press and hold the shutter button, and let it take a burst of pictures).  My question is whether you can change the shutter speed (exposure length?) to take long-exposure pictures (say, of the night sky or something) and whether the camera is able to continue taking...

I'm thinking of buying either the RX100 ii or the HX50,  My primary use will be for vacations involving a lot of walking videos, as well as low light night time and Cave exploration videos, a good video zoom would be ideal too but i'm aware of the RX100 zoom limitations. What i would like to ask is, which camera fairs better in video mode for the above. Is the IS as good on the rx100 as it is on the hx50 when walking? And is the low light video almost as good on the hx50 as it is on the...

I can't see the files containing moving pictures (set to .mp4) in Windows Explorer when connecting to my camera.  The result is I can't download these files.  Can anybody advise, please?

What are your thoughts about the HX50 as a "pocket" camera? Is it actually something you can keep with you, or do you find it too bulky? Do you wish you had a smaller camera than the HX50 sometimes? I see a few threads here, but most seem a bit old. Has anyone lived with the HX50 for a few months and have some thoughts? The long version if you feel like reading and chatting: I've been comparing cameras for a while and I'm down to the Panasonic ZS30 or the Sony HX50V. I was almost settled on...

For reasons unknown to me, my DSC-HX5V isn't able to obtain a focus lock in just about any situation short of taking pictures in full sunlight.   When I push the shutter button half-way down, it should get a focus lock and/or use the AF illumination light to get the lock... but doesn't any more :-(  I didn't drop the camera or damage it in anyway that I am aware of. I called Sony and it'll cost me $130.04 + shipping to get it fixed or they'll give me a 15% off coupon for a new camera.  ...

I recently bought a Sony HX50. Like the camera, amazing zoom, good quality build, good features, fine stabilization. My question is: my shots look very good, but what is the general thought about the HX50 as far as quality of photo, is this too small of a sensor to produce quality shots? I need to figure out if it is a keeper- Many thanks, Krocket
