Very good review indeed ! I'm in great tentation to replace my Sony HX9V with the F900EXR (as I have  a good  souvenir of my shots with my old F200 EXR)

2 questions please ! Have this camera the total  silent mode (no flash , no sounds)  ?  Can you add a 5 seconds memo voice to the shots  to memorize for example  the location , the name of one person, the name of one square, one monument ?

Thank you

1. Yes, the F900EXR does have a silent mode that will disable the sounds, speaker and AF illumination light.

2. No, there is no voice memo feature.   I really wish there was; it would help to record a note about places visited as you said.

John, it's strange that a so useful feature is now forgotten in 99% of the cameras. As I use the camera in travel abroad or also in Italy. when I need to memorize a place, the name of one square, church, person or any other information I need to have a pen and a piece of paper !! Frankly my old Panasonic TZ7 was much better  : 5 seconds immediately after the shot or 30 seconds in review mode and the most important was that in the PC  the memo record  show exactly the shot in reference . The only alternative is to take a 5/10 seconds video with your voice that explain the  details  of the shot .

Hard life indeed for the travel photographers !
