My standard work cam

Adjuster - take lots of shots - most of the roof ones add the hazy filter known as CHALKY Fingers...   These Sony HX5Vs just hold up well.  10X zoom, 2mp file - decent autofocus - snap snap snap...  I've had 4 of them - they last about 35K and the zoom motors go out.  The.7V and 9V don't last as long.

Batteries - work well - if lots of flash - get backups - the knockoffs don't last as long - but are pennies on the dollar.

I'll buy more when the current one dies.  I do have TransferJet stuff - so I may be inclined to try a 10V/20V/30V if the price (on ebay) is right.

For those wanting a cheap P&S and decent buffer to grab the kid's tumbling - you will need to lock the autofocus before - as it losses it from a distance -but it will shoot pretty quickly (short burst).
