Best VFM Compact Megazoom.

Been using it for 4 months. In my opinion, it betters the competitors. I've scaled down the resolution @ 10mp due to size issues and also due to the fact that I don't need a larger resolution but clarity and detailing is still awesome. Zoom is fabulous - clear zoom more so. Video is blur-free and super smooth. Even 720p recording is great and enough to be viewed on a 32 inch LCD. A whole no. of shooting mode is there but a normal traveler won't need that much. Flash is quite strong as well - can lit up things 18-20 feet away. Low light photography exceeded my expectations. A host of other unexplored features are there as well but not needed for a traveler. Picture quality might not be up to professional mark but way better than other compact mega zooms. No need to go for its elder sibling HX 20V which is substantially costlier. I'd recommend it to everybody.


Internal memory could've been greater.
Processor could've been 15-20% faster.
GPS is not that great.
