Hi all, I've successfully connected my HX 50 and Galaxy S5 to transfer photos using the play memories app, but when I try to go into the remote control mode, the centre of the phone screen just shows a twizzling circular 'loading' symbol. Any help greatly appreciated. --How the heck did I end up with this username? :-)
I have owned each of the HX series since version HX5V and the low light performance just kept getting better. (I also owned several Panasonics - the Sony HX of the same generation always did better in low light.) Owners of the HX5V may remember low light was the selling point of the HX series. The best one is my HX20V(18.2mp), absolutely superb low light performance, both in picture quality and autofocus relilability. Then I got the HX50V (20.4mp) and like many other users, I found it had...
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...
