Hi How would the quality of a cropped photo from RX10 VI at full zoom compare to the quality of a fully zoomed photo of my old camera? Would the details in the photo be better in the Sony? Can anybody make an estimate based on the specs? My old camera is a Canon Powershot SX130 IS. It has a 1/2.3" sensor, 12x zoom (28mm-336mm eq) f3.4-5.6, 12 megapixels.

So, I decided to upgrade. I purchased the Nikon D3200. Body only. I'll get lense...
Question: When shooting video with the HS30 and the max limit of 29 minutes is reached, does recording stop altogether? Or, does it pick up where it left off and automatically start recording to a new file?Although I like much of what I read about the HS30, its user manual says, "Recording ends automatically when the movie reaches maximum length" which, according to specs at, is 29 minutes.If that's true, it's a deal-killer for me. One thing I love about my Panasonic Lumix...
