great focus on apple, but the only thing i dont like its always depending on the auto focus of camera... maybe cant get a focus where u wanna

like on the xmas balls, if u wanna the focus on the back ball, the gold one, its hard to do, if u can...

but i still buy the hx5v, i wanna a pocket camera, that i can take good pictures at partys, discos, vacations, and can carry easy

you can "manually" focus - touch with finger at screen ... that's all!
No other camera allows more simple focussing!

I think HX5 "is the same" - but without touchscreen + with 10x zoom + unnecessary GPS. And cheaper :-}
Same sensor and ~ same quality. Both are good cameras. With excellent video - best for these small things. TX7 is my every-day-in-my-pocket :-)

You caused me to buy this camera, even though it wasn't what I thought I wanted. I am sure it is your skills rather than the camera that has most to do with it.

Actually I would have liked the gps information and more zoom but the small size is terrific and the touch screen is working great right now. I expect the touch screen performance will get worse over time as that has been my experience with other devices. Also the Tx7 was instock today. No waiting.

I enjoyed looking at your photos. Are you shooing any of them in full auto mode, or always with some "adjustment"?

I never use automode, only P, most 125 ISO, thats all.

There I used some other modes, but never auto, never motive - all freehand, only resized with IrfanView.







hehe, graveyard ...

I just wanted to add my comment on the TX7. I've compared images side to side between the TX1 and TX7 in all different lighting and ISO and can not notice any difference in the still images that both cameras produce. I was hoping the TX7 had manual focus since I saw it listed in a few spec sheets, but it doesn't. To me, the only improvement in the TX7 is the AVCHD video which seems smoother and the larger, higher resolution LCD.... Oh, the TX7 also has a wider view lens which may be a plus for some people.

cybershotnut-

I feel the same there is not much difference between the TX1 and the TX7. The difference is the photographer, as DonalDuc has shown quite well.
