Looking forward to your comments on the results you get once you get to know this camera a little better Sarah.... Thanx again !

I haven't been impressed with this camera from the get go. I haven't really seen the "wow" factor on any image from it. So, I'm surprised that Sarah suggests that the HX-1 is better than the FZ38. But, I don't have either one so I can't say much.

Tullio-

I see the HX-1 and FZ-35 as equally competent in their own way.

Costa-

When I found your website, I had already purchased the camera. However, I must say that your photos are impressive.

Enjoy the weekend.

Today I have a Twilight Mode for you. This was taken in the Floral Department of a local super market.

Enjoy a great weekend

Default HX1 Successor

I'm an unapologetic lover of the super zoom cameras, finding them more useful and fun than anything I've used during a lifetime of photography. I shoot both video and stills, mainly Little League or soccer games that my grandson is in, days in the field with my bird dogs, and several trips a year to Yellowstone Park. Right now, I use both a Panasonic FZ28 and a Canon SX10. I like them both. The Pany is actually my favorite but when I think I'll be doing video, out comes the Canon. The Pany video is not very good. In fact, it's not satisfactory to me. The stills from both are fine and I love the high speed burst mode in the FZ28. Even at 3mp, the pictures are pretty darn good.

I know that for my next camera, I would be happy with the FZ35. The FZs are fast handlers and lightweight. However, I'm attracted to the Sony HX1 for it's better video and better full rez burst mode. I might even find a use for Panorama shooting. The point is, though, I'm betting the successor to the HX1 is going to be very special. Judging from the specs of the HX5, there are some Sony improvements which will be incorporated and maybe something even the HX5 doesn't have. I'm actually hoping for a "pre-capture" mode in the burst shooting.

I just hope Sony stays out of the zoom race and keeps the "HX2" as a reasonably light camera,......if not, I'll probably get the HX1. Anyone know when we can expect the "HX2"?,........or what it might include?

It's nice to learn that Sarah Joyce now has the HX1. She is one of the friendliest and most qualified helpers on these forums.

Jack-

The HX-1 was introduced in May 2009, so it would be realistic to look for a replacement camera, possibly the HX-2 in May or June of 2010.

I very much like the G Lens used on the HX-1. I would be pleased if Sony used it again on the new HX-2 that would incorporate some of the advanced HX-5 technology.

Have a great tomorrow.
