"Also, using the supplied Sony PMB software, while viewing a 1920 x 1080 video, you can "capture" a frame at the full 1920 x 1080 size. "

You do not even need the software: In the camera, while playing ,say, a 108060p video, click the bottom of the wheel. You will get a control panel with pause, slow-mo, etc. But you also get a tab for just taking a still from the video. So, you can advance frame by frame and when you like what you see, click and you get the full 1920x1080 frame as a jpeg in the camera.

These 108060p Hx9v clips are downloadable (join Vimeo for free) and are unaltered from the originals:

Hey guys

So currently I own a Samsung TL500 as my portable camera that I use when I dont feel like carrying around my Nikon D300s. Though I love it to death, I realize that its not the camera for me and im looking into getting an ultra-zoom and came across the hx9v and I just have one question for those of you who actually own it

Ive read countless reviews, and about half of them love the camera, and the other half is divided into two sections. Either they still like the camera but they are dissappointed with the image quality, and the other is they straight up hate it because of how bad the image quality is.

For those of you who actually own this camera: Is the camera quality really that horrid? Some people say that the pictures are way too soft. I've looked at some sample photos and I see nothing wrong. Idk I would just like some feedback from regular people.

I would suggest you primarily check out the "professional" reviews such as:

http://www.photographyblog.com/revie...c_hx9v_review/

http://www.ephotozine.com/article/so...a-review-16476

and others, if you haven't already.

The HX9V is a "point and shoot" camera - one should not expect the highest image quality from any camera in this area. Its IQ is not the best in the category nor is it the worst.

I suggest you look at original sized images posted by HX9V owners and make your decision based on your own opinion of them. Don't let some "pixel peeper" convince you they are trash and don't let someone who would leave the lens cover on the camera on when trying to take pictures tell you they are the greatest ever.

I can say this: if you are mainly going to look at them at "screen size" or on an HDTV (whatever size), and you aren't zooming in to see the minutest detail, the images are reasonably good.

Hello guys

I recently bought this Cam and explore a little. AFAIK this is the best cam i would've got at this budget.. However i did explore some bits here and there, but couldn't find a way to understand some of the functionality.. It would be great if someone respond to my queries

1) In "M" - manual mode, there are 4 icons at the bottom viz
a) ISO - Easy enough to understand
b) Next to it, there is a number ranging from 4 to 64.. What does it represent ? the icon guide doesn't provide any useful information
c) Next is F3.3 to some number.. What is the significance of this ?
d) EV value - I guess this cannot be changed

2) Also if i want to take a long exposure shot, can i do it with HX9V?

Kindly let me know.. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance..

Hey sbhas2k - welcome to the board.

Item "1b" is the shutter speed and should go from 30 seconds to 1/3200.

Make sure you have the camera in "burst setting" - "Single".

Item "1c" is the F-stop which should have a second setting of "F 8.0" at Wide Zoom.

If you aren't familiar with these terms, you should do some basic photography research.

Item 2 - the longest you can set the exposure is 30 seconds, so yes, you can take a somewhat long exposure.

In the last weeks I saw more and more pros taking an interest in the Sony HX9V and the class leading 60/50 fps @1080p mode.
It is amazing what a pro can do shooting and editing.
