Does the hx-9 allow an ac adaptor to power the Sony to work the whole ca?

Understanding only in playback is allowed.

What I really need to know if I can hookup dc to run the cam recrding video. Unlimited...

WxR9 when plugged in to the ac, only playback is allowed. What stops me from my purchase. Knowing extra bats can be purchased.

What also stops me is the 30 min limit, and file size .

Fishy, it's my understanding that all of these cameras (incl. Panasonic TS10/TZ20, TS7/TZ10, Canon SX230 etc.) all have 29 minute limits on continues filming in video mode to avoid EU camcorder taxes. The HX7 has the same limitation on the AC adaptor (only for playback and charging) as the WX9--my guess is the HX9 has the same limitation as well, but maybe someone here can say definitively.

By the way, I know one of your issues with the WX9 was the font size and and sized of the record icon in video mode. On the HX7, if you set the camera to "easy" mode in the menu and press the record button for video, the font size is much larger.

Also, I know you returned the wx9 and are back to using the Aiptek and kodak's for filing the hobby champ videos. I miss the wx9 videos--the 25mm lens and better overall quality really did look nice. The reviews on the HX9 are really stellar--I have yet to see a professional review that didn't consider it one of the best digital point and shoots of all time. Why don't you try it out to at least see what the hype is all about???

I am at 95 percent purchasing. I am looking for a Bestbuy discount with my giftcard. I had 10 percent off.....

The WX9 ac plug was only on playback, not live recording. not like the kodak etc... Guess I have to give in lol.

never upset

I will live with 29 minutes

I will live with the battery time.

But I must see if the Hx7 font in easy mode is like that on the HX9 you mention

Maybe I missed it on the wx9 hmm.

I loved to go into BB or circuitcity, etc, today I hate crouds LOL.

I am going to concider it a locked deal real real soon

thank you for the support Set.............

1. How many ways are there to transfer Files from cam to Pc or mac, and how many ways are there offile names.

2. With Zoom the cam has 16X plus with optical digital is at 64X total. with different pixal settings

3 cam setting of feature and functions are laid out , a little confusing and must be learned, Spin wheel is not a full function spinwheel.

4. Top spinwheel if left out would have been a perfect placement for SHutter and Zoom. where Shutter and zoom area may have been a good place for the spinwheel. Other sony cams settings are funtional not the HX9 kind hard to explain.

these are just some of my converns good bad ugly
