My pocket digicam was stolen in Mexico recently, so I need a quick replacement before my next trip. Quick!
I've always been a Canon fella, so my default buy would be the newish Elph 300HS
, but I can't help but see that another brand I trust has released the similar-specced Sony DSC-HX9V
I've waffled back and forth between these for a day and a half. Both meet my minimum needs (full-size SD card, HD video, good OSX support, good optical zoom and long-life battery) but neither is standing out for me. I like fast-to-shoot, too (get that shot before the opportunity passes) and both promise that.
Can anyone with experience with either model give me a nudge, especially toward any minuses
I may not be aware of? I'm not a pro by any means, just a picky wanderer who likes to kill an afternoon or two shooting architecture or drunken friends, sometimes in concert.
I'll also take guidance toward any other similar-featured tiny cams in the "high-end consumer" space. The iPhone is good enough for the cheapie shots.
Thanks to help!
