After 2 months, this camera continues to impress me.

Summary: I did a great deal of research before choosing the Sony HX20V camera. This camera had a superior rating from all the photo-review sites, which allowed me to directly compare the Sony to many other brands -- feature-by-feature. Professional photographers will note that there is no "raw" format, and techies will note that there is no Wi-Fi connection (that is offered in a later version). Neither was important to me.
Summary: My second camera like this, as I dropped the first one into salt water, (don't recommend this!) and OH.....ruined it!! This purchase was a replacement for the other one. Love this little camera. Has great picture quality and lots of whistles and bells. I own a larger Nikon digital, but use this little one the most. Very versatile camera. I highly recommend.
Excerpt: I tested out this camera for 3 days and although I ended up going for a higher end model (at twice the price) I must say I was impressed with how much was packed into this little camera for such a low price. The grip is excellent and the camera feels solid in your hand. Unfortunately the only gripe I have is with the quality of the buttons which feel a bit cheap.
Summary: I searched for a camera for over a year and finally settled on this model. It has all of the features I wanted and then some. I haven't found anything that I dislike about my new camera. This wasn't the newest model but the newer models did not have all of the features that I wanted.
Really fun to play with the options with awesome picture and video quality!

Summary: A bit more options than most travel zooms, but there are somethings for everyone. Really love this camera! Picture quality is amazing for stills and video, once you set it up properly. Flash range is perfect for daylight fill flash. Group pictures are no problems, stepping back 20ft to get the group shot is a breeze. After updating the firmware, the panorama function shows a functional panning bar that works great!
