One of the camera's I own is a Sony Cybershot DSC-HX9V, bet camera if asked, for me? I updated to a HX20V. instant video then a 5-8 second start. effects added and from 18 to 20Xoptical zoom. Today the HX90V or wx500 are 30x optical zoom, less features added, taken away the vido and photo dual mode. I found that out with the WX350 I have, that replaced my HX20V. I owned a few HX20V's one broke as it fell, the other got dust in the lens spots. I totally miss the camera. and was going to update to the HX60V and stopped the sale when the HX90V came out but I again hesitated. Well I keep looking for a steal, and I got the deal?

that is all I can ask for right?

I am very happy. and hope to have more use out of it. if and when I want the newer model I'll do the same always look for a deal

Sony HX20V sells for 500.00 at one given time and as low as200. I paid around $`100.00 to me not bad. got all the bats and stuff for her. and that I am again happy.

the WX500 costs 330 seen for $265.00
the HX90V $25 seen $416.00

just not the price I am after

Got my camera, it's working that to me means the world.



Seller did not quite give what was offered and expecting a reply back? The camera has stickers that a simple wipe of some soap and water, to slowly release the glue? I ordered my ggs lcd viewfinders screen its a screen protector as well. I may also order a lens filter and protector over the added lens cover. Looking at the camera, just like I owned it I am very pleased I still want to try out the HX0V, wx500 and rx 100/4 I am contented time to remod the ear muffs on top.

Also time to look for a case as well. thanks for listening

Well took the gopro with me to. deleted all the vids oops used the feiyu G4....
By the looks I don't need to use a Gimbal Lol a quick clip.

1. I have about 6 bats now weak to strong. the one I just charged will be tossed its to short a life, but before I toss I will double check again. never know

2 took a shot quickly zoomed and filmed. BLURRY. a test is needed to verify it is just not giving the cam time. From memory it may be that but not sure?

3wee hours I call it, great shot indeed.my wx350 bad for sure. theHX20V does take a great night time shot.

4. Not happy with Seller, honesty is better than a lie...

5. price, 96.00 who can complain if it works 100%. a minor scratch on the screen. no biggie can live with it.

6 ggs screen ordered and was refunded person sells it online but does not carry it. to another seller I go. hoping not the same deal, if so the nso be it .

just some reporting nothing more.

Jake is a strong dog, His pal has passed on and we miss her, why we shoot and share video, then pass a post by. thank you for viewing and reading. those who followed or not

You think I be using my camera more and more, I do in a way. What I have is a SD card I do need to replace. 64gb should do. but if I do upgrade my cam, which I am to the HX90V, not going to even think about the RX100/IV it only does 5 minutes 5k limits, and bet no zoom is allowed, but before I do decide I may just save $100.00 and go for the WX500. may not need the extra ring and gps and view finder?

I should spend a little more time on this hobby?

Well as I recall my WX350 identical cam to this humidity focus issue lol , no longer have to worry bout that , it's cooler so more I can compare which is better for me.

I just remembered HX90Vhas a tinny audio, hm m time to go watch video's fish. see if members on youtube care to share their personal stuff vs muted sound overlayed one

youknowwhatimean!

Hi Fishy,

Getting to know a new camera is like getting to know a new woman. It takes a lot of love and patience. Have fun with your new camera and enjoy the ride.

Best regards

It's not new I owned this for quite some time, just repurchased a steal of a deal. totally agree about that. I am after the HX90v or WX500,just waiting to decide my next move.

I may take it with me as I know the limitations of my gopro. if it is not a night shot, with protunes its not gonna be worth the shot for me.

Can not take all my gear, not like I never seen a super moon before, just a fancy name news is giving old history? doesn't hurt to see if tonight's shots will count to demonstrate for myself, what my steal of a deal can do?
