The sample photos are amazing. I wonder which mode they used to take them (Auto or Manual).

why would you buy this over the HX5 for the same price? Genuinely interested for reasons.

From the reviews, most say they chose this because it was noticeably smaller, lighter and compact than the HX5 and it recorded cleaner low-noise movies in low-light due to bigger aperture. It also has a better (although smaller) LCD panel. Others said it apparentally has a different CMOS sensor which is reputedly better.

I bought it for the low-light advantage since I mainly shoot videos indoors and the mrs thought it looked sexier than the HX5 design. I wanted a point and shoot (i've got a DSLR for more serious stuff) and didn't need the limited manual modes the HX5v has (although the advanced OIS and 10x zoom would've been handy).

Cold cheaper at a few other palces

Thank you for at least posting examples rather than just writing a blanket statement. That's the kind of discussion that is constructive and helps people find the best deal for a given product.

By the way, Jessops and Amazon (direct, not market traders) are selling for £199.99 as far as I can see.

I was on my moby earlier so couldn't post links, as you can see loads of places cheaper like i said.

Anyhoo i am interested in his camera and have been following prices from xmas time , £175 at Novatech is the best price from a trusted seller

Just to let everyone know, if you are willing to wait a couple months longer, the newer model will be released - the SONY WX7 sony.co.uk/pro…wx7

The WX7 will be loads more money and 16.2mp is a bit over the top, the WX5 was £250 at xmas can see the WX7 being £300 to start with easily

Ok I see, fair enough. Anyway its a great camera, the video mode, handheld twilight mode and 10 fps shooting has made me very pleased I got this, you won't regret it. Hopefully the price drops even more once the WX7 is out.
