Now, I'm looking at a couple of new compacts and I think I have it narrowed down between the more up-to-date Lumix DMC-ZS10 and the new Sony DSC-HX9V. From what I've read, they both have a longer 16x zoom lens than my old Lumix, but the image sharpness on the Sony is a little better. They also are priced the same. So, I just need to look at the specs a little more for each and go from there. I see a few different sites are out of stock on the Sony one, so that might either mean it's a better camera or people just like to buy the latest and greatest thing out there.
If anyone out there knows of a good compact with an excellent zoom that can also auto-bracket exposures, let me know. I'd really like to see if there's anything out there that's worth looking at that is similar in size to these. I really value your opinions, so let me know and thanks for dropping by!
