very confusing how the canon powershot SX260 H beats the sony cybershot HX20V, yet the HX10V beats the SX240 H by a mile and the only difference between the SX260 and 240 is the GPS ? far to simplistic comparisons and some of the information is contradicting between the two results. Does however hi-light some points and goes to show its by no means a simple process.
