I
tried Nikon P510 (made in china) and was not amazed, slow menus, slow
everything and very loud zoom-mechanism. I quickly delivered it back to
the store the next day.

Then I took home Sony HX200V, fast, responsive and excellent auto
photo settings, very good white blending and natural colors.. The flash
lights up a huge area and makes really nice coloring and exposure
levels!

I dont even bother to think of trying any other, I stick with this
nice camera that is a really good update after my old DSC-P120! (made in
Japan)
