OK folks I am trying to decide on the H7X or the H9X , My mama has the H7X & she loves it the camera takes amazing pictures as good as I have seen when I saw Sony had came out with a newer version H9X I like what I see & I am leaning more toward the H9X but the reviews on the flash has me kinda concerned does any of you guys that own the H9X it regret buying it due to the placement of the flash is it that big of deal or what please advise

The flash is slightly stronger on the 9V. Does anyone know if both cameras are the same in terms of video recording quality?

its totally wrong the oly difference between the two is the zoom

I've read somewhere that the HX7 can take less photos on it's battery than the HX9, I would have thought this would have been the other way round? How good is the battery of the HX7 compared to the HX9 and compared also to the rest of the market? Thanks
