I believe who posted the final decision that Sony DSC-HX100v is a runner
up – does not know what he is talking about..

Look at the videos here:

http://www.frys.com/product/6638824

 

DSC-HX100v camera
has stitching panoramic mode and 3D and has10X faster shutter than DSC-HX9v (DSC-HX9v takes 2 sec and displays “Writing to
card” after a shot is being taken).

I was in store playing with both cameras for an hour..

The only draw back for travel is the bigger size…. That’s
it!

 

DSC-HX100v is a Wiiinnnneerrr…!Period!
