        I am too confused which 1 i have to buy. ?
        9v OR 100V

        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!
