              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!
