Comment:
I really do love this camera. I've taken some fantastic pictures with it, particularly in low or difficult lighting situations. I also have the previous generation HX30. While I love the extra zoom on the 50, the lower megapixels on the same size sensor in the 30 actually renders better photo quality in some cases. The Tut exhibit shots I took with the HX30 are near-pro quality; I haven't done quite as well with the HX50.

Comment:
I bought my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX50V because of the fast focusing, 3-way stabilization and 30x zoom in a small, light camera! I am thrilled to have amazing low light performance. Also, the Soft Skin setting is the best I have ever seen - it makes all adults look at least 10 years younger. I'm gonna keep taking picutes of my pix 'til I'm a teenager agail...lol! Seriously I love this camera. It's my 4th digital and it'll probably be my companion for a long time. I'm taking it on vacation soon ... will update this review once we return.
