Hi Everyone, I currently have a Canon HF200 which has served be well although I am not too thrilled with its indoor ability and also offers very narrow angle for shooting and indoors I cannot always compose the shots properly. Now I have been considering the Panasonic SD90 however I have also seen the Sony HX9V which has good reviews and basically I would prefer a 2 in 1 device. the HX9V also does 1920x1080 50/60p same as the SD90 I believe and also offers wide angle. So my main question is if anyone has used the HX9V solely as a camcorder do you miss a proper camcorder or does it do sufficiently well for general recording of say kids/parties, general vidoes of family etc. I am a point and shoot person so I havent really used many of the manual features of the HF200 hence I wouldnt need lots of manual settings as long as the video quality of HX9V is near enough HF200/SD90 I would be happy and added bonus is that I can take good photos with it also which I cannot do with say HF200. Many thanks for your help and advice.
