But see what I did wrong on my video at link to be posted after this. I didn't carry my tripod and didn't add a wind noise reducer. It would have looked about the same on all those models.
Trying to choose between 3 cameras. Canon 280hs, Panasonic ZS30 and Sony hx50v. I will be visiting a lot of national parks so zoom is important. Most articles say the Canon has the best image quality under all conditions. I will primarily taking outdoor daylight pictures, and having some enlarged. Under those conditions should the image quality be basically equal between all of them? If so I am leaning towards the Sony.
