I also had a sony DSCH7, great camera, outstanding Zoom, but Im also interested on Sony HX1. If I buy A230 or A330 am I loosing zoom capability? or between Hx1 and A230/A330 is a huge difference?

Help me please

apples and oranges

The A330 is a DSLR and you can have all the zoom capability you want, but it will cost you. With the A330 and the kit lens you have a 3x zoom. To reach the zooming equivalency of the HX1, with the A330, you'd have to buy the Sony 70-400mm lens. That lens alone will cost you $1600. DSLR photography is not a cheap hobby and it takes practice and study to get good at it.
