If Henri Cartier-Bresson wanted a compact I think this is the one he’d choose! I got the HX9v for a specific reason – street photography and as a pocketable run & gun video tool. It’s great for journalists and documentary makers.
Here is some nicely shot G3 footage, seems to have been shot in 720/50p mode. 720p on the G3 is roughly equivalent in resolution to 1080p on the Canon 5D Mark II.
