I have a question (as many)
Last weekend I have bought an Sony H9 after reading lots of reviews. I was going to be a Panasonic FZ50 or the Sony.
I choose the Sony because of the Zoom range and the advantage sports mode. As sony says "freez the moment"
Now I have bin testing this camera for a week and if im not satisfied I can take the camera back tomorrow.
Im very satisfied over the zoom but not over the Sports. I've tried to make good pictures of Judo and Taekwondo but in the sportsmode every picture is not sharp and very bad, if I use the burstbutton it doesn't get any better, it won't freeze the moment:(. In the S mode i can get a (bit dark) sharp picture but then I cant point and shoot. Also in the S mode I have to use the flash and it takes a lot of time befor I can take another picture. And when the flash is used on the most pictures ar very irritating visible dust marks.
I like to know if this is normal or a problem with this camera or that it is a defect of the camera I have.
If this is a normal problem I will keep this camera because I think that the Panasonic wouldn't do better in the Sports section. But if it can be a defect in this one I will take it back and I will purchase a new one.
I really love to hear your opinion because you have experience with these camera's.
