Let the HX1 go, its IQ isnt that good too.
Id look at the FZ35, FZ45 and SX30.
Well, Gordon made reviews of them all, so check them. But first write on a paper what you exactly want from your camera. Then read the reviews and give the cameras a score of how much they fit your needs.
I think that the FZ35 is the best choice, its IQ is just a bit better than the FZ45. The SX30 may like to have better IQ, but it doesnt feature RAW recording.
