Yeah, if only the whole world were well lit all the time! :-)

I have two FX1s and an HC1 and like the latter for some things, but it's no comparison to the bigger cameras overall.

As you know, I had an HC1 and now have an HC3 and the HC3 blows away the HC1 in terms of picture quality IMO.

He's right. The HC1 and the FX1 are almost indistingusihable in good light.

I love the HC3.

Blows away? That's funny considering how I thought the hc3 looked worse and interpolated more pixels.

Like I said, if only everything were well lit all the time.

My first car was a four-cylinder Nissan Sentra which could burn rubber in first gear, but I knew it wasn't the same as a decent sports car. :-)
