Sony HX9V for $299

Sony HX9V

B&H has the Sony HX9V point and shoot camera for $299 right now.  The HX9V is probably the best do-it-all point and shoot camera.  It captures great 16.2MP still images and captures HD video up to 1080/60p.   Unfortunately, I have not gotten around to completing my review of the HX9V; however, I give it high marks all around and think that it is worth every penny of the asking price.

Note that you’ll have to add the camera to your cart to see the deal price, which is good through Dec. 10.
