I have given a good account of the path I took to get to buy the HX60V here

First Impressions : I like the feel of the camera - having a smaller maybe more stylish camera has litterally forced me to grip hard previously and this is the right amount of bulk. In keeping with the style of the moment a vintage squared off look exists with textured grip that I like. You can fit it well inside a jacket pocket but I don't consider it a trouser pocket sized camera.
