I need to upgrade my camera and want a much better picture quality then my current point & shoot (Panasonic DMC-FX35). I like what the superzoom's can offer for the price, specifically the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX100V. I, however, want to make sure its picture quality is good. My other option is the Nikon D3100. My top 3 priorities are:
1. Picture Quality
2. HD Video
How close do the superzoom's come to the entry-level DSLR's?
Thanks in advance.
