Re: New graphics card or Camera?
The Hx100v is not any better, nor is any "superzoom." The only way they can fit such an extreme zoom range is because the sensor crop factor is extremely high. The optics are also going to be very subpar in anything with such a range. And you can forget about things like macro, portraits, shallow DOF effects, etc.
At £300, you're not going to get anything new that's any good. Either buy used SLR gear or save more money. £600-700 will get you a new entry-level body and 2 lenses. Maybe a bit less if you shop around.
