Default What should I buy?

I recently sold my Panasonic fz35 to buy myself a Sony A350 dslr. Now I am in need of a camera with HD video capabilities. Only three models have come to my mind in this regard. First, Panasonic fz100, next Canon sx30 and Fujifilm HS 20. Please help me choose a proper camera. I want my equipment with good IMQ upto 400 ISO and excellent hd video quality. Thanks for your suggestions in advance.

The new DSLR's have no video capability?

The FZ-100 is a nice camera and one worth considering. Unfortunately the new video camcorders have no essential view finder these days and a camera with a good view finder is important.

I have an FZ100 which does excellent video as well as photos.
There is a short vid on Flckr : http://www.flickr.com/photos/16198049@N07/5677657058/ although Flickr seems to lower the quality a bit.

Fz40 Vs Fz100. What one should consider ?
As per reviews, if you are looking for video Fz100 is right choice, but if you want IQ and better ISO then Fz40 is right.

If you are just looking for video, I would buy a video camera.

among those 3 cameras i would go for fz100. Because it has video recording in manual mode. so you can change shutter speed, aperture, exposure and many more things while shooting.
In love with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 !!
