They can be very hard to find in stores, but the Panasonic FX60/65 is fairly quick and has good IQ. As Sarah already noted, the IQ of the Sony WX1 is not so hot. Most unfortunate, that model was otherwise a promising design effort.

Just to pop in with some info... Consumer Reports says that most HD cameras don't even campare to the lowest HD camcorder in video quality, this is one reason I went with the SX120 for my wife because I already have a camcorder.

You are 100% correct. HD on a digital camera is of far less image quality than can be obtained with even the entry level camcorders. I have lots of cameras, but if I want video and grab my camcorder.

Perhaps it is the convenience factor that has created quite a stir about HD video, I am not quite sure.

i guess it comes down to. its better to have a mediocre HD video because you had your digicam with you vs. no video at all.
