Walter,...The "IS mode" I referred to was image stabilization. I've heard since then that the V8 doesn't have IS during video, only for stills. I wish I could have given the V8 more extensive testing. I guess now I'm kind of in a holding pattern till the new Canons and the V9 come out.

In real life, I'm not a very picky guy but when it comes to the camera I have in my shirt on quail hunting trips, I don't like to compromise. I've tried "better" cameras than my old A710 but none measured up. All were more complicated to manage. The A710 can be removed from my pocket, turned on, changed from still to video and zoomed with only one hand. The Viewfinder is handy too. The only place it doesn't cut the mustard is zooming during video but that's fairly easy to work around.

Yesterday I was experimenting with the image stabilization for stills. It was amazing. I can now shoot telephoto images out of a driving vehicle (my wife's at the wheel, not me!) and get excellent, sharp shots. I could even get sharp images at the VGA 35.1x 'telephoto'.

This morning I tested handheld video but as you note, it doesn't seem to do image stabilization so it was very jerky.

Cheers
