Thanks for the reply.

What about major brand name cameras, for example:

Samsung SC-MM10s
Sanyo Xacti
Panasonic D-Snap

Are these not considered Hybrid?

your Best bet is to ask those questions in the sany and panasonic.

for example the

Panasonic SDR-S150 3-CCD SD Camcorder, 10x Optical 2.8" Wide LCD Screen, 3.1 Mega Pixel Still Camera

its a vid and still but not a mp3 playe rcosts a good grand

most members like to have Multi functioncamcorders that cando everything.

i also would like a smaller unit but am stickingwith a pro camcorder that gives me the bang for the buck 32x optical 5 hr batt life etc......
