The new Pany TZ5 looks like a real option for those of us who like to do everything with one small shirt pocket camera. Among other things, there's 10X zoom, zoom during video and a 3" LCD with 460K pixels.
I've tried several small cameras, including the Sanyo C5, Sanyo CG65 and briefly the Sanyo HD 700. I keep falling back on a Canon A710 for the video quality, the ease of use with the optical viewfinder and the still image quality. I've enjoyed the Sanyo CG65 for every use except outdoors in sunshine, where I find the LCD difficult to use. I'm hopeful that the Pany TZ5's large high res screen will work for me.
