Am I correct in believing the Sanyo's still has the best stills? I'm not looking for high end DSR work... just something good enough to replace my $200 Canon camera.

If a hybrid cam is that which takes both HD video and stills then here is another

lots of videos from the ts1/ts2 can be found on youtube and vimeo

Incidentaly the previous version the ts1 is on auction on Ebay with big savings on cost

Indeed, I own two of these:

The video is superb, primarily because the lens is near-perfect.

Those panasonics are all cameras with camcorder functionality and not camcorders with camera functionality.

Ha ha ha!! The state of the art has brought them so close together that there is no significant difference at the lower end of the market. All that's left is preference and opinion and in some countries they pay more tax on a camcorder and less tax on a camera

There is a significant difference. I believe cameras don't compress as well. It also can't shoot videos for an extended period of time. That's fine if you only plan to shoot for minutes at a time, but that's not what people use camcorders for! Also, a camera is just a bit awkward to hold for an extended period of time.
