According to Sanyo specs

Hd2 digital image stabilzation: stills; no, video; yes

How can this be so? Any digital camera in this age must have image stabilzation. No buts about it! A 7 megapixel is a serious camera. There's no excuse for this omission. So is the image quality comprimised with no stabilization. Anyone make prints yet? How's the quality?

The Hd2 is on my shortlist along with a Casio.

You have to remember that the HD2 isn't a pure digital camera, it's a hybrid camera, so my high level "thought" is that it's not as good as any pure digital camera, and it's not as good as any video camera, but it does both quite well (in a VERY small package).

Video stabalization can be done in easier ways then still stabalization (IMHO) so may be easier to implement.

Most cameras never used to have stabalization so prints are going to be just fine as long as you have a steady hand, the one "issue" about not having stabalization is that since it doesn't have a viewfinder on the camera you only hold it in your hands (where old style cameras with an optical viewfinder got stabalized against your head as well as in your hands).
