Does anyone know of a camcorder/still camera combination of the quality of the Sanyo Xactis that is similar in size and user friendliness?

I will likely buy the HD1a, pending Steve's review,mainly to get the 10X zoom. I use the C5 now and really love it. The other camcorders stay home or in the car and I use the little Sanyo a lot, mainly because I have it with me. The quality of the videos and stills are both just fine with me. I'm aware of all the little problems with focus and zoom noise but they don't bother me at all.

I have investigated the Panasonic S-100 and 150 and they are very nice camcorders. On paper they sound as handy as the Sanyos but in side by side comparison they are not nearly as user friendly, especially with one hand operation.

Any input or referral to other sites would be appreciated.

Setter Dog,

I've found an interesting article: "Sanyo Xacti VPC-C6 vs. Toshiba Gigashot GSC-R30".

It is like comparing apple with orange!

The Toshiba is more like a normal DV with HD. So you want one or the other. They are not in the same category!

I checked the specs on the Toshiba,.......to me the most important characteristics of the camcorder I want is size and handling qualities with one hand. I think the HD1a is about maximum size that works for my purposes. I recently heard of an improved C6 that sounds great, but not available in U.S.
