Sorry about the triple post....haven't figured out how to delete a post yet. Tried to erase using edit function, but it didn't work.

theranman, I hope you're not referring to Sony's T9 propaganda, like this:

[align=center][/align]
[align=left]Ok, optical stabilization helps,but come on, thatbefore and after lookway over the top.
Most consumerdigicams don't have optical stabilization yet manage mostly crisp photos handheld. Like Iexplained earlier in this thread, digital image stabilization doesn't actually reduce image shake hitting the sensor and doesn't apply to still photos.[/align]

no, not that propaganda overexaggeration, but I think there's another example over on dcresource. It's two different shots of the same two cameras. One is definitely clearer. Bottom line: given the same camera, would it almost always take a better shot if it has optical stabilization? I might be willing to give up the 5X zoom of the C6 if the Sony T9 usually takes better shots due to its optical stabilization. I'm a newbie, so my trend of thought may be flawed.

http://www.plemix.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc? (they have the VPC-C6 for $499.99)

Watching Ristraman's low-light video's I wonder if both cameras were set at the same white balance. See page 83 of the Xacti C5 manual on how to manually set the white balance.
In any case, many thanks for showing those video samples... and art!
