Default ZR1 vs ZR3 vs ZS3

Hello,

I need your help to decide between these nice cameras. (Or another ones you can suggest me). Diferent zoom x is not important for me:

1. IQ differents? I have read that maybe it is more or less the same.
2. Video, how about the sound? Stereo? Same quality?
3. Any options you have in ZS3 not in ZR3 or ZR1?
4. Bracketing, you can adjust in one of then in 1 or 2.0 steps, and do you know how much time it need to take these photo series for Bracketing? (HDR)

I have tested recently HX5v, and I donīt like the colors it produce at all, I work in the middle of golf courses, and live in a villa with grass in the garden... and I had never seen worse greens in photos than with this camera. Awful! Yellowish! And inside shot, with WB auto the same, all the people seem "Simpsons cartoons".

zychymalaga-

Of the three cameras, and I have tried them all, I much prefer the ZR1. In the USA it is currently selling at $(US)185.00. Good video, average sound, and no exposure bracketing. But at that price I can hardly complain.

Thanks Sarah,
In IQ terms and videoQ terms, sound in video, whatīs the best?

It doesnt matter the price

zychymalaga-

Its a toss-up between the ZR1 and the ZS3. I would say that the ZS3 is better, but no Exposure Bracketing there either. These are P+S cameras, not DSLR cameras.
