Thats what people are stating and I haven't had problems with any of the 5 videos I have taken...I guess in bright sunlight and videoing against the sun it would be very hard, but then it would be with any camera...if electrical lights are the problem set the White Balance to incandescent and it will all but eliminate it...

my friend has a zs3 and when then were in vagas they had the streaks when they were panning to take the strip. It does happen. And there is allot of zs7 sample that show the streaking from may different users. The ZS's are great camera. But the cdd are prone to it.

Are there any HD video cameras that are as small as, say, the SD4000/Ixus 300 HS, and have excellent still image quality?

I have an SD4000/Ixus 300 HS with a CMOS sensor. Unfortunately, the images lack detail when zoomed in compared older Canon cameras from the same series. Do CMOS sensors produce less detail than CCD?

They are about the same actually. They are just better for low light shooting.

I think I will go for the zs7. My conclusion is that for my needs no current camera would be better when everything is considered. I still think that LX5 would be better since I don't really need the long zoom, but LX5 is not out yet and when it comes out it will be expensive.
