I was wondering if anyone has picked one of these up yet, and if so, what you think of it. It seems to have just about everything I need, and the price is right, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of coverage on it as of yet. I read the cnet review, but in general I find CNET to be an unreliable source when it comes to information, and I would like to find some more professional opinions, and even image quality comparisons if you can find them.
The two other cameras I'm considering right now are the Panosonic FZ27 and the Canon S3 IS. Both have historically better picture taking quality than similar Kodak models, but both are also memory hogs when it comes to the video-recording function, which is something I plan on making significant use of recording concert footage and whatnot, (does anyone here regularly use their DC as a camcorder? If so, what kind of battery life can one expect using it like that?).
So what would your recommendations be between these three cameras? Or is there another I should be considering? Thanks in advance, everyone.
