    I am glad to have learned this camera is coming out shortly.

    I have a decent DSLR from Pentax and have been looking to replace my compact camera (Canon A620) that I can have with me at all times. It needs to produce very good image quality, but since the DSLR doesn’t do video, it needs to excel at that.

    I heard from others about the Canon S95 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5, and research led me also to the Nikon P7000. One thing they all have in common is max HD video of 720p. While this is good enough with my present tv, my new tv will be 1080p. I don’t want to buy another camera for at least 4-5 years.

    Olympus has the XZ-1 model which in addition to the relatively large sensor and fast lens, does 1080p HD videos. But for whatever reasons Olympus choose to use the avi format which limits you to 2GB (7 minutes). I could live with this, and do like the external mic option.

    This SZ-30MR does 1040p HD mp4. I’m greatly being swayed by its DUAL TruePic™ III+ technology. No other compact camera captures HD movies and 16MP still images at the same time! Shoot simultaneous wide-angle and telephoto movies, and full 1080p HD video and VGA movie files. RADICAL!

    I would have to trade-off the larger sensor in the XZ-1, but do gain a larger zoom- 25-600 (F3-6.9).With all its features, I’m sure I’ll be happy with it for several years.
