I have the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5. It has face detection, Image stabilization, 28mm wide angle, 10x zoom, etc. It takes fantastic photos AND video. I got tired of lugging both types of cameras around and was looking for a video camera that was easier to upload to the computer for making DVDs and putting clips on Blogs. This digital still camera takes GREAT video. It's small enough to slip into a purse too. Very easy to use. Shop around. I found some great buys online.
