So far, no one has built a camera that is both a good video and a good still camera.

There are combo cameras around but you have to ask youself, do I want good video or good still pictures. You can not have them both.

Choose one of the camcorders you like and then also choose a Panasonic DMC-FZ20 for the still pictures.

You should also post your question on the Camcorders forum.
