i have both of those. the s7 has better quality. the only tways the s26 is better are the longer zoom and optical stabilization
i am a camcorder novice and will only need to use it for like home videos, etc. i was considering buying the panasonic sdr-s7 but then i saw the panasonic sdr-s26. now i am a student so my budget is somewhat limited. is the sdr-s26 such a vast improvement that you think i should save up towards it or will the sdr-s7 suit me fine?
thanks for your advice.
ps- i am nto looking to do any fancy editing and i understand the problems that will occur in low light/night. thanks.
