I am thinking of travelling light with my family and instead of the usual camcorder plus DSLR, I wanted to get a 2 in one.
I hope to look for the following:
1) Decent low noise (indoors without flash and acceptable ISO shots of 1600
2) Good HD recording with zoom functions (720p ok as I understand 1080p will need lots of memory cards).
3) Good battery life
4) Quick focusing
I shortlisted the following:
Canon SX 20IS
Panasonic GH1, LX3, GF1
Any recommendations welcomed. If anyone is letting go of their camera (less than one year old and in excellent condition), I would be happy to discuss as well.
