hi stabiloflash,

i wonder why you consider to buy one of those cameras. I believe ZR1 is considerable bigger than 100IS. Both produce good picture. But in some of the areas, like burst mode and flash range, ZR1 is better. However, it is still up to you what is the most important features that you need. Go to the camera shop and try it out. And for your info, if you decided to buy ZR1, and you need spare battery, you need to buy the original battery. It is quite costly :)

Ur welcome.

But for me, I think if you want me to choose, I still choose for ZR1. Considering the focal range

ZR1 25-200mm (8x zoom)
100IS 33-100mm (3x zoom)

So ZR1 able to cover most of the distances. Its quite good for travelling. Just my opinion. :)

Well...
You can consider Fuji Finepix F200 - $369
Ixus 120IS - $429
But i think you better do research yourself before you buy the camera. YOu can refer for the website like www. photographyblog.com

I myself use Panasonic TZ7, similar model with ZR1. But it cost more than $500
