I purchased this the first time around on Woot! and I am very pleased with it. Even with the anti-shake turned on you must pan fairly slowly or you will still see some jerkiness. I had a friend make a video from the top of a college football stadium of his son's marching band, and I swear the quality is not that far from broadcast quality. But, the features I like the best are its easy menu and its really good performance as a still camera; I have gotten really fine results on stills. And, you can grab a still while taking video. Better yet, if you hold down the still shutter button it will take really good multiple frame shots (5 or 10 second, I can't remember.) Just make sure you have a class 4 or better SD card. It will only take video continuosly for 30 minutes; not a problem for me, but buyer beware. You also might think about a second battery because you can not use the camera while it is charging, and the only way to charge the battery is while it is in the camera. I have a 720p Kodak HD camera and like the Sanyo much, much more.
