    Does your camcorder take 5MP pictures? Can you set the photo quality and/or adjust the exposure settings? Does it even have a real usable flash?

    Didn't think so.

    About this camera, it's OLD. Comparable models were Canon S2, Sony H1, and Panasonic FZ-5. The strong points about this camera: good video, compact (smaller than it looks), nice design, flip/swivel LCD, 5x zoom. The weak points: image quality (not bad, but not great), no image stabilizer.

    #2. you need a film camera which has everything you need and 20M picture if you have a scanner.

    #4 My point is that #1 is comparing this digital camera to a camcorder.

    And no, I don't need a film camera to do what all that, any decent digital camera can do it, but no camcorder can do that (some can, but last time I checked they're very expensive).

    #4 is incorrect by any stretch of the imagination. You cannot capture additional picture resolution by scanning a printed picture. You end up scanning dust particles. The resolution of 35mm film can be quantified, but it's much less than "20M" or "20 Mega pixels" as he expresses.
