Better DigiStillCam? I'm not sure (I have Canon Powershot IS2)...I just know I am more familiar with it so I know how to set it for what I want...I know I can go down to 50ASA (vs. 80ASA on yours), but I am not sure how the smallest apetures stack up...I also know I have some modes where the picture is "flavored"...there is a "vivid" setting that has higher contrast and hotter colors that I use particularly for overcast days.
As far as video, I have Mini DVD camera that is a few years old that is not too hard to download from, but I bought Sony Vegas for editing (I'm a PC guy). Your HD video is probably clearer. We will see next year....
I run pc as well. I have PS CS2 for photo editing and the flyers and use Sony Vegas Pro 8.0 for video editing. Raw videos I posted were just uploaded through photobucket.com
Once you explained to me the ISO stuff I was able to get my setting worked out for motion blur. Nothing like what JJacobs or Dave can get; but hell - I got my camera for free - ME NO COMPLAIN! :) LOL
I just wish I had a fire port so I can get these videos I have on dvd :(
