Canon Elura 65
Released January, 2004
The Pros:Small and sleek enough that you can take it out with you just in case. Gets beautiful shots in bright lighting. Optical zoom gets distant subjects in sharp focus and there is NO motor noise.
The Cons:Low light images don't get a lot of detail, hard to see what's happening. Hard to hold it steady, and no IS. Uses digital tapes to record video, which means no drag/drop interface for video files.
