We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with a Full HD video and we think the Coolpix S9500, or the Coolpix S9400 both from Nikon or the Fujifilm FinePix X10 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a camera with a larger screen size then you might also want to look at the X100 (£425.00) (2.8"), or the FinePix X100S (2.8") both from Fujifilm or the Samsung DV300 (3") which also has a higher rating.
