We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with a video capability and we think the Fujifilm FinePix JX500[plb_1672380_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a digital camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the Sony DSC-W830[plb_3766520_price] (8x), or the Nikon Coolpix S5300[plb_2272796_price] (8x) which also has a higher rating.
