Hey all, im in the market for a small portable hd camcorder (not overly concerned with still photography) for an upcoming road trip to CA.

I'm torn between the Sony TG3 and the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000. For the most part the Sony seems to be coming out on top, reviews saying that the build and video quality is superb. I'm concerned it can only capture interlaced and not progressive though. I read a review where one guy said panning from left to right showed jittering on playback.

The Xacti on the other hand captures in progressive but I have read that the OIS is terrible.

I'm happy enough with the sizes/prices of both cams. I have been planning this trip for a few years with friends so I just want something small which can capture great footage :o)

Can anyone offer any advice on these two cams or is there an alternative camera im not mentioning?

Thanks a mill, Tony
