Then again, I ventured into the Apple store and the iTouch was calling my name. So was the iPad and the Mac Air. And there is a consideration about moving everything to a Smartphone.

This is a Sanyo PR video about the features of the camcorder.
The pocket cams generally don't have optical zoom without user modification. 3x is the bare minimum but it does help. The wide angle lens doesn't hurt either.
