Want HD video -- should I upgrade my SD1100 to an SD940?
Jan 1, 2010

I was all set to buy an SD940 for its HD video capability. I'm happy with the image quality of my current SD1100. After reading info here about noisier images in the latest 12MP Canon compacts, I'm concerned about the SD940's image quality -- I definitely do not want to upgrade my camera to a new one that has inferior still images.

I only use this camera for snapshots -- excellent low light performance is desired but not critical. I don't need any really advanced features except HD video support.

Would setting the photo quality on the SD940 to M1 actually improve the images?

Are there any better options for me to get HD video (perhaps from a different manufacturer)?

Any help is much appreciated.
